Hellmann Worldwide Logistics has announced the rollout of CargoWise, the integrated single-platform logistics solution of WiseTech Global as its new Transport Management (TMS) System for all air and sea freight operations.
Following the completion of a pilot phase, the company said it will implement CargoWise across 42 countries including the US, Australia, Germany, the UK, India, South Korea, South Africa and Hong Kong.
The Germany-based forwarder opted for CargoWise in a bid to enhance operational processes within its global air and sea freight operations by standardising systems and databases and enabling more efficient resource usage across the entire supply chain.
In addition, the integration of CargoWise with Hellmann’s customer facing solutions would further optimise customer experience by allowing for an automated and transparent information exchange with clients around the globe.
“Transcending the challenges in global logistics sustainably and further developing the service quality for our customers, requires a global integrated platform that can provide end-to-end logistics execution. Essential to our decision was uncompromising delivery of real-time and accurate data visibility, a high degree of automation and a strong compliance and risk mitigation. Another argument in favor of CargoWise was the ability to integrate with existing systems,” Hellmann Worldwide Logistics Chief Executive Officer Reiner Heiken said.
“We are passionate about providing our people with a stimulating and empowering working environment. With the global rollout of CargoWise, we will enable our staff to deliver their full potential and add further value to our customers,” Heiken added.
Licensed across around 150 countries, CargoWise enables logistics service providers to execute highly complex transactions in areas such as freight forwarding, customs clearance, warehousing, shipping, tracking, land transport, e-commerce, and cross-border compliance, allowing them to manage their operations on one database across multiple users, functions, countries, languages, and currencies.
“We are pleased that Hellmann Worldwide Logistics has chosen CargoWise as their freight forwarding solution for their air and sea freight operations globally,” WiseTech Global Chief Executive Officer and Founder Richard White said
“CargoWise will provide Hellmann with a highly scalable platform that will not only improve compliance, safety and visibility, but also enable invaluable improvements to productivity across their global supply chain ecosystem,” White added.
