Introducing the Cloud Supply Chain: End-to-End Logistics Services Seamlessly Accessed and Operated Through a Cloud-Based Platform

Melissa Chi

Today we introduce the Stord Cloud Supply Chain, offering world-class end-to-end supply chain services vertically integrated through a singular pay-as-you-go software platform. This platform enables shippers and your supply chain partners across 3PLs, manufacturers, and transportation carriers to seamlessly manage the flow of goods across all sales and fulfillment channels, with minimal impact to your existing technology and processes.

Brands today are piecing together inflexible logistics partners with long contracts, RFPs and limited software capabilities with third-party integrators and multiple software tools, to create their own fragile supply chain and technology stacks. They’re left without the agility needed to keep up with their changing customer demands, and without the visibility to make data-driven decisions in their supply chains. 

There’s a better solution: tapping into a cloud that offers superior logistics and software, already connected. Stord has built the supply chain cloud to eliminate the need for expensive infrastructure, multiple software integrations and long timelines by wrapping up all the logistics services and technology tools needed for an end-to-end supply chain in one pre-integrated cloud platform.   

Shippers no longer need to devote long lead times to procuring, launching, and managing new warehouses and carriers, or commit IT resources to ensuring system capability for data transfers. Stord’s cloud-based software streamlines this activity with a central one-time connection to the shippers’ ERP or sales channels that extends across our network of 500+ warehouses, 30+ fulfillment centers and 20,000+ carriers.

With the Cloud Supply Chain, you can: 

Manage the entire order-to-delivery cycle with seamless connectivity

Omnichannel shippers managing the flow of goods across e-commerce platforms, ERP systems, and fulfillment locations no longer need to rely on multiple integration points, eliminating the need to source one-to-one solutions and significantly reducing launch timelines. 

The supply chain cloud is built to accommodate various operating processes and methods, allowing for all supply chain activities, typically conducted across disparate systems, to be seamlessly connected in one platform. From partner communication to sophisticated order management, from inventory management to SKU placement optimization and more, our platform is designed to centralize your key supply chain activities. 

Stord’s platform is agnostic to legacy systems and data sources. We offer simple integrations across ERP systems, e-commerce sites, WMSs, TMSs, parcel shipment facilitators, and more, utilizing your preferred order management method, so you can control your entire supply chain from one platform, not just receive unactionable reports on it.

Standardize and normalize data across software systems

Connect to the supply chain cloud once with data formats your systems already use and our team handles the rest, including future third-party integration needs and data mapping normalization.

Send data reports customized to the frequency and needs of each team managing orders, inventory, and customers, reducing expenses and losses that result from inaccurate data.

Stord ensures that all your data is accurately captured, mapped and transmitted, and provides best practices and industry expertise recommendations where needed. 

Convert comprehensive visibility into actionable insights

Using the cloud supply chain dashboard, capture supply chain activity across your entire omnichannel footprint from customer order capture, multi-site inventory management, fulfillment operations and end customer delivery.

Enable your team of supply chain planners, inventory planners, merchandise buyers, operations specialists and customer care representatives with the end-to-end visibility and data they need to make decisions that drive key performance: improving fulfillment speed, reducing supply chain operating costs, optimizing inventory locations, and more. 

Scale on-demand with access to our logistics network

Already used by leading brands and Fortune 500 companies such as Advance Auto Parts, Crystal Geyser, Dollar General, Tyson Foods and more, the Stord Cloud Supply Chain offers access to our end-to-end logistics network with pay-as-you-go pricing and infinite scalability. From booking a new freight shipment, to launching a new warehouse, or testing innovative distribution models like micro-fulfillment centers, our network is designed to get your products closer to your customers and ensure you out-deliver the competition.
