ABBYY Solutions for Transportation & Logistics

Target and remove friction from your shipments.

Remaining competitive in today’s changing environment requires eliminating friction from document-driven processes so you always know where shipments are and can validate the information on them. Operational improvement is your key to success.

Get the data from documents where it needs to be, on time and error free

Bad information at any point in a process can stop a shipment, waste precious fuel, or delay delivery. The level of speed, accuracy, and transparency that your processes have when it comes to moving data through them is a key indicator of performance in Transportation and Logistics.

ABBYY provides an approach and a platform for Transportation and Logistics providers to help you get all the information from shipping documents right and instantly verified at every clearance along a shipping itinerary. We help you identify where and why clearances are interrupted in processes, most often from being unable to verify their information, so you can identify which are most important to address first.
