Product availability, one key to guest satisfaction
We know the importance of keeping luxury toiletries, room accessories and spa products available for your guests.
Kuehne + Nagel’s global reach and extensive experience with inventory management means we’re able to stay on top of the inbound services to the manufacturing site, as well as managing the complex storage, handling and distribution operations needed to smoothly maintain your stock levels.
We work closely with hotel suppliers to ensure they clearly understand and can fulfil the requirements of your business. This includes physical flow of goods, administrative processes and communication standards.
Order Management (OMS)
OMS supports product availability through production planning to optimise inventory levels, increase stock turns and reduce lead times. OMS also helps to increase sales by reducing the risk of stock-outs and markdowns through improved delivery scheduling and support for diverse distribution options.
Reduce freight costs and inefficiency by consolidating goods from multiple suppliers into one convenient shipment.
Kuehne + Nagel offers a wide range of services to move your shipments through customs quickly and efficiently. Skilled customs professionals at 800+ offices can access documents while goods are in transit, allowing pre-clearance (in some markets) or rapid completion of customs documentation prior to arrival.
Global network of warehouses to serve as your distribution hub for hotel chains in markets worldwide. If required, we offer temperature-controlled facilities, including chilled and ambient.
Value Added Services
Variety of value-added services, including re-packing, labelling, kitting, and room kit building, for swift sales and deployment of goods to hotel rooms.
We use network optimisation tools to design and validate your optimal replenishment arrangements including warehouse and transportation network.
