Buyers can invite several logistics providers and factories onto the neutral platform so that all order and shipment information is in one place.
Matt Motsick, CEO of SWIVEL Software, informed conference attendees today, “Currently there is a big gap in the market of providing online collaboration between the parties in international logistics. Everyone is still emailing spreadsheets back and forth and there’s a lot of waiting between time zones. It’s time to speed things up,” SWIVEL Software CEO Matt Motsick told conference attendees.
With SWIVEL 360, all parties can get real-time alerts and search the status of a shipment based on SKU or item code, purchase order, bill of lading, container or customer, the Hong Kong-based company said. The collaboration portal also allows simple tasks such as searching airline and sailing schedules, communication with factories overseas and booking freight to logistics partners/carriers.
SWIVEL said other valuable attributes and functionalities include shipment and order track and trace, management by exception through milestone alerts, vendor scorecard capabilities, centralized document repository, easy factory adoption and an online customer booking portal.
Motsick called SWIVEL 360 the “Slack for shipping.”
Built as a neutral platform, buyers can invite several logistics providers and factories onto the platform so that all order and shipment information is in one place.
