Nile Dutch Africa Line (NileDutch) has gone live globally with Allegro, CyberLogitec’s integrated container carrier operations solution.
The carrier, which specialises in West Africa services, is looking to accelerate operational efficiency and harness real-time data for critical decisions and effective resource deployment.
In summer 2018, NileDutch procured Allegro, attracted by its algorithms for automated data capture and resilient service network.
Mark Kraaijenbrink, ICT Director of NileDutch, said: “NileDutch has a massive, intricate network of global offices working 24/7 on complex services. So it is imperative for us to have maximum system uptime to continue providing service quality to our customers.
“The new Allegro solution was launched seamlessly and implemented within a very brief period of just nine months between project launch and go-live.”
The software developer delivered round the clock support during the post-live stabilisation phase for all NileDutch’s global offices and agencies, ensuring a smooth operation, and that users’ feedback and issues were promptly attended to.
WJ van Aalst, CEO of NileDutch, stated:” The Allegro solution is ground-breaking in many ways, including its capability to convert real-time data into instant, actionable insights, and we see it as the cornerstone of NileDutch’s strategy for a future-forward operating model.”
Allegro is a web-based end-to-end, integrated solution tailored for the operations of containerised shipping lines that not only accommodate containerised cargo but also breakbulk and project cargo.
It can cater to container activity planning, booking auto-rating, special cargo validation, profitability simulation and provisioning, in an effort to reduce human error and boost productivity.
It also has simulation and exception management capabilities that enable users to optimally control costs, manage yields and effectively deploy resources and assets.
