The platform, says Kuehne & Nagel, allows realistic lead times on direct services to be compared with announced transit times from carriers. Data-driven insights unlock new possibilities for a more reliable and sustainable seafreight supply chain planning. There is full transparency of quality and sustainability for each operating service loop based on "Big Data" technology. Customers can leverage real-time service information to make best informed decisions.

 

Sea Explorer is now offering smart connections between more than 1,200 ports around the globe through an advanced pathfinding algorithm. More than 63,000 port pairs are connected either by 750 direct weekly services or by a multitude of transhipment options.

 

Otto Schacht, Member of the Managing Board of Kuehne + Nagel International AG, responsible for Seafreight, said: “This extension takes Sea Explorer to the next level and complements Kuehne + Nagel’s intelligent seafreight offering. It is the smart platform for all liner services in container shipping. With powerful features, like comparing realistic lead times for direct services and an intuitive navigation, customers will be able to unlock new opportunities for their day-to-day operations.

 

"For the first time a platform provides full visibility on CO2 emissions across carrier and individual services. Also in the light of the upcoming IMO 2020 regulations this will enable shippers to contribute towards a green economy and sustainable global maritime transportation. Kuehne + Nagel leverages big data technology capabilities and information from operational system to grant unique insights to sea transport options.”

 

Users can find, compare and visualise shipment options across carriers. Information on services are validated by more than 200M data sets per day from multiple sources, such as AIS and Kuehne + Nagel’s operational systems.
