Freight Systems Company has opted for a high-end hardware solution from Fujitsu Siemens Computers (FSC) to power its business critical applications.

The Dubai-based freight-forwarding organisation has installed FSC’s Intel-based Xeon Primergy rack server to power its supply chain management applications.

“The increased requirements of a global marketplace spread over distant locations has made it mandatory to make our business available to customers any time and anywhere. Freight Systems needed a robust IT infrastructure having absolute reliability and flexibility in order to run its global supply chain management system linking offices in 36 locations across 12 countries,” said C. Mani, IT manager, Freight Systems Company.

“The Primergy servers from FSC were the ideal choice for the Frescon system which controls the supply chain management at Freight Systems, because they were able to meet our demand for total dependability and deliver extremely consistent and secure computing infrastructures for our e-business model. They also guarantee scalability to meet increasing loads with acceptable performance,” he added.

The server was delivered by FSC’s qualified partner Galadari Computers, which also offered Freight Systems “extensive support services, which are essential in this kind of critical computing network,” comments Mani.

The Xeon server housed with Freight Systems supports key infrastructure and accommodates rapid technology developments to sustain an integrated system that links the shipper, consignee and the destination agent through the Freight Systems network.

In addition, it facilitates the setting up of a supply chain management system that enables for online tracking of information about shipments and purchase orders. The Oracle 8.1.7 applications linked to the system also incorporate email trigger modules for a continuous communication network.
