Global logistics company to deploy Honeywell connected technology to enhance worker productivity, accuracy and efficiency in its global distribution centers

Honeywell has announced a strategic alliance with Kuehne + Nagel, one of the world’s leading logistics providers, to become a technology partner supporting Kuehne + Nagel’s global innovation initiatives for connected distribution centers.

The alliance is focused on global supply chain productivity, accuracy and efficiency improvements.

“Our goal is to support Kuehne + Nagel in realizing their global digital transformation strategy,” said Taylor Smith, president of Honeywell’s Workflow Solutions business. “We will partner on new technology solutions designed to help warehouse workers and shippers streamline supply chain operations, gain detailed information about the condition of their shipments and comply with industry regulations.”

Kuehne + Nagel will deploy Honeywell’s industry-leading supply chain technology solutions globally at its warehouses, including voice-directed solutions, cloud-based software and warehouse automation solutions. The two companies also agreed to a strategic alliance to jointly develop and deploy solutions for Kuehne + Nagel’s global customer base.

“In a rapidly changing market, we are using new technologies and digitalization to continuously improve productivity. We chose to partner with Honeywell because we share a common understanding of the transformation of the supply chain,” said Gianfranco Sgro, Member of the Managing Board of Kuehne + Nagel International AG, responsible for contract logistics. “The cooperation with Honeywell is a milestone in accelerating our strategic move to a technology-enabled and data-driven value chain provider.”

The two companies recently partnered to develop the Connected Freight solution, which combines sensors and a cloud-based platform to provide shippers with real-time information about the location and condition of critical freight in transit. The solution, which brings the Internet of Things to freight monitoring, provides users with alerts based on temperature, humidity, pressure intrusion detection, shock and tilt at the pallet or parcel level.
