DHL Freight implements new TMS in France
DHL Freight is taking the first major step towards creating a single transport management system (TMS) for all DHL Freight operations throughout Europe. The IT system, called EVO as a reference to “evolution,” combines all functions for core business operations.
As a first major milestone, EVO has now been implemented in all terminals in France. Turkey is set to be the next point of implementation. The platform unites IT processes spanning from order entry to invoicing in administration and from pickup to delivery in operations.
“With Marne-la-Vallée we have linked not only our last but also one of our biggest terminals in France to the new EVO transport management system. We are already now observing higher speed and process efficiency in interaction throughout our terminals in France,” says Claude Brigand, CEO DHL Freight France.
Rolling out the new TMS country by country will enable DHL Freight to limit the risks before increasing the complexity as part of a European-wide roll-out. The full roll-out of EVO and replacement of former systems should be successfully completed by 2022. (mw)
