To help stakeholders in managing business continuity during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, logistics IT solutions provider Kale Logistics Solutions (Kale) has rolled out a new electronic-delivery order (e-DO) solution for shipping lines and freight forwarders that will help with the processing and documentation of cargo.
The electronic-delivery order (e-DO) solution which is part of Kale’s recently introduced package of e-Services solutions for the logistics industry is aimed at removing the burden of administrative tasks and facilitate the creation and filing of DOs in maritime trade that is traditionally burdened with a lot of paperwork and manual interventions.
This state-of-the-art digital service has the capability to issue Master and House Delivery Order for multiple shipping lines. Also, it can facilitate re-validation of soon to expire Delivery Order by auto-calculating the charges to be paid.
Kale is offering a free trial of its e-DO service in order to support shipping lines and freight forwarders to continue with their business operations during these trying times. Besides, no upfront investment is required to begin using this service.
“We stand by the industry during these tough times and would like to offer these business continuity services to the shipping lines and freight forwarders. At times like these, there is limited cash flow in the market as well as a demand slump. Therefore, we are offering a completely cloud-hosted, outcome-based service model with zero upfront investment. These cloud-enabled services reduce the risk of COVID-19 spread with paper touch points. We are experiencing a tremendous demand for e-DO services which are so pertinent in these pandemic times,” Kale Logistics Solutions Director Vineet Malhotra said.
Right from enabling remote working to automated handling and ensuring data accuracy e-DO offers robust solutions for business continuity despite the ongoing crisis.
Most notably, e-DO services are specifically built to ensure digital security compliance. Therefore, they are secured from phishing attacks, and online payments are done through safe payment gateways.
