A comprehensive logistics company, South Korea-based Hanaro TNS provides customized services with a global network and advanced logistics systems.
With 1,876 employees, the company is striving to build international transportation capabilities, expand its logistics centers, and strengthen its ranking as the top domestic forwarder for inland and railway transportation.
Hanaro TNS has a next-generation integrated global logistics management platform called Worldwide Information Network System (WINS), which was developed in-house, that supports the entire business process of its headquarters and overseas operations, and provides accounting and management information.
With the logistics industry changing dramatically in the last few years with new concepts like last mile, omnichannel, mega-warehouse, and living logistics, Hanaro TNS needed to upgrade its logistics system to support innovative models, supported by automation, intelligence, and a smart logistics platform.
The company, which had been using Microsoft Azure and Alibaba Cloud, needed to future-proof its critical applications and upgrade its infrastructure to keep pace with the evolving technology trends and business needs.
Oracle transformed our mission-critical business application through a one-step upgrade and migration to OCI.

Hanaro TNS evaluated Microsoft Azure but ultimately decided Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) met all its present and future requirements with better performance, improved ROI, and increased security.
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure’s ability to support optical character recognition—uploading barcode images, extracting data from the images, and entering that into the database—was another reason the company selected OCI.
Additionally, Oracle’s willingness to innovate with Hanaro TNS and to provide valuable insights from data tilted the scales.
Oracle transformed Hanaro TNS’s critical business application through a one-step upgrade and migration to Oracle Database Cloud Service and Oracle Analytics Cloud on OCI to bring improved performance, better analytics, increased security, and the best price-performance in the market.
Hanaro TNS today has an environment that delivers much better TCO. With better performance and an improved user experience, the company has improved its time to market by 30% since migrating to OCI.
