Siemens is continuing and expanding its relationship with Kuehne & Nagel, naming it to provide all logistics services for the electronics giant's operations in Europe and the United States. The two have already collaborated for more than 10 years. Items such as spare parts for medical equipment, turbines, electric power distribution units and high-end electronics are among the products Kuehne & Nagel has handled for Siemens.
Under the extended agreement, Kuehne + Nagel has been endorsed for air and sea brokerage and inland services.
"We have again chosen Kuehne & Nagel as the company has a proven track record in operational excellence, the global footprint we require, a strong commitment to IT initiatives, and a finely tuned client and key account management set-up customized to our requirements," says Mike Brewer, Siemens Shared Services, and head of the Siemens North American Traffic Council. "This combination allows us to continually evolve and deepen our partnership and smoothly adapt it to our logistics requirements."
Kuehne & Nagel provides Siemens with customized monitoring and reporting services, including full transparency of freight costs, delivery times and customs clearance information.
