Kuehne + Nagel’s SeaExplorer keeps Supply Chains Running

Kuehne + Nagel has launched an enhanced version of its SeaExplorer online platform. Especially in the current volatile market environment, transparency is crucial for companies requiring sea freight services. Industry sources predict a high rate of canceled sailings in various trades in the coming weeks. Schedule reliability is currently at 65%, the lowest level in the past ten years. 

New SeaExplorer

The new SeaExplorer features come just in time to mitigate these disruptions. In one single digital platform, it is now possible to find the best option for container shipping needs, including transparency on alternative routings and sailings. SeaExplorer customers can improve their shipment planning and inventory management with the help of artificial intelligence and access to big data.

Otto Schacht, Member of the Management Board of Kuehne + Nagel International AG, responsible for sea freight, says: “Given the challenges of COVID-19, the enhanced SeaExplorer supports shippers not only with realistic lead times for routings but also with service updates and up-to-date sailing schedules showing alternative departures for blanked sailings. This allows customers to quickly and efficiently compare options across all liner services to easily adjust routings according to their requirements for speed and reliability.”

As a new key feature, SeaExplorer also provides detailed visibility of CO2 emissions per service loop and port to port routing – a core element of Kuehne + Nagel’s Net Zero Carbon program. “This feature allows our customers to choose the most sustainable transport option”, says Otto Schacht.
