Amsterdam/Paris, 12 November 2020 - Shippeo, the European leader in Real-Time Transportation Visibility solutions, has joined forces with logistics service provider Ewals Cargo Care.
Ewals Cargo Care is known for its intelligent systems and processes and continuous innovation to meet the needs of customers and partners throughout Europe and beyond. The company, synonymous with capacity, reliability, flexibility and local expertise, handles approximately 3,400 shipments each day from 33 offices spread across 15 countries.
In addition to its own fleet of trucks and trailers, Ewals collaborates with hundreds of partners in order to provide maximum flexibility and service for all forms of multimodal transport.
Shipment visibility has become a top priority in order to remain competitive in the supply chain sector. Shippeo’s platform predicts highly accurate ETAs and displays them in real-time. The ETA calculation predicts a precise time of delivery, even if the shipment travels via multiple legs and modes of transport. This will soon help customers and business partners of Ewals Cargo Care better anticipate deliveries, helping to stay ahead of competition.
Ewals Cargo Care offers companies all over the world an innovative, uniform product, built partly on its own IT platform integrated with experts’ systems, now also including Shippeo. Shippeo’s modern platform, which leverages Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, was selected for being a single portal capable of connecting to any solution from customers and partners, including other real-time visibility platforms.
Bas Schoone, General Manager, BU Ewals Logistics Control and responsible for the implementation of Shippeo within Ewals: "Ewals Cargo Care has selected Shippeo as a preferred partner to provide its real-time visibility platform which is the most complete solution available on the market. In addition, Shippeo’s team is highly customer-centric and open to our evolving requirements.
