May 2, 2012, Guildford, UK – Ontime Logistics, a leading Scandinavian logistics service provider with over 220 employees in 15 branches across Norway, Sweden and Denmark, has signed a multi-year, multi million euro, agreement to implement Kewill Transport and Kewill CustomsXchange.
Ontime Logistics has been transporting goods within Scandinavia for over 100 years and is committed to the use of technology to ensure a consistent and professional customer service and to compete in terms of delivery precision and lower cost. The Kewill solution will enable Ontime to improve its operations including transport sourcing and contract management for over 2,000 consignments per day as their business continues to expand.
Kewill’s Logistics software suite was selected after full evaluations of numerous transport management systems providers. Kewill Transport will deliver a modern, flexible and adaptable technology platform to Ontime users across Scandinavia, helping them to ensure high delivery precision, shorter lead times, greater flexibility and a professional customer service. In addition, Kewill CustomsXchange will support and simplify the submission of multi-country Customs declarations, electronically.
The new solution will simplify Ontime’s systems landscape by replacing three separate country based transport management systems with one standard system. The Kewill Logistics suite will deliver unified business processes to Ontime and support their customer care strategy where all customers are designated a customer care contact person. It will also contribute towards a common culture across the organisation.
As part of the project, Kewill will manage the delivery of third-party ORTEC Transport and Distribution software for advanced route planning, route optimisation and route consolidation. The comprehensive solution will be deployed across Ontime’s entire multi-country operations as a hosted solution by Kewill Managed Services.
Aniela Gjøs, Chief Executive Officer at Ontime Logistics, comments, “Our partnership with Kewill will help us deliver on our four key principles: high precision; single point of contact; clearly defined products; and integrated Scandinavian network. It will also support our ambitious growth plans. We have found the Kewill team to have strong domain experience and a professional approach that fits well with our culture.”
Jacquie Boast, COO EMEA at Kewill, states, “Ontime Logistics is a well-established logistics service provider in Scandinavia and we are delighted that they have chosen Kewill for their multi-country deployment. This deal further strengthens our position in the Nordics and comes on the back of our recent win with Itella in Finland. Ontime Logistics’ decision to have their solution managed by Kewill Managed Service is another endorsement of our experience providing business critical hosted solutions.”
