Global shipping company Hapag-Lloyd is using logistics and digital supply chain solutions from Blume Global for all motor carrier partners.

The transition to Blume Logistics begins in North America in January.

Blume Logistics will digitally connect Hapag-Lloyd’s network of motor-carrier partners, according to a news release. It covers everything from dispatch work orders to live tracking, invoicing and proof of delivery.

Hapag-Lloyd operates 231 container ships with a container capacity of 2.6 million TEUs (20-foot equivalent units), according to the release.

“Blume Logistics will help improve the quality of our door service for our customers including first- and last-mile visibility while enhancing the efficiencies of our motor carrier partners,” Uffe Ostergaard, president of Hapag-Lloyd’s North America Region, said in the release. “Our North American customers are asking for enhanced end-to-end shipment visibility to better manage their supply chains and by implementing this integrated cloud-based solution we will be able to offer that value-added service.”
