Continental Warehousing Corporation Ltd goes live on Kale’s CAPELLA system
By Jacob Puthenparambil
Continental Warehousing Corporation (Nhava Seva) Limited has gone live on CAPELLA at 3 of its locations. It is also the first client to go live on CAPELLA with MS Azure Platform. CWC chose Kale’s CAPELLA- a proven enterprise wide web-based CFS/ICD management system used by many global CFS’s and ICD’s successfully for streamlining their container operations.
CAPELLA™ was selected after rigorous evaluation of available applications in the market by CWC Team. CWC selected CAPELLA as it can be deployed both as licensed software and as a SaaS based application. A Microsoft Windows Azure platform base provides CAPELLA clients the operational efficiency, development flexibility, scalability, data security amongst many other business benefits. Being an enterprise-wide, robust and web-based system, it automates the dis-organised CFS/ICD processes to give the operator instant access to information and provides the management with complete visibility of their business at all times.
Mr. Amruthesh Reddy Chedimala- IT Manager, Continental Warehousing Corporation (Nhava Seva) Limited said “Our operations were semi-automated relying on legacy system which proved to be very expensive including the y-o-y maintenance costs. We required a feature rich, integrated and scalable solution for both our local and international needs. CAPELLA offers expansive features for CFS operations right from terminal operation, container inventory, yard management, back to town Processes and other features with a comprehensive reporting tool. Moreover with an MS Windows Azure platform the deployment time was fast and we no more have to bear costs on infrastructure, maintenance or administration. We have successfully implemented CAPELLA at 2 of our CFS locations at Chennai – Madhavaram and Redhills and at the ICD of our group company in Hyderabad.”
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Vineet Malhotra – SVP, Kale Logistics Solutions said, “CAPELLA incorporates industry best-practices for global CFS/ ICD operations. It provides automation, quality of data exchange and decision support in compliance with all local & international trade regulations. In recent years we have seen a greater adoption of a system like CAPELLA in global CFS operations as it effectively addresses the challenge of revenue leakages & container tracking while offering deployment flexibility.”
