The 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Third-Party Logistics Providers recognises Kuehne+Nagel’s visionary outlook and strength of operations.

Kuehne+Nagel is proud to be recognised as a leader in the 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Third-Party Logistics Providers (3PL). Gartner, Inc. is a research and advisory firm that evaluates logistics providers in an annual report. Providers are rated on two criteria: their ability to execute and their completeness of vision. 

In 2021, Kuehne+Nagel has ranked higher on both criteria and is considered the most visionary of the logistics providers. Gartner’s evaluation is based on their analysis and interviews with customers.

We are dedicated to using our specialised knowledge and deep industry know-how to better serving our verticals. From Pharma & Healthcare through to High-Tech, we support our customers to build supply chains that are competitive, sustainable and resilient to disruption. 

As the world endures a global pandemic, the importance of supply chains has been underlined. At Kuehne+Nagel, we use our market-leading access to capacity to enable the movement of life-saving medicines, PPE and vaccines across the world. As a global 3PL, we understand the responsibility to use our strong carrier relationships to secure capacity for our customers. 

Creating sustainable supply chains is a crucial step to addressing climate change. Gartner recognises Kuehne+Nagel’s bold environmental targets, particularly the public commitment to achieve carbon neutrality for our own emissions and those of our suppliers by 2030. This is a core part of our Net Zero Carbon  programme. Gartner acclaimed the diversity and breadth of our sustainability projects across all modes of transport and services.
