CEVA Logistics has started rolling out logistics platform CargoWise across its network to replace multiple legacy systems, standardise operations and deliver “greater efficiency” throughout its business.
CEVA said the rollout is expected to be completed in five years; by the end of 2022, 50% of all CEVA Logistics locations will be operational on the CargoWise platform and the whole project will be completed and fully deployed by 2025.
Richard White, founder and chief executive of CargoWise parent company WiseTech Global, explained: “CargoWise, enables logistics service providers to execute complex transactions in areas such as freight forwarding, customs clearance, warehousing, shipping, tracking, land transport, e-commerce and cross-border compliance, allowing them to manage their operations on one database across multiple users, functions, countries, languages and currencies”.
CEVA Logistics’ chief executive, Mathieu Friedberg, commented: “By implementing CargoWise, CEVA Logistics will further improve productivity and efficiency as we strive to lead the way in multi-modal forwarding and contract logistics operations.
“Thanks to its experience across the transport and logistics sector, CargoWise is the right choice to provide this new digital platform. CEVA Logistics recently invested to improve the customer journey and this implementation allows us to develop a high-level employee journey as well.”
White added: “We are extremely pleased to welcome CEVA Logistics to our global rollout family.
“The world of logistics has experienced significant upheaval over the past six months with the digitization and automation of processes critical for future success.
“CargoWise will empower and enable CEVA Logistics to significantly improve efficiencies across its logistics and supply chain operations and continue to build its presence and strength globally.”
