Local logistic player GL Terminal and PT GUUD Logistics Indonesia (operating under the brand “Clickargo”, a subsidiary of Singapore’s GUUD Pte Ltd) have announced the launch of a strategic partnership in Indonesia that will provide digital logistics solutions to a range of different stakeholders. The solutions will include full connectivity with customs authorities, ports and terminals, banks and financial institutions, insurance companies, transportation management providers, ocean carriers/airlines, freight forwarders/3PLs and shippers.
To begin with, the two companies will collaborate to provide truck and container management and e-payment solutions. These services will be aimed at existing and new customers, with co-development of new products and services also planned to help digitization in the local market.
According to GL Terminal, the partnership with Clickargo is expected to play an active role in realizing an improved digital supply chain in terms of service container management, which is currently mostly done via manual processes. It will also simplify processes and make them more transparent, accountable and documented.
Clickargo’s collaboration with GL Terminal will allow it to create new connections and processes within its platform and close existing gaps where many stakeholders operate individually, and not on a common platform for easy access. It plans to incorporate all processes and stakeholders on a single logistics platform that integrates all upstream and downstream processes.
