Kuehne+Nagel and X’s Project Chorus partner in an effort to enhance global supply chain visibility


Kuehne+Nagel and Chorus, a moonshot project at X, Alphabet’s Moonshot Factory, partner to offer select Kuehne+Nagel Road Logistics customers real-time solutions and granular, prescriptive insights into the health and state of their global supply chain and logistics operations.

Recent challenges in the global supply chain have illustrated the extent to which lack of real-time intelligence leads to unsustainable levels of wastage, inefficiencies, and revenue loss. Chorus is developing new sensor and orchestration technology that aims to accurately track where physical goods are located, where they are needed, what state they are in, and how they are used. The technology will be integrated into Kuehne+Nagel’s digital road service offering, eTrucknow, to provide its Road Logistics customers solutions, such as the ability to track the real-time location and condition of goods, with the goal of providing enhanced visibility.

Stefan Paul, Member of the Management Board of Kuehne+Nagel International AG, responsible for Road Logistics and Sales, says: “We are focused on developing solutions for some of the toughest global supply chain problems. Our partnership with Chorus will enhance our capabilities to build innovative solutions, further enriching eTrucknow offering. By combining visibility with intelligence we aim to provide our customers more accurate, actionable and data-driven insights into the overall health of their supply chain down to carton level.”
