 “2020 will be the year that logistics has its digital transformation” predicts DG International’s CEO Ryan Lucas

 ExCeL, London, 27 November 2019: Specialist freight forwarder DG International is unpacking its thoughts on digital transformation and sharing how the company is supporting online retailers in accessing broader markets at this year’s White Label Expo.

Ryan Lucas, chief executive officer at DG International, says: “In 2020, online retailers need to look for partners who are invested in a smart supply chain, and reap the rewards of their investment. With Brexit looming, it is critical that retailers use these partners to explore emerging markets outside of the EU, as well as grow existing customer bases, to compensate for potential cost increases.”

To support customers looking to expand worldwide, in October 2019 DG International partnered with parcel carrier Yodel to offer a streamlined global outbound service to UK retailers. Using DG International’s global expertise and resources, Yodel can now ship freight cross-border, with complete end-to-end tracking to ensure high levels of customer service are consistent throughout the shipment.

Lucas continues: “The coming 12 months will be crucial for retailers not wanting to be left behind as competitors continue their digital transformation. At DG International, we’ve put in the time and resources, and online retailers are benefitting from our clear and agile strategy and industry partnerships that allow them to respond to the global opportunities a wholly digital environment creates.”

DG International has initiated the digital transformation movement with the upcoming launch of Horizon, available from early 2020. Horizon is a single-platform cloud-based solution that brings efficiency, intelligence and connectivity to the supply chain. The platform is set to solve many digital supply chain problems, providing improved margins, world-class security and operational excellence.

At White Label Expo, the DG international team is on hand on booth S300 to discuss the drivers behind digital transformation and demonstrate how technology is improving efficiencies and boosting revenues.
