Enabling supply chain visibility and efficiency through cargo and e-document tracking & tracing.

The innovative and strategic modular solution for optimizing freight transport, focused on digitalized port logistics and real-time information obtained from intelligent nodes along the supply chain.

We enable the exploitation of the potential of automated procedures across the international global door-to-door supply chain through integration with Milos® IoT Platform and connectors, that allow logistic data and security information to be shared as digital data flow, supported by innovative technologies (RFID, OCR, Blockchain, Notarization) and smart devices integration (Tag, e-seals, Container Monitoring Units).

Every day, Transport and Logistics operators need to adapt their operations, connecting their systems with an everchanging number of protagonists and solutions.

Circle Group Federative Services enable quick and simple interoperability between existing intermodal supply chain platforms, improving decision-making efficiency and operational optimization.

By using customized connectors, the legacy systems can easily and automatically dialogue with the surrounding logistics environment, effectively integrating the information made available by the connected third parties’ systems.

Benefits

  • Cost and time saving
  • Reliable, secure and updated data, avoiding manual errors
  • Positive impact on the environment
  • Availability of “smart systems” with proactive decision-making support (i.e. notarization)
  • Compliant with data management policies
