CLASQUIN, international freight forwarder and expert in overseas logistics, has signed a strategic partnership with Winddle, the collaborative platform for purchase orders monitoring, to ensure agile and uninterrupted management of information, from order to delivery, and to concretely meet the challenges of purchase order (PO) management for its customers.
Real-time visibility and management of supply chain flows
” PO Management is not a new concept for CLASQUIN. Thanks to our experience in the distribution sector, we have developed a strong expertise in the follow-up and management of our customers’ supply orders. Our integrated network of branches, located close to production sites, has been offering buyer’s consolidation and seller’s consolidation solutions for several years now “, says Hugues Morin, Group CEO of CLASQUIN.
To optimize the management and organization of the transportation flows, it is essential to rely on detailed and reliable information on the purchase orders execution.
“This new offer reinforces the services of our control towers at origin and naturally integrates our digital platform LIVE By CLASQUIN that already provides real time and enriched visibility on shipments, dynamic analysis to make sense of their transportation activity as well as collaborative services opened to our clients and their partners,” continues Hugues Morin.
Strengthened collaboration with suppliers
For CLASQUIN, this partnership is part of a digital strategy focusing on collaboration, data enrichment and the use of data as a lever for operational excellence and value creation for its customers.
The integration of Winddle into LIVE By CLASQUIN will strengthen the local collaboration with suppliers, simplify and accelerate their onboarding, facilitate data entry and save time through an optimized experience adapted to each process and workflow. This partnership brings more reactivity and agility in case of disruptions such as production delays, partial deliveries, quality controls, issues with documentation...
“We will be able to be more efficient in following-up with suppliers, better challenge their service level and remove complicated manual processes. Our objective is clear: bring weeks of additional visibility on incoming shipments to our customers, avoid the black box effect, save time in vendors follow up and access anytime data for improved decision making and eventually secure international transport and delivery to the final customer.” explains Frédéric Serra, Group CIO of CLASQUIN.
For Winddle, CLASQUIN reinforces the solution’s expertise in international transport and, through this new offer, fully integrated into the Lyon-based freight forwarder catalogue of services, and enables to address the needs of several retail and industrial customers. With a strong local presence in the countries of origin, CLASQUIN is the perfect partner. Beyond the technological solution provided, the experts of the freight forwarder are at the service of a simplified communication and operational collaboration.
“This direct collaboration with an international transport player is completely new for Winddle; we are used to directly deal with the purchase or supply chain teams. CLASQUIN will allow us to enrich our vision and solution and bring value to more customers,” said Emilia Jevakhoff, co-founder and CEO of Winddle.
Winddle and CLASQUIN have embarked on an ambitious partnership built around a common vision: connect suppliers with supply chain experts in order to offer the best reactivity to customers through new high value-added services.
