Tags: Supply Chain, Trucking
To help India’s government reach its goal of reducing logistics costs from 14% of the GDP to less than 9% by 2022, integrated container logistics company Maersk is partnering with BlackBuck, India’s largest online trucking marketplace. BlackBuck will own and operate a new containerized trucking platform, which Maersk will support by developing industry-specific solutions.
The neutral platform will be open to the entire industry and is designed to empower sustainable growth and efficiency by reducing touchpoints in the supply chain. The companies expect the online marketplace to improve the customer experience, match demand with supply, and provide service delivery consistency through real-time visibility and control.
