Ramco Systems, a provider of cloud-based software, has announced that it will partner with Indonesia’s leading logistics firm PT. Cipta Krida Bahari (CKB Logistics) to digitize its supply chain.

CKB, which offers supply chain solutions for industries such as heavy equipment, oil and gas, and construction, provides multimode freight forwarding services in multiple areas, such as project logistics, customs brokerage, and port management.

According to a statement, CKB has rolled out the first wave of ‘Ramco ERP for Logistics’, a digital solution that is expected to save costs and boost the efficiency of its warehouse operations.

Ramco’s multi-functional ‘Logistics Suite’ will also be used by CKB to manage finances, rating and billing, assets and transportation.

In addition to this, the mobile-enable platform offers auto-picking configuration and end-to-end resource management, allowing CKB to track shipments for more effective planning processes.

 

 

Iman Sjafei, President Director of CKB Logistics, commented on the go-live: “Logistics companies must digitize their operations to automate data-heavy processes, in order to stay flexible and meet rising consumer demand.

“With Ramco’s solutions, we aim to have a unified system that can centralize our organization-wide operations, ensuring streamlined and automated flow of information.

“With Ramco, we plan to scale up our business processes and push our system’s efficiency to greater heights aligning to our strategic vision.”

P. R. Venketrama Raja, Chairman of Ramco Systems, added: “An ERP built for logistics service providers (LSPs) was an unchartered market opportunity.

“We embarked on building this comprehensive suite to address the LSPs and have found very good traction, globally. The successful go-live at CKB will be a key milestone in our Logistics ERP journey.”

CKB Logistics has completed the first phase of the implementation programme, with the rest of the company’s supply chain scheduled to transition before the end of 2019.
