Logistics companies across the sector agree: Integrating transportation management systems (TMS) is cumbersome. Complicated wiring isn’t the only thing leaving businesses tangled. Problems such as communication errors, tight deadlines and overwhelmed IT staff often make integration costs spiral out of control.
Chicago-based Redwood Logistics aims to eliminate these inefficiencies and simplify the integration of supply chain technologies with its latest advancement, RedwoodConnect 2.0. The software was first revealed at the FreightWaves LIVE conference in November, where it earned recognition as Best in Show.
In this Freight.Tech Update, presented by Redwood Logistics, FreightWaves Lead Economist Anthony Smith and Eric Rempel, chief innovation officer at Redwood Logistics, discussed the ambitious goal to streamline systems integration for logistics providers both large and small.
“Connect 2.0 has the chance to become the industry’s de facto integration tool due to its incredible cost-effectiveness, security and scalability,” said Rempel. “Our technology provides small and mid-sized businesses the same tool kit typically reserved for larger enterprises.”
Rempel outlined Connect 2.0’s objective to democratize supply chain management for logistics providers of all sizes. Users are presented with “plug and play” cloud-led supply chain functionality that simplifies workflows and provides greater avenues for data sharing.
“Connect 2.0 simplifies and streamlines the systems integration process,” Rempel said. “It allows our customers to double down on their technology investment in one seamless place by mitigating integration risks and providing a clear path for eliminating legacy debt.”
