THE CARGOBASE EFFECT
- Use Case 1
- Use Case 2
A global EMS (Electronics Manufacturing Services) for consumer electronics requires full visibility of inbound shipments from mostly Asia-Pacific to their production facilities across East-Europe and Mexico. Their inbound shipments are booked by their vendors either under EXW or DAP. For their EXW shipments, the vendors have the relationship with the customers’ preferred logistics providers, where often, the EMS – in this case our user - is only notified of the final cost upon receiving the freight invoice. By using Cargobase TMS, they are now able to grant the vendors rights to create shipment request and process an approval flow with the buyers involved, to ensure costs are within budget and all stakeholders have visibility on agreed cost.

While looking at streamlining your logistics processes your key objectives are to create visibility, get control on cost and drive efficiency throughout the organization. That means avoid duplication of data or manual entering data to reduce time and risk. Several electronics companies integrate Cargobase into their existing system environment. This allows them to have shipment data flow directly from their ERP into Cargobase where it can automatically be converted into a pick up request.
