Two Logistyx Execs Named 2021 Pros to Know by Supply & Demand Chain Executive

Logistyx Technologies President Ken Fleming and Chief Operating Officer Dipti Gupta have each been named a 2021 Pro to Know by Supply & Demand Chain Executive. This marks the third year in a row that Fleming has been recognized with this honor.

Ken and Dipti have been instrumental in helping Logistyx clients proactively remodel their supply chains around e-commerce, accelerated by the explosive growth in online shopping. Empowering shippers to leverage Logistyx’s cloud technology to tap into carriers and supply chain data has enhanced productivity, improved customer service, and decreased transportation spend in a time when organizations seek to optimize their parcel shipping operations to stay competitive.

As the events of 2020 spurred unprecedented supply chain disruptions, Ken and Dipti’s leadership spearheaded the efforts of the full Logistyx team to:

  • Complete more than 100 enterprise-caliber sales
  • Help clients scale operations to efficiently ship as many as 300,000 parcels/day from a single distribution center, choosing the best carrier service for each parcel based on cost, delivery deadline, and carrier service reliability
  • Assist clients in migrating their shipping operations to the cloud to improve agility to fulfill orders in this unique landscape
  • Extend the intelligent parcel management operations of many clients to minimize the rising costs and disruptions associated with a growing volume of e-commerce returns
  • Help clients enable ship-from-store capabilities as in-store shopping paused and e-commerce fulfillment demands soared
  • Scale clients’ operations to ship more parcels to meet growing demand since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, by as much as 100% for some

The Pros to Know list recognizes outstanding executives whose accomplishments offer a roadmap for other leaders looking to leverage supply chains for a competitive advantage. This year’s list includes individuals and teams from software and service providers, consultancies and academia, trucking and transportation firms, professional development agencies, sourcing and procurement divisions, and more, all of whom have helped supply chain clients and the supply chain community at large prepare to meet many of today’s – and tomorrow’s – challenges.

Congratulations to Dipti and Ken on this well-earned recognition!

 

Logistyx Technologies Shortlisted for 2020 SaaS Awards

Logistyx was recently named a finalist in the 2020 Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) Awards program in the “Best SaaS for Shipping, Inventory or Vehicle Logistics” category. Now in its fifth year, the international SaaS Awards program focuses on recognizing excellence and innovation in software solutions.

Head of operations for the SaaS Awards, James Williams, said: “Software-as-a-service’s force for positive disruption never seems to abate, with seemingly unending solutions for modern business. This year is of course a special case, with SaaS not only at the forefront of remodeling existing business processes, but also agilely responding with pioneering solutions to unavoidable global disruptions. Indeed, SaaS technologies are now celebrated as providing new and inventive ways for organizations to perform what might have once seemed simple tasks in a changing international landscape. From fulfilling orders to arranging meetings, SaaS technologies are more important than ever.”

ebook logistyx future-proofing-supply-chainWhen inevitable supply chain disruptions (such as the COVID-19 outbreak) occur, Logistyx TME, a SaaS-based transportation management solution for global parcel shipping, is a lifeline to shippers and logistics service providers seeking to rapidly increase their available shipping options. A cloud TMS for parcel shipping provides shippers and logistics service providers the ability to quickly onboard, leverage, and optimize multiple carrier services – critical functionality when suddenly pivoting to a ship-from-store model, for example, or when pulling local courier services into the transportation mix to maintain on-time delivery rates. Furthermore, it can provide the data and analytics necessary to understand where logistics performance is sub-par and uncover opportunities to increase performance and savings.

Logistyx TME adds value to a supply chain in several ways. It automatically selects the right carrier service for each order according to carrier contracts and business rules; creates or acquires the tracking, labels, and documents; monitors delivery events and automates event exception workflows; manages the manifest and end-of-day processes; and analyzes carrier performance.

Utilizing Logistyx TME increases agility and transcends supply chain boundaries, especially during current and future supply chain disruptions, providing an additional return on investment.

All these capabilities combined create an innovative, all-in-one SaaS-based TMS that help customers consistently achieve on-time delivery at the optimal cost, which helped contribute to Logistyx’s recent honor on the 2020 SaaS Awards shortlist.

The final category winners for the 2020 SaaS Awards will be announced August 25. To learn more about this awards program and view the full shortlist, please visit: https://www.cloud-awards.com/2020-software-awards-shortlist/.

Congratulations to the entire team at Logistyx for this recognition!

Logistyx Recognized as Representative Vendor by Gartner

Logistyx Technologies was recognized for the second time by Gartner in the 2019 Market Guide for Multicarrier Parcel Management Solutions (Gartner subscription required). We believe this serves as a validation of our SaaS-based Transportation Management System (TMS) for parcel shipping and our highly valued global carrier services network and Business Intelligence capabilities.

According to the report, “although multicarrier parcel management is mature in some retail and distribution environments, many companies have large parcel operations in other areas of their businesses, or they are not traditional shippers but have a large parcel shipping need.”

In addition, “parcel and last-minute delivery continue to be the fastest-growing shipment segments due to increases in multichannel retail, e-commerce in B2B, and same-day delivery offerings.” Further, “most companies today operate in reactive execution mode for parcel and are missing great opportunities to optimize and consolidate their parcel shipping as well as shop for more varied rates and/or services.”

Translation: the debut of our innovative TMS for parcel shipping, TME, is intersecting with a significant need in the marketplace.

Supply Chain Brief Honors Brexit Analysis from Logistyx President Ken Fleming

The votes have been counted, and the readers of Supply Chain Brief have spoken.

Ken Fleming’s October 17 column for Logistics Viewpoints, “Brexit’s Profound Impact on Cross-Border Shipping,” has been voted the top industry blog post of 2019 and named the 2019 Supply Chain Brief MVP Winner as the Most Valuable Post in the Transport/Freight category.

Certificate_KenFleming_2019 Supply Chain Brief MVP Brexit

“Brexit is likely to hammer unprepared supply chain and logistics professionals and the customers expecting to receive their deliveries, but I’m encouraged that Supply Chain Brief readers echoed the importance of this monumental event and the impact it’s likely to have on global shipping, especially in and around the U.K. and Europe,” said Ken. “With several postponements, shippers still have an opportunity to prepare for the changes and ensure their parcel shipments stay compliant, on-time and under-budget. Our TMS for parcels will make the process seamless for Logistyx clients.”

By rapidly incorporating all regulatory and resulting carrier changes, Logistyx customers will stay compliant to avoid delays and fees. Keeping clients compliant with these type of changes is nothing new for Logistyx; it’s one of the company’s biggest benefits and why the industry’s top warehouse management systems and 92 of Internet Retailer’s Top 1000 choose our TMS for parcel. Brexit, however, stands to be one of the most impactful logistics hurdles of modern time. Country codes will change and trigger a wave of other changes. Export volume will skyrocket for many shippers. Currencies may fluctuate. This is just the tip of the iceberg.
