Tigers Logistics to Expand Services with New Quote-generating Startup

Tigers has announced that they will be a launch customer for a new instant freight rate quote engine developed by tech start up Doozee.

The new tool will be available to Tigers’ extensive international agent network and will be hosted on the Tigers SmartHub:Connect portal following the release of future versions of Doozee. Doozee will then allow customers to access live quotes between all Tigers locations globally, and to customize the service they receive through SmartHub:Connect.

“This is a significant step in the digitization process for Tigers,” said Mark Gatenby, Chief Information Officer, Tigers. “Doozee is a free of charge, agnostic ‘plug-in and play’ for everybody, and it is unique because it allows for community and collaboration between a company and its agents.”

The current version of the Doozee Cloud-based engine will enable Tigers agents to send customers full quotes in seconds via email or as an online link, with customers able to respond with the click of a button. In the future, Tigers’ customers will be able to see instant quotes on SmartHub:Connect by inputting details of their consignment and route on their dashboard.

USA-based start-up Doozee will further develop the engine’s functionality to include links to postal operators, supporting Tigers’ e-commerce customers. Doozee was founded by tech pioneer Dr. Scott Deerwester who co-invented Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA) technology, which has become a commonly used tool in search engine optimization (SEO).

“Tigers is a forward-thinking global company, and, as a technologist, I share their commitment to embracing digitization, which makes SmartHub:Connect the perfect platform to launch Doozee,” said Dr. Deerwester. “Doozee has been designed in a way that is appropriately transparent and the business rules are clear, so that it is easy to use.”

Doozee is available in 12 different languages and contains an algorithm for ranking freight forwarders by transit times, reliability, price, and online ratings.

One of the world’s biggest logistics companies, Kuwait headquartered Agility, recently announced a major new investment of $100 million over three years to develop and launch Shipa.com. The new digital platform will allow businesses, entrepreneurs and consumers to manage their freight, e-commerce, and urban deliveries online. Chairwoman for Agility, Henadi Al-Saleh said, “Shipa.com makes life easier through technology, whether you are a small business running your supply chain with a few clicks, or a consumer getting your shopping delivered with a few taps on your phone, Shipa.com makes logistics convenient, jargon-free, trackable, accountable and accessible.” Shipa.com will provide the following services: Shipa Freight that will allow small businesses to get instant and transparent freight quotes along with the ability to book, pay and track ocean and air shipments around the world on any mobile or another digital device. Shipa E-commerce enables online merchant’s access to the world’s most complex and fastest growing e-commerce networks. The service will integrate freight, fulfilment, delivery and returns solutions throughout the Arabian Gulf, along with additional reach in Africa and Europe planned for the future. Shipa Delivery will provide businesses and consumers with on-demand same-day, next-day or cross-border delivery across the whole region of Arabian Gulf. Al-Saleh added, “Logistics is the backbone of commerce. But it’s complex, and that complexity is disproportionately difficult for small businesses to navigate. Small businesses often lack access to the logistics resources, tools and solutions that larger businesses have,” “No wonder then, that we interviewed 800 small and medium-sized businesses around the world, we found that 78% wanted to see their logistics move online. Shipa helps close that gap, empowering small businesses to take advantage of the opportunities being created by the global digital economy.” Considered by Al-Saleh as the innovation arm of Agility, Shipa.com will hasten the introduction of technology, development of new digital products. Al-Saleh concluded, “Shipa.com is the marriage of Agility’s logistics expertise and resources and the digital-first capabilities of the Shipa platform. It offers enormous value for our customers and brings new value to our company.”
