Digitalization is bringing unprecedented upheaval across all sectors worldwide, and the freight forwarding domain is no exception. With the advent of digital freight platforms, the freight forwarding sector is indeed witnessing a seismic shift today. Digital freight platforms are ideally playing an increasingly prominent role in the space by bridging the gap between independent freight carriers and shippers that rely on them. A pivotal player that is leading this transition in South Asia is Ezyhaul.
Ezyhaul is a leading digital road freight platform in South Asia that is facilitating short-haul, long-haul, and cross-border shipments for shippers by linking them with transportation companies. By putting forth the freedom of choice of a marketplace and the convenience of a digital freight forwarder, Ezyhaul is swiftly carving out a niche for itself in the region today. Notably, the platform caters to the end-to-end transportation solutions of shippers, from sourcing trucks to door-to-door transportation. Ezyhaul has more than 70,000 trucks registered on the platform on that front, which can suit a range of logistics requirements.
“It is difficult for small (transportation) companies to get return loads, so we decided to develop the platform so that there is better utilization of their assets and at the same time, provide shippers with a one-stop centre to transport their goods,” says Raymond Gillon, co-founder and CEO of Ezyhaul.
What’s driving Ezyhaul ahead in the domain is its expertise in handling the transportation of fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG).
For shippers, interestingly, the platform offers complete control of the transportation process
Ezyhaul supports multi-drop and multi-pickup operations with a range of features, including dynamic route and load optimization electronic proof of delivery (e-POD), barcode scanning, and round the clock real-time updates. The shippers can also arrange container haulage movements via the platform for their import and export shipments in addition to reliable and efficient shunting and depot services.
For shippers, interestingly, the platform offers complete control of the transportation process. With more than 7500 transportation companies registered on the platform, the shippers can choose the ideal carrier that suits their logistics requirements. The platform can also completely optimize the shipment processes with real-time visibility, electronic timestamps, and e-PODs. Further more, Ezyhaul’s advanced and integrated route optimization algorithms ensure that the orders are delivered at the most optimal costs.
On the other hand, Ezyhaul opens a window of opportunities for the carriers to optimize the utilization of their vehicles and grow their business. Besides enabling transportation companies to connect with new clients, it puts forth a plethora of features for them. For instance, Ezyhaul helps in tracking and tracing the truck movements and provides full transparency of the fleet. Similarly, it allows carriers to measure and monitor the transporters’ performance with key performance indicators (KPI) on a daily basis.
Riding on the coattails of such competencies, Ezyhaul is quickly becoming the go-to digital freight platform for both shippers as well as transportation companies. Ezyhaul is currently connecting eight countries in one platform—their road freight routes link to China, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Laos, Myanmar, Cambodia, and Vietnam. By expanding to more countries in the region, Ezyhaul is definitely set to digitize the logistics operations across South Asia
