Kuehne + Nagel has launched KN Pledge, a new online solution for full container load shipments which offers guaranteed lead time, a 100% money-back guarantee, extended cargo liability, instant pricing and carbon footprint offset, all integrated in one service offering.
According to Kuehne + Nagel, KN Pledge provides peace of mind for customers and covers all delivery combinations from port-to-port to door-to-door. In the event of an unavoidable delay, customers will not have to pay the freight charges. The service also contains an extended cargo liability covering a range of causes or damage with up to US$100,000 per container, including fire, explosion, act of God and act of war.
“We are proud to be the first in sea freight logistics to provide this innovative and comprehensive pledge to our customers,” said Otto Schacht, member of the managing board at Kuehne + Nagel International AG responsible for sea freight. “What is special about this Kuehne + Nagel online service solution is that it enables our customers to receive offers for FCL in addition to LCL shipments within seconds – from virtually any point in the world to any other point with an additional guaranteed lead time. Furthermore, we offset the CO2 footprint for this full container shipment.”
KN Pledge adds to Kuehne + Nagel’s existing online quote, booking and tracking capabilities.
