Pros: The platform is very useful and dynamic. It provides a better way to work and so we can organize the shipments since the moment we ask for the booking. I also liked the platform communication with the shipping companies system via EDI, because If something is changed by the carrier in the booking, the BuyCo automatically update all the information on the platform.

Cons: Few types of equipments are not available in the platform. There are few restrictions for Open Top containers and IMO cargo containers.

Pros: In this software, the better is the facility to use it ; all is clear, it's easy to find an information, if the shipping company put it

Cons: It's a shame that it's obligatory to return on all the shipments ; it would be better to have possibility to return on the last shipment and not on the complete list

Overall: I had the possibility to inform the customers for all delay on their shipments, when the shipping company do not inform him via BUYCO

Pros: The possibility to create dossiers on line where players enter and exit from the loop.

Cons: Originally, it has been minded for forwarders and not for shippers, but they are bettering.

Overall: One platform for the whole group

More visibility on shipments

Pros: Allow user have clear picture of the order/shipment processing, organize docs., and easy to trace shipment. Reduce workload and save time to send email with docs.

Cons: When click on shipments marked as new shipment, it will be right away moved to dashboard where you have all the shipments. So it's not easy to find the shipment you just click, sometimes, you don't even remember the reference no., so you have to spend a lot of time searching it in the dashboard. Better to have new function to allow user to manually move shipment to dashboard, after all info./docs. are read/download.

Overall: It's a good system that allow user to manage and trace shipments, beyond restrictions in time and national region. But still need some improvement to make it more user-friendly.

Pros: We used to receive the shipping documents via email from the HQ but I find easier to find the documents / data afterwards instead of searching through many emails.

Cons: Not least but there are few points I still do not understand about the functions in this system because we are doing the testing for now so I would like to ask the Customer Service at HQ when I have questions. Regarding the vessel schedules, sometimes there seems to be discrepancies between the data and information we have receive from shipping company (local office) so we tend to rely on the information which we checked by ourselves.

Basically good

Pros: 1) can have a quick look to see all shipments to our countries

2) can download shipping docs directly

3) can learn the most updated vessel ETA status

Cons: The icon shows "1" of informing new docs available under "Shipment with New Docs". The whole row will be gone after my click. It would be nicer if the whole row remains without "1" pop-up, we then can come back to download it. From time to time we will be interrupted during the check of BUYCO. This would be a big help, no need to check one by one under "New Shipment" and find out which one is missed.

Overall: Basically it's good and user-friendly. :-)

Pros: Organization, very dynamic, and the information is very visual and of fast access when you access the platform. Another positive point is the traceability of each process to know the actual situation.

Cons: Platform still do not present the possibility to do road and air shipments.

Overall: I am having a very great experience with the platform. In my day by day it helps me a lot with the organization of all processes under my responsibility, besides allowing to update several documents which also helps to reduce the amount of emails exchanged with costumers. The platform is very stable and transmits robustness.

Pros: I can have a follow up of a shipment from booking inception to invoice generation and still get the docs a while after the shipment was delivered.

Cons: it doesn't reference vessel/shipment name

Overall: I can easily print my invoices directly from the site, unfortunately it's just for one region.
