Comprehensive file movement and integration technology that up-levels global logistics capabilities
The worldwide shipping industry contributes USD $400 billion annually – equivalent to 5% of the global economy. These numbers are impressive, yet market turbulence subjects merchant shipping enterprises to the rough seas of extreme demand fluctuation and the tempest of volatile financial risk. Complicating matters further are the well-established customs regulations, and the rapidly increasing number of nation-centric digital data privacy laws. Shippers must navigate a new reality of regulatory complexity in which technological sophistication is as necessary to business success as the movement of goods. Cleo provides robust data integration solutions to shippers and ports that facilitate the seamless movement of logistical data necessary to doing business in multinational regulatory environments.
