China (Shenzhen) International Logistics & Transport Fair 2016
October 12-14th 2016
Indigo Software, the warehouse management software (WMS) specialist, and DDS Logistics, the transport management software (TMS) provider, have joined forces to help Chinese companies looking to benefit from the countries US $700 billion e-commerce opportunity to get a head start.
The two best of breed European software developers will be exhibiting their advanced technology solutions for manufacturers and transport and logistics service providers at CILF 2016 from Stand B1265, Hall 1.
This will be the first time Indigo Software and DDS Logistics have collaborated at an international trade event and marks the start of a commercial partnership to collectively support companies across Asia who are looking to automate and streamline warehouse and logistics operations to meet the demands of e-commerce.
Rapid growth of e-commerce platforms such as JD.com and Alibaba have created a huge commercial opportunity for China and other Asian economies. As a result of the e-commerce boom, manufacturers and logistics service providers must consider carefully how they can make their warehouses and transportation services more efficient, improving accuracy, lead times, traceability and throughput levels whilst at the same time, reducing costs. This is challenging to achieve without the use of dedicated warehouse management and transport management software, both of which will ensure that in addition to improving productivity, a better return on investment from existing resources can be achieved.
With over 15 customers in the region, including Bunzl and Wesfarmers, UK headquartered Indigo Software established its Asia Pacific operation in Hong Kong in June 2016. Indigo provides warehouse management software solutions to customers either on premise or in the Cloud.
Headquartered in France, DDS Logistics specialises in international trade and transportation software, with customers including international buyers, shippers, forwarders, carriers and 3PL companies. From its office in Hong Kong, which opened in 2008, DDS Logistics provides implementation and support services to international and local customers in Asia such as AS Watson and Carrefour.
"CILF is the primary trade event for the logistics and transport sector and we are aware of the very high levels of interest in both Indigo WMS and the DDS TMS solutions from Chinese businesses who are keen to partner with best of breed technology companies from Europe. We are optimistic about the excellent commercial opportunities ahead and believe that CILF 2016 will be a major success for all involved," says Mike Hill, Managing Director at Indigo Software AsiaPac.
"Many businesses are still using spreadsheets to manage shipment tendering and missing out on the potential to cut at least 10% of their operating costs each year from using a TMS to control their supply chain. We are delighted to be introducing our technology at CILF in the coming weeks," says Philip Van Remoortere, Business Partner at DDS Logistics.
