"We've been using since 2021, integrating the platform with our ERP system. The result? A more streamlined workflow than ever. We're in the know about the arrival schedule of our cargo every week, allowing us to plan with surgical precision. This has made us far less reliant on logistics service providers for information."

"Our supply planning is perpetually current, which means our inventory management stays in shape. This considerably decreases the odds of us having to make surprise, pricey extra purchases." 

— Gijsbert van Leeuwen

"The precise planning we execute is due to the track & trace feature of We live-track our shipments on the platform, making us the first to know if a ship is delayed or a container missed its transshipment boat. Additionally, we receive ETD and ETA updates of our shipments bright and early every morning. This allows us to switch gears immediately. 

No longer do we worry about shipping documentation. The platform monitors what's still pending, making it nearly impossible to allow a ship into the harbor with incomplete documentation. Upon the completion of the document set, we receive an automatic notification. This gives us the green light to safely advance payment to the supplier. 

In summary: partnering with has been a game-changer for us. It's organized, it delivers reliable information about our shipment statuses. Our supply and demand planning is always current, which means our inventory management stays in shape. This significantly reduces the chance of us making unexpected, costly extra purchases."

This shift came with many implications, right in the thick of the high season. Even shipments already en route to the EU had to comply with the new regulations. This caused a state of chaos. In such turbulent times, is a joy to work with, granting immediate visibility of all your container shipments. This enabled us to accurately gauge the situation's impact on our supply planning and pivot quickly."
