Supply chain specialists to deliver competitive advantage to customers through leading logistics software
Productivity, operational visibility and service integration are set to increase for full-service logistics and supply chain solutions provider, Walker Supply Chain Management, as it implements CargoWise software across its international transportation management and customs brokerage operations. The rapid transition to CargoWise’s highly modular supply chain software solution will deliver immediate and long-term value for the New York-based company and its customers.
Walker SCM (www.walkerscm.com), a certified Minority Business Enterprise, specializes in conceiving and developing specific value-driven, third party logistics solutions and supply chain services. To keep pace with the rapid developments and ever-changing requirements of the industry, Walker SCM sought a new customizable system to meet the growing demands and widening needs of its vendors and diverse range of high profile clients.
Giorgio Laccona, COO, Walker International Transportation, states that CargoWise’s enterprise-class software was identified as the integrated supply chain solution to best help Walker SCM deliver the competitive advantage to its customers: “From our previous experiences, we knew that CargoWise would get us above and beyond the current standard,” says Laccona. “Once fully deployed, CargoWise will bring major, tangible productivity enhancements to our company. Our employees’ day-to-day jobs will be easier and our finance team will have better access and visibility over every transaction — and all in a more user-friendly environment. In addition, our customers will benefit from the universal, high-capacity output of the CargoWise system, while third and fourth party vendors will be able to communicate with us in a common language, thereby reducing the time and cost of customer requirements. Looking to the future, CargoWise is designed to support the expansion and growth of our company.
“Our project and IT teams made an enormous effort to ensure continuity of service throughout the implementation period. Today, we are proud to offer this solution to our customers in partnership with the CargoWise team.”
Gene Gander, CargoWise, Vice President Business Development, Americas, says of the new relationship: “This is a great example of how a company with a diverse portfolio of services can benefit from the added integration our solution provides. Walker SCM has dedicated itself to the rapid deployment and seamless transition of the system and this will enable its vendors and customers to immediately benefit from a higher level of service, while Walker SCM is able to streamline operations and increase productivity across its business.”
