Is it possible to get insurance coverage for my high-value cargo?
In order to get coverage for high-value cargo, you need to book carriers who have high-liability coverage. However, if you still need a higher level of coverage, you may need to work with a cargo insurance company. Kuehne+Nagel offers increased levels of coverage through its insurance company Nacora.
My cross border, temp-controlled shipments are very complex. How do I simplify this process?
If you want to simplify the cross-border process, partner with a 3PL who will:
- handle customs brokerage, duties, inspections, and all other cross-border requirements
- serve customer needs from strategic border office and warehouse locations
- provide ambient temperature shipping options for general perishables
How do I increase visibility over my temperature-controlled shipments?
In order to enhance the visibility of your temperature-controlled shipments, you should begin using a TMS, such as Kuehne+Nagel’s myKN. With a TMS, you will be able to track your shipments in real time, and monitor status and handoffs at the border.
In addition, if you partner with a 3PL to manage your reefer shipments, they will be able to monitor your shipments while in-transit and around the clock.
