Dubai-based DP World, a provider of smart supply chain technology, has launched a digital logistics platform.

Called Cargoes Logistics, the platform provides a single-window enabling seamless, safe, secure and efficient movement of cargo. Users can choose from multimodal logistics options, ship freight by sea, road and/or rail, get instant quotes, swift booking confirmation, and multiple secure payment options in three steps – search, choose and book.

The aim is to offer easy and swift cargo booking from origin to destination.

The first phase of the launch will offer access to book cargo from UAE to India, as well as from India to multiple destinations across the Middle East, subcontinent, south-east Asia, Far East and North Africa.

The company wants to tackle complexities and inefficiencies that exist in global supply chains including multiple handovers, inefficient tracking and limited visibility of a shipment across the supply chain. The digital platform should enhance transparency by providing deep tracking of cargo with real-time insights, end-to-end visibility and predictability, an all-inclusive price with no hidden charges, and efficient end-to-end digital experience backed by DP World’s network of integrated logistics assets.

“This announcement is a testament of our commitment towards enabling smart logistics globally,” said Rizwan Soomar, CEO of DP World. “With Cargoes Logistics, our aim is to build and offer highly efficient, seamless and end-to-end transparent supply chains.”

He said the digital offering would simplify the container shipping experience providing visibility across all modes of transportation through smart enablement of the IoT.

“We will continue to invest in technology and work with our customers to drive innovation, continually add new products and features and meet their global logistics needs,” said Soomar.

Pradeep Desai, chief technology officer at DP World, added: “Demand for digital solutions has never been higher and will only keep growing. We are leveraging technology to create value for our customers and help drive growth.”

Cargoes Logistics is part of DP World’s broader Cargoes software suite of products. DP World created Cargoes to solve problems caused by supply chain related inefficiencies. The holistic offering is powered by technology targeting all aspects of global trade including finance, ERP, tracking, terminal operating systems, customs software and end-to-end logistics.

DP World delivers services through an interconnected network of 181 business units in 64 countries across six continents, with a presence both in high-growth and mature markets. It has more than 56,000 employees from 140 nationalities.
