GKN Freight Services Selects Logistics Specialist Shipamax to Automate AP Invoice Data Entry

Shipamax selected for its CargoWise expertise and commitment to building the best-in-class logistics automation solution

Global freight forwarder, GKN Freight Services has selected Shipamax to help with automation of its AP Invoice process for its core offices in Europe and the Americas. Before selecting Shipamax as its document automation partner, GKN was managing data entry from all of its AP Invoices manually, an approach that was proving to be time-consuming and expensive for the company's Finance Team. 

“Shipamax is transforming how we work at GKN, helping to automate what was previously a time-consuming manual process for our accounts team. Although it’s still in the early stages, the platform is already having a positive impact across the organisation, with lower staff input, a lower number of exceptions and a straight-through rate of 30%, which we expect will improve over the coming weeks and months.  commented Fabricio Bley, Project Manager at GKN.

GKN has what Fabricio says is a “complex system, with multiple suppliers and multiple invoices,” so choosing a solution that could handle multiple logistics document types and would easily integrate with the company’s other business systems was crucial. 

Fabricio Bley added; “We looked at a number of automation solutions and eventually chose Shipamax because of their experience with CargoWise and commitment to building a world-class logistics automation platform. The Shipamax platform is very intelligent, reading all files and document formats with a high degree of accuracy” 

Jenna Brown, CEO and Co-Founder at Shipamax, added: “We’re excited to be working with GKN, they’re an important customer for us and it’s great to know that we’re having such a big impact on their business by helping them to optimise a previously inefficient document process. We look forward to helping them continue their drive for excellence as an in-house forwarding team.” 

At Shipamax, we use AI and machine learning technology to help freight forwarders process documents faster and more cheaply than is possible with manual data entry. Get in touch for a free demo today.
