How logistics service providers can benefit from the use of machine translation tools

Logistics is a fast-moving industry. You know that speed and agility are key success factors in logistics to respond to your customer needs independent whether you are in the aviation, maritime or truck transportation business.


Although there are these days many great tools which help you to simplify and manage these complexities, it is often the case that one hurdle remains: Language barriers.


Translating key documents for freight, shipping and handling is part of your every day’s challenge to accommodate for your client’s expectations and to ensure delivery on time. The kind of documents you need to handle and translate in the appropriate language(s) ranges from:

  • Logistics instruction materials for subcontractors and their staff;

  • Operation and maintenance manuals;

  • Legal documents and reports;

  • Freight and shipping documentation;

  • Corporate websites, marketing and advertising materials; and to

  • Training material and e-learning courses
