Accenture has unveiled a new cloud-based connectivity and collaboration platform that allows freight forwarders to seamlessly integrate with their partner networks. In this way it is possible to create new business opportunities.

The platform, AFLS Exchange, was designed by the Freight and Logistics Software (AFLS) department of Accenture. The platform provides carriers with real-time insight into their partner and joint venture networks. This enables efficient, seamless and secure transactions for key business functions. These include, for example, checks on available capacity and bookings.

The solution therefore offers customers more product and route options, and enables faster response times by replacing existing, mostly manual, processes. AFLS Exchange can be easily and quickly integrated with a carrier’s existing booking system. Partners are easy to board, configure and offboard.

According to Ganesh Vaideeswaran, managing director of AFLS, AFLS Exchange is designed to help carriers realize the full potential of their partnerships and enable revenue growth. “The platform is easy to configure, reliable and features a plug-and-pay connector to meet the requirements of each carrier and their partner networks.

Fast and secure access to partners’ systems reduces the costs and efforts associated with manual input and processing. The platform also includes important cloud security measures and meets the highest international standards, says Accenture.

There is already a first customer for the platform: Air France KLM Martinair Cargo (AFKLMP Cargo). “We are determined to use innovative technology to transform our business, and AFLS Exchange makes it easy and fast to integrate with our partner network,” said EVP Marcel de Nooijer of Air France KLM Cargo.
