Tive Launches Collaborative Supply Chain Visibility Partner Program
BOSTON, MA & CHICAGO, IL - Sometimes the key to evolution and innovation is the melding of ideas. Tive, an industry leader in supply chain visibility, recently announced that it would be combining its knowledge with that of project44 to launch one of the industry's first collaborative supply chain visibility partner programs, Open Visibility Network.
"We see a logistics world where collaboration between shippers, LSPs, and customers will be the norm," said Krenar Komoni, Founder and CEO of Tive. "There are amazing visibility platforms and TMS solutions out there that meet many customers' needs, and now is the time to start an open, collaborative platform so every customer can get the visibility that they deserve."
Serving as one of the crucial first steps in connecting shippers, logistics service providers (LSPs), brokers, and customers through its use of collaborative data sharing, the Open Visibility Network will add in-transit visibility outside of what is available in the current market, according to a press release.
In the past, supply chain visibility providers have generally worked independently, using limited data sets created from their own customers. In collaborating, both Tive and project44 will be able to share their open platforms to enable the collection and sharing of vital shipment data. Through the partnership, providers and customers will be able to collaborate with instant access to data from the full network of supply chain visibility providers.
"Our aim at project44 is to create a new level of trust and predictability in transportation and logistics, and we can't do that alone. This collaboration with Tive will bring a new level of customer service to shipping," said Jett McCandless, Founder and CEO of project44. "The partner program exponentially increases the mutual flow of data to our cloud-based platforms, right out of the gate, and there's room to expand with new partners. We are unlocking the value of supply chain collaboration in an entirely new and exciting way."
Michael Kokal, President of KODIS, which is a partner to Tive, commented on how this solution has supported company growth.
"KODIS understands that valuable relationships are built on quality experiences for the customer, carrier, warehouse, and consignee," said Kokal. "Working with project44 and Tive has made onboarding easy for us, and it has ensured that each stakeholder receives the best insights, that realistic expectations are provided, and that we deliver, every time."
