Kuehne + Nagel is the only logistics service provider among the 25 “world’s best companies”

Kuehne + Nagel has successfully defended its 23rd place in the second yearly ranking of the world’s 2,500 largest publicly-listed companies by the management consulting firm A.T. Kearney.

On behalf of BusinessWeek magazine, A.T. Kearney ranked companies with a minimum turnover of 10 billion dollars (of which at least one quarter must come from outside the company’s home region) according to their sales growth and compound annual growth rate (CAGR) or value creation over the last five years. Further criteria were commitment to inno­vation and expansion, portfolio diversification, strong management leadership and clear vision for the future.

As the only logistics service provider and – together with ABB – as the only Swiss-based company, Kuehne + Nagel was ranked among the best 25. Further to this, the study counts Kuehne + Nagel among those seven companies who “in particular have proven by their success that they are not one-time wonders [and] have been able to defend their status as Global Champions. […] The consistently strong performance of these seven companies is a testament to the strength of their corporate strategies and the resilience of their business model.”
