project44, Technicolor and MercuryGate to Share Supply Chain Visibility Best Practices at Velocity 2019

May 2, 2019

LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 2, 2019--Ecommerce growth is impacting shipping precision, speed and costs. In 2017 alone, US companies spent over $1.5 trillion transporting goods, according to the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals’ annual State of Logistics report. Next week, at Velocity 2019, MercuryGate’s annual user conference, project44, the world’s leading Advanced Visibility Platform for shippers and third-party logistics firms, will be sharing best practices for more cost-effective, high-speed, high-volume freight shipping.

project44, Technicolor and MercuryGate will explore how organizations can build high performing logistics networks equipped to handle extreme shipping volumes in a panel discussion, titled Managing High Volume, High Velocity Multimodal Freight.

“With the rise of ecommerce, everyone has come to expect faster, more precise, and more visible deliveries,” said Mike Reed, Chief Strategy Officer of project44. “Managing shipments across ocean, rail, truck and all the exchanges in-between is a serious challenge. Virtually all retailers and their suppliers are straining to meet customer expectations, while keeping costs in line and dealing with unpredictable events such as extreme weather, new tariffs and boarder closings. The executives on this panel will share their experiences, lessons learned, and best practices in building agile supply chains that can adapt to current market conditions.”

Leveraging the power of project44, organizations, like Technicolor, are able to increase operational efficiencies, reduce costs, improve shipping performance, and deliver an exceptional Amazon-like experience to their customers. The electronics manufacturer has implemented project44’s Advanced Visibility platform leveraging the native integration with MercuryGate to eliminate gaps in multimodal (LTL, volume LTL and Full Truckload) visibility and enhance transportation predictability.
