Update adds parcel shipment planning and execution capabilities to E2open’s Transportation Management suite

AUSTIN, Texas – Aug. 21, 2019 – E2open, the one place in the cloud to run your supply chain, today announced the release of its third quarter technology update, adding new tools and efficiencies across its entire network and intelligent application suite. From Demand Sensing to Supply Management, and Business Planning to Global Trade Management, E2open continues to improve its best in class intelligent applications for end-to-end supply chain management. This update also includes improved interoperability with customer’s on-premise systems as well as their partners via E2open’s network – the largest global supply chain network. 

New to the E2open platform is the ability to plan and execute parcel shipments right from within Transportation Management, allowing users to select appropriate carrier and service for their parcel shipments, print parcel labels and track shipments on the activity stream.

“Our Q3 update has improvements across our entire product portfolio. The new parcel shipment solution within our Logistics suite is further evidence of the continued integration and expansion of the broader E2open intelligent application suite and platform,” said Pawan Joshi, executive vice president of product management and strategy at E2open. “We continue to expand our network of partners as well as enhance our capabilities to connect to our customer’s systems. At E2open, we’re building the most complete, end-to-end supply chain management system in the industry, and today’s updates and expanded capabilities further support our customers in running their most efficient supply chain.” 

Additional advancements to E2open’s Intelligent Applications include:
