KN LCL – our global solution for part loads boosts the efficiency of your supply chain

The permanent change in customer requirements and the increasing number of logistics networks has significantly altered the shipment structures. This results in shorter product life cycles and fragmented order quantities of customers. As a consequence, retailers try to keep their stocks as low as possible.

Thanks to our independent network we set standards in terms of handling quality, lead-times and provision of tracking information. Any customer who does not have either the time or the quantities can use KN LCL. With KN LCL client can  directly ship their goods as part loads. This enables our customers to reduce inventory levels through smaller order sizes and to source from different suppliers (smaller batches).
