A GLOBAL SOFTWARE APPLICATION THAT HELPS PROJECTS TAKE OFF
The ability to offer this portfolio of services on a worldwide scale, and then deliver on those promises, can only be achieved if our Bertling team is supported by effective information and freight management systems that are robust, reliable, and accessible from anywhere. To meet this need Bertling founded its own IT company, BESITEC, and developed its own Transport Management System: BLU. This system is accessible globally across a secure Bertling VPN network and has the capability to exchange information between client and service provider systems, thus delivering a complete and comprehensive freight and transport management solution.
From this system, it is possible for the Bertling project teams to manage cargo down to PO item level, track and trace cargo, measure actual logistics spend against budget, provide an auditable history of every shipment and related documentation and monitor the supply chain performance using flexible KPI reports.
In summary, it is through the competence and commitment of our staff and the reliability and effectiveness of our management systems that Bertling is able to plan, manage and deliver global projects to the levels of performance and visibility that today's clients expect and regulate authorities demand.
