Kewill Inc, provider of shipping solutions that streamline global trade and logistics, has announced that Garmin, the global leader in satellite navigation, has selected Kewill's Universal Carrier Module (UCM) to support its growing operations in Australasia.
UCM, which integrates seamlessly into Kewill's multi-carrier shipping software Flagship, enables customers to easily implement their choice of parcel or freight carrier services and related compliance as their needs evolve. This means Garmin won't need to worry about compliance in the future or support a separate, standalone system to support local shipping carriers.
Kewill Flagship and UCM integrates with Oracle eBS [and OTM] to support Garmin's order to shipping operations.
Kewill's UCM is designed to allow customers to build their own carrier service support and compliance within the Kewill framework, using internal IT services. This capability enables companies like Garmin to determine what shipping services are most strategic for them in any region of the world without relying on vendor support for those services.
"Kewill's Universal Carrier Module afforded us the opportunity to integrate our regional carrier into an Australasia Kewill Flagship implementation," said Dan Kogan, manager of special projects – distribution at Garmin. "We were already leveraging Kewill Flagship in our US and UK distribution center footprint and are pleased to extend this leading platform globally."
"We are delighted that Garmin has decided to expand their Kewill footprint with our Universal Carrier Module," said Alan Gold, vice president of marketing and business development for Kewill Inc. "We designed UCM with companies like Garmin in mind: growing, global companies who have a clear strategic view of their supply chain and who demand tools that enable them to execute on their plans. We look forward to our continued partnership with Garmin, helping them find new ways to expand service and improve efficiency."
