Founded 1890 | Global | Non-Asset Based

The Swiss company founded by August Kuehne and Friedrich Nagel turns 125 this year, and its successors celebrated by bringing a couple of shipping containers to the city where it all began in 1890—which turns out to be the German city of Bremen—and sending them on a little tour … one east, the other west. Cool, right? Except the party’s over. Yep. Been done since before summer. We missed it. Everybody’s back at work … which is probably how a company gets to be 125 years old.
