MUMBAI, November 23 2020: TIFFA EDI Services, a leading organization in providing electronic information exchange services in the form of Value Added Network (VAN) along with its global partner Kale Logistics Solutions (Kale), a trusted global IT solutions partner for several Fortune 500 companies worldwide for the Logistics Industry has offered its next-gen PCS-CODEX, the Award-winning platform for electronic Delivery Order or e-DO services.
TIFFA EDI Services and Kale have joined hands to promote paperless trade in maritime sector of Thailand through their integrated and comprehensive Port Community System (PCS). This PCS is the recipient of the award given for ‘Most Innovative Trade Facilitation Platform’ by United Nations and Asian Development Bank in 2019 at the Asia Pacific Trade Facilitation Forum (APTFF). The integrated platform empowers the SME players in the value chain to automate their internal business processes in an end-to-end manner. Kerry Siam Seaport, SITC Container Lines and Kline Logistics, have signed up this award-winning platform for e-DO services and many more are in the process of signing up.
Talking about the development, Vineet Malhotra, Director of Kale Logistics Solutions said, “Our relationship with Thailand and TIFFA is more than 7 years. We have empowered the air cargo sector with digitization of air waybills and now we look at digitizing the maritime sector. Our domain expertise and experience of working in 27 countries and executing global IT projects in maritime and air cargo space will add value to our PCS platform in Thailand.
He further added, “We are hopeful that this digital platform will play a key role in improving Thailand’s Logistics Performance Index (LPI) ranking with World Bank and Trade Facilitation Agreement initiatives with World Trade Organization (WTO)”.
Expressing their delight over the development, Mr.Suwit Ratanachinda, Chairman of TIFFA EDI Services said, “We are offering this solution to ease all stakeholders with this challenging situation of risk from the COVID-19. The old-style Delivery Orders (DO) process which takes time and paper-intensive operations are prone to errors and increased the spread of virus through document exchange.
The initiative of e-DO service is to facilitate ease of doing business to freight forwarders, shipping lines, transporters, terminal operators and Port authorities. This solution offers an open integrated platform connecting all cargo stakeholders on single platform for request, issuance of invoice, secured digital payments, online submission of documents and issuance of e-DO. The stakeholders can perform all these operations sitting at the comfort of their office.”
