Philippine-based logistics and freight-forwarding firm, AAI Worldwide Logistics Inc. (AAI), and its new Express Courier business unit, Black Arrow Express, announced yesterday (27 January 2016) that it will be implementing Ramco System's Logistics Software to integrate its domestic and international freight forwarding operations.
Software provider, Ramco, will deploy its cloud-based integrated ERP solution for Logistics Service Providers to five entities of AAI nationwide. The solution will provide AAI with a single unified system to manage its Warehouse & Transportation, Freight Forwarding, Fleet Planning, Courier Management, and Facility Management integrated with Finance and HR.
According to Arnold Brizuela, President of AAI Worldwide Logistics Inc., and Allan Brizuela, President of Black Arrow Express,Ramco's solution "will enable us to effectively plan and organie vast logistic shipments throughout the Philippines and beyond."
"The logistics industry is at a crossroads, as traditional players face stiff competition from a "smarter" Uberised world. The need to optimise operations, arrest revenue wastage, and gain visibility is driving organisations to adapt latest technology," said Virender Aggarwal, CEO of Ramco Systems.
Despite the emergence of Uberisation and Grabbing, Brizuela takes it as an opportunity. "Technologically-integrated companies, such as ourselves in partnership with Ramco, could only maximise the added retail booking opportunities that platform providers present. While booking and grabbing couriers are now literally within the hands of the customers, Black Arrow and Ramco make it possible for these customers to gain access to our assets, and even an entire universe of logistics solutions," he said.
