GEODIS has launched its new Intelligent Real-Time Information System (IRIS) that provides online quotation and online air and ocean shipment bookings globally.
Worldwide freight forwarding customers are able to compare rates of different modes of transport and place shipments within less than a minute. Using the newest technology, IRIS will provide an innovative, digital experience to its supply chain customers.
Other than the latest development of online quotation and booking features, IRIS also offers 24/7 full visibility on real-time shipment statuses, accessibility to shipment documentation, KPI management, label printing, mile-stone alerts, exception management and customised reporting. GEODIS operators and customers can save working time and data accuracy will be improved with the automated booking process steps; making it simple to use and efficient. Local charges, pick-up, first and last mile deliveries, end-to-end cost structures, and covering port-to-port rates can be seen through the pricing engine.
GEODIS’ Executive Vice President of Freight Forwarding, Kim Pedersen claimed that the company will be in the lead in terms of digitalisation in the freight forwarding industry. The platform will help customers to be more efficient in this ever-changing industry. This will aid them to solve their logistical limitations.
The user-friendly solution was gradually launched across the globe such as the USA, Sweden, and Indonesia, since February 2018.
