Kewill, a leading provider of global solutions for the dynamic supply network, has been selected by Tri-Net Logistics Management, Inc., as its solution provider for its U.S. based Freight Forwarding business, to enable it to offer its customers greater visibility and control of shipments.
Tri-Net Logistics Management, Incs. (Tri-Net), a wholly owned subsidiary of Mitsui & Co., Ltd., selection of Kewill extends the existing worldwide relationship of the two organisations which has already implemented Kewills Freight Forwarding Solution at Mitsui & Co.s Freight Forwarding operations in Singapore and Japan. With its comprehensive global capabilities, unique GlobalControl shipment management and complete visibility across all parties in the logistics chain, Kewill Forwarding was an ideal selection for Mitsui.
We needed a solution that could support our customers worldwide, said Nobu Izumi, IS Manager of Tri-Net. It is crucial to our success that we are able to provide all users, wherever they are located, with full visibility and control of shipments. After a rigorous selection process to find the best solution, we found in Kewill the right blend of global vision and dedication to customer service that our business demands. We believe Kewills solution will play an important role in the global standardisation & streamlining of freight forwarding operations among Tri-Net groups worldwide.
The Kewill Forwarding solution leverages Kewills strong knowledge of the Asian marketplace, and delivers key integrations into upstream and downstream supply chain partners to deliver a seamless information flow. The key strengths of the system include a collaborative supply chain web portal, integrated export compliance, and global visibility.
"We are delighted that Tri-Net has once again chosen Kewill to help meet their growing needs, said Mr. Ken Halle, COO, Kewill Trade and Logistics. The strength of the Kewill Forwarding application, along with the unrivaled global domain expertise and delivery capabilities of the Kewill organization matches up well with Tri-Nets needs for comprehensive control of shipments worldwide.

About The Dynamic Supply Network
The dynamic supply network enables enhanced responsiveness to customers through flexible connectivity between partners, suppliers and other parties in the supply chain, providing improved visibility and effective compliance, bridging the gap from a traditional rigid supply chain.
Over the past 15 years supply chain solutions have matured from simple forecasting and factory scheduling applications through supply chain planning and supply chain execution onto supply chain event management as businesses have seen the benefits of improved visibility and the ability to make real time decisions across the extended supply chain. These solutions have to cater for relationships beyond the four walls of factories, warehouses and offices and provide capability across countries, regions and continents.
We no longer see the supply chain as being a linear process of steps from sourcing of raw materials sourcing to the final end customer use. It is in fact much more complicated and creates a true cross-functional network of global partners all dependent on the performance of the other to ensure the product reaches the end customer in the most efficient and profitable manner. Kewill believes that this widened scope and capability is what creates true dynamic supply networks.
The ever increasing amount of global trade will inspire businesses to find ways to reduce potentially longer lead times, manage more complex supply chains and to do this whilst working with more partner organizations and a greater requirement to be able to demonstrate compliance with regulatory controls. Those businesses who accept the challenge will look to solution providers like Kewill who have not just a suite of integrated products but also deep domain expertise required to deliver excellent customer service thereby generating greater business opportunity and enhanced profits.
