Yusen Logistics Co., Ltd. has begun using the Route Master tool from shipping big data shipping software provider CargoSmart Limited to optimize its ocean route planning.
Yusen can now look at the best routing options when negotiating carrier contracts, make recommendations to its customers, and establish internal routing guides based on information about 29 ocean carriers’ services.
“One of our company’s missions is to use innovative technologies to make continuous business improvements to benefit our customers,” said Chris Kwan, general manager of Yusen Logistics. “Leveraging Route Master’s rich data and analytics power helps us to enhance the service we provide to our customers with intelligent tools for the global logistics industry.”
CargoSmart launched Route Master in March 2017, allowing users to search, visualize and compare shipping routes based on weighted parameters.
“Route Master provides the data and insights to support our customers’ ocean route planning,” said Lionel Louie, chief commercial officer of CargoSmart. “We are pleased that Yusen Logistics is able to extract insights to help it deliver more value-added services to its customers.”
