Europa Worldwide launches new IT system
Europa Worldwide Group has launched Leonardo, its new £1.7m bespoke IT system, across its road freight operations. Richard Litchfield, IT Director, said: “It is rare for a logistics business to move from outsourced software, and invest and employ a dedicated team of IT developers and designers to build a bespoke IT system on this scale from the ground up.”
LeoRoad includes real time operation monitoring of shipments, discrepancy management, workflow management, and proactive customer and partner daily reporting. The system is fully integrated with internal CCTV, Masternaut truck and trailer tracking solutions and Europa’s national telephone system.
The next phase of Leonardo, called LeoFinance, is due to launch in 2017. The project will overhaul the company’s finance systems and will be fully integrated with LeoRoad.
