The company

Flexible International Freight Forwarder

Being an international freight forwarder, SHIPEX is a versatile transport service provider that adapts to the individual needs of its customers. Shipex started 40 years ago, organizing international transport for the recycling industry. Nowadays, they handle all sorts of cargoes, such as foodstuffs, hygienic products, technical fibers, flax, animal feed and project cargoes.

The challenge

Outdated logistics software needed to be replaced

"We have been using custom made software from Navitrans since 2009. However, as the software is in high need to be replaced after thirteen years, we have spent the past two years looking for a replacement and considering a large variety of vendors. We even did so outside of the boarders of the European Union (e.g. USA and India).”  

The solution

Central Navitrans solution in the cloud

Navitrans proposed a solution based upon the universal “Business Central” platform which matches our needs and requirements from a logistics point of view perfectly. Especially the Forwarding Management, CRM & Finance Management modules are expected to be of high value to Shipex. 

The result

Reliable local partner for the FMS of the future.

Navitrans is a strong local player with high ambitions in an international context. So is Shipex. Therefore, it is important to us that we are supported locally by a partner who understands our business and is aware of the latest technological trends. We are keen on increasing operational excellence both internally and towards our clients. The already existing relationship we have with Navitrans eventually gave us the confidence to trust upon their services and knowledge once again.
