KEY QUOTES FROM ERIC FULLERTON


“If, by using us, you can save a lot of paper with some of our APIs and LTL offerings – that’s nice, but it’s actually about extended visibility, like emissions for a given asset. Right now we’re working on ocean and over-the-road transportation to provide that sustainability, that emission visibly for an individual shipment.”

“We were actually approached by Google to provide what I would think of is one of the key building blocks of a digital twin for the supply chain – through ERP, TMS, and [enhanced] visibility – to solve the supply chain challenges that we’re experiencing today.”

“As we continue to unify our platform from our recent acquisitions, the data becomes more compelling. We shift from when a shipment is going to arrive to the likelihood of it being delayed and how to adjust accordingly.”
