With the newly launched full container shipment solution KN Pledge, Kuehne + Nagel is the first logistics service provider to offer an online solution for Full Container Load (FCL) shipments with guaranteed lead time, 100 per cent money back guarantee, extended cargo liability, instant pricing, and carbon footprint offset all integrated in one service offering.
Even in today’s modern sea freight transportation, delays may occur for many reasons. Terminal, rail and road congestion, adverse weather conditions and delayed transit connections, for example, remain a regular cause of disruptions in the supply chain. With KN Pledge, Kuehne + Nagel provides peace of mind for the customer’s supply chain with a guaranteed lead time for full container transportation that covers all delivery combinations from port-to-port to door-to-door. In the event that a delay becomes unavoidable, customers who have booked KN Pledge will not pay the freight charges.
The service promise also contains an extended cargo liability covering a wide range of causes or damage with up to US$100,000 per container. Causes covered include amongst others fire, explosion, act of God and act of war.
