Kuehne+Nagel Sea Logistics
Kuehne+Nagel expands online full container pricing and booking services
- New FCL Spot service for instant, fixed online prices for standard full containers
- Upgrade to FCL Pledge premium service possible with guaranteed lead time and full money-back guarantee
- Customers can choose from carbon-free transport options
Kuehne+Nagel has further expanded its online pricing and booking services for sea freight. Customers can now select from two customisable standard full container load (FCL) products on the myKN platform. Backed by Kuehne+Nagel's dedicated sea freight expertise and global service network of 150,000 port connections, the new FCL Spot option and the existing FCL Pledge offer cross-modal, direct self-booking at an instant, fixed price with no cancellation fees. In addition, FCL Pledge guarantees a lead time including money-back warranty, extended cargo liability and CO2 neutrality. FCL Spot users can choose between optional solutions to immediately avoid transport emissions, such as using biofuel. For more complex shipments, both options can be tailored to a customer's specific needs.
Otto Schacht, member of the Management Board at Kuehne + Nagel International AG, responsible for Sea Logistics, comments: "Against the current challenges in the sea freight market, it is important for us to further optimise processes in order to speed up the entire supply chain of our customers. The expansion of our online quoting services, allowing for quick and reliable price comparisons and shipment bookings for more than 100 countries worldwide, is a logical consequence of this."
myKN is a platform that gives customers full control over their shipments. With a suite of collaborative features, myKN gives customers a digital tool to manage their sea, air and road logistics. The range of services covers requesting quotes, bookings and shipment tracking—plus, users are provided with analytics and industry insights. The platform is complemented by CO2 emissions data and the seaexplorer tool, which provides information on global routing options. In sea freight, customers can also take advantage of an online quoting and booking option for less-than-container loads.
