“Etihad Cargo’s integration with Kuehne+Nagel represents another milestone in the carrier’s commitment to digital innovation and operational excellence,” said Stanislas Brun, Vice President Cargo at Etihad Cargo.

By integrating with Etihad Cargo, Kuehne+Nagel can enhance their speed to market and operational efficiency, reducing the time required for bookings and improving overall service levels.

This new integration between Etihad Cargo and Kuehne+Nagel unites the two companies in a powerful way, ensuring the logistics provider can fully leverage Etihad Cargo’s cargo capabilities.
