Sponsored by Businesswire

Logistics by E2open
(Cloud Logistics), a leading innovator and
provider of a modern, easy-to-use transportation management system
(TMS), is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with Raven
Logistics, an international company that specializes in advanced rail
management around Rule 11, including planning and execution.

“Providing the best service for our customers is our top priority. When
we were asked for Rule 11 rail management within the TMS, we knew Raven
Logistics was the right partner to help us quickly bring the new
capabilities to market,” said senior vice president of transportation
and founder of Cloud Logistics, Mark Nix. “Two of our largest wood
products customers already leverage Raven Logistics, and both spoke
highly of their longstanding relationship with regard to the company’s
unique capabilities around Rule 11 compliance. With this partnership, we
can greatly increase value for our customers and prospects in the oil
and gas, agricultural, and building materials industries. Prior to the
partnership we were only able to provide intermodal rail functionality,
so this greatly enhances our offering.”

Cloud Logistics is committed to creating the most modern, user-friendly
way to help customers manage their transportation operations at an
affordable price point. The alliance integrates the services of both
Cloud Logistics and Raven Logistics and will ultimately offer customers
a single cloud-based system for monitoring and managing rail, intermodal
and truck shipments.

Rule 11 is a railroad accounting term that refers to a customer shipping
its freight pre-paid to an intermediate point, followed by collecting
beyond that intermediate point to the destination. The partnership will
establish an affordable option for multi-modal shippers that struggle
with Rule 11. In addition, joint customers can receive meaningful
operational savings on their multi-modal shipments while ensuring Rule
11 compliance.

“We are thrilled to announce this strategic alliance,” said Duane Kuzak,
owner of Raven Logistics. “We will now provide multi-modal shippers with
a single solution to manage their freight from a single portal. Raven’s
expertise with Rule 11 compliance in conjunction with Cloud Logistics
will provide greater visibility into the supply chain while reducing the
operational burden.”
