Kuehne + Nagel launches TRANSPOREON platform as digital carrier interface

Sept 09, 2016: Kuehne + Nagel and the TRANSPOREON Group, the operator of the leading European cloud-based e-logistics network, have entered into a partnership to implement a highly efficient digital collaboration platform with FTL and LTL carriers.

Kuehne + Nagel will migrate its processes for transport assignment, transport execution and monitoring in the Full Truckload (FTL) and Less-than-Truckload (LTL) segments to the TRANSPOREON platform in Europe in order to accelerate and simplify the interaction with its customers and carriers.

In addition, the use of the e-logistics network will enable Kuehne + Nagel to increase operational efficiency and real time transparency along the transport chain.

This innovative approach is part of the company’s digital evolution and underpinned by experience and competence gained through the acquisition of ReTrans, a US overland logistics solutions provider, using a digital logistics platform to connect to its carrier base.

In Europe, Kuehne + Nagel chose the well-established TRANSPOREON network, which is already used by more than 57,000 carriers in their day-to-day operations. This partnership will allow carriers to use one integrated platform instead of signing up for multiple market places. A proven onboarding process will allow Kuehne + Nagel to easily connect with additional carriers.

The carriers will 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 Nils Wemhoener, senior vice president operations Overland at Kuehne + Nagel.

“Using the TRANSPOREON platform will therefore drive efficiencies for our customers and carriers.”

The roll-out will begin in France, one of Kuehne + Nagel’s key overland markets, by end of September 2016.
