WiseTech Global becomes the latest software developer to join Cargo iQ
Geneva, Switzerland, Wednesday 26th September 2019 – Global logistics solutions group WiseTech Global has joined Cargo iQ to provide independent freight forwarders with access to industry best practices, through its operational platform, CargoWise One.
CargoWise One users will be able to access Cargo iQ’s latest quality standards and processes from within the platform, once it is fully integrated, driving significant time savings and removing the need to facilitate Cargo iQ in a separate platform.
“Across 150 countries, CargoWise One enables logistics service providers to execute highly complex cross-border and multi modal transactions, and to manage their operations within a single globally capable system,” said Richard White, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, WiseTech Global.
“Joining Cargo iQ lets us take its standards and processes further across the industry, helping members to measure success, and ultimately improve the value of airfreight for forwarders large and small, as well as their customers.”
Freight forwarders of all sizes use CargoWise One, from many of the world’s largest organisations to small independent forwarding operators.
Cargo iQ is currently rolling out its new SME Solution, which provides independent freight forwarders with planning and control options for its member airlines.
WiseTech Global will enable more Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) forwarders to take part.
“Innovation is transforming air cargo and WiseTech Global is one of the companies at the forefront of that change,” said Ariaen Zimmerman, Executive Director, Cargo iQ.
“At Cargo iQ, we collaborate to improve the industry’s sustainability with a focus on control through end-to-end transparency of up-to-date planning and shipment progress.
“Continued digitalisation is crucial for creating and implementing quality standards in air cargo and we offer a warm welcome to WiseTech Global, as our members continue to work on the value of airfreight for customers.
“It is great to see WiseTech supporting Cargo iQ by expanding its solutions to SME forwarders.”
