Kontainers and PORTRIX LOGISTIC SOFTWARE form unique partnership to allow for Integrated Rate Management and Digital Front End capabilities

Newcastle, UK, May 13, 2020 –
2019 was a watershed year for digitisation in freight. The acceleration in adoption was clear to see, with all the major players ramping up efforts as well as starting to see returns on their digital programs. As we follow into 2020 amplified by the Covid Pandemic ,freight digitisation has never been so important. World class digital tools are no longer a nice to have but a customer requirement, as well as a driver of reducing the cost to serve.
Kontainers and PLS have become two globally respected FreightTech brands with a track record for delivery for many of the Top 20 global freight brands. Rate Management and Digital front ends are both critical tools in the current climate as well as being highly complimentary. Both companies have invested significantly in their API capabilities and intend to make it simple for Freight Forwarders to adopt both solutions in one engagement.
Freight forwarders are faced with a multitude of digital offerings however in 2020 none are as mission critical as customer facing and rate management solutions. Being able to access a joint Kontainers PLS solution in one will simplify purchasing decision’s and drastically speed up time to market.
CEO Graham Parker comments: “Kontainers has gained a global reputation for rapid deployment of digital front end e-commerce solutions for the  largest Freight brands all over the world. We have long admired PLS reputation in the Enterprise and believe a joint solution is a huge leap forward for what are by far the two most critical applications Freight Forwarders must now adopt in order to be continually successful this decade."

PLS CEO Henning Voss comments “Having supported the digital journey of forwarders for years, we have seen first-hand the benefits with going digital as this seamless, efficient and high-quality customer service is exactly what is called for these days. Partnering with Kontainers enables our joint customers to benefit from a market-leading digital product and utilize their already complete and fully structured GPM rate database, without having to make any major changes to their already existing setup.”
