Looking for strategic support in a period of strong business growth,
Bolloré Logistics, one of the top five transport and logistic
organizations in Europe, selected Axway
(NYSE Euronext:AXW.PA), a market leader in governing the flow of data,
to manage, control and secure the substantial increase in data exchange
and new customer protocols. The Axway
Managed File Transfer (MFT) solution, a part of the Axway
5 Suite, offers Bolloré Logistics the foundation for a comprehensive
MFT governance strategy with a reliable and flexible solution enabling
secure, auditable and easy to manage data exchange across multiple sites.
With 11,000 employees across 99 countries and 600 offices, Bolloré
Logistics produces more than 30,000 internal and external messages on a
daily basis. Having its customers, partners and employees spread out
geographically, the company is operating in a very heterogeneous
environment. Bolloré Logistics’ business relies on interoperability
between systems and data transfers. When interacting with employees and
customers, it is crucial that Bolloré Logistics’ data transfer files
arrive at their destination as scheduled, to ensure that business
processes relating to everything from human resources and payroll, to
customer facing shipment statuses, are not negatively impacted.
MFT, a secure multi-platform solution, Bolloré Logistics transformed
its network file transfer strategy into an infrastructure pillar,
Sentinel for data flow analytics and real-time visibility, and Axway Gateway
for efficiency and control across the infrastructure.
Bolloré Logistics depends on the Axway 5 Suite to provide
interoperability between its IT systems and the best possible service
for its customers. Its Transport Management System, Warehouse Management
System and Track and Trace System are all interfaced to Axway MFT.
With a rapidly growing customer base, Bolloré Logistics needed to be
able to quickly adapt to its customers’ different protocols. The Axway
MFT solution manages data transport for interactive enterprise
application integration. If a customer automatically issues invoices
upon delivery of a product, the delivery notice will instantly trigger
“Since 2012 we have been managing 9.5 million data transfers a year. If
files do not arrive at their destinations on time, either a storage
order or warehouse delivery, there could be a negative impact on our
business. A lot of critical data flows through our business from
scheduling delivery to processing payment, but we know we can count on
Axway 5 Suite to get the job done,” said Emeric de Saint Roman,
Technical Skill Unit Director at Bolloré Logistics.
“The integration between systems and protocols and the reliability of
data transfers are essential for any business, but especially crucial
when managing logistics for such a huge number of customers across many
different countries. Bolloré has selected Axway solutions to act as its
data air traffic controller, managing data transfer and maintaining
business efficiency in this heavy growth period,” said Robert Meyer, VP
Solutions, Vertical Marketing and Management at Axway.

Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer.
Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
