Georgetown, CT — February 19, 2018 — With the go-live of Green Worldwide Shipping, Riege Software has reached another milestone in its expansion into the U.S. market. Green Worldwide committed to Scope in August 2017 and after only 5 months of implementation planning, Green Worldwide went live on February 1, 2018, with 111 users, in 10 offices, in 9 cities across America.
As one of the fastest growing forwarders in the U.S., Green Worldwide is driven by innovative freight-forward thinking, technology investment, and providing new value added services to their customers. With plans of expanding into Canada in 2018, the company's growth plans over the next 5 years are to double in employees and shipments as they have been maintaining a 30% year over year growth so far. “Our decision to select Scope by Riege for our automation goals was fairly simple. We wanted to translate our high standards of supply chain handling into a technology that reduced data entry for our freight experts, to give them more time doing what they do best – servicing the client,” said Thomas Jorgensen, CEO and President of Green Worldwide Shipping, “and I believe we truly accomplished our vision.”
Green Worldwide use the scopes of Scope, modules and enhancements, such as Air Freight, Sea Freight, Truck, OMS, Connect, as well as the integration with Quickbooks and NetChb for Customs Brokerage.
"Partnering with a forward-thinking innovator like Green Worldwide Shipping, we knew we were taking on responsibility for all of their freight forwarding technology needs and this would require a great deal of effort, including establishing new interfaces, expanding our customs service offering with our new partner NetCHB, providing rate management, CRM, Warehouse, mobile applications, with much more to come.”, Mark Ketcham VP Riege Software The Americas said, “but in the end, this partnership also represents a milestone for Riege in the U.S. market and we look forward to the expansion of our service offering as a result.”
Thus far, the tool has processed over 3,000 shipments in Scope, over 600+ quotations, over 2,700+ invoices, 18,600 partners, 51+ customers in the web portal Connect, and rapidly growing.
