Companies partner to bring logistics solutions to the chemical market
Minneapolis — January 10, 2005 — Nistevo Corp., a collaborative logistics network for transportation management, today announced that ChemLogix LLC, a provider of integrated logistics solutions for the chemical industry, has selected the Nistevo Network.
The agreement enables ChemLogix to further automate its transportation management operations and to provide improved load visibility to its shipper customers.
Terms of the agreement will enable ChemLogix to deploy Nistevo's transportation management system (TMS) across multiple customers and enhance — as well as add — product and service offerings.
Additionally, the agreement enables Nistevo the opportunity to access organizations within the chemical market through a recognized partner with proven domain expertise.
Nistevo's Web-hosted TMS will replace ChemLogix's current client-server based TMS system. Through the Nistevo Network, ChemLogix will automate the company's existing logistics execution processes, including tendering, settlement, reporting and analysis. ChemLogix will also gain real-time tracking, visibility and alert notification for improved customer service.
"Nistevo's delivery as a network solution was a leading factor in our decision process," said Mike Skinner, vice president of transportation for ChemLogix. "Because our business operations are sensitive to changes in the marketplace, we need to adapt quickly in order to stay competitive. Nistevo's Network model, combined with lower deployment and maintenance costs, will allow us to be more proactive and efficient as a business in responding to changing economic conditions."
