Technologies and Tools

Project Description

User-friendly business platforms and applications that help automate the process of work are becoming crucial for the industries. Kuehne + Nagel is going with the times and has digitalized successfully all the provided services.

For example, FreightNet is an online solution that gives a possibility to get quotes and book less-than-containerload (LCL) shipments worldwide in a quick and simple way. This tool is beneficial for both existing and potential clients of the KN.

TradeLOG is a tool for road transport operators and procurement managers, that allows to validate the cost calculations for road hauling by subcontractors. Among the benefits of the project are improvement of the price negotiation practice with its forwarders and costs savings up to 2.5%.

Digital monitoring, control and visibility of the cargo temperature in different types of transport are the key features of the Physical Monitoring tool. The system is integrated with cloud of sensors and allows setting up different temperature patterns and alarm scenarios for each parcel.

Software development for the logistics & transportation industry

The logistics and transportation industry heavily relies on the coordinated efforts of multiple agents: shippers, drivers, freight companies, customs officials, forwarders and many others, often located all around the world. This is exactly why the use of specialized software solutions is more than justified in these industries.
