Twill, a digital freight forwarder designed to make shipping simple, has today gone live for companies importing goods into France from China, India, Vietnam and Indonesia.
Twill offers end to end visibility for customers by providing fast online access to pricing, all paperwork stored in one place, and a proactive customer care team keeping customers continuously up to date.
Troels Stovring, CEO of Twill commented: “Small and medium customers often don’t have the resource or time to book their shipment in the old-fashioned, time-consuming way. They need to remain focused on their core business and provide excellent customer service to their own customers. By offering a very simple freight forwarding experience in Twill, they are enabled to do and typically spend much less time focused on their logistics. We’re excited to be leading the way in developing new digital tools in the French market, and our Twillers are looking forward to getting started – we can’t wait to fulfil our first French booking on the platform!”
Olivier Sainterent, CEO France and Israel at Damco added: “We have seen significant growth in France year on year since 2010 but our challenge is retaining small and medium-sized customers. We fully expect that Twill will help us to better serve this segment by offering a very simple, easy to navigate freight forwarding experience. From experience, we know that the French market is generally seen as quite conservative but with Twill we have a huge opportunity to encourage our clients on their digital journey. We’re 100% convinced that this is the future of freight forwarding.”
