A leading Austrian freight company has reported substantial gains in productivity after implementing WiseTech Global’s award-winning, cloud-based logistics software solution.
The Austrian headquartered ACS Logistics GmbH & Co KG, an independent global air and sea freight forwarder and integrated logistics specialist went live with WiseTech’s solution in June 2013. ACS Logistics has since reported a significant increase in its internal productivity and an improvement in the breadth and depth of the services and support it can offer its supply chain customers.
Thomas Sticht, co-founder of ACS Logistics confirms that their end-to-end job productivity has increased by at least 20 percent in addition to raising the quality of their services.
Given that customised, timely and more accurate information has become a central demand within their industry, Sticht says WiseTech Global has positioned ACS Logistics to offer this from a truly integrated system, taking them to a completely different level of opportunities and vastly increasing efficiency and productivity levels. This has helped create not only a major competitive advantage but a working environment that increases their employees’ professional satisfaction too.
The cloud-delivered single platform solution enables ACS Logistics to run state-of-the-art technology without huge investments in infrastructure, premium licenses or IT staff, supporting its drive for an agile and lean organisation and allowing the company to continue to rapidly expand while controlling costs.
The solution allows ACS Logistics to deliver both standardised core logistics processes, including full EDI compatibility; integrated modules for transport, warehouse and order management; and online document, shipment, management and exception reporting as well as tailored, technology-based service solutions.
