May 27, 2020: Hellmann Worldwide Logistics has rolled out CargoWise, the integrated single-platform logistics solution of WiseTech Global. The new transport management system (TMS) will be implemented for all air and sea freight operations across the global Hellmann network. Following the completion of a pilot phase, Hellmann will implement CargoWise across 42 countries including the US, Australia, Germany, the UK, India, South Korea, South Africa and Hong Kong.
Hellmann will implement CargoWise to enhance operational processes within its global air and sea freight operations by standardising systems and databases and enabling more efficient resource usage across the entire supply chain. In addition, the integration of CargoWise with Hellmann’s customer facing solutions further optimises customer experience by allowing for an automated and transparent information exchange with clients around the globe.
“Transcending the challenges in global logistics sustainably and further developing the service quality for our customers, requires a global integrated platform that can provide end-to-end logistics execution. Essential to our decision was uncompromising delivery of real-time and accurate data visibility, a high degree of automation and a strong compliance and risk mitigation. Another argument in favour of CargoWise was the ability to integrate with existing systems,” said Reiner Heiken, CEO of Hellmann Worldwide Logistics. “We are passionate about providing our people with a stimulating and empowering working environment. With the global rollout of CargoWise, we will enable our staff to deliver their full potential and add further value to our customers.”
WiseTech global CEO and founder Richard White said, “We are pleased that Hellmann Worldwide Logistics has chosen CargoWise as their freight forwarding solution for their Air and Sea freight operations globally. CargoWise will provide Hellmann with a highly scalable platform that will not only improve compliance, safety, and visibility, but also enable invaluable improvements to productivity across their global supply chain ecosystem.”
Licensed across around 150 countries, CargoWise enables logistics service providers to execute highly complex transactions in areas such as freight forwarding, customs clearance, warehousing, shipping, tracking, land transport, e-commerce, and cross-border compliance, allowing them to manage their operations on one database across multiple users, functions, countries, languages, and currencies.
