Twill launches in Brazil to simplify logistics

Digital logistics platform to provide global advantage to local companies

The Hague, NL – 20 March 2019 – Maersk is going digital in Brazil and launching Twill to simplify logistics in the world’s ninth largest economy and help boost competitiveness.

Twill, a digital logistics provider with a global mission to remove the complexity from handling international trade, is now providing Brazilian companies greater control of shipments, quotes and booking, transparency and tracking services, simplified paperwork and proactive customer care through its easy-to-use online platform. Twill will ultimately help level the playing field for Brazilian companies of varying sizes by providing end-to-end land-to-sea logistics services online.

The transportation and logistics industry is impacted daily by an overload of emails, phone calls and document-heavy processes, which can lead to huge delays in getting quotes, a lack of flexibility and transparency for customers in pricing, location data, and issue resolution as well as drive-up costs. Therefore, taking part in global trade is a complex situation for the companies whose primarily focus should be on their customers and are unable to spare resources to also be experts in shipping.

“Twill is a great fit for companies looking to overcome the complexity of doing trade in and outside of Brazil and we see a fantastic opportunity with small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), which either have a small number of people handling their logistics or do not necessarily have a logistics department at all but need to be competitive globally,” says Troels Stovring, CEO of Twill. “The potential that SMEs can bring, if these companies are able to overcome the global trade barriers and take part in the import and export scene is tremendous. They are the engine of growth for local economies and we need to ensure that our industry can facilitate this. Twill, like the name suggests, is like a tightly woven fabric that consolidates different strands of the supply chain together to make shipping simple. It is exciting time to be in Brazil especially looking at the Brazilian trade which is expected to grow faster in 2019 than the previous year.”

“By moving goods through Twill, SMEs, for example, will have access to our global platform and be able to move goods from one end to the other at their fingertips. This is a powerful tool and represents a global advantage to the way many SMEs currently do business,” says Fabio Britto, Sales Leader for Twill in Brazil. “The SME landscape in Brazil is of great economic importance for the country as it employs more than 56M people and is responsible for 20% of the GNP. With Twill we want to simplify the way companies in Brazil deal with global trade and enable them to take more space globally and further foster the economic growth of the country. In addition, with government plans to invest more in country’s infrastructure we look forward to being part in making Brazil more competitive on the global stage,” he adds.

Twill’s a digital, multi-carrier platform that enables customers to book their shipment online anytime and provides access to a world-class customer experience via a dedicated customer care team, based in Brazil, which is available 24/7.

International Women’s Day in logistics – Dare to be yourself!

By Trine Nielsen

Today is International Women’s Day and this year’s theme is #BalanceforBetter – celebrating women’s achievement and taking action for equality. The world of logistics and freight forwarding has its part to play in bringing about this change – not only is it an industry that has a lot to offer, it is also a global industry that enables women all over the world to join us. The industry is however still populated more by men than women, so our hope is that more woman will join us.

My time in logistics

A big part of building a more balanced world is about making opportunities available for all. One of the things I love most about logistics is how international it is. I have always wanted to explore the world and this is the reason I started my career as a trainee with Maersk at only 20 years old. I grew up in a small town in Denmark and studied languages, which ignited my passion for exploring the world, and the logistics industry – and Maersk gave me that opportunity.

Over my career so far I’ve had the privilege to live in three very different countries. I had a seven month spell working in Dubai and later spent two and a half years in Mumbai heading up a team of 35 in my first leadership role. I was only 25 when I moved to India and it was certainly a challenge – working in a new country, a different culture, and managing a team for the first time – but I still look at it as one of the best decisions I have made. It was fun and I grew so much as a result.

There is no doubt that I’ve worked hard for these opportunities and while I have faced my share of challenges, I choose not to feel hindered by my gender – I am proud of it and proud of being and thinking differently, because I believe it gives me an advantage. I recently joined Twill as the company’s Head of Sales, implementing strategy across our major markets, and I know I’m here because I’m the most qualified person for the job.

Logistics does have a legacy of being male-dominated and it is far from perfect, yes, but together we have a chance to lead on providing equal opportunities, ultimately building a more balanced world – and this doesn’t stop at the gender discussion.

 #BalanceforBetter

This year, International Women’s Day gives us the opportunity to celebrate the fantastic and inspiring women in our lives and to raise awareness around bias. The team here at Twill is one of the most diverse I’ve ever been in, with over 15 nationalities sitting around me at the office and 43% of our employees being women – and although I have only been here for a short time, I can already see how this makes Twill different – and in my opinion stronger than our competition. We challenge each other and there are many out of the box ideas.

I think one way we can push for more balance is to celebrate our differences and not be scared of them. We often hear the bad stories about how different we are – whether that’s about gender or other things – but I truly believe that our differences can be our strengths and we can choose how they affect us. We can make our differences the gap between us, or we can choose to make them valuable and drive even better results – both in work and wider society.

The more we embrace our differences and provide opportunities for people regardless of gender, race, background, or thoughts, the more diversity of thought you will see in your team. That means more creative and innovative thinking and ultimately better ideas, solutions and outcomes!

Dare to be yourself

I sometimes get women, especially young women, coming to me for advice on their career. I typically tell them three things; be you, do what you think is fun and exciting (not what others tell you is “the right” step), and remember to help others on their path.

I think one of our mistakes as women – especially in male dominated industries – is often that we think we need to be like the men around us, but being authentic is one of the key enablers to your success. You might not be like anyone else, but be confident that this is your strength! I respect someone like Michelle Obama a lot for this reason – her authenticity and individuality is inspiring.

I also encourage women to support each other and stand together rather than competing – competition is healthy but it is equally important to have each other’s backs and help each other grow. It can feel hard to make a difference on your own, but imagine the impact if every woman decided to help just two people on their path rather than viewing them as potential competition.

Logistics has enabled me to have friends all over the world and to learn about different cultures, backgrounds and languages. It is an industry of opportunity and I’d encourage any woman out there considering logistics as a future career opportunity to go for it! We need your voice, your perfect self and your ideas in our industry.

Think ahead this Chinese New Year

At Twill we believe in having a strong relationship with our customers, based on communication and honesty. A big part of that relationship is built on us keeping customers informed as pro-actively as possible so that they’re able to plan, book and receive their cargo in good time. Planning around holidays, especially this time of the year, is extremely important and across all of the regions we have customer care teams in place ready to help our customers.

Just around the corner, on 5th February 2019, is one of the biggest holidays in the global logistics calendar – Chinese New Year – and we are encouraging our customers to get their cargo booked well in advance to avoid costly delays.

The Chinese New Year sees almost all factories and manufacturers in the country closing down for at least a week – and when they do open again it is usually a gradual process, with some factories not back to full operations for up to a month. The holiday impacts all other Asia, and so there are further implications in countries across the region.

What does it mean for you?

Millie Wen Gao, a member of our Customer Care team in China, spoke about the effect of Chinese New Year on Twill customers, and shared her advice for those looking to avoid delays: “Everyone is familiar with Chinese New Year, it’s one of the biggest dates in the yearly calendar – but people don’t always fully understand the potential implications of the holiday for their business. The impact of Chinese New Year on logistics is wide-ranging – from a lack of capacity; slow production and processing to changes in shipping schedules – almost every aspect of a cargo’s journey is disrupted.

“Because of the potential length of the holiday, if you don’t manage to get your cargo shipped around these changes to schedule, then you could be looking at weeks of delays – which for any business is a big risk; not just in terms of costs but also a potential lack of stock. When things do start to get back to normal, you’ll be playing catch-up, which is never ideal!

“These scenarios can be avoided, however. With good planning today, you can ensure your business is well stocked and in the best position to avoid delays during Chinese New Year. At Twill we help you do that, by informing you of our own schedule and timeline changes during the period and working with you to process orders ahead of schedule.

“Ultimately, carriers play a big part in defining the schedules available; so if any issues arise we will work hard with our local contacts as well as you, the customer, at destination to find the best solution with the least delay.

“With Twill’s intuitive platform and new features there are tools at your disposal to help in planning, such as our pre-booking feature. Our milestones too will keep you updated at all stages of the booking process; and our customer care staff are available 24/7 to answer queries or help in planning.”

Plan before it’s too late

Asked about her key piece of advice for any customers now thinking about planning for Chinese New Year, Millie concluded: “Our advice is to check your schedules and book early. At this moment, it may feel like over-compensating, but the delays will come thick and fast once the Chinese New Year period begins. It’s always better to stay ahead of schedule than to fall behind – and don’t hesitate to talk to us at Twill about the ways we can help.”

Twill brings the new standard of shipping to SMEs in Canada

The Hague, NL – 27 November 2018 – Twill, a digital shipping company with a mission to remove the logistical barriers of international trade, has announced that it is now open to customers shipping goods to and from Canada.

Targeted towards small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), Twill will now enable customers to book their shipment from a number of export countries for import into Canada, as well as exporting goods around the world. Users will gain access to booking, milestones and exceptions all at the click of a button – and that includes 24/7 customer service.

Art Singarajah, Squad Lead for the Americas at Twill, commented: “Small and medium-sized business is big in Canada – 99.8% of all businesses fit within this category according to BDC. They are vital to the success of Canada’s economy and we know that they are ready to adopt more and more digital ways of working. Until now, they have not been provided with the right solution for their shipping needs, and we hope to address that in a big way with Twill.”

One of Twill’s core offerings is the ability to provide a simple, easy way of shipping for those SMEs who ship up to 500 containers per year. Using Twill, they can spend their time focusing on growing their core business, rather than managing their supply chain.

Earlier this month Twill won the Customer Care award at the Global Freight Awards, hosted in London.

Troels Stovring, CEO of Twill added: “Twill’s Customer Care Ninjas work as one global team, united in helping customers across the world, and we’re very pleased that they’ve been recognised in this way. It’s our ambition that Twill becomes the new standard of simplicity and connectivity when it comes to offering freight services to small and medium-sized enterprises and good customer care is imperative to achieving that. Twill offers quick ability to book freight online 24/7 – and the Canadian market is more than ready for it!”

Twill extends service offering

The Hague, NL – 8 November 2018Twill, a digital shipping company with the mission to remove the barriers of international trade, has announced that it has extended its service offering across Asia and the US, to include all Incoterms (International Commercial Terms), which regulate the deliveries of goods.

Users of the digital platform have access to instant online quotations and bookings on their preferred trade lanes at the click of a button, and Twill provides greater transparency in tracking cargo throughout the shipping process.

Since its launch in 2017, Twill has only offered Free on Board (FOB) incoterms for the booking of freight, where the conditions are controlled by the buyer. Today’s news sees significant expansion for the company to the other half of the market across Asia and the US, meaning that it is now also open to suppliers in the control of ocean freight serving all Incoterms.

Daisy Zhang, Product Manager at Twill commented: “When we started with Twill, we were setting out with a brand-new platform for our customers. Today’s announcement is a great example of our continued product evolution which we have co-created together with our customers.”

Troels Stovring, CEO of Twill concluded: “Over the years, China has typically had a reputation for exporting cheaper, lower-value goods. What we’re seeing now is a transition towards higher-value cargo being exported from China, meaning that suppliers are gaining more and more bargaining power between themselves and the buyer. They want to gain greater control over costs and opening up the Twill platform to enable them to do that will build on our promise to make shipping more simple. This is a trend which we have seen developing in other countries in Asia as well as the United States.”

This feature is currently available on Twill for export shipments from China (including Taiwan and Hong Kong), Vietnam, India, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, and the US. It will be rolled out to the rest of the globe in due course.

The company is also announcing today the opening of four new service types for its customers – Door-to-Door, Door-to-Port, Port-to-Door, and Port-to-Port – available across the globe from today and ensuring maximum flexibility for customers.

Twill continues global expansion, adding six new countries to its digital platform

The Hague, NL – 29 October 2018Twill, a digital shipping company with a mission to remove the logistical barriers of international trade, has announced a host of new countries added to its platform – with Germany, Greater China, Australia, New Zealand, the UAE and Vietnam all now available as import options.

Twill adds value to the logistics process by providing customers with instant quotations as well as full transparency of the shipping process, simple document management and excellent reporting tools – and this latest expansion showcases Twill’s continuing growth.

Elsewhere, the addition of countries like Australia, New Zealand and the UAE see the platform enter new continents and emerging innovative markets. The introduction of Germany further strengthens Twill’s European offer – as well as providing a throwback to the six months spent in Berlin building the foundations of the platform right at the start of Twill’s journey.

Troels Stovring, CEO of Twill spoke about the expansion: “We’re excited to be expanding into these new regions that range from established markets to emerging innovative nations. I think it represents not only our ambition, but also the level of demand which is out there for a digital company like Twill. Over the last 18 months, since we launched, we have continued to take on feedback from our customers and what we’ve found is that the demand for digital solutions is high. It is often our users encouraging us to grow and driving our expansion – rather than the other way around!”

Troels concluded: “At Twill, our focus is always on removing hassle for our customers and adding value to their business, and our service is delivered by an exceptional customer care team. We’re looking forward to our continued growth, and have even more exciting developments in the works over the next year.”
