Lichfield company says project will “revolutionise” UK logistics industry

A Lichfield company has completed a major project which it says will “revolutionise” the UK logistics industry.

Cocoonfxmedia Ltd spent 15 months creating a smart portal for global freight forwarding specialist, IFE Global Logistics, which offers real-time tracking of vessels and individual containers in a UK industry first.

It means companies which need to import and export goods can now get more visibility and control over their shipments than ever before – resulting in savings in both time and money.

Cocoonfxmedia Ltd’s managing partner James Blackman said: “We have a unique understanding of how freight forwarding and large-scale logistics works – and the technological and digital developments needed to modernise the sector.

“We were tasked with developing a solution from the ground up that would give the industry a functionality it had never experienced before.

“The brief was to create an online portal to enable IFE Global customers to track their shipments, using data from the various systems they use to manage their day to day business.

“We’re delighted with the outcome as the portal will enable IFE Global Logistics to offer their customers a hugely enhanced digital experience that will make the process of managing their imports and exports easier than ever, while saving them significant time and money.”

Jamie Cramer, managing director of IFE Global Logistics, said: “Our customers have said our Smart Logistics System is light years ahead of other freight forwarders/logistics providers.

“Cocoonfxmedia have smashed it out of the park with the delivery and have demonstrated flexibility and creativity to overcome some incredibly complex problems.

“We at IFE look forward to working with James and the team to continue developing the system.”

    Perhaps a solution to the border arrangement in Ireland? Some provision has to be found when we leave the EU. It might equally suffice for Scotland at a later date. Well done to this company. If you have an innovative development don’t sell it off cheap. The country has always been great at invention but poor in marketing them.

    As an afterthought, perhaps you could contact our local MP to have consultation with the Trade and Industry Secretary. The Conservatives are desperate for a digital solution to the Back Stop situation. This sounds too good an opportunity for both your company and the country to miss.
