Transwide has a long standing track record in online services to the transport & logistics industry. Their commitment provides the support we need for our global clients, said Monica Wooden, MercuryGate CEO. We are strong in North America and now our TMS will be available to the rest of the world.
Adrian Gonzalez, Director Logistics Executive Council for the ARC Advisory Group commented, The on demand or software-as-a-service deployment model continues to gain traction in the TMS market, due to its lower upfront costs and faster time-to-value. However, most solution providers have achieved critical mass, in terms of clients and trading partner connections, in only a single country or geographic region. This partnership between MercuryGate and Transwide, therefore, lays the foundation for creating a more global on demand TMS solution and connectivity network. The combination of MercuryGates capabilities for logistics service providers (LSPs) and optimization tools with Transwides extensive network of European carriers and execution functionality should bring enhanced value to clients if integrated successfully.
