ONBOARD LOGISTICS PARTNERS WITH RAFT TO PIONEER NEW LEVELS OF WAREHOUSE AUTOMATION WITH AI


OnBoard Logistics is enabled by Raft to pre-check and process cargo faster, saving time, money, and significantly enhancing its warehousing capabilities

Miami, US, Thursday 17th August 2023: US-based freight forwarder OnBoard Logistics has partnered with intelligent logistics platform Raft to successfully optimize warehousing operations and redefine the way cargo is received and processed.

OnBoard Logistics now boasts a fully automated warehouse pre-check process, utilizing Raft’s platform to optimize the receipt and processing of cargo before its physical arrival, streamlining operations and eliminating potentially costly mistakes.

Since implementation, which was completed within a two-week period, OnBoard Logistics has achieved a capacity lift of over three times its previous capabilities, and has eliminated human errors in its warehousing processes.

“Our goal has always been to optimize our services and provide unparalleled quality to our clients,” said Rodrigo Sosa Quiroga, Co-founder and VP, OnBoard Logistics.

“We recognized the need for innovation in our industry, especially in streamlining warehouse operations. With Raft’s expertise, we have been able to automate and optimize our processes, delivering faster and more accurate results.”

OnBoard Logistics has recently embarked upon an aggressive digitalization strategy, investing heavily in its technological infrastructure to significantly enhance its warehousing capabilities.

“OnBoard Logistics’ forward-thinking approach and commitment to leveraging technology to optimize operations is truly commendable,” said Lionel van der Walt, Chief Growth Officer, Raft.

“We are confident that our partnership will unlock new opportunities for OnBoard Logistics as they continue to expand,” he said.

OnBoard Logistics’ adoption of Raft is part of a larger initiative known as the Digital Warehouse Project, aimed at transforming the company’s operations to meet the evolving needs of the market.

The integration of handheld scanners and artificial intelligence capabilities, combined with the existing software infrastructure, has further solidified OnBoard Logistics’ competitive edge.

“In an industry where creativity and differentiation are often limited, optimization is the key to success,” added Sosa Quiroga.

“By incorporating Raft’s innovative solutions, we are able to offer a level of service that is unrivalled in the market. Our ability to pre-check and process cargo faster ensures our clients receive exceptional service, save time and money, and gain a competitive advantage in their own operations.”

Having experienced significant growth in recent years, OnBoard Logistics intends to continue investment into cutting-edge technologies as it expands its reach into new markets, further facilitating the digital transformation of the industry.
