Singapore-headquartered trade technology company GUUD Pte Ltd (“GUUD”) has recently announced the launch of Clickargo (SG), a new digital logistics platform by GUUD Singapore designed to promote the digitalization of the logistics sector and to create greener supply chains using technology.
During the launch event, GUUD Singapore signed a Memorandum of Understanding with four key strategic partners –Shell Eastern Petroleum (Pte) Ltd (“Shell”), CO2 Connect Pte Ltd (“CO2X”), Assure (Singapore) Pte Ltd (“Assure”) and Yinson Green Technologies Pte Ltd (“Yinson”), to promote the adoption of ClickargoSG amongst commercial vehicle owners and companies, and to drive sustainability efforts across the supply chain via joint programs.
The launch event and Memorandum of Signing ceremony were held at the Singapore Turf Club and were graced by the Senior Minister of State for Transport, and Senior Minister of State for Sustainability and the Environment, Dr. Amy Khor, who delivered the opening remarks.
Industry sources added that The ClickargoSG platform currently provides GUUD’s pilot freight forwarder users such as DSV Air & Sea (Singapore) Pte Ltd and Crane Worldwide Logistics Singapore Pte Ltd with convenient access to the use of electric vehicles for their trucking and transportation needs, as well as track-and-trace, route optimization and digital proofs of delivery. This helps streamline processes creating efficient workflows, real-time access to the truck driver’s location as well as updates on which deliveries have been made.
With route planning optimization, this also means that energy consumption is reduced, and this provides cost and time savings for the businesses as well as helps the companies meet their environmental, social, and governance goals.
The Industry sources also revealed that as part of the partnership agreement, ClickargoSG users will be able to sign up for CO2X’s carbon emission tracking software which facilitates the optimization of driver behavior and provides easier access to green financing.
The Corporate Shell Card will also be available on ClickargoSG, and users can enjoy up to 24% off fuels and 4% off EV charging at Shell recharge locations and compensate for the carbon emissions from their fuel usage with the carbon offset program. Users will also be able to apply to lease electric vehicles from Yinson at discounted rates, and secure preferential motor insurance renewal rates from Assure Insurance for vehicles registered on the ClickargoSG platform.
Mr Siva Gunesparan, General Manager of GUUD Singapore shared, “ClickargoSG was launched to help the logistics community kickstart their sustainability journey. While we’re promoting digitalization and the adoption of electric vehicles, we also understand that much of the industry still utilizes diesel or fuel-powered vehicles, and making a complete change will take time. With these in mind, we’ve brought on board with us, like-minded partners who are willing to walk this journey with us, to encourage our digital platform usage which helps logistics providers to track their carbon emissions, optimize their fuel efficiency, and work slowly but surely towards having greener supply chains.”
