Hellmann Worldwide Logistics has signed up to the CargoWise transport management system (TMS) for all air and sea freight operations.

The platform can execute transactions covering freight forwarding, customs clearance, warehousing, shipping, tracking, land transport, e-commerce, and cross-border compliance

Hellmann said using the platform would standardise systems and databases “enabling more efficient resource usage across the entire supply chain”.

The customer-facing element of the platform will allow “for an automated and transparent information exchange with clients around the globe”.

Following the completion of a pilot phase, Hellmann will implement CargoWise across 42 countries including the US, Australia, Germany, the UK, India, South Korea, South Africa and Hong Kong.

Reiner Heiken, chief executive of Hellmann Worldwide Logistic, said: “Transcending the challenges in global logistics sustainably and further developing the service quality for our customers, requires a global integrated platform that can provide end-to-end logistics execution.

“Essential to our decision was uncompromising delivery of real-time and accurate data visibility, a high degree of automation and a strong compliance and risk mitigation. Another argument in favor of CargoWise was the ability to integrate with existing systems.”
