Faced with an increasingly changing and complex environment for its customers, the Sinari Group aims to continue creating value for its customers through innovation carried out with them and their partners, but also to simplify their daily lives. The digital services developed by TransFollow thus participate in this creation of value for the benefit of the Sinari Group’s customers.
Sébastien Rufflé, President of the Sinari Group talks about the company’s projects on the market as well as the transition to e-CMR, supported by TransFollow: “The heart of the announcements of changes to the Group’s TMS solutions is first of all the integration of “on-board computing” functionalities in their mobility and the simplification of the link with vehicles based on Eliot’s know-how (a fully integrated offer where the social and the embedded are one). These are then significant advances for our mobile applications, making it possible to integrate concepts such as the signing and dematerialization of consignment notes or CMRs via our partnership with TransFollow officially launched during the SITL”.
Result: all the mobile applications of our transport and fleet management software therefore offer two levels of dematerialization of consignment notes:
- A certified dematerialization of the consignment note integrated into our TMS tools and their mobility.
- Guaranteed digitization of non-falsification of consignment note information flows via e-CMR solutions designed by TransFollow. In particular, it allows the interoperability of this flow beyond the solutions of the SINARI Group, but also the sharing of e-CMRs between all the players in the supply chain.
This major partnership with the leading supplier of transport and logistics planning software offers TransFollow growth opportunities in the French market. It will greatly promote interoperability between the systems of the players involved in the transport chain.
Indeed, by nature, CMRs or consignment notes are documents that require strong collaboration between carriers, charterers, shippers and consignees. In a digital environment, this collaboration implies a strong requirement for interoperability between the different systems used (TMS, WMS, ERP, FMS, etc.). TransFollow has been working tirelessly since the beginning of its activity to strengthen this interoperability, without which the consignment note cannot be widely and completely digitized.
Alexis Perinet Marquet, CEO of Viaservice comments: “The digitization of transport documents, and more particularly of the consignment note, which is a collaborative document, requires strong interoperability between the systems of the actors involved in the transport chain. Our partnership with the Sinari Group considerably strengthens the ability to exchange information and documents between companies equipped with Sinari Group solutions, but also with those equipped with other solutions already connected to TransFollow. On French territory, it is now possible to exchange consignment notes in a transparent and secure manner between shippers, receivers, and carriers… and this regardless of the operational scenario, from the simplest to the most complicated, which could generate, among other things, groupage, break of load, or chartering… Our ambition with TransFollow is to unite the supply chain to enable the digitization of transport documents. This new partnership with the Sinari Group is therefore a big step forward in achieving this goal! “.
Hans Lip, COO of TransFollow, also commented on the historic collaboration: “This is definitely a big step forward for e-CMR adoption! We are very happy with this partnership with the Sinari Group. The major and defining role that the Sinari Group plays in France and the Benelux means that more and more French logistics companies will be able to take advantage of the advantages of e-CMR and, in time, switch from working paper to electronic working mode. Together we unite supply chains! “.
