Software selection key to start-up’s early success
IES Ltd. announced the implementation of IES international trade operations and warehouse software at SHIPEX.
IES is proud to announce that Houston-based start-up SHIPEX LLC selected IES’ integrated logistics software to manage their import/export operations and warehouse services.
SHIPEX will focus on shipping cars and trucks as well as heavy machinery, oil and water equipment, and general merchandise. The start-up’s first mission was to find suitable transportation and warehouse management systems. After the evaluation process was complete, IES walked away with the ink. Said Fadi Elkhodiry, owner of SHIPEX, ‘While I was testing logistics software I found IES’ software had more features and a better understanding of the freight forwarder’s/NVOCC’s needs. Their solution is nearly custom designed for my corporation. IES software is a masterpiece in this industry and the more I use the software the more it impresses me.’ Mr. Elkhodiry brings his years of experience in the industry to SHIPEX and will provide strategic and operational direction to their transportation services.
Studies have shown how one organizes a start-up company often proves most important in determining success. The combination of SHIPEX’s management savvy and attention to service with the workflow efficiencies of their IES software, they anticipate high levels of internal and external satisfaction for their new business. ‘Getting a fully integrated system up and running quickly will provide a significant boost to our organization and play a major role in our success. We will have the ability to track cargo at any given instant and make profit and cash flow projections on a real-time basis in no time, simply by using the information already entered into the system. With a large warehouse facility it is essential for us to have complete visibility of all receiving, put-away, assembly and load operations. The integration of inventory and financials means that we know exactly where we are.’
Another essential factor in new business success is smoothly sailing the regulatory waters. Accurate documentation requirements are entrenched throughout the shipment cycle. Using IES software, rigorous regulations will be met with ease.
