丹马士首推数字化货代服务

      丹麦航运公司——穆勒-马士基集团的第三方物流子公司丹马士正推出数字化货运代理服务Twill。
 
      Twill已经完成选定客户的测试阶段。从4月10日起,该平台将向英国市场开放。 
 
     客户可以通过Twill的在线平台即时预订舱位,管理相关文件以及跟踪货物流向。该平台突出四个主要功能,包括即时报价、集成文件处理、货物位置跟踪和预防性异常管理。
 
     最初,Twill局限于中英之间的海运业务,但在未来几个月内其服务将覆盖到更多的航线,衍生出更多的产品。一位Twill发言人向American Shipper透露,在Twill扩张的第一阶段,其将聚焦于亚欧贸易。
 
      Randa Accessories Logistics公司经理Jo Southwell已经在使用该平台,他说:“我们非常高兴能够在Twill开发的早期阶段就参与进来。在线平台已经提高了货物位置信息的透明度,这意味着我们可以在任何时间知晓货物在供应链中的位置。以前,我们依赖很多人工操作来确认货物位置,比如与我们在中国的团队来回发送电子邮件。但通过Twill,我们在一个地方获取所有信息,使用起来非常简单。”
 
      Twill的推出也是穆勒-马士基集团诸多规划中的一部分。该公司在去年秋季表示,通过其集装箱子公司(即马士基航运公司,马士基码头(APMT)和丹马士)的网络,其将在数字化一体化进程上寻求更大突破。

Damco launches digital freight forwarding start-up
 
Damco, the third-party logistics subsidiary of Danish shipping conglomerate A.P. Moller - Maersk, is launching Twill, a digital freight forwarding start-up.
   
Twill has been closed in a test phase with a select number of customers, and from April 10, the platform will be openly available to the UK market, Twill said.
   
Twill’s online platform will allow customers to instantly place bookings, manage documentation and track shipments. The solution focuses on four key features, which include instant quotation, integrated document handling, milestone transparency and proactive exception management.
   
Initially, Twill is only focusing on managing ocean shipments within the China to UK trade, but will add more shipping routes and products over the coming months. In the first part of Twill’s expansion, the company will focus on the Asia-Europe trade, a Twill spokesperson told American Shipper.
 
Randa Accessories Logistics Manager Jo Southwell, who is already using the platform, said, “We were really pleased to be involved in the early stages of Twill’s development. Already the online platform is giving us improved visibility of our shipments meaning that we can see where our goods are in the supply chain at any given time. Previously, we relied on a lot of manual processes including emails back and forth with our team in China, but Twill allows us to see all information in one place and it is so simple to use.”
  
The launch of Twill can also be viewed within a broader initiative by A.P. Moller-Maersk, which said in the fall it is seeking to become more digitally progressive and holistic through its network of container-oriented subsidiaries (namely Maersk Line, APMT and Damco).
