KN Pledge also promises an extended cargo liability covering a wide range of causes or damage with up to USD 100,000 per container. Cause that is covered in the liability is others fire, explosion, the act of God and act of war.
Member of the Managing Board of Kuehne + Nagel International AG and responsible for Sea freight, Otto Schacht said, “We are proud to be the first in sea freight logistics to provide this innovative and comprehensive pledge to our customers. What is special about this Kuehne + Nagel online service solution is that it enables our customers to receive offers for FCL in addition to LCL shipments within seconds – from virtually any point in the world to any other point with an additional guaranteed lead time. Furthermore, we offset the CO2 footprint for this full container shipment.”
