Kuehne + Nagel has announced that they will be implementing the CargoSphere Rate Technology Platform across the entire organization. The move was due to in part to Kuehne + Nagel’s push for a digital solution for seafreight services, including moving to direct carrier rate connections in the CargoSphere Rate Mesh. An important aspect of Kuehne + Nagel’s digital evolution in seafreight is the ability to receive ocean freight rates and subsequent rate updates directly from ocean carriers for an immediate upload into its centralized rate base in the CargoSphere cloud.
“CargoSphere’s innovative approach to freight rate management is an important component of our digital evolution. We share a common vision with CargoSphere that encompasses using technology to improve the time-consuming, inefficient aspects of seafreight rate management. New, fresh ways to approach longstanding rate practices is what we have discovered in CargoSphere,” said Thorsten Meincke, Senior Vice President, Global Seafreight at Kuehne + Nagel. “By further enhancing our seafreight operations with CargoSphere we will achieve a faster, better process for managing seafreight rates and better data quality. Through this we can bring even greater value to our customers.”
“We’re thrilled to support Kuehne + Nagel’s digital evolution and are looking forward to a strong collaborative partnership that champions Kuehne + Nagel’s digital readiness,” said Neil Barni, president of CargoSphere.
