Kuehne+Nagel - Automating information to optimize the contract packing supply chain process

Nulogy Stand: A50

Who is Kuehne+Nagel?

With approximately 76,000 employees at some 1,300 locations in over 100 countries, the greater Kuehne+Nagel Group is one of the world’s leading logistics companies. Kuehne+Nagel (K+N) Netherlands, with its headquarters based in Rotterdam, employs around 3,500 logistics experts in 22 locations. Today K+N Netherlands has made Nulogy an integral part of its contract packaging solution.

The Challenge:

Kuehne+Nagel had sites that relied on a paper-based system, which was limited by:

• Increased complexity versus digital solutions

• Responses to traceability requests that took hours, instead of minutes • Errors from time spent manually entering data

The Need

Increasing volumes and growing demands in the consumer, e-commerce and pharmaceutical markets impose ever higher requirements for effective and efficient contract packaging. In 2016, Kuehne+Nagel initially made the jump from a paper-based system to a digital solution when its first site adopted the Nulogy platform. Real-time information was a must-have in order to drive, deliver, adapt and improve workflows as well as to measure, report and raise the service quality according to the changing needs of its customers. A manual system was no longer capable of fulfilling these requirements for speed, complexity and accuracy.

The Results

Kuehne+Nagel made Nulogy part of its innovative one-stop-shop contract packaging solution — KN Packaging. The modular, cloud-based solution offered by Nulogy captures real-time order, stock and production information to optimise workflows, improve service quality, increase service flexibility and streamline the whole end-to-end contract packing supply chain operation.

BY ADOPTING NULOGY, KUEHNE+NAGEL WAS ABLE TO:

  • Eliminate data entry errors 
  • Significantly reduce time preparing orders and sharing inventory updates, tracking inventory and performing quality checks
  • 50% reduction in response times to RFQs
  • 50% acceleration in response times and data transparency levels for recall procedures

"Traceability is very important for our customers. In the past, we needed hours to provide traceability to our customers on expiry dates, for example. Now, we can respond in minutes." - EGON WALBOOMERS, NATIONAL CO-PACK MANAGER, KUEHNE+NAGEL

"Nulogy’s systems have switched us from a paper-based system to a full system-based process. We now have improved data accuracy and developed simplifi ed processes that we can analyze in real-time." -  MARCO ULTZEN, VEGHEL CO-PACK SITE MANAGER, KUEHNE+NAGEL

IWLEX Exhibitors say :

  • "We’ve never seen a show like it! Within six minutes of the inaugural IWLEX (Inside Warehouse & Logistics Exhibition) opening, we had our first inquiry in the bag. The two days in May at the Telford International Centre went on to be the most successful trade show we have attended in terms of deals created at the event itself and immediately afterward."
    Hi-Level Mezzanines Ltd
  • “We thoroughly enjoyed our time at IWLEX. It is a valuable exhibition for companies looking for the highest quality visitors. Visitor numbers may be lower than at other exhibitions, simply because the organisers have done a fantastic job in screening out time-wasters! Everyone who came onto our stand was a motivated buyer and we have had several high-quality leads since the exhibition. We recommend IWLEX to anyone looking for relevant leads within the world of warehousing and logistics. Thank you, Justin and Nairn!”
