DP World on Wednesday announced that it was launching a new digital logistics platform called CARGOES Logistics.
The platform provides customers with a single-window solution enabling seamless, safe, secure, and efficient movement of cargo, said local reports.
With this platform, customers can choose from multimodal logistics options, ship freight by sea, road, and/or rail, get instant quotes, swift booking confirmation and multiple secure payment options, said the local reports.
The first phase of the launch is expected to immediately offer customers access to book cargo from UAE to India as well as India to multiple destinations across the Middle East, Subcontinent, Southeast Asia, the Far East, and North Africa.
CARGOES Logistics is apparently aimed to address complexities and inefficiencies that exist in global supply chains including multiple handovers, inefficient tracking and limited visibility of a shipment across the supply chain.
The new digital platform will reportedly enhance transparency by providing deep tracking of cargo with real-time insights, end to end visibility and predictability.
It is also expected to facilitate ease of doing business, boost reliability and flexibility, and provide a seamless experience to customers for their logistics needs.
Rizwan Soomar, CEO and MD, Subcontinent, DP World, was quoted by the local reports as saying: “The new digital solution will simplify the container shipping experience providing visibility across all modes of transportation through smart enablement of IoT-based solutions.”
The reports quoted Pradeep Desai, Chief Technology Officer of DP World, as saying: “Demand for digital solutions has never been higher and will only keep growing. We are leveraging technology to create value for our customers and help drive growth. CARGOES Logistics by DP World is part of the broader CARGOES software suite of products.”
