CargoWise, the technology solutions provider for logistics service providers (LSPs), has announced that Austrian-headquartered freight forwarder ACS Logistics is adopting ediEnterprise, delivered through the WiseCloud hosting platform to form a strategic pillar of the company's ambitious expansion plans.
Founded in 2011, and managed by industry veterans Gerald Kleeberger, Ulrich Hartwig and Thomas Sticht, ACS Logistics is one of few remaining independent LSPs with a range of specialisations, including global air and ocean freight, as well as offering integrated logistics solutions in Austria. Having embarked on its first significant expansion in January 2013, ACS Logistics is now focussing on the development of non-physical services to enrich their core products and provide additional value to customers. According to Sticht, ediEnterprise has become a strategic and technological parter to ACS Logistics, as the flexibility and sophistication of the software will enable the company to continue to expand rapidly while controlling costs.
"We see ourselves as a 'next generation' LSP capable of applying the most advanced technologies in order to run a truly lean organization," says Sticht. "ediEnterprise, delivered through WiseCloud, offers the highest possible levels of service and flexibility which is why it was the perfect technology for us to adopt. After completing a comprehensive analysis of the different technologies on the market, I've become convinced ediEnterprise is the most advanced and powerful logistics software available because it is a deeply integrated solution, in which different modules can be activated at any time."
Describing Sticht's approach to business as highly ambitious, structured and strategic, Simon Clark, Vice President of Business Development – Europe for CargoWise, says he's delighted to be able to provide ACS Logistics with the technology the company needs to expand rapidly while holding onto a lean and flexible operation.
"As a young and fast growing company, ACS Logistics needed software that worked from the word go so it could quickly bring on new divisions and expand," says Clark. "ediEnterprise through WiseCloud will provide them exactly the kind of platform for growth they need. It's great to see a customer who understands the power of doing business in the cloud, and who is willing to make the most of sophisticated technology."
