DHL Freight has launched a new IT system in France as part of its ambition to create a single transportation management system (TMS) for all DHL Freight operations throughout Europe.
The new solution, called Evo, combines all core business operations and has now been implemented in all terminals in France. According to DHL Freight, Evo will be implemented in Turkey soon.
“Evo is a great example on how we can benefit from the digitization in our business. Availability of data and data quality are becoming increasingly decisive factors. A single, unified platform across Europe increases our efficiency even further and eases the daily life for our employees in the same time. Everyone can access consolidated customer information in real time, affording transparency for the operational staff throughout the entire production chain,” explained Uwe Brinks, CEO DHL Freight.
Based on an existing framework, Evo has been developed entirely in-house to match the specific requirements of DHL Freight operations. The platform unites IT processes spanning from order entry to invoicing in administration and from pick-up to delivery in operations.
Using a single IT platform for all core products will help DHL Freight increase efficiency and facilitate international coordination. The implementation of this new TMS allows the customers more efficient and better coordination of their shipments as well as improved customer service due to increased visibility.
