Global Logistics System (HK) Company Limited (GLS Hong Kong) announced the appointment of Electronic Freight Data Interchange Pvt. Ltd. (EFDI) to distribute and support its Cargo Community platform EzyCargoTM in India.

EFDI will provide sales and marketing functions to promote EzyCargoTM subscriptions to connect freight forwarders with multiple airlines for digital cargo data exchange.  A local service desk will be setup to provide sales and support services in the market.  EFDI will also support certain  local administration tasks on behalf of GLS Hong Kong.

Ezycargo™, a Cloud based application and the leading product in the GLS Hong Kong portfolio, enables Forwarders for e-Booking,  electronic Air Waybill data exchange, and the track & trace of consignment status over the Internet or via host-to-host connections. There are currently close to 1,000 Ezycargo™ subscribers in India.

‘We are very pleased to partner with EFDI to market EzyCargoTM in India, and to provide local support to our subscribers.  We expect to see subscription to increase,” said Mr. Tony Sham, the CEO  of GLS Hong Kong.  “Forwarders can enjoy the benefits of our single gateway for data exchanges with multiple carriers.  New features will also be added to support forwarder needs and local requirements.”

Madhav Kulshreshtha, the Managing Director of EFDI stated: “We recognise the vast potential for electronic messaging and digitisation that a platform such as Ezycargo™ offers. With our domain expertise and local knowledge, it would be a winning combination for the industry, given that the Indian Government under the able leadership of our Prime Minister is also pressing for digitisation.”
