Digital Freight Platforms may soon make ordering and scheduling your next shipment as easy as ordering a takeaway pizza.
In a global economy, companies are highly dependent on a functioning supply chain. But today, cargo owners who need to ship their products halfway across the world face substantial challenges: skyrocketing shipping prices, port congestions, and blank sailings all contribute to sizeable uncertainty. And shippers know that a single slipup in the supply chain is likely to affect the entire transport journey and possibly mean lost sales and business. The need to choose the best shipping option and know exactly where your goods are is more urgent than ever.
Digital freight has been around for a while. Still, it is becoming increasingly popular, especially in a turbulent market, as it allows companies to choose the third-party carrier of their choice through a secure marketplace. But not only do these software systems let cargo owners pick the best transporter based on their needs, whether it is low price or accelerated delivery. A digital freight platform can also show exactly where the goods are, the route plan, and the estimated time of arrival – all critical in a world that relies on up-to-date information.
A digital freight platform lets cargo owners choose from a list of freight forwarders and logistics companies that meet their demands and makes pricing dependable and transparent. This freedom speeds up the booking process significantly as it essentially can be done from anywhere, even on your smartphone. Hence no more application and customs documents will need to be faxed and signed – instead, copies are verified and signed on the digital freight platform (not to be confused with a digital freight forwarder).
While few in the shipping industry seem to question that digital freight is the way forward, there are still discussions on how fast this disruption will happen. At Adnavem, we believe that the future is already here. There's no turning back from digitizing the shipping business even more: booking, scheduling, signing, and monitoring is only the beginning. With digital freight software systems becoming even more automated, the business models that exist today will be redefined. Technology will streamline the transport process and result in increased efficiency for everyone involved.
Adnavem was created with the mission to create a more flexible, secure, and sustainable supply chain. Today we offer enhanced efficiency, transparency, and elimination of intermediaries, providing a unique value proposition for cargo owners and logistics companies alike.
