A common purpose: Delivering progress to society

We believe in contributing to the world around us and thus being a part of something greater. As a logistics partner, we see ourselves as part of the big picture, bringing people and communities all over the world closer together. That is why we dedicate our time to ensuring that people all over the world have access to what powers their businesses and lives, from technical components, medication and perishables to urgent spare parts for an aircraft.

We strive to have a positive impact on the world around us by working towards sustainable logistics. Our Net Zero Carbon initiative aims to achieve carbon neutrality for our sea freight shipments by 2030.  

We seek to make a difference today, for the people of tomorrow. Since 1890, we’ve been committed to delivering progress to society. And as the world around us changes, that commitment stays the same.

Our strategic approach: Customers first.

We contribute to the business success of each of our customers, be it by setting up an efficient supply chain for a high-tech SME (small to medium-sized enterprise) in Hong Kong, enabling full visibility and control of shipments through our intuitive platforms, or ensuring the timely arrival of a flower shipment to its recipient in Glasgow.

In order to develop new and tailored solutions, we collaborate closely with industries and companies and use the latest technology. This closeness to our customers allows us to develop flexible solutions, offering peace of mind to all parties involved. Our end-to-end logistics supply chain solution for the pharma and healthcare industry, for instance, has proven successful in meeting the specific demands of this highly regulated industry. 

We are the partner that empowers your bold promises, by designing solutions that address ever-changing consumer demands.

Our source of inspiration: Our colleagues.

Change is created by those who see the future as clearly as the present, who anticipate the challenges of tomorrow today, who are unwilling to accept routine when reinvention is required. These are the people who work at Kuehne+Nagel. Resourceful, diligent, thorough. Our work ethic is built on ceaseless hard work and dedication to our craft, as well as a commitment to the promises we make. It is due to this diligence that we can have more than 400,000 happy customers.  Empathy and credibility inform the choices we make every day. 

Together, we build a company culture that puts humans at the heart of everything we do – a company that is as great to work for, as it is to work with.
