Kuehne + Nagel expands Sea Explorer


Kuehne + Nagel will expand its digital sea freight platform Sea Explorer into a smart gateway for all liner services in container shipping. Kuehne + Nagel’s Sea Explorer provides a digitally enabled service insight to the sea freight service network.

Sea Explorer is now offering smart connections between more than 1,200 ports around the globe through an advanced pathfinding algorithm. More than 63,000 port pairs are connected either by 750 direct weekly services or by a multitude of transhipment options. The platform shows realistic lead times, has full transparency and allows customers to see real-time service information. Users can find, compare and visualise shipment options across carriers. Information on services are validated by more than 200m data sets per day from multiple sources, such as AIS (Automated Identification System) and Kuehne + Nagel’s operational systems.

Otto Schacht, Member of the Managing Board of Kuehne + Nagel International AG, responsible for Sea freight, said, “This extension takes Sea Explorer to the next level and complements Kuehne + Nagel’s intelligent sea freight offering. It is the smart platform for all liner services in container shipping. With powerful features, like comparing realistic lead times for direct services and an intuitive navigation, customers will be able to unlock new opportunities for their day-to-day operations. For the first time a platform provides full visibility on CO2 emissions across carrier and individual services”.
