SupplyStack and project44: a great partnership where real-time visibility is fully integrated into a modern Transportation Management System (TMS), truly transforming the way people manage transportation and making their lives easier.
Antwerp & Chicago - March 17, 2021 - SupplyStack, a modern, cloud-based Transportation Management System (TMS), today announced its partnership with project44, a global leader in supply chain visibility for shippers and logistics service providers.
Visibility has been a trending topic the past few years and shippers and Logistics Service Providers are exploring ways to put this visibility data to work and make it actionable. SupplyStack’s TMS+ Control Tower is by design built for visibility and by integrating with project44, SupplyStack’s customers can benefit from project44’s large connected carrier network to bring real-time road and ocean visibility into their daily operations.
“We are excited with this partnership as it perfectly complements our full circle TMS+ Control Tower. Our solution combines classic transportation management functionality with a Transportation Control Tower which makes us uniquely positioned to offer shippers an end-to-end solution for managing transportation, covering everything from sourcing to settlement, with a strong focus on monitoring, automation, and collaboration.” said Nick Poels, CEO of SupplyStack.“
With this partnership, SupplyStack embeds real-time visibility into its customer’s daily operations, transforming visibility into a company-wide capability that drives efficiencies and improves its customer experience.
“Supply chains are constantly facing disruptions and need to remain agile to handle today’s transportation landscape. To do this, shippers need to break down data silos and gain a complete view into their data in real-time,” said Vernon O’Donnell, Chief Product and Services Officer of project44. “By partnering with SupplyStack, customers can leverage the power of project44’s high-fidelity data directly within SupplyStack’s TMS+ Control Tower, providing all stakeholders with the data needed to take action.”
“We strongly believe that technology in logistics is about making people’s lives easier. It’s about making them excel in what they do. And project44 is a great example of how real-time visibility can fuel these technologies, making visibility data actionable. We don’t just “show” visibility, but really use it to drive workflows, alerts, and update milestones.” Nick explains.
SupplyStack and project44 are both focused on expanding visibility and insights across the entire supply chain. This partnership will expand into other areas beyond the TMS+ integration to provide actionable visibility across the supply chain.
“We’re both really looking forward to this partnership, and believe we’re only at the beginning of the journey. There is so much potential in adding visibility and context to jobs already being done today: warehouse managers who want to anticipate on trucks running late, customer service who’d love to contact customers proactively to give them a heads up when shipments are delayed or transport planners rescheduling a shipment because the carrier canceled last minute.” Nick continues.
SupplyStack’s modern Transportation Management apps are shaking up the TMS industry, giving shippers of all sizes the opportunity to truly redefine the way they manage transportation. The SaaS platform is designed to make logistics professionals thrive at what they do, leading to increased efficiency, cost reductions, and improving the overall logistics service and experience towards their customers. Currently, numerous leaders in the industry, including Sony, Umicore, DHL, Duracell, and Atlas Copco, are relying on SupplyStack’s TM apps to manage their logistics and transportation flows on a daily basis.
