Kuehne+Nagel boosts global track and trace services

Schindellegi, Switzerland: Kuehne and Nagel is using Zebraxx to provide last mile visibility for customers.

“Kuehne + Nagel customers have enjoyed the benefits of Zebraxx for several years; in 2017 almost 10 million transactions have been handled by the system,” the company says.

“Now, the growing alliance will strengthen Kuehne + Nagel’s capacity to offer additional methods for collecting and sharing delivery information, such as real-time vehicle location, photographic evidence of the state of consignments and delivery confirmation, IoT validation or electronic proof-of-delivery (ePOD) – independent from backbone systems and carriers used.

“Customers will be further integrated in the data exchange; enhanced functionalities on mobile devices, like alerts or ePOD via social messengers, will improve the seamless interaction along the supply chain.”

Gianfranco Sgro director, Kuehne+Nagel International and responsible for contract logistics says: “We are seeing an increasing need for improved visibility solutions to service our customers. As our environment becomes more and more digital, customers are demanding greater flexibility and options in the solutions we can offer them and all at a lower cost. Zebraxx has demonstrated a willingness to embrace innovative and imaginative ideas and transform them into valuable solutions for our business and our customers.”
