GLS Hong Kong opts for EFDI as its EzyCargo distributor in India

Global Logistics System (HK) (GLS Hong Kong) has teamed up with Electronic Freight Data Interchange (EFDI) to distribute and support its EzyCargo cargo community platform in India.
EFDI provides connectivity to 79 international carriers, Indian Customs EDI System (ICES) and the US Automated Customs Environment (ACE).
Under the GLS deal, EFDI will provide sales and marketing functions to promote EzyCargo subscriptions to connect freight forwarders with airlines by means of digital cargo data exchange.
GLS’s EzyCargo is a Cloud-based application that enables e-booking, electronic air waybill data exchange, and track and trace of consignments over the Internet or via host-to-host connections.
There are currently nearly 1,000 EzyCargo subscribers in India.
Madhav Kulshreshtha, the managing director of EFDI, said: “We recognise the vast potential for electronic messaging and digitisation that a platform such as EzyCargo offers.”
Tony Sham, GLS Hong Kong’s chief executive, noted: “Forwarders can enjoy the benefits of our single gateway for data exchanges with multiple carriers. New features will also be added to support forwarder needs and local requirements.”
GLS Hong Kong offers a range of IT solutions relating to digital cargo operations, with a portfolio of applications and solutions connecting forwarders, airlines, terminals, customs and postal administrations.
