project44 and GateHouse Logistics announce exclusive partnership 17th October 2018
project44 (p44) and GateHouse Logistics jointly announced today that they have entered into an exclusive, multinational agreement which will provide secure and authorized access to the largest visibility network across North America and Europe. The partnership accelerates the ability for both technology providers to deliver visibility solutions across multiple transportation modes and geographies.
End-to-end supply chain visibility is critical for complex global organizations looking to monitor global operations, increase efficiencies and improve the overall customer experience. This first of its kind multinational partnership provides visibility into key transportation processes, ensuring global organizations can accurately see and proactively respond to all events in their supply chain at the “speed of thought.”
GateHouse Logistics CEO Jesper Bennike commented that “project44 and GateHouse Logistics have been championing the importance of high-fidelity data for years. This collaboration aligns with both company’s core promise to deliver the most comprehensive global visibility engine powered only by secure, high-quality and real-time information.”
Since 1992, GateHouse Logistics has been leading the way in securely sharing data across the supply chain, bringing with it much-needed visibility of inbound and outbound logistics. ghTrack is a GDPR compliant, neutral and hardware agnostic data sharing service enabling Gatehouse Logistics to build the largest network of telematics systems across Europe. Similarly, project44 has quickly become the leader in North American advanced visibility by building the largest and most inclusive network of capacity providers connected via ELD, telematics, direct API connections, app-less tracking, or smartphone applications.
With this partnership, customers of project44 and GateHouse Logistics now have immediate and actionable access to a network of 175,000 multimodal carriers – comprised of 90,000 capacity providers in North America and 85,000 in Europe. Implementation processes have also been expedited to ensure fast and frictionless onboarding for all customers and rapid time-to-value.
“Visibility is the number one supply chain initiative. We’ve seen a record number of North American and European companies investing in real-time visibility platforms to be used either stand-alone or with a TMS, CRM, WMS or ERP,” said project44 founder and CEO Jett McCandless. “This partnership accelerates the speed at which manufacturers, retailers, ecommerce providers, distributors, freight forwarders, and 3PLs can successfully realize the benefits of end-to-end visibility by working with a single visibility provider for all shipments regardless of geographic location.”
