Thanks to Forto, Home24 was able to focus more time and energy on its core business. Credit to the intuitive operation of the Forto platform, the changeover was no problem for the members of the logistics team. It was particularly appreciated that all communication and documents are always accessible to everyone. Regardless of who initiated the shipment, each team member can find all the information they need in seconds and successfully complete the shipment. Even enquiries from customs or other authorities are no longer a problem, as all documents are archived online and can be easily found. In addition to the technological assistance, Home24 also appreciates the team of their Forto contact person, Tilman. Many problems could be solved or even avoided through proactive communication.
Working with Forto as a freight forwarder has a great positive impact on Home24’s supply chain management. Forto provides complete transparency on the status of all shipments and makes it very easy to manage documents online. Faster digital processes help the team spend less time looking for information, avoid delays and allow them to manage more shipments by the team as a whole.
