MIAMI–Network Shipping Ltd. (NWS), the ocean logistics arm of Fresh Del Monte, in partnership with Grydd Inc., is streamlining and ensuring nearly 100% compliance in its shipping operation by digitizing and automating with Grydd’s technology. The move comes as part of NWS’s continued effort to enhance agile processes with new technologies to better serve customers, continuing to drive growth in third-party services for Fresh Del Monte. Grydd, a logistics and supply chain technology solutions company with customers like Golden State Foods, ILG Logistics and Atlantic Express, has a proven track record in making logistics management low cost, fast and easy, connecting everyone and everything under one platform.
Grydd’s technology modernizes a very manual process that relies heavily on spreadsheets, letters, phone calls, and has the fallibility of hundreds of human beings. Now with the implementation of Grydd technology, NWS manages its assets, plans routes, books shipments, creates purchase orders, tracks assets, shipments, and product conditions with full transparency of its financial and operative data.
“This technology partner gives the power to make better decisions thanks to its data integration and machine learning models, reducing friction, waste of time, and money,” said Francis Mc Cawley Foster, Head of Commercial at Network Shipping “Partners like Grydd only further our mission in being a reliable cargo solution to a wider audience.”
The market is demanding faster lead times, lower costs and a better service experience, yet 75% of supply chain and logistics companies in the world are still operating under manual processes – a solution Grydd technology provides.
“Now they [Network Shipping] have full control of their supply chain, giving them end-to-end visibility, transparency, and predictability in all the processes. Our system empowers their collaborators with real-time business intelligence and intuitive project management capabilities that are easy to use and understand. Hence, they are always connected and in control,” said Dan Acosta, CEO & Founder of Grydd.
NWS is outpacing its big shipping line competitors with an almost 100 percent on-time arrival rate versus the reliability of big shipping lines that is between 26 to 50 percent, thanks to the digital transformation powered by Grydd.
