Ecu Worldwide started activities in 1988, serving the Antwerp based forwarding industry, followed by expansion to the rest of the world. Today Ecu Worldwide is a proud member of the Allcargo Global Logistics group of Mumbai. Underpinning this growth has been a dedicated management team, many with over 20 years service and key to the company’s success.
Ecu Worldwide specializes in the art of LCL (Less Than Container) consolidation services on a global scale, servicing thousands of small, medium and large companies. This is accomplished through a global network of owned offices on each continent. The company sponsors IT solutions within its organization on each level of interaction and supports many formats of EDI connectivity.
Consolidating shipments into container loads is an exacting business, especially with the complex stowage and segregation requirements of dangerous goods. This policy of driving innovative IT solutions led Ecu Worldwide to adopt Hazcheck Gateway and Hazcheck Enterprise for DG acceptance, consolidation and management in global operations. ‘Hazcheck Gateway is a very useful tool for checking segregation requirements for LCL cargo loaded in containers. A very good feature is the overview of labels that have to be put on the container when validating a load.’
Hazcheck Enterprise is the most powerful and comprehensive DG booking and management system available for global containership operations. From initial DG acceptance checks through to interfacing with ship planning, it meets the demands of high-volume multi-leg schedules.
Hazcheck Gateway is the web-based validation tool for container shipping lines, ferry operators, logistics companies and ports to check dangerous goods shipments by sea for compliance with IMDG Code and 49 CFR provisions and any pre-entered port, operator and vessel restrictions.
