Kuehne + Nagel launches new global e-fulfilment centre WMS


Kuehne + Nagel has launched a new global warehouse management system (WMS) designed for omni-channel fulfilment. Developed by JDA Warehouse Management, the new digital platform is called KN SwiftLOG.

KN SwiftLOG will become the global standard for Kuehne + Nagel, upgrading more than 400 fulfilment centres across the world.

Gianfranco Sgro, member of the Managing Board of Kuehne + Nagel International AG, responsible for Contract Logistics, says: “Consumer and business requirements are rapidly changing. Anticipating these trends we constantly adapt the physical and logical organisation of our fulfilment centres and enhance our management warehouse systems. New key variables are process digitalisation, change in order profile, opportunistic inventory allocation and speed. Our customers will benefit from a state-of-the-art platform in the market, which is currently the most important single investment in contract logistics at Kuehne + Nagel.”

The first implementation was successfully realised in China with an omni-channel distribution centre for a major fashion brand.
