Both. To operate an efficient, customer-centric supply chain you need your physical logistics and technology to work hand in hand. Our software is built and stress tested by logistics professionals to meet the needs of even the most complex supply chains, so that you get full visibility and rapid optimization across your entire supply chain from one platform. Even better, you get these benefits no matter whether you use our logistics or bring your own.
Cloud Supply Chain is a single solution that provides you with everything you need to manage and scale a customer-centric supply chain. It combines all of the physical logistics - freight, warehousing, fulfillment - with the integrated software that you need to manage your supply chain from a single platform. It’s kind of like Cloud Computing. You integrate with a provider, like Amazon Web Services, once and you get elastic capacity to as much computing power as you need as you grow. Cloud Supply Chain delivers the same promise for logistics. You integrate once and you get elastic scale across Freight, Warehousing, and Fulfillment as you grow coupled with the software you need to orchestrate and manage it all.
