There’s an increasing demand for frequent deliveries, small shipments and pinpoint distribution in dense city areas. This needs to be done at the lowest possible cost, using sustainable methods across multiple transport modes.
Coordinating transportation and delivery
Shippers and transport companies need to share capacity information with each other. They also rely increasingly on specialist logistics service providers, who themselves have to synchronise intricate transport operations.
You can simplify this complex world of transport management by using our standards – particularly, our Logistic Interoperability Model (LIM). These will help everyone involved in transportation and delivery share information, work together and align their processes.
Stena Line is a sea freight operator with 22 routes in northern Europe. In an effort to speed up its administrative tasks and cut down on paperwork, Stena Line began using our standards to automate the management of shipments. As a result its administrative work has halved and loading and unloading times have shrunk.
