Kuehne+Nagel and SATS join forces to drive value chain improvements

Kuehne+Nagel and SATS signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to enter into a strategic collaboration to drive value chain improvements and sustainability efforts within the air logistics industry.

In particular, the two companies have initially collaborated on several successful Proofs of Concept to optimise ground handling for e-commerce shipments, air charter hub and spoke operations, as well as to improve shipment visibility and cargo processing speeds for time-critical shipments.

Earlier, SATS acquired Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) in April 2023, the world’s largest air cargo logistics provider.

The goal of the two companies is to co-develop and implement solutions for customers throughout Asia, Europe and North America.

Additionally, the first Proofs of Concept have produced encouraging results, demonstrating time savings and reducing touchpoints for Kuehne+Nagel shipments at SATS’ airside facilities.

Yngve Ruud, member of the Management Board of Kuehne+Nagel responsible for Air Logistics, commented, "Collaboration is at the heart of what we do at Kuehne+Nagel and we are very excited to partner with SATS. By leveraging our combined expertise and global footprints we improve our service offering and continue to create value for customers around the world."
