Supply chain

Freight Station is a cloud-based platform designed for importers, exporters, freight forwarding companies, and customs agents. The aim of the business is to digitalise work processes while reducing costs and wasted time for participating companies. Through extensive research, the company identified many shortcomings in the way the industry works, such as an overreliance on paper-based systems and a lack of real-time confirmation for deliveries. Proof of delivery and tracking are two of the biggest challenges experienced by stakeholders. Operations around customs declarations are frequently inefficient and solely transaction-based.

Cloud-based platform

Freight Station’s innovation and unique selling point is that no other platform in the world offers a suite of customs solutions and a suite of transport solutions to stakeholders on the same cloud-based platform. They are the only company offering customers a SaaS-based model that focuses on service as well as transaction functionality.

SaaS model developed

“The work being delivered by the Nimbus Technology Gateway is crucial to the technical roadmap outlined for our commercial viability. It has allowed us to build a SaaS model around customs declarations procedures rather than the transaction-based models that competitors use. Nimbus have been instrumental in guiding this process and Freight Station is delighted to continue with this fruitful partnership.”

The Freight Station & Nimbus partnership

Freight Station approached the Nimbus Technology Gateway to implement a software platform to collect, store, and visualise data shared between stakeholders. The platform needed to be flexible to accommodate future enhancements, such as the impact of Brexit on import and export customs.

Development is currently underway to integrate this platform directly to the Irish Revenue Online Service (ROS) platform, thereby allowing a seamless transition from a paper-based industry to a digital one.
