project44 announced new capabilities to help organizations unlock unprecedented levels of performance, productivity and customer experience.
“Driven by a deep commitment to supply chain transparency and predictability, we’re excited to introduce an evolutionary standard in global supply chain visibility,” says Jett McCandless, founder and CEO of project44. “With increasing demands for agility, the world’s leading brands are looking for a new level of real-time collaboration, automation, and predictive insights. Our new capabilities can help them make faster, more effective decisions, and as a result, build more resilient supply chains.”
“This year has proven that real-time visibility and frictionless collaboration across the entire transportation ecosystem is vital,” says Kristian Kaas Mortensen, Director of Strategic Partnerships at Girteka Logistics. “By enabling shippers who use project44 access to their Girteka Logistics shipments, we achieve full transparency within our transport network and can proactively mitigate any risks. This high level of consistent performance powered by project44 has been and will continue to be mission-critical to our business.”
With project44’s newly launched capabilities, organizations can:
Improve carrier collaboration. Transportation carriers now have access to a unique set of tools, including a carrier-centric interface within project44’s Visibility Operations Center (VOC) that visualizes current and historical shipment data along with benchmarks broken down by lane for all customers using the project44 platform. Providing carriers and shippers shared real-time access to tracked shipments and analytics enables a more collaborative relationship, which improves service levels, reduces costs, and empowers more efficient exception management.
Increase pre- and post-shipment workflow automation and orchestration. New capabilities enable organizations to automate and orchestrate LTL and TL tender, dispatch and digital document retrieval processes, including electronic bill of lading (eBOL) and proof of delivery (POD) in North America and Europe. Automating over the road shipment execution increases the quality of in-transit tracking, provides real-time access to tracking analytics, reduces costs and improves the safety of frontline workers at critical handoff points.
Harness multimodal data to unlock predictive insights. project44’s new release provides organizations with deeper predictive and exception management capabilities to proactively manage multimodal shipments. For example, expanded Ocean capabilities leverage ocean carrier schedule data to improve ETA accuracy and provide configurable, port aware alerts enabling efficient supply chain exception management. In addition, real-time condition monitoring with configurable notifications ensures regulatory compliance and significantly improves cold chain visibility on temperature-sensitive shipments for food and beverage, CPG and pharmaceutical companies.
Gain order and inventory level visibility. In today’s complex global supply chain, there is a multitude of disconnected systems and identifiers (such as purchase order, SKU and BOL) used to track a physical good from origin to destination. project44’s enhanced order and inventory visibility solution improves operational efficiency, on-time delivery and proactive decision making by providing a single view of associated SKUs, orders and shipments, while also predicting risk using a predictive health scoring algorithm.
