Gondrand Group, a leading transport and logistics company with a global footprint, has selected Kewill (KWL), a leading provider of global solutions for the dynamic supply network, to supply an integrated freight forwarding solution to support the Groups strategic goal to become the premium global logistics provider.
The new solution, Kewill Forwarding, will allow the Gondrand Group to rationalise international services by air, sea and road, worldwide. This will enable the company to enhance collaboration between customers, agents and carriers, minimise transaction costs, shrink delivery schedules and improve visibility and monitoring of goods throughout the entire export and import process using a fully integrated system.
Olivier Houart, Chairman of Gondrand Group, said, "This agreement supports our strategic objectives and goals. It will help us to expand our portfolio with premium logistics solutions by using state-of-the-art technology offering our customers enhanced service. It also fits into our functional processes and IT product landscape, and we are pleased to extend our existing partnership with Kewill.
Paul Nichols, CEO at Kewill, commented, This is another very significant business win for Kewill and is further validation that with our freight forwarding software solution, Kewill is addressing the challenges faced by international forwarding companies.
Preparation work for the project will commence in September, with the implementation planned for winter 2008.
