Investigation of international freight forwarding industry
On October 10, 2007, various competition authorities have carried out an unannounced inspection at a number of international freight forwarding companies. The inspection encompassed amongst others Kuehne + Nagel in Switzerland, in the USA, and in the UK. The investigation relates to alleged anti-competitive activities in the area of international freight forwarding.
Currently, Kuehne + Nagel sees no reason to suspect any such violations and considers the inspection excessive.
The company views any form of competition violation very seriously and ensures full cooperation with all involved authorities in this matter.
