“Granular visibility across our shipments – especially international ones – have always been a challenge for us, where we are highly dependent on the promptness of our forwarders or other partners we work with. Without this visibility, we may be subject to delays that would cause liquidated damages and demurrage costs.

With the Trames solution, we have been able to easily gain visibility and track all our shipments, avoiding unnecessary delays and costs. Being able to work with our partners on a neutral platform has benefitted us too; our staff now have more time to focus on other duties and achieve greater efficiencies and productivity across our processes.”

Mr Jarryl Hong, Director, HEC Electrical & Construction

“Having since used Trames, we have managed to substantially reduce the number of paper documents and communication channels to one single platform. With the Trames document repository, our partners have also been able to easily and promptly check shipping documents whenever they are uploaded.

Any action performed will also trigger a notification to all parties in one shipment – this has eased tracking and improved response time. Overall, reducing paperwork and the number of emails between our partners and us has not only been a great experience but also improved our operations.”
