DHL Global Forwarding has launched myDHLi, a fully integrated online platform for freight forwarders.
The system, which will be launched in North America, Europe, Asia, Australia and Africa, is designed to offer transparent management of freight rates, offers, transport modes, carbon emissions and other relevant shipment data. It combines existing services including myDHLi Quote + Book and myDHLi Analytics with new services and features that include tracking services to make shipments visible nearly in real-time, giving users greater control.
DHL also says that raw data Excel extracts are available, as is myDHLi Documents, offering access to downloadable shipment documents, while data can be analyzed and exported or directly integrated to own systems, based on a suite of APIs.
Tim Scharwath, CEO of DHL Global Forwarding, said, “We have created a one-stop customer portal. By combining services like online quotation and booking with shipment tracking, document accessibility, and data analyses we are creating not only 360-degrees visibility, but also have laid the foundation for customers to manage their logistics – anytime and anywhere.”
