Bolloré Logistics Relies on Axway 5 Suite for Strategic Business Growth

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.

Using Axway MFT, a secure multi-platform solution, Bolloré Logistics transformed its network file transfer strategy into an infrastructure pillar, including Axway 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 customer invoicing.

“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.
