Norfolkline, part of the A.P. Moller-Maersk Group and one of Europe’s leading door-to-door transportation service providers, has successfully gone live with Kewill Transport, the best of breed transport management system from Kewill (LSE:KWL), a leading provider of software solutions that simplify global trade and logistics.
The multimodal solution has gone live in the UK and Italy, integrating road, rail and ferry operations. Following the success of this first phase of the project the solution will be rolled out across more than 20 sites in 10 countries. The implementation of Kewill Transport provides Norfolkline with a future-proof transport platform providing increased flexibility and visibility across its logistics operations, which will enable the company to streamline the business and enhance its customer service.
Jacco Schonewille, CIO at Norfolkline, said, "Kewill showed great commitment to this project and worked in partnership with the Norfolkline team to achieve great results. The collaborative nature of the team was second to none and any challenges that we faced were overcome."
Schonewille continued, "The solution has been integrated with our current systems and provides us with an efficient interface, as well as providing support across the logistics division. We are now keen to begin the second phase of the project, where we will continue to roll out the technology across the rest of the business – in total across more than 20 sites with 384 users. The Kewill software will enable Norfolkline to support its comprehensive business processes, ranging from intermodal operations to non-asset-based third party logistics."
Jacquie Boast, Chief Operating Officer, Europe, at Kewill, commented, "We have been committed to delivering the first element of this landmark project, working in close partnership with Norfolkline and supporting them throughout. Kewill Transport will not only provide visibility across Norfolkline’s logistics operations, but provide the flexibility for the business to react to new opportunities."
