Leading Asia-based 3PL to use on-demand hub to track and manage shipments across all ocean carriers. GT Nexus announced today that Kerry Logistics has awarded it a contract to launch a multi-carrier ocean shipment visibility platform over the GT Nexus portal. The system will provide status information from every major ocean carrier in Kerry Logistics network, representing most of the world’s top lines.
With its head office in Hong Kong, Kerry Logistics has operations in 260 cities in the Asia Pacific region and their global network covers six continents.
GT Nexus will capture shipment status data from carriers through existing integrated feeds, standardize the data and then make the information viewable online. Personnel in any Kerry office can access the platform through standard Web browsers.
“We move high volumes of containerized freight for customers all over the world,” said Wilson Lee, Director of Information Technology at Kerry Logistics. “This system gives us the visibility and control we need to deliver superior service to customers. GT Nexus has the carrier integrations, data management processes and applications already in place which saves us tremendous expense and time.”
In addition to shipment tracking, the system will support other logistics management needs for Kerry Logistics, including:
- Event management and automated alerting for proactive container management
- Electronic shipment execution with ocean carriers
- Web-based document exchange between customers, carriers and partners
- Strategic transportation management capabilities like procurement and freight audit
- Electronic feeds of logistics data directly into complementary Kerry systems
“Kerry Logistics is a leader and they will maintain that status through superior technology,” noted Greg Johnsen, EVP of Marketing at GT Nexus. “We are thrilled they selected GT Nexus to support their rapid growth.”The platform is active now and rolling out across the Kerry Logistics network.
