Kuehne + Nagel and Zebraxx set up partnership
Kuehne + Nagel (K+N) and Zebraxx, an application service provider of logistics solutions, have entered into a strategic partnership to provide innovative last mile shipment visibility for K+N’s customers, thus enhancing K+N’s e-touch capabilities.
K+N customers have enjoyed the benefits of Zebraxx for several years; almost 10 million transactions were handled by the system in 2017. Now, the alliance will strengthen K+N’s capacity to offer additional methods for collecting and sharing delivery information, such as real-time vehicle location, photographic evidence of the state of consignments and delivery confirmation, IoT validation or electronic proof-of-delivery (e-pod) – independent from backbone systems and carriers used.
Customers will be further integrated in the data exchange; enhanced functionalities on mobile devices, like alerts or e-pod via social messengers, will improve the seamless interaction along the supply chain. (mw)
