E2open Achieves Interoperability Certification on the Catena-X Network

Support of the new automotive standard for multi-tier supply chain manufacturing processes provides future-proof benefits for e2open clients

AMSTERDAM – April 24, 2024E2open Parent Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ETWO), the connected supply chain SaaS platform with the largest multi-enterprise network, today announces its Catena-X certification achievement, furthering its commitment as a supply chain management leader in the automotive industry. Catena-X is an open data ecosystem and consortium for the automotive industry designed to create data chains that will enhance the value chains of its participants. E2open is the first supply chain software provider to be certified outside of the founding Catena-X members.
The certification allows e2open to seamlessly connect automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to the Catena-X network to streamline business processes across sub-tier suppliers. Additionally, the certification allows lower-tier suppliers to share vital manufacturing, quality, and capacity data with their upstream customers.

The Catena-X standard gives manufacturers granular control over data sharing with and between suppliers in a way that preserves data sovereignty. The multi-tier nature of the Catena-X standard aligns perfectly with e2open’s multi-tier collaboration capabilities, particularly in the supply network discovery, outsourced manufacturing, and demand and capacity management spaces – giving automotive OEMs looking to map their multi-tier supply chains the tools to do so in an industry-standard way. In addition, the initiative helps companies increase supply chain transparency, supporting improved sustainability and human rights standards.

“Many companies struggle to understand hidden risks in their multi-tier supply chains, which often extend far beyond direct suppliers, that can impact operations and increase liability,” said Pawan Joshi, EVP products and strategy at e2open. “The standard provides an approach to temporarily establish connections across multiple tiers of suppliers in a novel way that preserves data sovereignty. E2open’s applications then orchestrate workflows between these parties for a variety of use cases, such as reducing the time and cost of recalls, facilitating circularity programs like digital passports of electric vehicle (EV) batteries, and complying with carbon emissions regulations and reporting requirements. E2open’s Catena-X certification reinforces our commitment to the automotive industry and our goal of being the supply chain partner of choice by offering a flexible network platform that meets today’s needs and grows with clients in this constantly evolving landscape – future-proofing investments by always staying at the forefront.”

Charting Course Through Trade Compliance and ESG Waves in 2024

When I wrote about the global trade trends taking shape at the beginning of the year, I couldn’t have anticipated the extent and impact of how the trade compliance landscape would unfold. A lot has happened in the past six months, with cross-border trade dynamics significantly influenced by a complex interplay of reciprocal sanctions, the ongoing US-China trade war, stringent enforcement against forced labor, and evolving environmental regulations.

Grilling Season: How Logistics Visibility Helps the Food and Beverage Industry Deliver

Summer is right around the corner, and that means weekends and holidays filled with social activities. A trio of federal holidays in the U.S. (Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day) allows us to host or attend parties with our friends and family. Parents pile the kids into the car to take road trips, invite people over for cookouts in the warm weather, or head to a nearby beach or campground with coolers in hand. Maybe more so than any other season, it seems like summer is the time for food and beverages to be the stars of the show.
