Europe Cargo

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions are great, but successful implementation requires careful thought, consideration and engagement from all stakeholders.

EUROPE CARGO is an international freight forwarding company that was established in 1992 in Antwerp as a complete service-provider towards local companies being involved in shipping, logistics & transport. The founding of the company was a result of the desire to service the Belgian market and provide a better and faster service towards our customers.

Over the years EUROPE CARGO developed itself into a more all-round player in this industry on the international market where today they still gain more and more market share in the industry of shipping and transport.

However, the philosophy remained the same as from day 1 where they still strongly believe in their distinctive capabilities, providing an all-round service to their clientele, based on being an effective and efficient team, working on a personal basis with their esteemed customers.

Challenges

  • Old-fashioned custom operational software with limitations to expanding, updates, security & support capabilities
  • Non-automated communications
  • Client server Technology
  • On Premise implementation
  • Manual input of 3rd party online applications
  • Redirect accounting details to cloud by 2020
  • No API integrations reducing staff productivity because of multiple screen and application interactions

Fred Konings, General Manager of Europe Cargo was looking for a solution which solved all the above in one single system, with seamless migration of the existing data.
