Security is managed within Kuehne + Nagel under the QSHE organization with a dedicated Corporate Security Manager and the support of our Quality Expert Security Team (QUEST).

The aspects of Security are based on three pillars:

  • Regulatory affairs and international security initiatives
  • Supply chain security
  • IT security

Kuehne + Nagel’s security management system was designed to achieve full compliance with all applicable regulatory and industry security standards.

Kuehne + Nagel is member of voluntary government-business initiatives in many countries, such as Authorized Economic Operator (AEO), Customs-Trade Partnership against Terrorism (C-TPAT) and Business Alliance for Secure Commerce (BASC) to strengthen and assist end-to-end security of international supply chains and to foster legitimate trade of our clients by means of the benefits granted to program members by competent national customs authorities.

Furthermore, in line with special customer requirements, 13 logistics centres have been certified in accordance with TAPA (Transported Asset Protection Association) security criteria.

As a leading global logistics provider it is our endeavour to provide our customers with a state-of-the-art security management system throughout the whole supply chain to mitigate the potential risk of thefts or acts of unlawful interference as far as possible. We continuously strive to create a stable and predictable environment in which our customers may pursue their business without disruption or harm and without fear of disturbance to the freight entrusted to Kuehne + Nagel.
