Lead Time Guaranteed for all delivery combinations
Even in today’s modern sea freight transportation, delays may occur for many reasons: Terminal, rail and road congestion, ever more frequent adverse weather conditions, truck driver shortages, cancelled sailings and delayed transit connections, for example, remain a regular cause of disruptions in the supply chain. Vessel schedule reliability is low with more that 30% of the vessels arriving late. This can lead to production delays, unbalanced inventory levels, increased operating costs or dissatisfied customers.
Managing and shipping a container from one location to another can still be a challenge. But with KN Pledge, you do not have to worry about the arrival of your shipment. KUEHNE + NAGEL guarantees a lead time covering all delivery combinations from port-to-port to door-to-door.
