Reliable and flexible platform
Since 1994 OTX Logistics has been a logistic service provider on a worldwide scale. As an air and sea freight transporter OTX Logistics transports goods for diverse industries. For example, the fashion, lifestyle and high-tech industry.
OTX furthermore deals with all the administrative formalities such as permits, price negotiation, bookings with shipping companies and contacting customs. Also the coordination between all relevant parties will be taken care of, making sure the transport from the manufacturer to the warehouse will go as smooth as possible.
Overview is crucial for an industry as complex as the transport business. What about my goods, where are they, maybe even more important: will they get there in good time? In this case OTX Logistics was not our only customer, but also the parties that are being shipped. International companies, for instance, who want their stock for their stores. We brought all the information together, for all parties involved, into one: The OTX Portal.
There is a lot of information available for every shipment that will take place, for instance: the order number, the type of shipment, weight, measurements, shipped goods, type of transport and estimated arrival time. Next to this, the transport is often divided in phases. Each phase being a different party involved in the transport route. From the manufacturer to the harbor or the airport will be taken care of by transporter A, at the same time the airplane or the ship is arranged by another party involved. On arrival in the Netherlands the parcel will be handed down to transporter B, until it is in the warehouse of the customer. This process needs good coordination.
A small portion of the data
available per shipment.
Changing transporter, cooperating parties and processes within the transport route can vary per customer. From within the portal, the client can make adjustments at will, ensuring a smooth transport process.
For the amount of goods transported internationally it is not necessary for the client to receive information per shipment. Sometimes this is not even needed. Freights that belong together can therefore be classified in bulk-orders, making sure the information stays orderly.
