Kuehne + Nagel Introduces New e-Logistics Platform

Kuehne + Nagel Introduces New e-Logistics Platform
Danny Gill

Kuehne + Nagel and the TRANSPOREON Group have entered into a partnership to implement a new digital collaboration platform with Full Truckload (FTL) and Less-than-Truckload (LTL) carriers.

Kuehne + Nagel’s goal with the new platform is to use the e-logistics network to enable increased operational efficiency and real time transparency along the transport chain. They choose TRANSPOREON network for their already well-established network in Europe, with TRANSPOREON boasting more than 57,000 carriers using the platform on a daily basis. This partnership will allow carriers to use one integrated platform instead of signing up for multiple market places and allowing Kuehne + Nagel to easily connect with additional carriers.

The carriers will in turn then have real-time access to Kuehne + Nagel’s transport requirements across Europe and be able to quickly respond to the demand with their available capacity. “The new process allows optimising truck load factors, reducing operating costs and environmental impact”, said Dr. Nils Wemhoener, Senior Vice President Operations Overland at Kuehne + Nagel. “Using the TRANSPOREON platform will therefore drive efficiencies for our customers and carriers.”
