Kuehne + Nagel is launching its new global warehouse management system KN SwiftLOG, which it says is a scalable platform with global reach, powered by JDA Warehouse Management.

KN SwiftLOG will become the global standard of Kuehne + Nagel, upgrading more than 400 fulfilment centres across the world.

The major advanced picking enhancement technologies and communication platforms to exchange data with the major e-commerce players are already embedded.

Gianfranco Sgro, member of the Managing Board of Kuehne + Nagel International AG, responsible for Contract Logistics, said: “Consumer and business requirements are rapidly changing. Anticipating these trends, we constantly adapt the physical and logical organisation of our fulfilment centres and enhance our management warehouse systems.

“New key variables are process digitalisation, change in order profile, opportunistic inventory allocation and speed. Our customers will benefit from a state-of-the-art platform in the market, which is currently the most important single investment in contract logistics at Kuehne + Nagel.”
