Geodis IRIS works with PLS WebQuote

Further information has emerged relating to Geodis’s Intelligent Real-Time Information System (IRIS), which the forwarder announced yesterday now offers online quotations and bookings for air and ocean shipments.
Geodis partnered with Hamburg-headquartered Portrix Logistic Software (PLS) to develop the new features, by integrating the IT company’s WebQuote solution with IRIS. WebQuote is an extension of PLS’s Global Price Management (GPM) software.
Henning Voss, PLS co-founder and chief executive, described WebQuote as “an important evolutionary step for an industry that is becoming increasingly digitised”.
He went on: “By simplifying the quote process into one web-based, and fully integrated, tool, a freight forwarder’s customer[s] can input, and access, all the information they require to get the right quote for their specific needs. GPM will then help facilitate the process of turning that price estimate into a concrete booking.”
Dean Devasia, chief information officer for Geodis’s freight forwarding business, added: “We are gaining a real competitive edge by combining such a leading digital solution with the global operational setup that Geodis provides, and seamlessly integrating it with IRIS, which is probably the best customer-facing freight management platform [on] the market.”
PLS, a member of the Portrix Group, has been developing freight rate management applications for almost 20 years. Today it counts five of the top 10 forwarders among its customers.
