Newly enhanced web-based management solution allows customers total control over their import and export shipment processes

The Rhenus Group, a leading global logistics service provider, has enhanced and released its fourth generation of Fênix, Rhenus Brazil’s Transportation Management System (TMS). The web-based integrated solution is designed to meet shippers’ needs for air and ocean freight services and offers simplified features that optimize the day-to-day import and export operations. The system maximizes clients’ personnel resources and ensures the company’s competitiveness of their pricing in the market.

“Fênix is an exclusive tool for Rhenus Brazil customers. The idea behind our TMS system is to give customers full visibility and traceability throughout the entire shipping process, all the way down to the item level,” said Paul Schabbel, managing director of Rhenus Brazil. “This cloud-based solution will allow customers to focus on their own operation and plan their supply chain with accuracy based on real time information provided by Fênix.”
