Toll rolls out Kewill trade management system

Toll Global Forwarding is to implement Kewill’s Global Trade Management suite across its Europe and Middle East operations.

CIO Tom Thompson said: “We were looking for one solution that could manage the end to end freight forwarding process for Toll Global Forwarding, and also handle the complex customs requirements for our shipments throughout the Europe and Middle East region.”

Kewill has begun deploying the global freight forwarding software and global electronic customs software together with Sage ERP Accpac financial package.

Implementation started in the Netherlands and will be rolled out to more than 500 users across operations in Europe and Middle East.

It will provide one central system to book, manage and monitor the complete shipment lifecycle for the all shipments it handles to and from the Europe and Middle East region each month, including ensuring compliance with individual countries’ customs requirements and EU-wide initiatives such as ICS, by submitting the required documentation and exchanging information electronically with local customs authorities in real time.
