According to Gartner Inc.’s recently released Market Guide for Real-Time Transportation Visibility Platforms, visibility is only possible with comprehensive network coverage and compliance. Today project44, the global leader in advanced visibility for shippers and logistics service providers, announced a new service level agreement (SLA) around full truckload carrier onboarding. This groundbreaking agreement demonstrates the technology provider’s commitment to results and offers a money-back guarantee.
Under the new carrier coverage SLA, project44 will guarantee that 90% of a shipper’s contracted truckload carriers in North America and Europe will be live within 30 days of starting implementation. With carrier compliance at the foundation of transportation visibility, this commitment will rapidly deliver upon the promise of real-time visibility and provide project44 customers a significant competitive advantage in today’s Delivery Economy.
“Carrier network coverage is the linchpin to visibility. Uline evaluated a variety of technology providers and knew that our full truckload visibility implementation would fail without adequate network coverage. It was very clear to us that p44 provided the largest carrier network along with the most scalable and automated onboarding process,” said Angelo Ventrone, VP of Logistics at Uline, the leading distributor of shipping, industrial and packaging materials in North America. “As a partner, they went above and beyond to ensure compliance, which has resulted in truckload tracking percentages of over 95%. Ultimately selecting project44 has enabled Uline to efficiently deliver on a differentiated customer experience.”
While this service level agreement is new to the industry, project44’s commitment to its carrier network is not. The visibility provider serves over 300 enterprise customers with the largest carrier network across North America and Europe. This includes connections to more than 760 ELD/telematics providers over more than 48 countries, and connections to 4.33 million drivers, 3.55 million trucks, and 800,000 fleets. Thanks to its automated onboarding application, the Network Management Center™, project44 enables customers to accelerate their time to value and immediately see the results of their visibility investment.
“Coop operates with more than 1,000 stores who all need deliveries on a weekly basis. For us to have the most efficient supply chain, we lacked an end-to-end overview of our carrier and subcontractor deliveries,” said Kennet Thorsen, Senior Distribution Manager at Coop Denmark A/S. “Our organization leveraged project44’s robust carrier network and world-class onboarding process to rapidly increase the ROI of our technology investment, streamline operations and better meet service goals towards our stores.”
project44’s Network Management Center debuted in Europe over three years ago, driving unprecedented time-to-live with Truckload carriers. 48% of carriers achieve live status within one day, 81% within ten days – all through an automated, self-service cloud-based application. By combining project44’s automated tools and enterprise-grade implementation processes, the world’s leading ecommerce retailer, utilizing more than 2,500 different truckload providers across Europe, saw 95% connectivity in the first 45 days of working with project44. The commitment outlined in this SLA provides shippers of all sizes with the tools necessary to compete with even the largest ecommerce companies.
“Carrier coverage is critical to seeing the ROI of visibility, and project44 is dedicated to quickly achieving high compliance percentages for our customers. It has been our goal from day one to build global and multimodal connectivity and serve as the supply chain ecosystem’s connective tissue. This SLA formalizes our commitment, ensuring the entire industry truly understands the power the right visibility solution can have on delivering rapid and enduring results for the world’s leading retailers, manufacturers and distributors,” stated Tommy Barnes, Head of Global Network Partnerships at project44.
By following project44’s implementation program and best practices, project44 will offer the 30-day onboarding SLA with a money back guarantee to shippers in North America and Europe. To learn more about the SLA and project44’s Advanced Visibility Platform™, contact the project44 team today.
