The outlook for transport and logistics has been very positive in recent years amid increased economic activity, passenger travel, and shipping volumes. At the same time, though, rising customer expectations, data-driven decisions, a need for smart mobility solutions and increasing regulation are all pushing the industry to digitalize and innovate.
Where technological advances are vital, our expertise comes in. We’re proud to have built the state-of-the-art digital solution SensusAero, an easy-to-use web-based and cloud-enabled operations management tool covering the full cycle of airport handling for a flight, the advanced ERP system that enabled U.S.-based ocean freight and logistics company Atlantic Express Corp. to dramatically increase transactions per employee, and many other solutions.
Amid changing customer expectations, technological breakthroughs, and new industry entrants, transport and logistics companies can't afford to sit back and watch. They need to adapt to changing markets proactively.
