Supply chain visibility provider project44 has announced the launch of Movement by project44, a platform the company describes as “game-changing".
According to project44, the solution combines the power of the company’s entire product suite, including its internally developed products and acquired capabilities, into one cohesive platform.
project44 says the Movement platform “empowers teams to manage exceptions, streamline shipment operations, automate manual processes and collaborate to resolve customer issues, all from a single platform. It delivers value by providing complete order-level visibility across all modes globally, including multimodal estimates, from raw material to consumer door.”
The Chicago-based supply chain visibility firm writes that everyone in the supply chain can use Movement, regardless of role, while it it can also deliver data to “any person or system”. Moreover, the platform features an “intuitive interface and unified APIs” that simplify issue resolution, says project44.
project44’s press release boasts that Movement has the largest network of connected carriers, logistics service providers, shippers, technology providers and consumers in the industry and can create connections for those who are not already part of the network faster than any competitor.
In addition, the company claims it has the most robust dataset and the most sophisticated data science technology in the sector.
Commenting on the launch of Movement, Jett McCandless, founder and CEO of project44, said:
“People, organizations and economies depend on the efficient movement of goods around the world, but the past few years have shown how volatile demand capacity is, how difficult it can be for carriers to find the right loads and how unpredictable delivery times are. Movement enables visibility, agility and workflow automation, but most importantly, it fosters collaboration. That is the key. Because together, we can make supply chains work, improve lives and ensure access to the goods the world needs.”
“Most visibility vendors offer a single mode or narrow set of capabilities. They talk about a 'single pane of glass,’ but without the ability to adapt to a user’s preferences, these solutions are one dimensional, which is a thing of the past. Movement is the future. It’s multidimensional, where each facet presents a unique perspective tailored to the user’s requirements. This level of configurability, value and collaboration is necessary to tackle the world’s biggest supply chain challenges. The name 'Movement’ represents the part we all play in solving them, inside or outside the industry.”
project44’s press release also contained a number of quotes from its key customers and partners, including road transport giant Girteka, brewer InBev Europe, as well as global freight forwarding and logistics provider JAS Worldwide.
Andreea Calin, Logistics Operations Transformation Manager at Anheuser-Busch InBev Europe, said:
“With Movement, we hope to easily manage logistics operations in one user-friendly place and exceed customers’ rising expectations in an efficient, reliable and sustainable way.”
Paul Foster, Vice President of Development and Integrations at JAS Worldwide, stated:
“Movement will give us the end-to-end visibility we need to manage high-level logistics to meet and exceed customer expectations.”
Finally, Edvardas Liachovičius, CEO of Girteka Holding, added:
“We have a strong long-term partnership with project44, and already leverage their market-recognized RTV solution. The next step is to leverage the Movement platform which will allow us to better manage data from carriers and customers enabling greater collaboration, access to real-time insights and streamlined workflows across the supply chain.”
