Metro Shipping Selects Catapult QMS by Magaya to Gain Competitive Edge

Dec 3, 2021 | Press Release

Miami, FL – December 3, 2021 – Magaya Corporation, the leading provider of end-to-end logistics and supply chain automation software, today announced that Metro Shipping has added Catapult QMS by Magaya to its technology suite for improved freight rate access and management.

Metro Shipping is one of the United Kingdom’s leading privately-owned logistics companies, providing global brands with competitive land, sea, and air freight services. For more than 40 years, the company has developed specialized services and flexible solutions for a variety of customers in the retail, manufacturing, and chemical industries. Based in Birmingham, England, Metro’s team of over 150 professionals builds highly competitive programs designed to increase speed to market, simplify inventory management, streamline product flow, and lower costs for its customers.

Metro was working with other software solutions but soon realized that they did not meet its needs. Not only was staff becoming frustrated, but the system was becoming increasingly outdated and cumbersome to maintain. Acquiring and managing carrier rates through a disjointed, manual process was time-consuming and unproductive. Metro’s procurement function serves as the resource for quotes, booking referrals, and pricing for sea freight activities, and as such, required a best-in-class solution. Lacking the speed and efficiency that was essential for its customers, Metro turned to Magaya for a solution.

“We knew that the right freight rate management solution was critical and decided to gather input from internal stakeholders before making a decision,” commented Metro Shipping director of information systems, Claus Rasmussen. “After receiving the unwavering support of management, procurement, pricing, and administration – as well as a favorable industry recommendation – the decision was easy. We are confident Catapult by Magaya will dramatically improve the procurement function and open up new pathways for a more productive workplace.”

Catapult QMS by Magaya is the freight quotes and rate management solution that will provide Metro Shipping with a single control tower for searching and comparing rates, managing margins, responding to RFQs, and delivering winning quotes. By eliminating the need to constantly contact individual carriers for pricing, Metro will have faster access to rates and the ability to provide multiple carrier and sailing options in the same quote. Metro will benefit from a single system for origin and destination costs and system-generated P&L rates prior to finalizing quotes. Plus, with an easier process and greater automation, Magaya will allow additional Metro staff members to create large proposals with greater efficiency. 

 “Confident of Magaya’s reputation and customer approval, we encourage potential customers to research the market and were not surprised that Metro received a complimentary recommendation,” commented Magaya Chief Revenue Officer Mark Buman. “With Magaya’s market-leading connectivity to carriers, Metro will have the ability to generate timely quotes and deliver them with the speed required to excel in a competitive environment.”
