Ewals Cargo Care
In the hyper-competitive and complex field of multimodal logistics, it is crucial to have a permanent control over financials and operations, both at a broad level and down to individual order details. That’s why the logistics group Ewals Cargo Care, chose the Globis platform.
IT systems play a pivotal role in the intricate operations of Ewals, which manages more than 3,000 trailers, pulled by 800 in-house trucks and 1,200 external trucks from subcontractors. The primary activity involves unaccompanied trailer traffic via roll-on-roll-off ships or trains, with approximately 75% of the trailers being loaded onto boats or trains. Unlike transport where the driver remains with the cargo at all times, this type of traffic demands meticulous planning. For instance, for a route from Genk to Liverpool, at least four aspects must be planned: the journey from Genk to the port of Zeebrugge, loading a new cargo onto the truck in Zeebrugge, securing the necessary slots on the ferry, and arranging for a tractor on the other side to pick up the cargo. Additionally, agreements with customers regarding connections and deliveries need to be made, taking into account multiple drivers who must adhere to their driving and resting times.
Long-distance transportation is a highly competitive market where every cent matters, and where numerous Eastern European transport firms compete. Traffic by ro-ro ship or train offers the advantage of working with local carriers due to shorter distances and improves the environmental footprint. Ewals combines these local specialties with capacity from Eastern European partners, particularly for long-haul journeys.
