New logistics IT system sets industry standard

Kuehne + Nagel has completed the global roll-out of the new version of its logistics information system “KN Login”. The high-speed technical platform delivers Internet-based premium supply chain visibility and reporting solutions. Leveraging Kuehne + Nagel’s single global operational system, the new technology substantially improves productivity, efficiency and usability for customers.

KN Login now offers customers an even safer and more user-friendly environment to connect with their business partners and to take advantage of Kuehne + Nagel’s global supply chain management solutions. Covering all of the Company’s business activities (sea, air, road and rail logistics as well as contract logistics), the new KN Login features a simplified, more efficient and unified look-and-feel personalised for each user. The system offers customised summary view screens, own reference terminology and an enhanced exception monitoring engine. In addition, Kuehne + Nagel’s single-sign-on portal provides configurable access rights for each user across logistical activities.

Kuehne + Nagel was one of the first logistics providers to offer customers award-winning global shipment and network visibility and monitoring solutions. Simple to implement and easy to maintain, the new KN Login sets the industry standard in performance and response times, increases visibility, provides comprehensive analytical reporting, and expedites implementation of complex logistics solutions.

Thorsten Meincke, Head of Customer Solutions and Global Sales, said “Improving on KN Login gave us a unique opportunity to build a compelling set of logistics information network solutions on an already tried-and-tested system. We are excited with this development as it enables our customers to efficiently manage their supply chains through optimised transparency of daily operations.”
