LOBSTER_PRO LEADS SWISS AIRFREIGHT MARKET INTO THE PAPERLESS FUTURE
Lobster_pro leads the Swiss air freight market into a paperless future
A third of all goods transported worldwide are shipped by air freight. Behind these enormous flows of goods, however, the logistics processes are often still hugely antiquated: hundreds of documents, emails, faxes and copies are swapped between hauliers, shippers, handlers and airlines to get packages from A to B on time. But eFreight Switzerland is breaking new ground. Their online platform based on Lobster_pro software is paving the way for Swiss logistics firms to move towards a paperless future.
The Lobster_pro supply chain solution automates the exchange of data, documents and messages for eFreight Switzerland. This reduces the amount of paper- and phone-based transactions between the companies involved and their multiple data-entry requirements by up to 50 per cent. This is all made possible by the Lobster_data data management software on which Lobster_pro is based. Companies can now avoid data-entry errors that used to lead to significant delays in the supply chain, and even wrong deliveries.
Improving quality whilst saving time
“The eFreight Portal simply makes the processes between logistics service providers involved in the supply chain even more effective”, explains Peter Somaglia, CEO of IG Air Cargo Switzerland. That’s why this particular stakeholder decided to opt for the portal solution from Lobster PRO GmbH following a call for tender and commissioned its implementation. The results are fewer errors, greater quality and improved safety – and with some enormous time and material savings as well! Goods can also be tracked online with Lobster_pro, enabling seamless door-to-door tracking at the push of a button. eFreight Switzerland is now fully equipped for the digital age of paperless and efficient air freight. The platform already covers their entire export business in Switzerland, and will soon provide solutions for their imported goods as well.
