deugro, a company of the deugro group and the industry-leading project freight
forwarder specialized in turnkey projects, has rolled out WiseTech Global’s integrated logistics execution platform, CargoWise.

Starting with deugro’s branch in Madrid, Spain, the CargoWise rollout will continue
across all branches worldwide and represents an integral milestone in deugro group’s
global digital transformation strategy, known as the UNITED Strategy. deugro’s UNITED
Strategy is designed to streamline and optimise processes and increase efficiencies
across the organization, providing greater value to clients.

“We needed a solution that would complement and support our global digitalization
strategy, transform the client experience and take our operational excellence to the
next level,” said Thomas Fuchs, corporate vice president business processes and IT,
deugro group.

“After conducting a thorough analysis of the systems available in the market, CargoWise
was our choice, as it is the most comprehensive platform. Its global transparency and
real-time visibility across the supply chain will enable us to increase efficiencies and
allow us to further deliver consistently high-quality services to our clients.

“In addition to the quick implementation period, the key benefits for us were
CargoWise’s deep integrations and powerful functionality, particularly the one-file global
database and upfront data verification tool, which we hadn’t previously seen in the
market.

“Just as the world rotates on its axis, the new TMS will be the center of all operational
activities. Therefore, we named our new TMS Axis, connecting our best minds with
technology across our global network. It will be at the heart of all activities, while also
being part of the deugro group DNA.”

CargoWise will be rolled out across the deugro network of more than 900 users in 70
offices spanning 40 countries in a staged process, with completion across their global
offices expected by the end of 2022.

“We are pleased to support deugro’s commitment to improving supply chain
efficiencies through their global digitalization strategy and with their decision to roll out
CargoWise. The powerful functionalities of our platform and our deep productivity and
automation capabilities, will provide the business with the tools needed to execute
complex transactions with greater efficiency, manageability and visibility and will play an
integral role in accelerating their global digitalization strategy,” said Richard White,
founder and CEO, WiseTech Global.

Licensed across 160 countries, CargoWise enables logistics service providers to execute
highly complex transactions in areas such as freight forwarding, customs clearance,
warehousing, shipping, tracking, land transport, ecommerce, and cross-border
compliance, allowing them to manage their operations on one database across multiple
users, functions, countries, languages, and currencies.
