Kuehne + Nagel launches online platform for intra-Asian shippers

Kuehne + Nagel have launched a new online logistics platform to meet the needs of intra-Asia shippers.

The new platform eShipAsia connects shippers to 20 countries and allows them to compare sailing schedules and rates between 2,220 port pairs, 7,500 service loops and 54 different carriers.

Instant quotations are provided with full transparency on surcharges and these can either be saved or booked immediately by customers.

“As one of the largest trades in the world, the Intra-Asia trade is a highly dynamic and fragmented market, characterised by transactional business models. This makes it challenging and time-consuming for shippers to find and procure the best transport options,” said Casper Ellerbaek, senior vice president for Kuehne + Nagel Asia Pacific, Seafreight.

The system also offers advanced online track and trace systems.

Jens Drewes, President for Kuehne + Nagel Asia Pacific, said, “Users from our pilot testing reaffirmed that eShipAsia enables them to make better and faster decisions as the platform optimises their Intra-Asia shipments based on the route, transit time and costs.

The platform is available in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Japan, Vietnam, Indonesia, South Korea and Greater China and in local languages.
