  • Vendor connectivity solutions

Supply chain visibility

Our own cutting-edge visibility solution is based on extensive market research, customer insights and logistics management experience. It is a single, web-based access point to end-to-end supply chain information and the modular format makes it easy to tailor to your specific requirements. This solution enables order management, inventory management, event management, reporting/business intelligence and integration of data from multiple partners in the supply chain.

Advanced back-end systems

Our documentation system is the backbone of our operations. Our platform was first launched in 2008 and has been continuously developed and expanded ever since. It supports the entire end-to-end processes, exception management, purchase order upload and EDI, integrating with other back-end systems and supply chains for real-time visibility and strong process support.

Vendor connectivity solutions/e-booking and documentation

Our web-based e-tool provides booking, documentation and tracking support for your vendors and allows them to make bookings online, enquire about details on bookings, view purchase orders, track the status of bookings and shipments, prepare draft HBL’s & FCRs (forwarder’s cargo receipt), submit container load results to FOL, and create commercial invoices and packing lists in customised formats. All of this improves the overall data quality and enhances the speed of the process for you and your vendors.

Electronic data interchange (EDI) and bar coding capabilities

We support standard and customised EDI solutions to transfer information electronically at numerous points during the shipment process. We are able to support barcode scanning, printing and labelling.
