Kuehne + Nagel shows state of the art of digitization in logistics

Digitization is "in". At the same time, digitization is also a “buzzword”, behind which there is sometimes more the intention than the implementation. Not so at Kuehne + Nagel!

Stefan Viehmann, Senior Vice President Global Customer Solutions Kuehne + Nagel (AG & Co.) KG, Hamburg, and Jens Blume, Head of Customer Solutions Germany, Kuehne + Nagel (AG & Co.) KG, Bremen, showed concrete implementation of digitization technologies for global supply chains as part of an event for students with a focus on logistics and supply chain management.

Under the title "Digital transformation in transport logistics - On the way to seamless transport management", Mr. Viehmann and Mr. Blume first dealt with framework conditions and technologies before they discussed the concrete implementation at Kuehne + Nagel. Using a live demonstration, they impressively showed how digitization can be used today for global supply chain management.
In the second part of the courses, the students were then challenged: They should identify areas where additional digitization activities could be sensibly implemented at K + N.
An exciting lecture ended with interesting insights from a “leader in digitization”.
