Yusen Logistics favours Fiorano for digital revamp
Yusen Logistics has implemented Fiorano Software’s platform as the integration backbone for all inbound and outbound client traffic with its warehouse management system in Singapore.
Rajesh Rao, business development director, Fiorano, says after a “rigorous evaluation” of various options, it was chosen as the platform for exchanging data in real-time with customers, partners and warehouses.
Yusen provides freight forwarding and solutions ranging from standalone operations to supply chains. According to Fiorano, Yusen’s customers used manually-coded protocols to place purchase orders, “creating operational problems and service delivery challenges”.
Fiorano says its digital business platform integrates applications and technologies into an “enterprise nervous system” – meaning Yusen can now turn around customer onboarding solutions in “24 hours or less, irrespective of the data formats used by its customers”.
In addition, Yusen is using Fiorano ESB’s visual tools and codeless environment; and custom APIs are now being deployed offering “seamless interaction with suppliers”.
Headquartered in Japan, Yusen’s 2017 revenue was $3.9 billion. It currently operates more than 500 distribution centres in 43 countries.
Fiorano, a Silicon-Valley based firm, was established in 1995. Companies, including non-fintech ones, that have used its software include AT&T Wireless, L’Oréal, McKesson, NASA, Rabobank, Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), Schlumberger, the US Coast Guard and Vodafone.
Earlier this month, Bank of Kigali, Rwanda’s largest commercial bank, chose Fiorano’s platform for its digital overhaul. That project includes integration with the bank’s Temenos T24 core banking solution with support for online and offline banking features.
