“The ability to integrate and automate all our shipping functions will be vital to our push for greater customer value from here and into the future.”
He noted that the deployment forms a key component of the shipping line’s digital transformation strategy.
Jason Hyeon, managing director of CyberLogitec Global, stated: “Allegro SaaS will help level the playing field as small- and mid-sized carriers stand to enjoy digitialised and automated functions that will reduce time spent on repetitive tasks, reduce human error, boost productivity.
“Meratus Line will be able to provide more powerful, efficient services for their customers.”
The solution, which is tailored for container shipping operations, allows processes to be hosted on a single system and the SaaS version is meant to be provide a user-friendly interface, while enabling remote terms to have easy access to data.
