Riege Software International Certified by Cargo 2000
Riege Software International offers Cargo 2000 members a reliable Cargo 2000 Data Management Platform (CDMP). At the start of July the software provider received certification by Cargo 2000. The Riege Software International quality management system thus meets all the requirements of the Cargo 2000 standards. With the new Procars Cargo 2000 module shipments can be controlled and evaluated while reports and analyses can be created.
Meerbusch, August 3, 2009 — With the new Procars Cargo 2000 module Riege Software International has created a web-based platform that enables companies involved in the transportation chain to plan, monitor and improve the quality of shipments in line with Cargo 2000. Airlines, air freight forwarders, handling agents and other logistics companies around the world participate in Cargo 2000. The aim of the initiative is to make the transport processes in the air freight industry more reliable and to achieve local improvements through exact process analyses and harmonised quality standards.
Implementation of Cargo 2000 is divided into three phases. Phase 1, the monitoring of airport-to-airport transportation, and Phase 2, the interactive planning and steering of the entire door-to-door process chain, are already integrated into Riege Software International‘s IT platform. Phase 3 will in future enable real-time management at an individual consignment level. The transit times, punctuality and availability of freight at the arrival location will thus become measurable. The accompanying documents of each shipment will serve as the data basis. With the help of electronic reporting not only can costs be optimised but the performance of the entire supply chain can be improved.
Airlines and forwarders can achieve substantial improvements in their performance with Cargo 2000 at very low investment costs. With Procars IT provider Riege Software International offers a harmonised platform on which all the processes can be made available to all participants on a bundled basis. This enables faster comparison of all processes which can then be optimised on an ongoing basis.
Alongside the reliable exchange of information Procars users can also not only monitor all processes but also respond quickly as soon as any problems occur. The Cargo 2000 module can be connected to other Transport Management Systems (TMS) through an interface.
In addition to the official Cargo 2000 requirements, the Riege Software International solution offers complete transparency of the Cargo 2000 status of every shipment in real time. Through the complete integrate of shipment monitoring in the freight management software Procars can offer true added-value compared to other systems.
Integrated logistics is the keyword when it comes to the organisation of worldwide trade flows. Forwarders and airlines which use a harmonised CDMP like Procars benefit from the necessary quality standards and can expand their customer base worldwide. More and more customers rely exclusively on partners meeting the Cargo 2000 quality standards for the transportation of their goods. With the air and ocean freight management system from Riege Software International companies involved in the transportation chain are ideally positioned to meet these requirements and can steer and measure the processes appropriately.
Lothar Möhle, Regional Director EMEA at Cargo 2000, comments: “Especially given the current economic climate, it is extremely important for all players in the air freight industry to identify and eliminate hidden costs. Cargo 2000 offers its members standardised processes and a well-functioning quality management system to achieve this.” He stresses: “Riege Software International, as a long-standing member and now also certified by C2K, supports our members with the technical solutions and expertise to plan, monitor and improve these processes. Unit costs can be reduced by all companies involved in the logistics chain working closely together.”
