Intelligence in container logistics
In cooperation with Logit One, Gosselin Logistics offers innovative software development for tracking containers and ensuring more efficient shipments. Geert De Wilde, Managing Director of the forwarding department at Gosselin Logistics explains: “Logit One makes it possible for us to track containers from start to finish, from shipping to unloading, and to be able to respond proactively to deviations from the pre-planned route or the pre-determined schedule.”
“Our SaaS (Software as a Service) is what makes the difference, and on three levels,” Frank Knoors, CEO of Logit One, adds. “First, it increases the visibility of the route the container takes. Data from different sources of information, such as ship movements, transshipments, terminal events and hinterland moves are all consolidated into a single streamlined system and made visible. Secondly, this system can calculate potential alternatives if a discrepancy arises between the planned and actual schedule. It can suggest a different discharge port or multimodal route to ensure the pre-agreed deadline is met. Thirdly, it contains an event management system in which Gosselin Logistics can set its own parameters.”
Geert De Wilde: “The main idea behind this partnership is to enable our customers to save time and money, maintain the maximum amount of control over their supply chain, and reduce their environmental footprint by eliminating unnecessary transport activities. This extra service allows us to offer a reliable logistics solution for time-critical goods. Gosselin Logistics already offers this service for ocean freight shipments. A solution for air freight is in the works.”
