High time for action. The approaching end date of their lease contract eventually became the trigger to contact Freestone for a stay-or-leave analysis. It soon became clear that there were better alternatives for Kuehne+Nagel to make a leap forward in terms of work environment and housing.


  • Customer: Kuehne+Nagel
  • Project: Stay-or-leave & site selection
  • Timing: 2014 - 2015
  • Location: Antwerp
  • Size: 2,560 m²

The result

After a thorough market screening, the Post X site near Berchem station turned out to be the best option. Thanks to more efficient use of space, Freestone succeeded in offering a more qualitative working environment with almost the same number of m² - which can also accommodate the future growth of Kuehne + Nagel.

Freestone negotiated a nice design budget with the owner of the building and also obtained a rent-free period. The Freestone project manager also took on the implementation of the new working environment. From the preparation of specifications, the selection of suppliers and site follow-up to relocation assistance.
