Four Soft, a global player offering software solutions for the transportation and logistics industry, has announced that it is bringing top players of the logistics industry on a single platform to form a strategic initiative – FFIFA (Freight Forwarding Industry & Four Soft Alliance).
Players like DHL, Geodis Wilson, CEVA, Agility, FedEx and Continental Group have come together for the first time to drive efficiencies in the logistics software deployment. The members will collaborate and collectively suggest the adoption of best practices across the industry.
Kieren Ring, CEO, Global Institute of Logistics, said, "I have been observing the growth of Four Soft from the past few years and they have the acquaintance with the global logistics players, which makes them an ideal partner to hold this initiative. I am sure this will help the Logistics industry to achieve the next level of maturity in their business processes."
Palem Srikanth, Chairman, Four Soft, said, "The logistics industry has been facing serious problems due to lack of standardised business processes. It has made them less competitive and led to lack of control on their IT budgets. We believe this is the right time for leading players of the industry to come together and adopt a collaborative approach to the common industry problems."
Rajshekhar Roy, CEO, Four Soft, said, "FFIFA will kick start much needed collaboration and the defining of common industry standards, resulting in lowering the communication costs among various players and using IT as a tool of competitive advantage."
