LetMeShip Solutions – a strategic partnership on the road to success
2013 LetMeShip Solutions emerged from a strategic partnership between the first web-based multi-carrier booking platform LetMeShip Online www.letmeship.com and the software company SGS Griep Meerwinck GmbH www.sgs-software.de.
At the “Transfairlog” exhibition 2012 in Hamburg the CEO’s Mark Winkelmann and Björn Sandkamp met for the first time. Together they quickly developed approaches in the area of multi-carrier shipping and the idea of a strategic partnership was born.
From the beginning a demand for a solution to handle huge shipping volumes and complex shipping structures became apparent in discussions with customers and partners. Out of this LetMeShip Solutions developed – A Multi-carrier shipping system to optimize shipping processes and reduce costs.
Objective of the cooperation is to enhance shipping processes with the proven SGS software “System 5100” and the know-how of the web based multi-carrier shipping platform LetMeShip. The result has become LetMeShip Solutions, the Multi-carrier shipping solution – from office shipping to warehouse shipping.
Since 2004 Cargo Pool Switzerland uses a version of the LetMeShip Solutions application. Since 2011 the application is further developed together with pilot customer “Alstom Deutschland”.
The synergistic effects of a strategic partnership are clearly recognizable for LetMeShip Solutions. ITA Shipping and SGS both have many years of experience in the field of multi-carrier shipping. Combining the knowledge of booking platform and shipping software enables LetMeShip Solutions to offer IT-shipping systems for various customers. Independent from the number of shipments – from 1 to more than 20.000 per day – the shipment will take the best route to the end customer. The objective: All carriers integrated into one system and integrated into existing shipping processes.
By moving into shared offices in May 2014 the partnership is continuously extended and the cooperation is strengthened.
