Bolloré Logistics announces a strategic agreement to roll out CargoWise One globally

April 26th, 2019

Bolloré Logistics, a global leader in supply chain management, has signed a strategic agreement with logistics solutions group WiseTech Global to roll out the CargoWise One integrated logistics solutions platform globally as of May 2019.

CargoWise One, which is used across 130 countries, 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, thus allowing to manage their operations on one database across multiple users, functions, countries, languages, and currencies.

Bolloré Logistics has been using CargoWise One in Australia and New Zealand for many years to handle its freight forwarding and customs management operations. CargoWise One will now be set up for Bolloré Logistics to use across its worldwide network, including Africa, a key market for Bolloré Logistics. The global roll-out will also support Bolloré Logistics' new "ONE TMS"[1] program, which is a unique IT tool for the company's entire network, driven by strong and integrated processes. The CargoWise One deployment will begin next year after an initial configuration phase.

"The powerful, deeply integrated CargoWise One platform is designed with a global schema and aims at boosting the overall productivity through electronic integration, cost reduction, digitisation and deep automation capabilities. We are pleased to have Bolloré Logistics roll out CargoWise One globally over the coming years to strengthen their competitiveness in a complex and constantly evolving industry." said Richard White, Founder and CEO of WiseTech Global.

"We have chosen the CargoWise One single platform software solution which fully responds to our needs and ambitions. This new tool will gradually replace all our existing TMS software. It will also enable communication with the solutions we currently have in place like DMP, Concerto and Link." said Thierry Ehrenbogen, CEO of Bolloré Logistics.
