Bolloré clicks with CargoWise for new digital solution
24 / 04 / 2019
Logistics firm Bolloré Logistics will continue its digital drive by rolling out a new platform across its global network.
The company today announced that it had signed up to use WiseTech Global’s CargoWise One digital platform across the whole of its business, with the roll out starting in May.
The system will be used for transactions in freight forwarding, customs clearance, warehousing, shipping, tracking, land transport, e-commerce, and cross-border compliance.
Bolloré said that this would allow the company to manage operations on one database across multiple users, functions, countries, languages and currencies.
Bolloré Logistics chief executive Thierry Ehrenbogen said: “We have chosen the CargoWise One single platform software solution which fully responds to
our needs and ambitions. This new tool will gradually replace all of our existing TMS software.
“It will also enable communication with the solutions we currently have in place like DMP, Concerto and Link.”
Richard White, founder and chief executive of WiseTech Global, said: “The powerful, deeply integrated CargoWise One platform is designed with a global schema and
aims at boosting the overall productivity through electronic integration, cost reduction, digitisation and deep automation capabilities.
“We are pleased to have Bolloré Logistics roll out CargoWise One globally over the coming years to strengthen their competitiveness in a complex and constantly evolving industry.”
Bolloré Logistics has been using CargoWise One in Australia and New Zealand for many years to handle its freight forwarding and customs management operations.
The CargoWise One deployment will begin next year after an initial configuration phase.
