Scope at GlobCon Logistics
Interview with Jacques de Jong, Director at GlobCon Logistics in Amsterdam, August 2011
Mr. de Jong, what services does Globcon offer its customers?
GlobCon Logistics is a private owned company, which was founded in Doha-Qatar in 2005. Today GlobCon is one of the Middle East’s leading providers of logistics, transportation and distribution services with a widespread global partnership network. The GlobCon Logistics Benelux office located at Amsterdam airport is the group’s foothold for Europe. Here we offer air & ocean import and export service as well as pan-European trucking, warehousing and worldwide door-to-door services. The customers benefit from our in-depth experience and our proactive attitude. We offer truly integrated logistics solutions tailored to meet the customers’ operational and business demands – 24 hours, 7 days a week.
Since when do you use Scope of Riege Software International?
We started with Scope right from the opening of our Benelux office in January 2011. Before we had tested several systems and found that other systems are not as capable as Scope. To me it seems that there is no progress in other service providers’ systems, they are not as innovative as Riege is with Scope.
In which operational area do you use Scope?
Currently we use the Scope modules for air import, air export, sea import, sea export and the Sagitta export module for Dutch customs with 5 users.
What is your experience so far?
Scope is a very mature system, all practical things work very well. You always have all relevant data for any job or shipment at hand, there are lots of very intelligent functions which ease our daily work significantly. Our users didn’t even need much training because the system is so user-friendly and self explanatory. And we benefit of Riege’s excellent, fast and experienced support and service.
Do you plan to extend your Riege solutions further?
Definitely yes, we have very ambitious growth plans, however depending on the global economic development. First step will be to implement Scope in our Head Office in Doha and then roll it out in all branch offices. New offices are planned in USA, China, UK and Germany. We also plan to use the Scope warehouse module and the full customs application.
