Kuehne+Nagel and Capgemini have announced that they have entered a strategic partnership to enable businesses to remain agile in today’s disruptive global ecosystem.

They plan to create a supply chain orchestration service offering to provide end-to-end services across the supply chain network. This will combine Kuehne+Nagel’s logistics management and execution expertise with Capgemini’s Intelligent Supply Chain Operation (ISCO) capabilities. The service is especially targeted towards consumer, healthcare and industrial sector corporations.

Organizations can benefit from the enhancement of their supply chains due to the greater resilience and managing risks, shortened order cycle times, improved logistics and optimized inventory. Orchestrated supply chains with integrated planning and execution will also help decrease customers’ total logistics costs, reduce carbon emissions and improve resilience to disruptions.

Gianfranco Sgro, member of the management board of Kuehne+Nagel International AG, said: “Supply Chain Orchestration is the hot topic in our industry and is in higher demand than ever. Kuehne+Nagel and Capgemini share a common vision of innovation and client orientation. Together, we serve our customers with the most comprehensive set of supply chain services available in the market. A step that fully embraces Kuehne+Nagel’s strategic Roadmap 2026 and Vision 2030 of becoming the most trusted supply chain partner supporting a sustainable future.”

Oliver Pfeil, CEO of Capgemini’s business services and member of group executive committee at Capgemini, said: “Supply chain disruptions continue to pose new risks for businesses, so they are increasingly looking for tech-backed, comprehensive solutions that will enable them to navigate these disruptions and stay ahead of the curve.

“At Capgemini, we are committed to partnering with clients in reimagining their supply chain management. This new joint solution with Kuehne+Nagel will help us to drive increased business value and build future-ready supply chain networks for our clients.”

Other recent Capgemini partnerships include an extension of its collaboration with Microsoft for sustainable generative AI capabilities and improving customer experiences with Salesforce, announced earlier this month.
