Tigers has launched SmartHub:Connect, the world’s first combined freight, e-commerce and logistics portal, a cloud-based platform providing visibility across the supply chain.
The platform delivers customisable solutions including its virtual warehouse, which will support customers post-Brexit by allowing them to split stock over two distribution centres and routing orders to the correct hub for fulfilment.
Tigers is also testing a live quote engine facility, giving customers access to instant quotes between its locations globally.
Tigers chief executive officer, Andrew Jillings says: “Our platform is unique because it delivers glass pipeline visibility of both your global transportation and e-commerce fulfilment from factory to shop floor.
“We are a global logistics and transport company with a history of delivering innovative supply chain and enterprise solutions, and our focus from the outset has been on technology, particularly on disruptive technologies.”
SmartHub:Connect is scalable and secure, giving customers access to e-commerce services and systems such as Amazon, WooCommerce, the Tigers eShop, and top retailers in the US, Europe and Australia.
Its Rejected Orders Portal allows customers to manage website orders and e-requests using validation rules.
Tigers is implementing and testing a live quote engine developed by Doozee, allowing customers to access to live quotes between all Tigers locations globally, and to customise the service they receive through SmartHub:Connect.
Jillings: “The tech-savvy consumer is ever-more demanding, and with the accelerated digitisation and democratisation of information we must be in a position to support our customers, so that they can deliver for the consumer, and grow and develop into new markets.”
