X5 Retail Group has launched GoCargo, a solution for booking cargo transportation services online.
10,000 orders a day
The system matches cargo and transport by a number of criteria, including volume, weight, temperature conditions, shipping dates, and loading and parking points. GoCargo is able to process up to 10,000 orders a day, and is fully integrated with X5’s ERP infrastructure, making the process streamlined and cutting out human error.
Rolling out to all networks
By the end of 2017, GoCargo will have been rolled out to all of the retailer’s networks and will be used for all third party shipping orders. In future years, X5 plans to make GoCargo available to other logistics companies.
Timur Parshikov, X5’s Director of Transport, commented: “GoCargo will enable X5 to manage transportation more efficiently by optimising third-party transportation services and cutting logistics costs.”
