KEY QUOTES OF Eric Fullerton
“If, by using us, you can save a lot of paper with some of our APLs and LTL offerings – that’s nice, but it’s actually about expanded visibility, such as emissions for a given asset. We are now working on ocean and road vehicles to ensure sustainability, these emissions that are visible for a separate shipment. ”
“In fact, we were approached by Google to provide what I think is one of the key building blocks of the digital double for the supply chain – through ERP, TMS and [enhanced] visibility – to solve the supply chain problems we are experiencing today. ”
“What we are implementing this year is a completely new single platform for all our acquisitions over the past year and a half. Then the data becomes even more convincing for solving things like, for example, not only if something comes running somewhere, but also the likelihood that it will be delayed. ”
