The International Port Community Systems Association (IPCSA) has expanded its membership by welcoming Kale Logistics Solutions, the first Indian company, to join IPCSA.
Kale Logistics Solutions is a leading Global IT solutions provider focused on providing cutting-edge technology solutions to the logistics industry. Its broad solutions portfolio ranges from ‘Internal Business Automation Systems'(ERP systems) to ‘Community Solutions’ that help various players in the logistics value chain to communicate and transact with each other electronically.
Kale Logistics’ Container Digital Exchange system at Tuticorin port has been presented to the Prime Minister of India, as one of the top industry innovation in trade facilitation. A case study on Kale Logistics’ IT solutions has also been published in the “Supply Chain Management” book co-authored by Kellogg’s Business School professors and the solutions have been considered in Top 10 innovations by KPMG in their Adding Wings publication.
Speaking about Kale Logistics’ community and ERP solutions, Kale Logistics Solutions’ CEO, Mr. Amar More said, “Our community systems are very different from the traditional CCS, as they play a much wider role than functioning solely as a forwarder for an airline or forwarder to Customs EDI. They allow SMEs to run their entire business on the CCS application and have several fulfilment mechanisms, including web portals, system-to-system integration and bureau services. We provide a completely neutral platform, so there is no conflict of interest. Our Community Systems are available as SaaStoo. Our solutions are available across multiple platforms like PC, mobile phones etc. The distinct feature of our solutions is that we give users tools to prevent service failures rather than report service failures which many other systems do.”
Kale Logistics already have more than 2,000 clients across the globe, offices in India, UAE and Africa, and have plans to start operations in Europe. “We are experiencing a wide demand for our solutions in America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the Far East and are already working with several industry associations and airports. By joining IPCSA, we will be able to share and enrich our industry experience, learnings and adoption strategies by interacting with global industry peers. There is a great potential within IPCSA for collaborating and combining each other’s solutions to enable fast turnaround times and a digital infrastructure for trade facilitation. We look forward to building digital corridors between the other community system operators and connecting the global logistics industry more closely”, Mr. More, added.
Richard Morton, secretary general of IPCSA, said, “We are delighted to welcome Kale Logistics Solutions as our newest member. IPCSA continues to expand its influence geographically and is representing its members at the highest levels, including through our consultative status at the International Maritime Organization and Special Consultative Status at UN ECOSOC.”
