DHL introduces digital freight platform
DHL Freight has introduced the CILLOX digital freight platform, which it describes as “a virtual marketplace for enterprises with transportation needs”. CILLOX has been designed to help companies to match their full truck load, part truck load and less than truck load offerings with transport providers’ capacities and find the appropriate provider according to their needs.
According to DHL, CILLOX will give shippers end-to-end (E2E) control of their shipment processes within a single platform, while transport providers will have guaranteed fast payment with streamlined invoicing and payment processes.
“Both companies and carriers benefit from this new business model,” said Amadou Diallo, CEO DHL Freight. “With CILLOX, DHL offers a solution to promote the digitalization of the logistics industry and disrupt the traditional road freight business. The launch of the platform is a result of our strategy 2020 and promotes further growth due to its innovative and agile business model.”
DHL has run pilot tests with some user and the platform is scheduled to be fully operational for all market participants as of January.
