Global ocean and air forwarding leader will expand adoption of BluJay’s Transportation Management platform and integrated solutions to enhance system performance

BluJay Solutions has announced a new multi-year agreement with Damco to continue use of its Transportation Management for Forwarders software platform, moving from on-premise to the cloud. A BluJay customer since 2011, Damco has been one of the world’s leading providers of freight forwarding services for more than 100 years, helping customers manage their cargo.

Damco is extending its partnership with BluJay to increase efficiency, digitise its customer interactions, and better position its business for the future. With file management excellence as a main business objective, Damco sees the opportunity to improve productivity and profitability with BluJay. Damco’s customers will benefit from increased speed and functionality to improve the experience for bookings, submitting documents, and more. Damco is currently running BluJay’s Transportation Management on premise and looks forward to upgrading to the cloud, along with future plans to add integrated solutions to best serve their customers.

“We value the history of our partnership with BluJay. Damco has appreciated working with BluJay’s experts for so many years, and they will take us from today to tomorrow to support our business objectives,” said Martin Ring, Global Chief Operations Officer at Damco.

Ring adds that the long-standing relationship, along with commitment from BluJay to take Damco to the next level played a major role in choosing BluJay. “We’ve seen the capabilities added in the past few years – the game has really been upped, and it’s critical in our industry to keep moving forward with technology to stay ahead. Damco will take advantage of the continually enhanced functionality available from BluJay to run our business as efficiently as possible.”

Damco will better leverage capabilities of the BluJay platform, namely, bringing invoicing, vendor payments, and master data into Transportation Management for Forwarders (TMFF).

“BluJay is delighted to continue our partnership with Damco. This relationship evolution is truly indicative of the value customers realise with greater solution adoption over time, supported by people who are committed to their success,” said Chris Timmer, Chief Revenue Officer for BluJay
