January 2, 2020: 15 branch offices of Dachser India have completed the rollout of the in-house air and ocean freight management system, Othello, in December 2019.
Available in 21 countries, the software allows all stakeholders to track shipments with a unique identification number, offers an automated evaluation of the shipment, and allows mapping of the physical movement of goods throughout the transportation. The system is also linked with Dachser’s overland transportation and warehousing activities.
The rollout of the new transport management system began in May 2019 with the first phase of Dachser India offices in the North and East region, which included Gurugram, Jaipur, Ludhiana, Kolkata; followed by the second phase in Mumbai and the offices in Western India; and finally, it successfully culminates its active operations at the last phase at the South India branches.
“It gives me immense pleasure and pride to announce the great success in implementing our global systems across our branches in India,” said Huned Gandhi, managing director, Indian Subcontinent Air and Sea Logistics.
Edoardo Podestà, chief operations officer, Air & Sea Logistics and Managing Director of the Asia Pacific Business Unit said “With the system rolled out in China last year and India today, not only did we connect the two biggest economies in Asia but also it means we have more than 98% of our global shipments operated under Othello. We look forward to seeing the benefits to our customers in terms of improved transparency and overall efficiency.”
“Moving data is equally important as moving goods. Therefore, a long-term oriented IT strategy and innovative logistics solutions are among the important success factors that make Dachser ready for today’s requirements,” Podestà concluded.
