Kuehne + Nagel Launches Digital Platform for Seafreight Service Offerings

Updated: Oct 4, 2018

Global logistics provider Kuehne + Nagel has added more digital tools to its portfolio with its newly launched Sea Explorer platform offering digitally enabled insights into the largest seafreight service network, based on reliability, sustainability and transit time.

Sea Explorer offers Kuehne + Nagel’s customers an easy gateway to the Blue Anchor Network, the company’s comprehensive overview of direct global seafreight services.

With access to more than 3,000 vessels and more than 750 direct weekly services, the Blue Anchor Network provides maximum flexibility in global container transport for all trades. Sea Explorer’s unique offering is based on the high level of integration and partnership with all major carriers, it said in a press release.

The platform is an extension of Kuehne + Nagel’s outstanding quote, book and track capabilities. It is based on business intelligence derived from different operational data: algorithms built from robust industry expertise are paired with big data and predictive analytics provided by Kuehne + Nagel’s data company LogIndex.

Within Sea Explorer, services are ranked by smart indicators, based on big data technology, including a dynamic reliability indicator (DRI), emission score, nominal carrying capacity insights and realistic transit times for every service.

Today about 75% of the vessels arrive on-time and volatile reliability in lead times is one of the biggest challenges customers face in managing their inventory levels adequately. Through Sea Explorer customers can now access comparative insights on service specific elements.

In line with its commitments to protect environment and the oceans, Kuehne + Nagel’s new platform also incorporates the carbon emission rating, which actively supports customers in helping them to reduce their carbon footprint within the supply chain.

Kuehne + Nagel International board member responsible for Seafreight Otto Schacht said: “High levels of data transparency are of utmost importance in logistics. Through Sea Explorer our customers will be able to access the world’s largest portfolio of seafreight service offerings. Thus, they can base their respective decisions not just on transit time parameters but also on sophisticated comparative data such as service reliability and emissions ratings.” We strive to provide the maximum visibility, flexibility and information to our customers throughout the world. Sea Explorer is another important step in our digitalisation approach.

Kuehne + Nagel added that Sea Explorer will be further enhanced based on close collaboration with customers.
