MercuryGate Launches Industry First – A Logistics Integrator Program Addresses Specific Shipper Requirements around Design, Delivery, Operation and Transfer of TMS Capabilities
Cary, N.C. – MercuryGate International, Inc., a leader in Transportation Management System (TMS) Solutions, announced today the launch of its Logistics Integrator Program, an innovative offering that combines the demonstrated power of MercuryGate’s TMS technology with the proven design, delivery and execution best practice capabilities of select, pre-approved logistics services providers (LSPs) that have demonstrated competence in meeting the evolving needs of shippers today.
Also being announced, Redwood Logistics is the first Logistics Integrator selected by MercuryGate under the new program. Shippers of all sizes are able to leverage the capabilities and broad range of services provided by Redwood, including TMS design, testing and training. Redwood is also able to support integration of various platforms into the TMS to help ease the burden on a shipper’s IT teams. Not only can Redwood set up the TMS for a shipper, they operate the technology for various customers and can create scalable, simplified, and personally tailored MercuryGate solutions guaranteed to maximize the value of their investment in logistics services. Because Redwood Logistics operates the technology themselves, they know how to derive the most value from it and can apply best practices from a variety of solutions.
“Many shippers are aware of the potential benefits of transportation management technology, but may be limited by the number or experience of internal resources available to facilitate the implementation process or optimize performance of a system once it is in place,” said Monica Wooden, CEO and Co-Founder of MercuryGate International, Inc.
With its Logistics Integrator Program, MercuryGate addresses this gap in the market through close collaboration with its most competent partners, expanding the breadth and depth of their joint offerings to empower companies of all sizes to realize the operational benefits made possible by advanced technology solutions. The program is designed for flexibility, ease-of-use and customization.
“One of the biggest challenges shippers have is to extract the most value from a TMS. Redwood is an expert in leveraging the tools and capabilities of the MercuryGate TMS for companies who are just embarking on the TMS journey or know they aren’t using the technology to the fullest potential,” said Al Toliver, Chief Logistics Officer at Redwood Logistics.
“It’s fantastic to see Redwood Logistics continually looking for ways for us to reduce our costs and increase value,” said Gail McHugh, Director of Technology and Supply Chain at KYB Americas Corporation. “It’s exactly what we’ve come to expect from them through the years. We’re already reviewing options to see where we can extend our MercuryGate platform even further.”
Additional MercuryGate Logistics Integrator Partners are expected to be added in the future. Partners that participate in the program will represent a cross-section of industry sectors and will be limited to those who both pass a certification and who show excellence in delivering on value in this new era where shippers require more visibility and control of their TMS solutions.
