MercuryGate CEO to Discuss Trends and Technology at Jump Start 2015
Cary, NC — MercuryGate International, a global provider of cloud-based transportation management solutions, announced today that Chief Executive Officer & Co-founder Monica B. Wooden will be a featured speaker at Jump Start, an annual logistics-industry conference hosted by SMC³. In a session titled In the Pipeline: Maximizing Supply Chain Efficiency Through Technology, Ms. Wooden will discuss the impact of capacity constraints on a global supply chain and the role technology plays in minimizing these effects. Jump Start 2015 is being held January 19-21 at the Loews Atlanta Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia.
SMC³, a long-time MercuryGate partner, provides companies with the information and analysis they need to develop more strategic carrier relationships, streamline transportation procurement, and improve operational efficiency. “With SMC3, our clients have access to a wealth of data about individual carriers, such as base rates, points of service, terminal contacts, and more,” said Wooden. “It’s hard enough for clients to gather this kind of information so it’s readily available; trying to keep it up to date is nearly impossible. The value of accurate pricing, of accurate contact details is hard to overestimate.”
