Logistics solutions group WiseTech Global has announced a strategic agreement with supply chain leader Bolloré Logistics to roll out its CargoWise One platform.
The Bolloré solution, which is used in 130 countries around the world, allows logistics service providers to execute complex transactions in areas such as freight forwarding, warehousing and shipping, as well as the tracking of cargo.
In addition to this, users are able to manage their operations on one database across multiple countries, languages, and currencies.

As a result of its partnership with WiseTech, CargoWise One will now be set up for Bolloré Logistics to use across its worldwide network, including Africa.
The roll-out will also support Bolloré Logistics’ “ONE TMS” programme, an IT solution which strengthens the company’s entire network by providing strong and integrated processes.

Thierry Ehrenbogen, CEO of Bolloré Logistics, also made a statement: “We have chosen the CargoWise One single platform software solution which fully responds to our needs and ambitions.
“This new tool will gradually replace all of our existing TMS software. It will also enable communication with the solutions we currently have in place like DMP, Concerto and Link.”
The CargoWise One deployment will begin in 2020 following an initial configuration phase.
