The dashboard utilizes a geo system cloud solution to enable customers to track their containers in real-time, reducing manual effort and improving accuracy in milestone identification and schedule deviations. By leveraging multiple data sources, including carrier data and vessel trackers, the Container Dashboard enhances transparency and allows for early preventive measures. It provides notifications on milestones and dwell times, offers analytics for route optimization, and improves the accuracy of Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA). Kuehne+Nagel’s Container Dashboard aims to enhance customer experience, streamline operations, and optimize supply chain efficiency.

(PRESS RELEASE) HAMBURG, 16-May-2023 — /EuropaWire/ — Kuehne+Nagel (SWX: KNIN), one of the world’s leading logistics companies, announces that it has launched the Container Dashboard as part of its myKN online platform, addressing the growing need for container visibility in supply chain management. The new dashboard leverages a geo system cloud solution to provide customers with real-time tracking of all their containers, alleviating congestion and capacity constraints.

Container Dashboard: Real-Time Insights and Enhanced Efficiency

The Container Dashboard, integrated into Kuehne+Nagel’s digital solution myKN, revolutionizes container tracking by offering customers comprehensive visibility and reducing manual efforts in monitoring milestones and deviations from planned schedules. By eliminating previous blind spots in supply chain transparency, it enhances accuracy, productivity, and operational efficiency while enabling proactive measures for cargo management.

Enhanced Accuracy through Multiple Data Sources

The Container Dashboard draws upon multiple data sources to ensure accuracy. Notifications on upcoming milestones, including pick-up, departure, demurrage and detention, pre- and on-carriage, and transshipments, enhance the transparency of the customer’s door-to-door transport chain. The user-friendly interface displays container flows, dwell times, and highlights deviations from the initial carrier schedule. Long-term analytics empower customers to optimize routes that consistently exceed dwell times, contributing to streamlined operations and cost savings. The real-time geo system integrates telemetry and gathers data from various internal and external industry sources, such as carrier data, terminal information, route maps, and vessel trackers, enhancing the precision of Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) calculations.

Enhanced Customer Experience and Efficiency

The Container Dashboard signifies Kuehne+Nagel’s commitment to enhancing customer experience by providing advanced visibility and transparency throughout the container journey. Customers can now make informed decisions, mitigate risks, and take proactive actions to optimize their supply chain operations.

The Container Dashboard is now available within the myKN online platform, offering Kuehne+Nagel customers seamless access to real-time container tracking and a comprehensive overview of their containerized cargo.

Otto Schacht, Member of the Management Board of Kuehne+Nagel International AG, responsible for Sea Logistics, says: “To meet the demands of today’s markets, shipping visibility must enable logistics operators to detect exceptions in real time and take preventive action before an order is disrupted. The Container Dashboard gives our customers an unparalleled edge in exception management. Backed by Kuehne+Nagel’s global network, which offers a wide range of alternative shipping options, our expert teams can react and reschedule faster in case of route plan deviations or delays. This development is in line with our Roadmap 2026, which aims to strategically expand Kuehne+Nagel’s digital ecosystem for a better Customer Experience.”
