40% Reduction in Operational Delays for a Leading Freight Forwarder in Mauritius

40% Reduction in Operational Delays for a Leading Freight Forwarder in Mauritius

Small Island with Large Opportunities

Situated on the Indian Ocean, Mauritius is a small island country with large opportunities for the maritime sector. Ships travelling between Middle East, Africa, European and Asia Pacific often berth at Mauritius for transhipment. Port Louis, the major port in the country contributes 2% to the country’s GDP. In 2019, the cargo container capacity of the port stood at 1 million TEUs. Thus making it a strategic hub for export import operations.

An industry veteran seeking a Smart system for Scalable & Flexible Operations

Our client is an industry veteran with nearly four decades of experience in offering a comprehensive range of freight forwarding services which goes up to the optimum level. As the volumes began soaring high, scaling operations and capacity improvement was essential. But, a legacy system coupled with manual chores is a potential bottleneck causing significant operational delays. Added to this, manual functions also caused unprecedented data redundancies and errors which consumed hours of operations in paperwork alone and did cause revenue leakage over a period. Most importantly, there wasn’t a provision to facilitate communication within the organizational hierarchies which led to occupational hazards.

Transforming the Freight Forwarding Value Chain

The client requires a future-proof system to unify their operations at the terminal and ensure they looked at addressing

  • Disintegrated processes with manual operations
  • Revenue leakages with underutilization of resources
  • Real-time Business visibility being nearly zero

  • Lack of Customs Compliance
