Houston, TexasDec. 5, 2014DiCentral Inc., a provider of supply chain management solutions and business-to-business (B2B) integration, announced that the company manages millions of transactions across the busy supply chain at Saigon Newport and eight subsidary ports, including Cat lai Port, Song Than, Long Binh, TCIT, TCOT, TCCT, Tan Cang 198, Tan Cang Miền Trung.

Global shipping lines, ports and terminals are struggling with congestion, and the associated consequences stemming from a surge in demand for goods around the world, which is causing a ripple effect across the supply chain, resulting in significant delays in delivery times and increased shipping rates.

After beginning work with Saigon Newport, DiCentral’s ability to centralize data at the server site and model to centralize all data transaction activities, coupled with the company’s flexibility to quickly deploy electronic data interchange (EDI) at new local sites, as well as easily set up new connections with customers, led to the expansion of DiCentral’s products and services into eight additional locations.

“What we are doing in Saigon can be replicated in busy ports around the globe, such as Rotterdam or any other shipping site, whether they are struggling with port congestion or not,” continued Mai.

All of DiCentral’s solutions provide a friendly user interface and EDI system that information technology (IT) and non-IT users can easily work on. The solutions automate inbound and outbound transactions between the EDI system and local systems, including enterprise resource planning (ERP), warehouse management systems (WMS) and transportation management systems (TMS).
