SMT is an online application where all suppliers across all Kuehne + Nagel Business Units are captured based on operational, legal and compliance criteria.
The immediate goal of the SMT product is:
- To provide a standardized solution allowing all business units to evaluate and qualify their supplier base in order to ensure both compliance and service quality.
- To reduce the quantity and increasing the quality of Kuehne + Nagel supplier base which results in increased operational efficiency, reduced costs and minimized risk.
In the hazardous materials, pharmaceutical and high-value goods sectors in particular, this database can be used to identify the most suitable suppliers and business partners on the basis of individual customer requirements, helping to optimise the customers’ supply chains.
