CEVA Logistics is aiming to standardise and simplify its 4PL global operations with the roll out of logistics platform CargoWise.

The CargoWise platform allows logistics operators to execute complex transactions in areas such as freight forwarding, customs clearance, warehousing, shipping, tracking, land transport, e-commerce, and cross-border compliance, enabling them to manage their operations on one database across multiple users, functions, countries, languages and currencies.

CEVA will roll out the platform over the next five years, replacing multiple legacy systems.

The switch to CargoWise will enable CEVA Logistics teams around the globe to have real-time visibility of freight forwarding and customs actions on a single platform.

The purpose-built solution gives employees access to the same information in a single database across all functions, offices, countries and languages.

CEVA said that by the end of 2022, 50% of all the group’s locations will be fully operational on the CargoWise platform with the whole project completed and deployed by 2025.

The move to CargoWise is a key part of CEVA Logistics’ IMPACT 2020 plan which aims to both grow the business and improve operational efficiency.

CEVA Logistics chief executive, Mathieu Friedberg, said: “By implementing CargoWise, CEVA Logistics will further improve productivity and efficiency as we strive to lead the way in multi-modal forwarding and contract logistics operations.

“Thanks to its experience across the transport and logistics sector, CargoWise is the right choice to provide this new digital platform. CEVA Logistics recently invested to improve the customer journey and this implementation allows us to develop a high-level employee journey as well.”

WiseTech founder and chief executive, Richard White, said, “We are extremely pleased to welcome CEVA Logistics to our global rollout family. This is a fantastic decision for their business and its thousands of logistics specialists.

“The world of logistics has experienced significant upheaval over the past six months with the digitisation and automation of processes critical for future success.

“CargoWise will empower and enable CEVA Logistics to significantly improve efficiencies across its logistics and supply chain operations and continue to build its presence and strength globally.”
