Leading organizations choose Windward

During COVID, Windward Ocean Freight Visibility allowed us to improve our ETA accuracy from around 30% to 80%. That has had a massive impact on our efficiency and, of course, on our customer satisfaction.

Windward’s data accuracy was best fitted to become our company’s single source of truth. Its user-friendliness and ease of use promised the smoothest and quickest adoption across all teams, including those that had rarely used this type of technology.

We were absolutely blown away by Windward’s data. The visibility down to the port details and a drill down of any delay causes – and all in real time. Other available solutions today are a million miles away from that.
