19 Mar Press release: Nunner Logistics selects Eurotracs Econnect Platform for chain collaboration
Helmond (The Netherlands), 19th march 2015 –Logistics Service Provider Nunner Logistics focuses on enhanced cooperation with both its clients and with carriers. This by using a modern software platform for order exchange and execution monitoring in the logistics chain with a prime focus on cold chain.
Leading for this are the increasing demands from clients and shippers in the area of Track & Trace, expected arrival times and more stringent quality control. This includes the necessary transparency of the temperature in the supply chain as a result of the new GDP guideline.
Erwin Cootjans (CEO Nunner Logistics): “As an asset light service provider we work together with various carriers which in turn have different telematics systems in use to record and communicate this kind of information. For us as a logistics service provider it is inefficient and costly to create and maintain a dedicated link with every carrier and every system. However, our clients require uniform and reliable information on the execution of the shipments and any deviations thereof. Shippers from the pharmaceutical industry are leading in this requirements but this quickly becomes commonplace in other sectors as well. ”
The eCONNECT collaboration platform of EuroTracs is a neutral cloud based environment that makes it easy to share order information with carriers and which unlocks status information about the execution of orders to the platform. Each Party (shipper, logistics service provider or carrier) that uses an existing ICT system (ERP, TMS or telematics) have in this way to build a link only once, which then is also usable for cooperation with other logistics partners.
Nunner’s partners can easily use eCONNECT via their Web browser (Microsoft, iOS or Android) from a PC, tablet or smartphone to access the information relevant to them. This finally enables an efficient and easy cooperation in the logistics chain.
