DP World launches digital logistics platform for Indian market
The platform covers multimodal logistics options

DP World has launched a new digital logistics platform called CARGOES Logistics, which aims to provide customers with a single-window solution providing instant online cargo booking, efficient movement and advanced tracking from origin to destination.

Using the platform, customers 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 first phase of the solution will be launched from India to multiple destinations across the Middle East, North Africa, Subcontinent, Southeast Asia, and the Far East – with plans to roll out globally.

Rizwan Soomar, DP World’s CEO and managing director for the subcontinent, said: “With CARGOES Logistics, our aim is to build and offer highly efficient, seamless and end-to-end transparent supply chains.

“The new digital solution will simplify the container shipping experience providing visibility across all modes of transportation through smart enablement of IOT-based solutions.”

The solution aims to address complexities and inefficiencies that exist in global supply chains including multiple handovers, inefficient tracking and limited visibility of a shipment across the supply chain.

It hopes to enhance transparency by providing deep tracking of cargo with real time insights, end-to-end visibility and predictability.

The company noted that there will be an all-inclusive price with no hidden charges and efficient end-to-end digital experience backed by the terminal operator’s network of integrated logistics assets and service levels.

Pradeep Desai, chief technology officer at DP World, added: “DP World created CARGOES to solve pressing challenges caused by supply chain related inefficiencies.

“It’s a holistic solution powered by technology targeting all aspects of global trade including finance, ERP, tracking, terminal operating system (TOS), customs software and enabling end-to-end logistics.”
