With the ever increasing amount of precise data available for hadron production processes,
the perturbative QCD framework is being extended to explore effects and corrections that go beyond the next-to-leading order accuracy. Fixed order calculations at next-to-next-to-leading order accuracy are required for a precise and reliable comparison to experimental results, and, consequently, the analyses of the non-perturbative structure of hadrons has to match this level of accuracy. Moreover, potentially important effects specific to some kinematical regions, such as the small-z and large-z regions in semi-inclusive electron-positron annihilation, can be investigated through the means of all-order resummation techniques. In this talk we present a first analysis of parton-to-pion fragmentation functions at next-to-next-to-leading order accuracy based on single-inclusive pion production in electron-positron annihilation. All-order resummations of large logarithmic contributions at small-z are included and their numerical impact is investigated.
