Sixfold appointed real-time visibility provider to STI Freight Management

Sixfold and STI Freight Management (STI) have announced a partnership that will support STI's European network to become more digitised.
This will provide customers with real-time information on shipments and delivery times across the EU.
"We have reached another milestone on our way to becoming a digital freight forwarder. After conducting an in-depth assessment including pilots with various vendors over the past months, we are convinced that Sixfold, with their best-in-class carrier onboarding, ETA, and AI capabilities, is best equipped to help us on our journey to go digital," said Sidney Podday, market technology manager at STI.
"Full visibility of their shipments has been a key request of our customers for some time and the supply chain disruptions triggered by COVID-19 have underlined this importance now more than ever.
Wolfgang Wörner, Sixfold's CEO, added: "We are excited to support STI on its journey to becoming a digital freight forwarder. In today's transport market, having predictive visibility at any given point in time is important for logistics service providers not only to better serve their customers, but also to enable them to optimize their own transport planning and operations.
"STI is an early-mover in the LSP market, enabling it to reap the benefits from digitisation long before others have realised that this is where the market is going."
STI Freight Management is one of Europe's leading providers of temperature-controlled transport solutions that are tailored to the needs of its clients. Its vast network is strategically located in nine countries.
Established in Germany in 1983, STI employs over 260 people at 13 locations and is a subsidiary of HAVI Global Logistics. Some of STI's biggest customers include well known QSR Chains, Food and Pharma producers as well as leading Cruise Line Operators.
Sixfold is the real-time visibility platform for road freight. Serving STI is one of the latest steps of Sixfold to expand its presence in the logistics service provider (LSP) market.
At the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Sixfold showcased its leading network by offering a cross-border map enabling supply chain professionals to have real-time information on delays being experienced by carriers at borders. The map became a standard for European transits.
