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

Sponsored by Businesswire

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
