Robotic Process Automation (RPA)

Robotic Process Automation technology was introduced to our logistics operations in 2021 under the consultation of Deloitte of Singapore and Malaysia. Under the first phase of the project, all inward and outward documentation and reporting processes at our Container Freight Stations have been automated with RPA bringing immeasurable efficiencies and transparency to the operations. The automation of all repetitive manual data entry functions has improved the accuracy of documentation and data entry processes across Container Freight Station operations largely benefiting the organizational and customer triple bottom lines.
