Taps software providers to provide supply and demand chain visibility

Philadelphia, PA Ñ February 28, 2003 Ñ Stonepath Group this week announced it has initiated the roll-out of its new operating system, Tech-Logis (Technology in Logistics), an offering that the provider said would unite StonepathÕs current logistics operations with selections from global logistics and transportation software providers.

After searching the market, Stonepath selected supply chain software providers G-Log and Yantra to complement its current technology with transportation, warehouse management and order fulfillment capabilities. The new system, according to Stonepath, will enhance operational capabilities and give customers access to their entire supply chains through a single user interface, which is from BEA Systems.

ÒOur stated goal has always been to integrate the most innovative technologies into our existing technology platforms,Ó remarked Dennis Pelino, chairman and CEO of Stonepath Group. ÒTechnology is a key element of our basic strategy. We are using it to create an operating environment dedicated to the enhancement of all aspects of our business, from customer service to workflow analysis, which allows visibility of key cost pressure points for our customers and ourselves.Ó He added that Tech-Logis is expected to help the company streamline its operations and drive productivity.

StonepathÕs new fulfillment and order management capabilities, powered by YantraÕs Distributed Order Management and Yantra Warehouse Management, will provide accurate supply chain information, according to the company. It also has plans to use Yantra software solutions to improve its order fulfillment and warehouse management capabilities. Through G-Log, Stonepath will provide a global enterprise logistics solution that includes optimization, transportation execution and an alert tracking function on a Web-native architecture.
