Freight forwarder cargo-partner has commenced the rollout of the CargoWise platform, owned by WiseTech Global, across its global netowork.
CargoWise will enable cargo-partner’s logistics providers to carry out transactions for freight forwarding, customs clearance, warehousing, shipping, tracking, land transport, e-commerce and cross-border compliance, using a single platform.
The sotware is being rolled out in stages across Asia, Oceania, Europe and the US and is expected to be completed by March 2023.
Stefan Krauter, chief executive of cargo-partner, commented: “CargoWise will be a revolutionary step in our next stage of growth. The ability to manage our global freight forwarding operations from a single platform that provides real-time visibility across our supply chain will enable cargo-partner to increase operational efficiency and focus on driving customer experience. We also expect to significantly improve cost efficiencies and productivity across our teams.
“The implementation of CargoWise is in line with our high-tech approach and commitment to providing end-to-end solutions that help us stay ahead of our competitors.
“We see our future role in the digitalisation of the global supply chain not in developing own standard software, but in developing individual client solutions, deep integration and ultimately in building clusters of artificial intelligence together with our customers. Of course many of these clusters will be connected and communicating with each other.”
WiseTech Global founder and chief executive Richard White, added: “As we continue to welcome more leading logistics service providers to adopt our CargoWise platform for full global rollouts, we move one step closer to delivering on our vision to be the operating system for global logistics.
“The deep functionality available within CargoWise will ensure cargo-partner has a strong foundation for future business growth.”
