CMA CGM has collaborated with logistics technology company Haulio to move containers in major Thailand inland corridors.
The Singapore-based firm will move CMA CGM containers on the major inland corridor of Bangkok, Lat Krabang and Laem Chabang.
Haulio is Singapore’s fastest growing container haulage platform in the country, with more than 90% of Singapore’s hauliers onboard.
Haulio software allows hauliers to find available containers and shipping providers – and facilitates pickup and delivery of containers across the region.
Benoit de Quillacq, Managing Director of CMA CGM Thailand, said, “CMA CGM’s priorities to provide its customers what they need and to ensure operations efficiency can be driven with Haulio’s digital solutions and network of hauliers.
“Our shippers would benefit from streamlined and optimised haulage trips; this consequently reduces carbon emissions from trucking the containers.”
Since the early-stage pilot in 2020, Haulio has onboarded over 150 trucking companies with a network of more than 3000 container trucks in Thailand and transacted over 300,000 TEU on the platform with one of PSA’s JV local partners – ESCO.
PSA was one of Haulio’s earliest investors through PSA unBoxed.
Alvin Ea, Co-Founder and CEO of Haulio, added, “We are delighted to become a haulage solutions provider of CMA CGM in Thailand after experiencing the benefits of our platform in Singapore.
“This serves as a huge validation to a young startup like us as we embark in our journey in solving real problems with an industry leader like CMA CGM.
“With container shipping volumes rising, it is imperative that greater efficiency and digitalization is achieved on the haulage end.
