BluJay Solutions Unveils Global Trade Network

Kewill and LeanLogistics have announced their rebranding as BluJay Solutions, and, in conjunction, have unveiled the BluJay Global Trade Network - a model that goes beyond automation to help organizations harness the full power of the global supply chain ecosystem.

The supply chain software and services company says it delivers the expertise, breadth of cloud-based software applications and end-to-end collaborative visibility that organizations need to make speed a competitive weapon and optimize their future in the global economy.

“It’s no longer just about multi-modal, omni-channel and booking tools — we’re moving toward a new era of business where global trade shifts to the forefront, and supply chain becomes today’s battleground,” said Doug Braun, CEO of BluJay Solutions.

The new brand reflects the company’s ability to help customers achieve greater velocity of global trade and operate at the speed of business — even in the face of dynamic market forces and fluctuations in customer demand, BluJay says. With more than 40,000 carriers, shippers, forwarders, suppliers and LSPs, the BluJay Global Trade Network is creating a network that delivers the benefits of universal connectivity among participants.

“Traditional supply chain solutions focused on optimization from the point of view of an individual company. But as companies moved to more outsourcing and increasing reliance on global supply chain partners, the traditional software architecture has become increasingly less relevant,” said Steve Banker, vice president of supply chain management at ARC Advisory Group. “A modern global trade network model gives companies access to multiple delivery options and carrier choices so they can quickly seize new opportunities and enjoy frictionless and more efficient movement of goods across any border.”

With BluJay, organizations can manage goods and services across an integrated global trade network; rapidly onboard services, carriers, customers and business units; and actively collaborate with trade participants to expedite trade logistics. BluJay captures all data streaming across the network, so that organizations can analyze and operationalize it to their advantage, the company says.

In December, Kewill completed the integration of LeanLogistics, which it acquired in May 2016, bringing together supply chain execution and global trade management in one comprehensive and integrated portfolio of logistics applications, analytics and services — all delivered through a scalable, multi-tenant cloud.
