日本通運 新経営計画の策定

策定の経緯
 2009年に策定した10年間の長期ビジョンの終わりにあたり、将来の日通グループのありたい姿として、2037年に迎える創立100周年に向けた新たな長期ビジョンを描くことを出発点としました。
 まず、これまでの長期ビジョンの対象期間における3つの経営計画を振り返り、達成できたことと継続する課題を整理するとともに、外部環境分析を行って、捉えるべき機会と対処すべきリスクを認識しました。それらを踏まえ、将来のありたい姿を「グローバル市場で存在感を持つロジスティクスカンパニー」と定め、あらゆるステークホルダーの期待に応えつつ、その実現を目指すことを新たな長期ビジョンとしました。
 新たな長期ビジョンの第一歩となる新経営計画は、これまでの取組みにより効果が出始め、さらに加速させて継続的に取り組むべき施策と、将来に向けて持続的に成長するために必要な施策をバックキャストで考え、これらの組み合わせによって策定したものです。様々な変革に挑戦し、完遂するために、計画期間を5年間としました。

Panalpina joins Cargo sous terrain initiative aimed at revolutionizing logistics

Imagine a futuristic world where cargo moves through an underground network of tunnels ? automatically, quietly and intelligently enabling just-in-time deliveries. Panalpina is pleased to join Cargo sous terrain (CST), the Swiss-led consortium set to transform logistics and propel the industry into digitalization. As a shareholder, Panalpina will seek representation on the CST supervisory board and adopt a leading role in developing the CST logistics system and sharing expert know-how.

CST envisions an automated, digitally controlled comprehensive logistics system in Switzerland by 2045, aimed at promoting economic competitiveness and improving quality of life. CST will ensure the safe, secure and punctual delivery of containers, pallets and parcels. At its backbone is an underground system of transport tunnels linking the business centers north of the Alps with environmentally friendly distribution in cities and industrial areas.

The first section of the tunnel system is expected to be ready in 2030 and will connect the logistics hub Härkingen-Niederbipp (near the capital Bern) with Zurich. When completed, the fully automated network will extend from Geneva to St. Gallen and from Basel to Luzern, with an additional branch from Bern to Thun. The full network will have 500 km of tunnels, serving more than 80 hubs for the loading and unloading of industrial and commercial goods for about 10 million people. With 1 million square meters of surface underground, CST will be the largest warehouse in Switzerland.

“CST is the most ambitious and advanced logistics project for Switzerland in the next decades and could potentially serve as a role model for the rest of the world,” says Stefan Karlen, CEO of Panalpina. “Our goal is to be at the forefront, to learn and help shape the future infrastructure for freight forwarding and logistics.”

CST will reduce the number of trucks on existing roads, in particular at traffic bottlenecks, by 40 percent. Freight traffic in cities will be reduced by up to 30 percent, thanks to the systematic and efficient delivery by electric vehicles that meet urban requirements. The system will run entirely on renewable energy. With end-to-end digitalization, the system will operate in an extremely flexible environment, with dynamic deliveries in small units and guaranteed arrival times for goods.

“Panalpina aims to play an active and decisive role for Cargo sous terrain in co-designing highly automated operational systems to connect metropolitan areas and optimize intra-city logistics,” adds Luca Graf, Panalpina’s head of Digital Innovation. “We see the possibility to apply disruptive technologies such as predictive logistics and advanced recycling to achieve this vision.” As a shareholder, Panalpina will seek representation on the CST supervisory board.

The building permit and planning phase of CST will start with the passing of the CST law, expected in late 2020. As a first step, the Swiss Federal Council will open consultation on the new legislation that will allow CST to become reality.



Kuehne + Nagel increases annual results

Dr. Detlef Trefzger, CEO of Kuehne + Nagel International AG, on the Group's annual result: “2018 was another successful year for Kuehne + Nagel. Despite the market weakening at the end of the year, we succeeded in increasing our net turnover, gross profit and EBIT once again. The consistent implementation of our business strategy was decisive for this success. By introducing additional digital platforms, with new highly specialised solutions and targeted acquisitions, we reached important milestones last year and will continue to pursue our journey. Even though the growth momentum of the global economy slowed down at the end of 2018, we confirm our goals for the year ahead. In 2019, we aim at growing twice as fast as the market and improving our results further, complemented with selected acquisitions to our portfolio.”


Development of business units
Seafreight
With a 7.7 percent growth in volume, Kuehne + Nagel gained again market share in seafreight and strengthened its position as the global market leader. The company handled 4.7 million standard containers (TEU) last year, representing an increase of around 335,000 TEU. Significant new business was won with KN ESP, a new digital supplier management system for key accounts introduced in early 2018. The company also launched another new digital platform ? Sea Explorer ? to provide customers with detailed comparisons for carrier services. Strong growth was recorded in the Asia-Europe trade and in US imports, particularly from Asia. In addition, intra-Asian trade lanes grew again last year. With three alliances and seven carriers in the market, the supply of capacity impacted margins which varied substantially, depending on region, trade lane and product. While the margins in European exports were under considerable pressure, those in Asia-Europe trade were growing. In this context, Kuehne + Nagel’s seafreight business achieved a solid EBIT that grew by 1.0 percent compared to the previous year. The conversion rate (EBIT-to-gross-profit ratio) was maintained at an industry-leading high level of 28.2 percent.

Airfreight
Airfreight continued its outstanding development in 2018. Kuehne + Nagel increased its tonnage by 11.0 percent to 1.7 million tons, thereby achieving significantly higher growth than the overall market. Industry-specific solutions for the pharma & healthcare and aviation industries played an important role in this growth. Kuehne + Nagel pursues an active M&A strategy and acquired Quick International Courier, a company in a high growth market that is one of the global leaders in time-critical transport and logistics solutions. Due to this strong growth in volume, consistent cost control and further productivity gains, EBIT grew by 13.4 percent in airfreight. At 29.5 percent, the conversion rate was once again at a high level for the industry.

Overland
Kuehne + Nagel’s excellent results in overland continued in 2018, with the company achieving significant increases in net turnover, gross profit and EBIT. Net turnover grew by 13.1 percent and gross profit by 14.3 percent. EBIT improved by 55.1 percent compared with the previous year. Business in European groupage and less-than-truckload shipments were the primary growth drivers, as well as intermodal shipments and transport management for major customers in North America. Industry-specific solutions for customers from the pharma & healthcare industry played a key role in this success. Kuehne + Nagel continues to expand on its digital competence and aims at systematically increasing the number of automated shipments to further raise efficiency.

Contract Logistics
In contract logistics, Kuehne + Nagel increased net turnover by 9.0 percent and gross profit by 8.8 percent. The company grew significantly in the USA and Asia. Growth rates of more than 40 percent were achieved in e-commerce fulfilment. The EBIT remained below last year’s figure, down by 14.3 percent, due to the review of the project portfolio and investments for a new global warehouse management system, used for the operational control of the Group’s worldwide fulfilment centers. Two acquisitions strengthened the company’s position as a leading international logistics provider for China’s automotive industry and expanded its e-commerce offering in Indonesia. Kuehne + Nagel managed 11.6 million square metres of warehouse and logistics space for its customers.

Net Turnover
The Kuehne + Nagel Group achieved a net turnover of CHF 20,774 million in 2018, an increase of 11.7 percent compared to the previous year. This increase comes from the growth in volume in all business units. Net turnover increased by 17.0 percent in the Americas (North, Central and South America), by 13.5 percent in Asia-Pacific and by 9.3 percent in EMEA (Europe, Near/Middle East, Central Asia and Africa).

Gross Profit
Gross profit, the better performance indicator for a logistics company than turnover, was at CHF 7,709 million, 9.8 percent higher than in the previous year. Gross profit improved by 14.1 percent in Asia-Pacific, by 13.6 percent in the Americas and by 8.1 per cent in EMEA.

EBITDA
Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, amortisation and impairment of property, plant and equipment, goodwill and other intangible assets (EBITDA) increased by 5.1 percent to CHF 1,209 million compared to the previous year. EMEA generated the largest EBITDA contribution with CHF 693 million (57.3 percent), followed by the Americas with CHF 263 million (21.8 percent) and Asia-Pacific with CHF 253 million (20.9 percent).

EBIT
In 2018, earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) improved by 5.3 percent to CHF 987 million. The Group’s EBIT margin was at 4.8 percent. EMEA contributed CHF 545 million (55.2 percent) to the Group's EBIT, followed by Asia-Pacific with a contribution of CHF 232 million (23.5 percent) and the Americas with CHF 210 million (21.3 percent).

Dividend
The Board of Directors will propose a dividend per share of CHF 6.00 (previous year: CHF 5.75) to the Annual General Meeting on May 7, 2019.


Dr. Jörg Wolle, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Kuehne + Nagel International AG, says: “The Kuehne + Nagel Group’s annual result demonstrates once again the company’s performance. In 2018, we expanded our position as a globally leading logistics provider and further improved our result. This confirms the strategic focus of the Kuehne + Nagel Group. In this context, the Board of Directors is looking with confidence to the 2019 financial year and ahead. In the medium and long term, the fundamental, all-encompassing transformation processes taking place in all areas of the global economy will continue to represent significant opportunities for Kuehne + Nagel going forward.”

“In the past two years, we have invested significant time and resources in developing different elements of the portal to establish the best digital experience for our customers. In particular, the quoting and shipment-visibility capabilities of the new portal are hitting the core of today’s demands,” comments Ralf Morawietz, CIO at Panalpina.

“Digitalization is the number one trend in logistics and our new customer portal is an industry game changer. Customers, partners and suppliers will increasingly expect to quote, buy, sell and deliver online using dedicated platforms and my priority is that Panalpina offers our customers an engaging, seamless digital experience,” says Stefan Karlen, Panalpina’s CEO.

“There is still significant paperwork coupled with inefficient processes in the industry,” Karlen adds. “With our customer portal, we are one step closer to creating a truly digital end-to-end enterprise which will enable us to drive down costs, shorten response time and offer multiple communication channels to our customers and trading partners.”
