New IT horizon for DG International

[ January 16, 2020   //   ]

Specialist freight forwarder DG International is launching Horizon, a cloud-based, single-platform digitisation, visibility and integration platform. It can be tailored to different business objectives and, rather than being an ‘out-of-the-box’ solution, the platform offers complete visibility over the supply chain enabling customers to request quotes, book shipments and manage freight movements online. A satellite tracking system allows customers to see exactly where their shipments are on each journey while advanced analytics and real-time reporting inform cost-saving decisions and drive business strategy.

Built through Salesforce by DG International’s software development partner Neurored, Horizon is also replacing the company’s internal software, consolidating sales and business processes, and freight management, including satellite tracking of the vessel through to final mile delivery. Phase two of its development will see the use of artificial intelligence to predict changing weather conditions and alert DG International and our customers.”
