DP World has now unveiled cutting-edge online logistics tools and services, covering sea, land and air shipping around the world. Launched last month, the connected ecosystem of platforms will enable freight forwarders and any business, to book shipments of cargo from and to anywhere in the world, by any combination of sea, land and air.
The initiative represents a major step forward in digitizing the management of logistics to increase the efficiency, visibility and the resilience of global supply chains. DP World has accelerated the already planned roll-out of the platforms to help companies meet the challenge of the Covid-19 crisis and keep trade flowing including vital food and medical supplies.
The initiative follows DP World’s acquisition of SeaRates.com, a digital platform that enables customers to transport cargo worldwide at the click of a mouse, along with LandRates.com and AirRates.com. DP World Chief Operating Officer for Logistics and Technology, Mike Bhaskaran, said: “The Covid-19 pandemic has demonstrated that we must do all we can to make supply chains stronger to keep trade flowing, even in times of unprecedented challenges for the world. DP World’s vision is to digitalize supply chains leveraging our worldwide infrastructure of ports, terminals, economics zones and other assets.”
