In the era of information transparency, the core that freight forwarding enterprises should grasp in the transformation is to provide good service for the client group, namely, shippers, and determine their own competitive advantages so that this industry will not be eliminated. There are no obsolete industries, only obsolete enterprises.

The second step is to define the digital service interface of the business and open the service. The third is to connect various portal platforms and realize diversified multi-channel business diversion.
The international logistics is in a dilemma where customers are scattered, individual demand is various and R & D resources of logistics service provider is in the period of stagnation. Logistics service providers are expected to build component architecture and open expansion interface and support flexible and secure third-party extension capability, in addition, they all need to provide training certification and audit system. At the same time, internal research and development is employed to meet the function demand of prompt customization based on open interface R&D.
The digital innovation of international logistics is mainly reflected in the following two aspects.

Therefore, data is a strategic asset for every freight forwarding enterprise. The challenges of digital transformation mainly include four aspects: rapid response to the market, cost reduction and efficiency improvement to shorten the transportation cycle, continuous innovation to improve customer experience, and surging number of interactive transactions that require data to suport decisions. How to build a data-centric, open, secure and stable technology platform to support the standardization, service and ecology of the business level?
