Kuehne+Nagel, Capgemini collaborate on supply chain orchestration service

Kuehne+Nagel and Capgemini have entered into a strategic agreement to create a supply chain orchestration service offering to provide end-to-end services across the supply chain network.

“This will enable businesses to remain agile in today’s disruptive global ecosystem by creating resilient, efficient, and sustainable supply chain operations,” Capgemini reported in a company statement.

The new strategic agreement is the first of its kind in the market and combines Kuehne+Nagel’s logistics management with Capgemini’s Intelligent Supply Chain Operations (ISCO) capabilities that delivers AI-enabled, cognitive, touchless operations, and data-driven decision making.

The service is especially targeted towards large corporations from the consumer, healthcare, and industrial sectors.

Gianfranco Sgro, Member of the Management Board of Kuehne+Nagel International AG, responsible for Contract and Integrated Logistics said: “Supply Chain Orchestration is the hot topic in our industry and is in higher demand than ever.

“Kuehne+Nagel and Capgemini share a common vision of innovation and client orientation. Together, we serve our customer with the most comprehensive set of supply chain services available in the market.

“A step that fully embraces Kuehne+Nagel’s strategic Roadmap 2026 and Vision 2030 of becoming the most trusted supply chain partner supporting a sustainable future,” Sgro added.

Oliver Pfeil, CEO of Capgemini’s Business Services and Member of Group Executive Committee at Capgemini said: “Supply chain disruptions continue to pose new risks for businesses, so they are increasingly looking for tech-backed, comprehensive solutions that will enable them to navigate these disruptions and stay ahead of the curve.

“At Capgemini, we are committed to partnering with clients in reimagining their supply chain management.

“This new joint solution with Kuehne+Nagel will help us to drive increased business value and build future-ready supply chain networks for our clients,” Pfeil added.

According to Capgemini, leveraging the combined capabilities of Kuehne+Nagel and Capgemini, organisations can benefit from seamless information flow and data exchange, transforming their supply chains by building greater resilience and managing risks, shortening order cycle times, improving logistics and optimising inventory.

Orchestrated supply chains, with integrated planning and execution, also help to decrease total logistics costs, reduce carbon emissions, and improve resilience to disruptions.

“Through this partnership, joint clients are supported in their decision-making processes for smarter anticipation and quicker response to risks or deviations, and better supply chain control,” Capgemini’s company statement reported.

Earlier this month, COP28 appointed Kuehne+Nagel as the official logistics partner at the global 2023 UN Climate Change Conference in Dubai.
