Combination brings complementary cloud-based solution and global multi-carrier e-commerce capabilities to e2open’s networked, end-to-end supply chain operating platform

AUSTIN, Texas – March 3, 2022 – e2open Parent Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ETWO), a leading network-based provider of a cloud-based, mission-critical, end-to-end supply chain management platform, has acquired Logistyx Technologies, a leader in global parcel and e-commerce shipping and fulfillment technology.

With the combination, e2open enhances its global footprint for multi-carrier e-commerce shipment management, offering companies a complete range of shipping capabilities needed to scale and respond to growing market needs.

“We are excited to welcome Logistyx Technologies’ team, clients, and capabilities to e2open,” said Michael Farlekas, chief executive officer at e2open. “The demand for e-commerce shipping capabilities continues to grow as companies look for more flexible and cost-effective ways to deliver products to consumers. This combination makes e2open the most comprehensive and integrated shipping solution provider, which covers all shipping modes including ocean, air, road, rail, and parcel, and is powered by a global network of carriers and logistics service providers. Logistyx is complementary to e2open’s existing platform, enabling e2open’s world-class clients to orchestrate their supply chains from demand to fulfilment, to supply.”

“The Logistyx team is thrilled to combine with e2open to enable more companies to ship smarter and benefit from the largest supply chain platform and network available,” said Geoffrey Finlay, chief executive officer at Logistyx. “We provide our customers, which include top retailers, manufacturers and logistics providers, the automation, visibility and flexibility needed to simplify global fulfillment and compete in an omnichannel world – all within a one-stop, connected platform.”

Compelling strategic benefits to accelerate growth

The Logistyx combination with e2open accelerates subscription revenue growth and unlocks strategic benefits for clients, including:

  • Increased reach as a global leader in transportation management for parcel shipping: Logistyx’s global parcel system augments e2open’s direct-to-consumer e-commerce offerings, creating a complete global footprint for multi-carrier parcel management.
  • Enhanced global parcel carrier network: The combination adds a carrier library of over 550 global carrier integrations including UPS, FedEx, DHL and USPS, to e2open’s leading network. The solution manages the carrier certification process to keep clients in compliance, while making it easier to compare and review spot rate options, which is critical in a capacity-constrained environment.
  • Expanded client base: e2open’s client base will be enhanced by Logistyx’s strong global enterprise clients, which include many of the world’s leading retailers, manufacturers, and carriers.
  • Augmented product offerings: Logistyx’s clients will benefit from a combined portfolio that will not only expand shipping modes beyond parcel, but also enhance upstream capabilities to better orchestrate manufacturing, distribution, channel and trade operations.
