Project44-Technology-Logistic Providers

Based in Chicago, project44 provides an Advanced Visibility Platform for shippers and logistics service providers. Connected to thousands of carriers worldwide, project44 supports all transportation modes and shipping types, including Parcel, Final-Mile, Less-than-Truckload, Volume Less-than-Truckload, Truckload, Rail, Intermodal, and Ocean.

To deliver high-quality data and analysis for all of these stakeholders, project44 has built real-time connections between its Advanced Visibility Platform and thousands of carriers worldwide, using direct APIs (Application Programming Interfaces), multiple telematic devices and ELDs (Electronic Logging Devices). As a result, the project44 platform can ingest, cleanse and normalize high-quality data from a wide network of global carriers.

Project44’s Network Management Center facilitates complete carrier compliance with the platform, generating a quicker Return on Investment (ROI) for all stakeholders, a process that project44 describes as “Rapid Onboarding.”
