USYNCRO AND TRANSFOLLOW JOIN FORCES TO BOOST THE DIGITIZATION OF INTERNATIONAL TRANSPORT
Madrid, November 24, 2021 – Usyncro has signed an agreement with TransFollow to offer aggregated services from both platforms and boost the digitalization of transport. With this union, companies with international operations will be able to simultaneously carry out the digital management of customs procedures and the issuance and use of the e-CMR as an integrated transport document. As a first step associated with this agreement, Usyncro and TransFollow will carry out a Proof of Concept on real trips, aimed at digitally gathering all the documentation linked to the transport of goods between countries and detecting incidents during the process of generating customs documentation.
The initiative is aimed at a pre-selected group of transport companies / freight forwarders / exporters who regularly face such casuistry. The participating companies will have access to the combined functionalities of both platforms at no cost and with the sole commitment to identify and propose as many use cases as possible In this way, they will ensure that the new platform resulting from Usyncro and TransFollow will be enriched by the possible combination of events and use cases.
Deployment will begin between the end of 2021 and the beginning of 2022. The companies adhering to this agreement, will have Usyncro’s blockchain solution and the TransFollow platform’s functions: creation, issuance, sharing, signing and archiving of international freight documents (e-CMRs). They will be able to centrally access the documents generated, which will have visibility for all the actors involved in the shipment. Such documentation will be traceable, secure and validated by the users themselves thanks to blockchain technology, which will bring transparency and securitization to all the documentation generated.
“We have found in Usyncro the perfect complement to our services and a long-standing partner in our mission to generalize the use of e-CMR in Europe, as it assures us the gateway not only to the integrated digital management of customs procedures, but also to the rest of its portfolio of services, such as financing, insurance contracting, or the automation and optimization of tasks through artificial intelligence,” says Hans Lip, COO of TransFollow-Viaservice. “The aim of this alliance is to be able to provide the service portfolio of both companies, in any country, to any company profile and in any circumstances of use. In TransFollow we have found the best partner to carry it out. Both companies agree on the strategic need to simplify the processes of carriers and to offer them the tools to support their digitization”, says Cristina Martín Lorenzo, CEO of Usyncro.
