A leading Philippines-based logistics provider has selected a single-platform logistics software system from WiseTech Global to support their global growth and worldwide integration.
Royal Cargo Combined Logistics, Inc., one of the Philippines’ largest independent logistics companies, has finalised a worldwide rollout of an enterprise-class system that’s set to assist the multinational in its mission to integrate global operations and drive future expansion.
Royal Cargo had initially implemented WiseTech Global’s award-winning cloud-based logistics management system across its European sites during 2012. After identifying the organisational and productivity benefits a single-platform system brings to a multi-site business, it began implementing the solution across its sites worldwide. Royal Cargo is now in the final stages of its global integration of the single-platform system, following a successful implementation throughout its Philippine operations.
Underlining the importance of technology in today’s logistics industry, Royal Cargo cites single-platform systems as the key component for businesses wanting fully integrated operations on a global stage. Andrew Raeuber, Royal Cargo’s executive vice president for freight forwarding explains that the coordination and communication of operational activities between staff, service providers and customers is one of the biggest challenges for logistics businesses operating globally. Their previous operating system lacked the interoperability features needed for an expanding organisation such as Royal Cargo.
WiseTech Global had the functionality the global logistics provider needed to streamline processes, increase productivity and fully integrate their operations. Raeuber adds that a single-platform system will be crucial as Royal Cargo plans to branch out in the South East Asian market, with the cloud-based system making it even easier to deploy into new markets.
Mike Coney, vice president of Asian business development for WiseTech Global says Royal Cargo’s rapid rollout of the system demonstrates the solution’s effectiveness and robust nature. By taking full advantage of WiseTech’s customer services, support, learning materials and WiseCloud delivery, Royal Cargo has met its integration needs by rapidly implementing the system in its existing markets, while putting everything in place for future market growth.
