Hellmann Worldwide Logistics announced the rollout of CargoWise, the integrated single-platform logistics solution of WiseTech Global. The new Transport Management System will be implemented for all Air and Sea freight operations across the global Hellmann network.

Hellmann, the globally active logistics service provider, will implement CargoWise to enhance operational processes within its global Air and Sea freight operations by standardizing systems and databases and enabling more efficient resource usage across the entire supply chain.

In addition, the integration of CargoWise with Hellmann’s customer facing solutions further optimizes customer experience by allowing for an automated and transparent information exchange with clients around the globe. Following the completion of a pilot phase, Hellmann will implement CargoWise across 42 countries including the US, Australia, Germany, the UK, India, South Korea, South Africa and Hong Kong.

“Transcending the challenges in global logistics sustainably and further developing the service quality for our customers, requires a global integrated platform that can provide end-to-end logistics execution. Essential to our decision was uncompromising delivery of real-time and accurate data visibility, a high degree of automation and a strong compliance and risk mitigation. Another argument in favor of CargoWise was the ability to integrate with existing systems,” said Reiner Heiken, Chief Executive Officer of Hellmann Worldwide Logistics.

“We are passionate about providing our people with a stimulating and empowering working environment. With the global rollout of CargoWise, we will enable our staff to deliver their full potential and add further value to our customers.”

WiseTech Global Chief Executive Officer and Founder, Richard White, said: “We are pleased that Hellmann Worldwide Logistics has chosen CargoWise as their freight forwarding solution for their Air and Sea freight operations globally. CargoWise will provide Hellmann with a highly scalable platform that will not only improve compliance, safety, and visibility, but also enable invaluable improvements to productivity across their global supply chain ecosystem.”

Licensed across  around 150 countries, CargoWise enables logistics service providers to execute highly complex transactions in areas such as freight forwarding, customs clearance, warehousing, shipping, tracking, land transport, e-commerce, and cross-border compliance, allowing them to manage their operations on one database across multiple users, functions, countries, languages, and currencies.

P&O FERRYMASTERS today announces it is joining forces with Scan Global Logistics to improve the daily service between the Benelux region and Sweden as it further strengthens its pan-European logistics network.

The partnership with the leading Nordic-based global freight forwarding provider will improve and strengthen both companies’ multimodal logistics footprints in two key northern European economic areas.

P&O Ferrymasters’ General Manager in Amsterdam, Marcel Manshanden, said: “This new partnership will further strengthen our capacity to find the right solutions for customers who face logistical challenges in transporting goods across Europe in a context of time-critical, cost-constrained supply chains. Our vision is to continue expanding our network into new geographies, enabling trade to flow more effectively and efficiently both for our customers and the economies which rely on the goods they supply. We look forward to the success this partnership will bring and to expanding our cooperation in the future.”

Scan Global Logistics’ Managing Director for Scan Global Logistics Road Sweden, Peter Anderson, said: “It is a strategically responsible partnership, which goes to show that even in times of uncertainty, opportunities arise and with our combined efforts, the customers of both companies will experience even better logistic options.”

P&O Ferrymasters and Scan Global Logistics will offer daily truck departures for Full Truckload (FTL), Less than Truckload (LTL) and Groupage services between the Benelux region and Sweden.  The partnership will use a combined cargo model, increasing the operational frequency and efficiency of the route, lowering costs for customers and expanding their range of logistics solution options. This latest step follows the introduction of a number of new services in the last 12 months, such as services connecting Budapest, Duisburg and Rotterdam, announced in June 2019, and also between Oradea and Lodz, announced last October.

P&O Ferries is a leading pan-European ferry and logistics company, last year sailing 27,000 times on eight major routes between Britain, France, Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, Holland and Belgium.  Together with its logistics business, P&O Ferrymasters, the company also operates integrated road and rail links to countries across the continent including Italy, Poland, Germany, Spain and Romania, and facilitates the onward movement of goods to Britain from Asian countries via the Silk Road. P&O Ferries is part of DP World, the leading provider of smart logistics solutions, enabling the flow of trade across the globe.

FedEx Corp. today recognizes the entry into force of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement. This agreement will benefit all three economies and make them more competitive around the world.

At FedEx, trade is our business, and expanding global trade is essential to our customers, our workers and our company. USMCA replaces the twenty-six-year-old North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), helping to streamline trade across the North American market, which is of critical importance to FedEx and our customers.

“We applaud the governments of the United States, Mexico and Canada for working together to approve and implement an agreement that simplifies trade for the highly integrated North American supply chains,” said FedEx COO Raj Subramaniam. “Modernizing and expanding global trade through free trade agreements like USMCA breaks down trade barriers, creates new job opportunities and helps our customers reach new markets.”

USMCA makes North American trade easier and addresses issues including e-commerce and the protection of intellectual property. When it comes to day-to-day shipping for FedEx customers, USMCA offers several advantages:

  • The de minimis, or duty and/or tax exemption threshold agreed to by the three governments, increases for imports into Canada and Mexico, potentially reducing overall shipping costs.
  • Simplified clearance value limits increase, reducing the amount of documentation necessary. As a result, volumes of formal clearance decrease, lowering costs and increasing efficiencies.
  • Quicker clearance for more shipments will result in higher customer satisfaction.

The agreement is recognized in Mexico as the Tratado entre Mexico, Estados Unidos y Canada (T-MEC) and in Canada as the Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement (CUSMA).
