Kuehne+Nagel’s (K+N) board of directors has approved a new direct reporting system for country organisations.

This change aims to help the company improve efficiency and achieve more profitable growth.

By simplifying responsibilities, the new structure is expected to enable K+N’s business and functional units to adapt their strategy in line with rapidly changing market developments and implement business decisions more quickly. It will also ensure greater global consistency as well as customer proximity, said K+N.

The historically-evolved regional structure will be discontinued and responsibilities integrated into K+N’s Group functions, as appropriate. The cluster and national managers will report directly into the management board of K+N, added the company.

Joerg Wolle, chairman of K+N, commented: “With the discontinuation of the regional management levels, the Kuehne+Nagel Group is streamlining its organisational structure and creating the conditions for further efficiency gains, to be able to act even faster and more flexibly in an increasingly dynamic global trade environment.”
