We helped a global shipping leader achieve on-demand scaling through a multi-geography accessible RPA solution.




Cloud IaaS Consulting & Engineering; 24x7 Managed Services


Robotic Process Automation (RPA)



Project scope

— RPA on cloud

— Architecture and provisioning

About the client

The client is the world’s third-largest shipping company with a revenue of $21 billion and a market share of nearly 12%. It owns more than 536 container vessels and operates in 70+ countries. In 2016, it was acquired by a France-based shipping giant with a much larger scale of operations.

Business challenges

  • The client wanted on-demand scaling based on bots/virtual workers to achieve better flexibility, accuracy/quality, and continuity and reduce the risk of loss through human error or fatigue.
  • This RPA solution needed to be accessible from multiple geographies across the globe.
  • Rapid time-to-market was a key concern for them in order to take advantage of certain market opportunities.


The client had been using the AssistEdge RPA product on the Azure cloud in Singapore for the past year. They wanted a similar implementation in France but for a much larger user base. Given the client’s long-standing relationship with 1CloudHub and multiple successful engagements with us in the past, they approached us for help with deploying this cloud solution within a short turnaround time.
