New Integrations Accelerate Echo’s Ability to Deliver End-to-End
Visibility and Automation to Their Extensive Customer Base

CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–project44 announced today that Echo Global Logistics has integrated
project44’s modern SaaS solutions to fully automate the end-to-end
management of their Less-than-Truckload (LTL) and Volume LTL (VLTL)
shipments, with plans to extend those services to additional modes of
transportation via future integrations. Echo, a leading Third Party
Logistics Provider (3PL) continues to build out its best-in-class,
proprietary Transportation Management System (TMS), leveraging
project44’s API-based integration layer to achieve instant carrier
connectivity and next-generation data standardization.

“At Echo we strive to support growth and innovation by continually
improving the services and solutions we offer to our clients, and pursue
partners with a similar visionary focus,” says Doug Waggoner, Chairman
of the Board of Directors and CEO of Echo. “project44 delivers state of
the art automation and visibility solutions today, while also presenting
a roadmap for supply chain digitization that will help us become an even
more connected, innovative, and proactive provider in the future.”

With p44, Echo is able to improve its ability to provide clients with
transparent, real-time full shipment lifecycle data for all LTL and VLTL
transportation. More specifically, project44’s solutions will enable
Echo to tender shipments, access live end-to-end visibility, and receive
delivery documentation via a single, API-based integration—delivering
seamless interoperability between Echo’s capacity providers, technology
systems, and clients.

Integrating with modern solutions like project44 extends Echo’s ability
to deliver industry-leading client experiences, and best-in-class speed
to market. This will ultimately reduce their administrative costs while
increasing productivity, and advance their position as an innovative,
strategic partner with both their clients and carriers.

“project44 is an accelerator,” says Miles English, CIO at Echo Global
Logistics. “Their cloud-based architecture, focus on security,
guaranteed uptime, customer support, and onboarding efficiency rival
that of other leading iPaaS-providers (Integration Platform as a
Service). Yet, they also have the necessary deep domain knowledge
required to help us successfully address the complex challenges present
in today’s logistics networks and client’s supply chains.”

“Echo leads the industry by investing in innovative technologies that
efficiently deliver seamless and real-time transparency to their
clients,” says Jett McCandless, CEO and Founder of project44. “Their
selection of project44’s software solutions clearly demonstrates that
API-based technology is a competitive advantage, presenting a tremendous
opportunity to logistics providers who increase the capacity of their
own IT team by leveraging a best-in-class plug and play connectivity
network.”
