COP28 has appointed Kuehne+Nagel as the official logistics partner at the global 2023 UN Climate Change Conference in Dubai.
From 30 November until 12 December, the event is expected to convene over 70,000 accredited visitors to the restricted Blue Zone and 50,000 daily visitors to the public Green Zone.
At Expo City Dubai, Kuehne+Nagel will be the sole ground handler responsible for steering all logistics activities on-site, like building country pavilions and stages for panel discussions.
In addition, the team will support participants in their end-to-end and local logistics needs, from international freight forwarding, customs clearance and warehousing, to venue delivery all supported by Kuehne+Nagel’s global network of experts and its portfolio of low-emission solutions.
Damian Raczynski, National Manager UAE and Oman at Kuehne+Nagel, said: “We are proud to have been appointed for this important conference.
“Kuehne+Nagel is well-known in the events and exhibition space in Europe, and this appointment underpins our efforts to further develop this segment in the Middle East, an area with great infrastructure to accommodate this industry.”
This partnership comes just over a month after Hapag-Lloyd entered into a partnership with DB Schenker to use a waste- and residue-based biofuel to cut emissions during container shipping.
