Shipping News Feature

DUBAI – WORLDWIDE – In common with just about every other major shipping group DP World has clambered aboard the band wagon to offer 'a seamless, end to end supply chain', something many will feel is what freight forwarding agencies have always sought to provide.

These days of course digitalisation is the buzzword and the DP World offering is a new digital logistics platform named CARGOES Logistics, the almost inevitable capitalisation of the name of course these days presumably intending to bring the product to prominence and make it more memorable, and not just to irritate copy writers.

Initially the new addition to the Dubai based port and logistics group portfolio will offer customers access to book cargo from the UAE to India as well as India to multiple destinations across the Middle East, Subcontinent, Southeast Asia, the Far East and North Africa, with the intent to grow the service as things progress. Rizwan Soomar, CEO & MD, Subcontinent, DP World said:

“This announcement is a testament of our commitment towards enabling smart logistics globally. With CARGOES Logistics, our aim is to build and offer highly efficient, seamless and end-to-end transparent supply chains. The new digital solution will simplify the container shipping experience providing visibility across all modes of transportation through smart enablement of IOT based solutions. We will continue to invest in technology and work with our customers to drive innovation, continually add new products and features and provide solutions to meet their global logistics needs.”

With CARGOES Logistics, DP World says customers can choose from multimodal logistics options, ship freight by sea, road, and/or rail, get instant quotes, swift booking confirmation and multiple secure payment options in three simple steps, Search, Choose & Book. Pradeep Desai, Chief Technology Officer, DP World concluded:

“Demand for digital solutions has never been higher and will only keep growing. We are leveraging technology to create value for our customers and help drive growth. DP World created CARGOES to solve pressing challenges caused by supply chain related inefficiencies. It’s an holistic solution powered by technology targeting all aspects of global trade including Finance, ERP, Tracking, Terminal Operating System, Customs software and enabling end-to-end logistics.”
