Kewill has expanded its supply chain management services with the introduction of Kewill Flagship Express, a non-premise-based technology designed for small- and medium-sized businesses (SMEs).

According to spokesmen, this is a “cost-effective U.S. origin shipping solution” that does not sacrifice performance or flexibility.

This new offering comes on the heels of the announcement of Kewill Netship, a cloud-based, fully integrated end-to-end, desktop shipping service.  With the announcement of Flagship Express, Kewill is now able to provide mid-market companies with functionality previously only available in enterprise-level systems at a price point that meets “budgetary needs.” 

Details of Kewill Express include:

• No hardware cost, lower total cost of ownership
• Multiple integration options to ensure data integrity
• Supports Low to Medium shipping volumes
• No or extremely limited IT support requirement
• Scalability – low overhead to migrate if volumes increase
• Robust add-on modules that add value to a variety of work flows

“Kewill Flagship Express provides us the ability to offer customers a shipping solution with this level of capability to fill a void that currently exists with other solutions targeted to the small to mid-market organizations,” said Alan Gold, vice president of marketing and business development for Kewill Inc. “Typically these companies need to choose between carrier-supplied, limited functionality shipping tools, expensive on-premise software, or complicated and costly implementation cycles.  With Kewill Flagship Express we’re changing all that.”

As was the case a month ago, the Global Port Tracker report from the National Retail Federation (NRF) and maritime consultancy Hackett Associates is calling for annual import cargo volume gains at United States ports, as retailers gear up for the holiday season.

More than nine months after saying it was not for sale, Long Beach Calif.-based non asset-based third-party logistics (3PL) services provider UTi Worldwide has apparently changed its tune, with the company saying it has entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by Denmark-based global 3PL DSV for $1.35 billion and $7.10 per share.

September carloads—at 1,417,750—were down 4.9 percent—or 72,597 carloads— annually, and intermodal—at 1,365,980 trailers and containers—was up 1.2 percent—or 16,272 trailers and containers.

Slowing global trade and a bloated orderbook of large vessel capacity mean that container shipping is set for another three years of overcapacity and financial pain, according to the latest Container Forecaster report published by global shipping consultancy Drewry.

The NRF is calling for 2015 holiday sales to see a 3.7 percent annual gain to $630.5 billion, which comfortably outpaces the ten-year average of 2.5 percent.
