Global Logistics System (GLS Hong Kong) has appointed Electronic Freight Data Interchange (EFDI) to distribute and support its cargo community platform EzyCargo in India.
EFDI will provide sales and marketing functions to promote EzyCargo subscriptions to connect freight forwarders with multiple airlines for digital cargo data exchange.
A local service desk will be setup to provide sales and support services in the market. EFDI will also support certain local administration tasks on behalf of GLS Hong Kong.
Ezycargo, a Cloud based application and the leading product in the GLS Hong Kong portfolio, enables forwarders for e-booking, electronic air waybill data exchange, and the track & trace of consignment status over the Internet or via host-to-host connections. There are currently close to 1,000 Ezycargo subscribers in India.
GLS Hong Kong chief executive officer, Tony Sham said: “We are very pleased to partner with EFDI to market EzyCargoT in India, and to provide local support to our subscribers. We expect to see subscription to increase.
“Forwarders can enjoy the benefits of our single gateway for data exchanges with multiple carriers. New features will also be added to support forwarder needs and local requirements.”
EFDI managing director, Madhav Kulshreshtha said: “We recognise the vast potential for electronic messaging and digitisation that a platform such as Ezycargo offers. With our domain expertise and local knowledge, it would be a winning combination for combination for the industry, given that the Indian Government under the able leadership of our Prime Minister is also pressing for digitisation.”
