Enabling smarter logistics - customised online shop systems for freight forwarders and shipping companies
Summary:
German SME offers an online logistics shop system for sales of sea, land and air freight to forwarding companies that want to become competitive in the digital landscape. It digitises all core processes of logistics sales and can be integrated into the web presence of the forwarding company, customised to specific needs and design and integrated with back-office ICT-systems. Commercial agreements with technical assistance are offered for customised development, implementation and hosting.
Description:
The logistics industry is in a state of flux with the arrival of digital disruption. Industry conglomerates and digital entrants are driving the digital movement, leaving the majority of the market behind and under pressure. In order to support especially small and medium-sized logistics companies facing these challenges, a German startup developed a solution taking the same technological advancement that industry conglomerates and digital disruptors are bringing, converted it to a white-label software-as-a-service product.

With a modern and simple-to-use customer-facing system the software digitises the core processes of logistics sales, making it possible to automate the freight booking process, instantly calculate all-in spot and client-specific rates, and search through thousands of routings and schedules to identify and display the most relevant possibilities available. This can be done for all modes of transport - whether by land, air, sea or a combination. With that come numerous advantages such as shipper dashboards, document depositaries, shipment replication, statistics and much more, increasing value for both the user and the logistics provider.

Whereas many startups try to disrupt the market by developing online platforms that promise to do logistics smarter, better and cheaper than the existing forwarding companies, this startup acknowledges that logistics is a very expert-driven industry that relies heavily on strong networks and agile fixes. Nevertheless forwarding companies need to be competitive on the virtual component and only those companies that seize the possibilities of the internet early enough will have build the competency to generate sales and modernise as the technology matures and the majority of the market moves online.

The philosophy of the web booking and quoting tool is to be customised to its owner. Not just the brand but functionality and process is often unique to the individual logistics provider. The cloud solution can be integrated into the web presence of forwarding and shipping companies, customised to their specific needs and corporate design and integrated with their back-office ICT-systems. Software solutions for a public online shop or for a closed client shop are offered with the following features:
