Kuehne + Nagel Adopts CargoSphere Rate Platform

Kuehne + Nagel Adopts CargoSphere Rate Platform

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.

One of the world’s biggest logistics companies, Kuwait headquartered Agility, recently announced a major new investment of $100 million over three years to develop and launch Shipa.com. The new digital platform will allow businesses, entrepreneurs and consumers to manage their freight, e-commerce, and urban deliveries online. Chairwoman for Agility, Henadi Al-Saleh said, “Shipa.com makes life easier through technology, whether you are a small business running your supply chain with a few clicks, or a consumer getting your shopping delivered with a few taps on your phone, Shipa.com makes logistics convenient, jargon-free, trackable, accountable and accessible.” Shipa.com will provide the following services: Shipa Freight that will allow small businesses to get instant and transparent freight quotes along with the ability to book, pay and track ocean and air shipments around the world on any mobile or another digital device. Shipa E-commerce enables online merchant’s access to the world’s most complex and fastest growing e-commerce networks. The service will integrate freight, fulfilment, delivery and returns solutions throughout the Arabian Gulf, along with additional reach in Africa and Europe planned for the future. Shipa Delivery will provide businesses and consumers with on-demand same-day, next-day or cross-border delivery across the whole region of Arabian Gulf. Al-Saleh added, “Logistics is the backbone of commerce. But it’s complex, and that complexity is disproportionately difficult for small businesses to navigate. Small businesses often lack access to the logistics resources, tools and solutions that larger businesses have,” “No wonder then, that we interviewed 800 small and medium-sized businesses around the world, we found that 78% wanted to see their logistics move online. Shipa helps close that gap, empowering small businesses to take advantage of the opportunities being created by the global digital economy.” Considered by Al-Saleh as the innovation arm of Agility, Shipa.com will hasten the introduction of technology, development of new digital products. Al-Saleh concluded, “Shipa.com is the marriage of Agility’s logistics expertise and resources and the digital-first capabilities of the Shipa platform. It offers enormous value for our customers and brings new value to our company.”
