Partnership optimizes international freight forwarder’s transportation operations across air, ocean, and rail services in 45 countries
AUSTIN, Texas – Oct. 31, 2023 – E2open Parent Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ETWO), the connected supply chain SaaS platform with the largest multi-enterprise network, announces that Scan Global Logistics (SGL), a global freight forwarder, has selected e2open’s cloud-based Transportation Management to simplify its application landscape and provide the freight forwarder with a single, integrated platform to manage each facet of its transportation operations across 160 locations.
As part of a multi-year agreement, the e2open solution will allow SGL to optimize operations across multiple modes of transportation and expansive geography and help reduce freight and operational costs, increase transportation efficiency, and enhance the end-user and end-customer experience. In addition to seeking a solution provider with a robust technology roadmap capable of scaling with SGL’s ambitious growth plans, it was essential to the freight forwarder that the provider also supports the technology implementation with in-house customer success teams.
“Freight forwarders like SGL are having to rethink their operating models as they navigate an increasingly complex, and often unpredictable, transportation market,” said Ron Kubera, e2open’s strategic sector president. “With e2open Transportation Management, SGL will now have a single, integrated platform to connect its vast carrier network and geographic footprint to simplify these complexities and prepare for future growth. We are delighted that SGL has selected e2open as its strategic partner to provide our best-in-class Transportation Management solution, and we are looking forward to raising the bar together for efficiency and customer service in the freight forwarding industry.”
“The e2open roadmap for Transportation Management for freight forwarders and the wider offerings provided by the platform will support the ambitious growth planned for SGL in both the short and long term,” said Morton Wagner, CIO of SGL. “There has been an open and honest dialogue with the e2open account and project teams from the start. The quality and commitment of the resources dedicated to SGL’s implementation of e2open Transportation Management and the cultural fit between e2open and SGL was a decisive factor in the decision to partner with e2open in what will be the single largest and most important IT project in SGL’s history.”
E2open’s modern, cloud-based platform provides SGL with enhanced functionality to manage multimode logistics in all regions in a single application. Over the long-term partnership, e2open will support SGL’s goals to deploy a more strategic, global transportation strategy and offer customers across industries and locations the most comprehensive and convenient shipping solutions.
