Logistics technology company WiseTech Global has entered into a partnership initiative with C.T. Freight, an international freight forwarder with extensive coverage throughout Australia. The partnership is designed to help accelerate the creation and expansion of technological innovations in the logistics industry, including automation through digitisation, natural language processing and machine learning.
Richard White, CEO, WiseTech Global, said, “The logistics industry is under intense pressure as eCommerce pushes upward on shipment numbers and applies downward pressure on consignment size, price, and margins. eCommerce is disrupting the old world order and will force logistics providers to higher levels of automation whilst border agencies continue to raise the bar on timely, accurate, and compliant trade data.
“WiseTech Global is focused on improving productivity, quality, speed, visibility, and manageability in the logistics industry. Our development partner initiatives represent a tightly targeted commitment to further automate logistics execution processing, moving CargoWise One to ever higher levels of throughput.
“With C.T. Freight as a development partner on high volume airfreight and eCommerce automation, we will further develop our cutting-edge productivity and automations to address these issues across the logistics industry and its many segments.”
C.T. Freight has bonded warehouses at each major Australian gateway, and through the initiative the company will gain access to developments and deployments of WiseTech Global software.
“One of the most compelling features of CargoWise One, and of WiseTech Global’s philosophy, is productivity,” said Clive W. Thomas, CEO, C.T. Freight. “Eliminating rework, reducing risk and improving margins by automating entire processes frees up specialist resources who can then concentrate on adding value back into the international supply chain. In our industry, the gains achieved by minimising errors and automating processes can have a tremendous impact across all modes and geographies.”
