CEVA Logistics has partnered with Sydney-based WiseTech to roll out the CargoWise platform across its network, aiming to improve productivity and efficiency in its multimodal forwarding and contract logistics operations.
With this integrated logistics platform, CEVA Logistics will simplify and standardise all 4PL operational processes over the next five years, replacing multiple legacy systems within the business and accelerating digitalisation, the company noted.
CEVA Logistics says the move to CargoWise will allow its teams around the globe to have real-time visibility of their operations on a single platform.
CEVA Logistics earlier secured a contract to operate a warehouse and distribution centre in Mexico for IKEA, and it expects half of its global locations to be fully operational on the CargoWise platform by 2022, with the whole project scheduled to be completed by 2025.
The investment in CargoWise is a key part of CEVA Logistics’ IMPACT 2020 plan for business growth and operational efficiency, the company noted. Other recent investments as part of that plan include the purchase of a majority stake in AMI Manica in Africa and the launch of the MyCEVA platform for customers.
Licensed across 160 countries, CargoWise enables logistics service providers to execute transactions involving freight forwarding, customs clearance, warehousing, shipping, tracking, land transport, e-commerce, and cross-border compliance across multiple users, functions, countries, languages, and currencies.
