(PRESS RELEASE) BONN, 22-Jan-2020 — /EuropaWire/ — Leading road freight services, DHL Freight, implements single Transport Management System (TMS) called ‘EVO’ catering all DHL freight operations in Europe.
The IT system, EVO – comes from the term “evolution”, creates an efficiency that chains core business functions. EVO has been executed in all terminals in France.
“EVO is a great example on how we can benefit from the Digitalization in our business. Availability of data and data quality are becoming increasingly decisive factors. A single, unified platform across Europe increases our efficiency even further and eases the daily life for our employees in the same time. Everyone can access consolidated customer information in real time, affording transparency for the operational staff throughout the entire production chain,” declares Uwe Brinks, CEO DHL Freight. “This also enables a high degree of automation and reduces administrative work.”
TMS is a logistics platform, mostly used by transport companies like DHL Freight, which gives their consumers and its workers access to monitor transactions.
EVO has been designed to match DHL Freight operations. The entire process of operations, from invoicing administration, pickup to delivery operations, is being handled by single IT system. Thus, it increases efficiency and better coordination to the shipments improving the quality of customer service due to its transparency.
EVO’s pilot operations in France
“First week of December we have linked with Marne-la-Vallée not only our last but also one of our biggest Terminals in France to the new EVO Transport Management System. It was an exciting journey so far with intensive training and review sessions for our employees across the country. We are already now observing higher speed and process efficiency in interaction throughout our terminals in France and are looking forward to the further roll-out connecting us to other countries,” says Claude Brigand, CEO DHL Freight France.
The DHL Freight’s new TMS improves the delivery operations and efficiency limiting the risk of complication among operations. The full implementation of EVO is expected to be completed by 2022.
“Having EVO up and working in France marks an important step in DHL Freight’s FREIGHT 2025 strategy,” says Stefano Arganese, Chief Digital Officer DHL Freight. “Further harmonizing our systems environment will allow us to deliver the best possible service quality for our customers. I am especially proud that EVO is developed internally”.
EVO is one of the initiatives of Deutsche Post DHL Group in their “Strategy 2025 – Delivering excellence in a digital world.” By 2025, Deutsche Post DHL Group will have invested EUR 2 billion on initiatives to enhance customer and employee experience as well as its operational excellence. As part of the strategy, this will improve and modernize the IT systems and integrate automation, robotics and data analytics on their operations.
Turkey will be the next target of implementation of EVO.
