Collaboration Problem

Today communication between Sawmills, Forwarders and their importing customers is limited to email and telephone, which limits flexibility in negotiation, supply-chain visibility and insights for all parties involved.

However modern technology can enable much closer collaboration that saves time and reduced non-value added time for front-end staff such as sales and logistics by automising certain steps through-out their work day.
