Kuehne + Nagel wins Lenovo’s 2016 “Logistics Excellence Award”
The award granted at the annual Lenovo Supplier Conference in Hangzhou, China, honours Kuehne + Nagel’s consistently high performance and operational excellence for the international supply chain solution (ISC) into EMEA while offering added value and real-time visibility.
Kuehne + Nagel has been awarded for its management of Lenovo’s business into Europe, Middle East and Africa as well as into several countries in Asia and Latin America. Furthermore, a cross-docking facility handles all last-mile deliveries across Europe in a high security overland network while the inbound transports are based on ocean freight. The award is also related to Kuehne + Nagel’s involvement in managing goods arriving on rail containers from the destination terminal, ensuring efficient and fast customs clearance and delivery thus improving turnaround times and serviceability.
Kuehne + Nagel’s ISC solutions enables the entire order management process to be digitalized down to article level from origin to final destination of single shipments to the end customer. With this supply chain visibility and pro-active control, Kuehne + Nagel meets the highest standards and customer requirements, also in challenging situations or during shipment peaks.
