Digital transformation is key to empowering the logistics industry with the means to streamline various business operations, optimize processes, and improve supply chain management. With data at the core, digital technologies are catalysing a paradigm shift in the way logistics companies operate, especially in the wake of the pandemic, enabling them to foster end to-end visibility and deliver superior customer experience. Driven by this transformation, the logistics industry is fundamentally changing, pivoting from traditional business models to a platform and ecosystem approach. At the forefront of this disruption is Ceedbox, powering the fastest growing logistics businesses in the UK and Europe by creating software solutions that revolutionise the world of global transportation.
By equipping logistics businesses with inexpensive and effective solutions, Ceedbox is making way for new levels of service and transparency while demonstrating how it can truly transform the technological capability of organisations.
“Ceedbox was created to challenge the conventional thinking in an archaic industry that needed some life breathed into it,” says Alex Grant, Managing Director at Ceedbox. While most tech led businesses tend to be freight service providers building products for their own specific needs, Ceedbox adopts a different approach to build the next generation of middleware designed to transform the freight service industry into an inclusive and digital ecosystem.
Creating plug-and-play FreightTech, Ceedbox equips logistics businesses with its robust solutions Leda, Container Chase and TOBE.
While Leda is developed to deliver real-time visibility into supply chain operations, Container Chase plugs into the largest shipping lines and provides instant updates on containers and bookings in the sea freight market.
“We are winning in this space because everything we do is frictionless. We do not expect existing freight service providers to switch their ERP platforms, which can be cumbersome. Ceedbox works seamlessly with client’s existing solutions and converts black and white data into full high-definition view,” says Grant. This is immediately transformational; enabling traditional freight forwarders to evolve into tech enabled market-ready challengers.
Having established a prominent position in the industry, Ceedbox boasts of a zero churn rate. Led by an incredible team of engineers, the company is guided by the goal to provide every client with the best customer experience. Ceedbox has been the go-to provider for several eminent logistics players in the UK, including Cardinal Global Logistics and Woodland Group. Kevin Stevens, the chairman of Woodland Group, recently said in a board report that using Leda increased their productivity by 25 percent and has been transformational for their business. Powered by Ceedbox’s innovative and cost-effective tech platforms, these renowned businesses are experiencing growth off the charts.

Ceedbox’s solutions are designed to adapt to the fast-changing paradigm in the world of logistics. In the old-world order, forwarders would traditionally leverage service as a differentiator, relying on customer contracts and trying to own the operation. On the contrary, the new world ecosystem will require businesses to own the data and leverage technology as an aggregator with inclusive one stop solutions. The game has changed so much that if businesses do not have a platform, they are out of the game. Envisioning a completely different future for FreightTech, Ceedbox is striding ahead, equipping businesses to deliver new levels of service and transparency.
