Kuehne + Nagel is to move processes for transport assignment, transport execution and monitoring in the full truckload (FTL) and less-than-truckload (LTL) segments to the Transporeon platform in Europe.
“The new process allows optimising truck load factors, reducing operating costs and environmental impact”, said D. Nils Wemhoener, senior vice president operations overland at Kuehne + Nagel. “Using the Transporeon platform will therefore drive efficiencies for our customers and carriers.”
Transporeon is currently used by more than 57,000 carriers in their day-to-day operations.
The roll-out will begin in France by end of September 2016. The move will allow carriers to use one integrated platform instead of signing up for multiple market places. An on-boarding process will allow Kuehne + Nagel to connect with additional carriers.
The carriers will have real-time access to Kuehne + Nagel’s transport requirements across Europe and be able to respond to the demand with their available capacity.
