Global logistics solutions group WiseTech Global has joined Cargo iQ to provide independent freight forwarders with access to industry best practices, through its operational platform, CargoWise One.
CargoWise One users will be able to access Cargo iQ’s quality standards and processes from within the platform, once it is fully integrated, driving significant time savings and removing the need to facilitate Cargo iQ in a separate platform.
Richard White, founder and chief executive of WiseTech Global, said: “Across 150 countries, CargoWise One enables logistics service providers to execute highly complex cross-border and multimodal transactions, and to manage their operations within a single globally capable system.
“Joining Cargo iQ lets us take its standards and processes further across the industry, helping members to measure success, and ultimately improve the value of airfreight for forwarders large and small, as well as their customers.”
Cargo iQ is currently rolling out its new SME Solution, which provides independent freight forwarders with planning and control options for its member airlines.
WiseTech Global will enable more small and medium enterprise (SME) forwarders to take part.
“Innovation is transforming air cargo and WiseTech Global is one of the companies at the forefront of that change,” said Cargo iQ executive director Ariaen Zimmerman.
“At Cargo iQ, we collaborate to improve the industry’s sustainability with a focus on control through end-to-end transparency of up-to-date planning and shipment progress.”
