The U.K.-based freight forwarder Neon Freight has gone live with the ediEnterprise system from logistics enterprise system developer CargoWise.
Launched in November 2012, Neon Freight provides air and sea freight, customs brokerage, European road freight and warehousing services.
Ian Mallon, founder and managing director of Neon Freight, said he’s been able to minimize costs and maximize productivity with the document management features and on demand pricing offered from ediEnterprise.
“I’ve worked for large multi-national companies that used their own in-house systems, and recently used off-the-shelf technology, but when it came to finding software for my own business there wasn’t any other system that could compete with ediEnterprise, on price, flexibility or ease of use,” Mallon said.
Simon Clark, CargoWise vice president of business development for Europe, said the adoption of ediEnterprise by Neon Freight demonstrates the system's applicability to start-up companies.
“Because we work with some of the world’s largest logistics companies, there is a misperception that ediEnterprise is too big to work with some of the smaller companies,” Clark said. “So it’s great to be providing software to Neon Freight at this crucially important start-up phase, which is when companies need a mixture of sophistication and flexibility to really take off.” - Eric Johnson
