Swiss-based logistics giant Kuehne + Nagel has entered into a partnership with European based e-logistics network operator, the Transporeon Group, to implement a digital collaboration platform with FTL and LTL carriers.
The partnership will reportedly allow carriers to use one integrated platform instead of signing up for multiple market places and provide real-time access to Kuehne + Nagel’s transport requirements across Europe to quickly respond to the demand with their available capacity.
According to Kuehne + Nagel, the well-established Transporeon network is already used by more than 57,000 carriers in their day-to-day operations, with a proven onboarding process that will allow Kuehne + Nagel to easily connect with additional carriers.
“The new process allows optimising truck load factors, reducing operating costs and environmental impact”, said Dr. Nils Wemhoener, Senior Vice President Operations Overland at Kuehne + Nagel.
“Using the Transporeon platform will therefore drive efficiencies for our customers and carriers.”
The rollout will reportedly begin in France by end of September 2016.
