CMA CGM Group partners with CargoWise

The CargoWise project will enable CMA CGM Logistics to operate its entire business off a single global database which combines global coverage with the integration of CRM and finance functions, as well as the opportunity to shift resources away from non-core functions such as data center management

Ocean carriers will be using advanced information technology to cut costs, improve productivity, and pursue ambitious expansion plans, said Adam Kossak, Chief Commercial Officer for CargoWise.

This inisight was shared as CargoWise announced CMA CGM Logistics will adopt ediEnterprise through WiseCloud across its offices in 50 countries over the next 18 months, following two successful pilots.

“The opportunity to operate off a single global database, to standardize operating procedures and workflow, as well as offer consistent management across multiple departments all fits in neatly with CMA CGM Logistics’ strategic goals,” said Kossak.

CMA CGM Logistics is a subsidiary of the CMA CGM Group, the world’s third largest maritime container shipping company and number one in France. CMA CGM Logistics offers logistics services for international transport.

The CargoWise project will enable CMA CGM Logistics to operate its entire business off a single global database which combines global coverage with the integration of CRM and finance functions, as well as the opportunity to shift resources away from non-core functions such as data center management.

According to analysts with Drewry Maritime Resarch ocean cargo container lines are still being squeezed out of providing “home-grown” integrated logistics services, but CMA CGM seems to be leveraging its partnership with CargoWise to counter that trend.
