LONDON – October 13, 2017 – Gravity Supply Chain today announced that Röhlig Logistics has gone live with Gravity’s cloud-based supply chain management platform providing real-time end-to-end supply chain visibility to their customers. The white label version of Gravity’s Purchase Order Management solution enables Röhlig’s customers to benefit from real-time visibility of purchase orders and inventory at SKU level from purchase order creation through to receipt at the final destination.
Röhlig Logistics is a family-owned freight forwarding company that offers logistics solutions in the field of sea freight, air freight, project logistics and contract logistics. Founded in Bremen, Germany in 1852, it now has a global network of over 2,000 staff members in about 30 countries.
