Success Story

One-stop vendor management platform for Hermes-OTTO International (H-OI) to process shipping documents

Project Overview:

Tradelink has established a long–term partnership with Hermes-OTTO International (H-OI) a global sourcing company based in Germany. Since 2006, Tradelink has been providing its vendor management service for H-OI to manage shipments.
