EFL Global Takes off With Slync for Air Freight Pricing Control
DALLAS, TX — July 11, 2023 — Slync today announced that EFL Global has successfully deployed an advanced solution to support the air freight booking and quotation processes across all global operating regions. Slync’s Logistics Orchestration® Platform replaces email and spreadsheets with a cloud-based, centralized pricing hub that establishes automated process control, supporting 100% of air freight volume at EFL Global.
EFL Global is a leading supply chain and logistics solutions provider that offers an extensive global service menu, including transportation, warehousing and distribution, customs brokerage and compliance, and more. With over 3,000 employees across 39 countries worldwide, EFL Global is committed to simplifying logistics for businesses, handling more than 20 million shipments with the support of flexible, transparent, and future-ready solutions.
“Slync’s ability to digitize and standardize unstructured spreadsheet pricing data has transformed an inefficient process into a competitive advantage.”
“We are constantly innovating to drive process efficiency and customer value,” said Brian Catron, Global Chief Information Officer at EFL Global. “Slync’s ability to digitize and standardize unstructured spreadsheet pricing data has transformed an inefficient process into a competitive advantage. We are on a journey with Slync that empowers us to increase market share, even during the current challenging market conditions.”
“EFL Global is one of the most innovative logistics providers in the world which is why they have experienced such tremendous growth,” said John Urban, Chairman and CEO of Slync. “By using the Slync platform to reimagine how air freight pricing and booking is executed, EFL now has a perfect, first-of-its-kind solution where an advanced AI-enabled platform is helping drive data standards and process control to do away with complex manual processes.”
With Slync, all origin air freight booking requests are loaded, standardized and centralized in a single cloud application. The Logistics Orchestration® Platform automatically enforces data standards and artificial intelligence augments bookings with compliant content, such as location codes and other key master data standardized in their core TMS. Global teams collaborate on the bookings until they are rated, approved and executed. All activities are captured, and key information is made accessible to other stakeholders such as Operations, Finance, and Sales via configurable dashboards and online reports.
The technology platform went live in early 2023 and supports all EFL Global air freight countries and is expected to exceed 100,000 annualized bookings. Future expansions will likely include full integration to air freight TMS, auto rating, and enhanced transactional intelligence dashboards.
Slync is on a mission to dramatically simplify the way the business of logistics is conducted. The plethora of systems, data formats, partners, lack of standards, and different documentation results in unacceptable gaps in information and a lack of supply chain control. Global enterprises and LSPs are using Slync to drive massive increases in productivity while simultaneously improving visibility, and gaining better control of inventory in transit for operational teams and customers.
