Global Logistics Systems (HK) Co. Ltd. (GLS HK), Asia Pacific’s leading provider of e-cargo information management, announced that the company has been certified by Cargo 2000 (C2K) as a fully compliant IT provider of the C2K Data Management Platform (CDMP), helping to meet the quality requirements of the global air cargo industry.
The certification award was presented to GLS HK by Lothar Moehle, Program Director of Cargo 2000, during the recent C2K meeting held at the headquarters of Cathay Pacific Airways in Hong Kong.
The “Asia’s First Vendor” recognition from C2K demonstrates GLS HK’s commitment, technological capabilities and responsiveness in developing world-class solutions for the ever-evolving needs of the airfreight industry. At the same time it reinforces the company’s focus of promoting a higher standard of process excellence to meet the changing demands and expectations of customers.
GLS HK’s Commercial Director Lily Lai said: “The Cargo 2000 programme is an industry standard that both airlines and freight forwarders are striving to achieve. As a CDMP service provider, GLS HK applies the same quality standards by ensuring the robustness and reliability of our network, system and services to ensure stability, security and confidentiality for our customers.”
Ms Lai said that the development of GLS HK’s Easy Data Management Platform
(EDMP™) offers airlines and forwarders a quality data-management tool to embrace quality and transparency in serving customers.
“Our ultimate goal with EDMP™ is to drive the standardization and automation of
business processes, providing quality information and data to boost transportation efficiency and performance,” said Ms Lai. “All shipment data monitored through EDMP™ is measurable for process improvement. Also, if deviations occur, the EDMP™ system allows users to closely investigate the circumstances behind the event, thereby bringing about improvements in operating efficiency and data quality. Ultimately this will help to raise customer service levels and reduce operational costs.”
Lothar Moehle, Program Director of Cargo 2000, said: “Often, the behind the scenes work of the CDMP technology providers that support Cargo 2000’s members does not receive the recognition it deserves. Companies such as GLS HK are playing a vital role in the delivery of our quality management system and we value their commitment and support. It is testimony to the hard work of the GLS HK team that they have become the first technology provider based in Asia to be certified as fully compliant with Cargo 2000’s C2K Data Management Platform (CDMP).”
GLS (HK) will continue its commitment to working closely with IATA’s C2K and efreight technical working groups with the aim of ensuring C2K’s quest for continuous quality improvement and IATA’s e-freight implementation of a cargo paper-free environment are achieved.
