Cary, N.C. – MercuryGate International, Inc., a leader in Transportation Management System (TMS) Solutions, welcomes Schneider as a Logistics Integrator (LI) partner. The Logistics Integrator Program is 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.
Under the LI Program, shippers of all sizes can leverage the capabilities and broad range of services provided by Schneider’s Logistics division, including TMS design, testing and training. Schneider can support integration of various platforms into the TMS to help ease the burden on a shipper’s IT teams; augmenting a shipper’s operations with technology and its expert services, people and process. Not only can Schneider set up the TMS for a shipper, it can operate the technology for various customers and create scalable, simplified and personally tailored solutions guaranteed to maximize the investment value in logistics services.
Because Schneider also operates the technology, it knows how to derive the most value and can apply best practices from a variety of solutions.
“Schneider Logistics has a strategic relationship with MercuryGate spanning over eight years,” said Erin Van Zeeland, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Logistics Services at Schneider. “We leverage our deep understanding of the technology, along with best-in-class processes, driven by Schneider Innovation. Our proven hands-on expertise helps avoid any new tool implementation pitfalls – accelerating the timetable to onboard and to begin achieving the ROI our customers realize.”
“By joining the MercuryGate Logistics Integrator Program, Schneider’s shippers will now have easier access to some of the industry’s best, asset-based connected supply chain technology and services to drive process improvement and data consistency while reducing cost” said Joe Juliano, CEO of MercuryGate International, Inc.
