West Palm Beach, FL—July 15, 2015—Cloud Logistics, an innovator in software-as-a-service (SaaS) logistics and provider of next-generation transportation management systems (TMS), finished the first half of 2015 strongly, highlighted by the addition of 11 new customers across industries and geographies. One of the great appeals of the Cloud Logistics TMS is the ability for shippers to deploy the cloud-based solution rapidly and to begin seeing immediate return on investment. To that end, eight of the 11 new customers are already live with the software and quickly expanding their usage.
“We developed our solution with three main goals in mind,” said Mark Nix, chief executive officer of Cloud Logistics. “The software has to be simple to deploy, incredibly easy to use, and architected from the ground up to leverage modern cloud, mobile and social technologies. We are thrilled to have validation of this strategy by so many amazing companies.”
Customer success in 2015 spans a wide variety of industries, including leaders such SAPA Extrusions, Inc., M&G Duravent, a large furniture retailer and five different third-party logistics providers (3PLs). Two of the 3PLs deployed the Cloud Logistics solution across southern Africa. This includes Triton Express, one of the largest logistics providers in the region. Additionally, these 11 customers represent companies headquartered on four different continents, paving the way for international expansion in the future. These success stories prove that companies of any size can benefit from a cloud-based transportation solution—from a small 3PL to companies with revenues in excess of $5 billion.
Michael Mulqueen, a partner at JBF Consulting, commented, “Today, shippers and 3PLs are drawn to TMS technology for much different reasons than the early adopters. They are interested in process automation, trading partner connectivity and enhanced visibility into their freight operations. Additionally, they place a great emphasis on the overall usability of the application and quick time to value."
