Loadsmart Expands Strategic Partnership with e2open

Clients can move freight more efficiently to provide exceptional service in volatile market conditions

AUSTIN, Texas – April 12, 2023 – E2open Parent Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ETWO), the connected supply chain SaaS platform with the largest multi-enterprise network, announces an expanded partnership with Loadsmart, allowing shipper clients to access instant pricing on any lane from Loadsmart’s network of more than 45,000 carrier partners without leaving e2open’s Transportation Management (TMS) application.

Loadsmart is now included in e2open’s Carrier Highlight innovation, which offers shippers access to featured transportation providers’ rates and capacity when favorable. The enhancement gives clients a streamlined and automated way to identify cost-saving opportunities while getting reliable service from a preferred e2open carrier partner showcased within the application. The shipper can seamlessly onboard Loadsmart to benefit from the currently highlighted cost savings and access Loadsmart as a new carrier partner for future savings opportunities.

With API connectivity in e2open Carrier Marketplace, pricing comparisons happen instantly, enabling shippers to take immediate action. In addition, carriers in the network are afforded exposure to more shippers. As part of the Carrier Highlight workflow, e2open TMS users are presented with optimal transportation options dynamically during load planning, when there is an opportunity to tender the shipment at a lower cost.

“Since its inception, Loadsmart has delivered value to its shipper clients by entering strategic partnerships with companies committed to being leaders in their space. Our expanded partnership with e2open allows all shippers to react quickly to market dynamics and move freight reliably and sustainably at an optimal cost—all from within the e2open TMS. We look forward to continuing to push the frontier of end-to-end freight management and to empower our clients further as they progress their supply chains toward digital maturity,” said Felipe Capella, CEO at Loadsmart.

Loadsmart has been an e2open strategic partner since 2020; the expanded partnership provides e2open clients with access to real-time rates across their entire transportation network with the opportunity to achieve savings in all modes.

“We formed our partnership with Loadsmart around a shared ambition to advance transportation management and seamlessly connect logistics to larger enterprise supply chain strategies,” said Peter Hantman, COO at e2open. “In this next phase of our partnership, clients will be able to simplify rating complexity across their entire transportation network and take advantage of the best rates per shipment to move goods cost-effectively and deliver reliably on customer commitments.”

Five Supply Chain Trends Shaping the Future of Sourcing, Trade, and Logistics, Pt.1

For decades, China has represented the pinnacle of global trade. As companies around the world began offshoring manufacturing to China to cut costs, the country emerged as an international export leader. However, recent trade patterns signal a changing tide in global supply chain dynamics. In 2023, Mexico became the US’s top trader, outpacing China for the first time in 20 years. The shift reflects an emerging trend called nearshoring, where companies bring production hubs closer to their main markets. Doing so helps cut supply chain costs, reduce logistical hurdles, and swiftly respond to changing market conditions and consumer demand. During the first three quarters of 2023, foreign companies invested 47 percent more in nearshoring efforts in Mexico, mostly focused on the auto sector.
