Exact Logistics

Exact Logistics claims it has saved around 130 days of work annually after developing its own software to handle orders from Germany.

It developed the freight processing system to meet demand after buying into German freight sharing firm CTL in November.

The system has allowed the firm to save time through automatic postcode and address checks using information from international post offices, sending automatic responses to customers and updating the transport control system.

MD Adam Shuter said: “International deliveries represent about a third of our business and no two orders are the same.

"This new system allows us to process more German consignments efficiently without increasing our costs and provide a complete control and visibility of consignments to and from Germany and other European locations.”

The software, called Palsist, was built by Rugby-based IT firm Karus, which plans to offer the software to other logistics firms in future.
