(AAI), a leading logistics and freight-forwarding firm in the Philippines and its new Express Courier business unit: Black Arrow Express, today announced that it will implement Ramco Systems’ Logistics Software, to streamline its domestic and international freight forwarding operations.

Ramco, a leading enterprise software provider on Cloud, mobiles and tablets, will roll out its Cloud-based integrated ERP solution for Logistics Service Providers across AAI’s five entities in and around the Philippines. The system will enable AAI to manage its Warehouse & Transportation, Freight Forwarding, Fleet Planning, Courier Management, and Facility Management integrated with Finance and HR all from a single unified system.

An exclusive agent of the World Air Cargo Organisation, as well as an International Air Transport Association agent for major carriers, AAI is the first logistics and freight-forwarding firm to be accorded the Philippine Quality Award, which is the highest national recognition for performance excellence that a Philippine company can receive.

Arnold Brizuela, President, AAI Worldwide Logistics Inc., and Allan Brizuela, President, Black Arrow Express said, “To achieve our goal of becoming the No.1 logistics company in Philippines, there certainly was a dire need of an innovative and integrated technology that could help us yield efficient results. Ramco’s fully integrated Logistics offering suited our business needs perfectly. The solution will enable us to effectively plan and organize vast logistic shipments throughout the Philippines and beyond.”

Virender Aggarwal, CEO, Ramco Systems said, “We are glad to announce AAI, a leading name in Logistics industry, as our customer. After a rigorous evaluation of both global and local vendors, AAI decided to choose Ramco ERP. We are confident this partnership will further strengthen our position as a leading Logistics software provider, globally."

“The logistics industry is at a crossroads, as traditional players face stiff competition from a “smarter” Uberised world. The need to optimise operations, arrest revenue wastage, and gain visibility is driving organisations to adapt latest technology. Our integrated suite of offering on Cloud with in-built mobility, is gaining favour as it addresses the complete value chain of a Logistics Service Provider,” added Aggarwal.

Allan Brizuela, Black Arrow Express looks at the Uberisation and Grabbing as an opportunity. “Technologically-integrated companies such as ourselves in partnership with Ramco, could only maximise the added retail booking opportunities that platform providers present. While booking and grabbing couriers are now literally within the hands of the customers, Black Arrow and Ramco make it possible for these customers to gain access to our assets, and even an entire universe of logistics solutions.”
