ClearMetal, a provider of Continuous Delivery Experience for Supply Chain and Logistics solutions, announced the launch of its transformational CDX Platform 2.0. This Software-as-a-Service platform uses patent-pending data science and machine learning. This launch adds a number of new collaboration and planning capabilities across multiple transportation modes beyond ocean freight, all which drive ROI for supplier, manufacturer and retailer supply chains.
ClearMetal’s CDX Platform 2.0 uses a continuous methodology to learn, adjust and drive improvement in freight delivery and experience for customers by using proprietary machine learning to cross-reference inputs and canonicalize supply chain data. This technology enables businesses to make intelligent inventory and customer decisions based on continuously live, trustworthy data.
“The second version of ClearMetal’s CDX Platform allows companies like us to give our customers the collaborative experience they now expect but are not able to receive from competition,” said to Parsan Chand, VP of Global Supply Chain of The Lenzing Group AG. “With shipments of our wood-based natural fiber products being transported around the world and into multiple different industries, ClearMetal’s CDX Platform allows us to intelligently adapt plans ‘on the fly.’ We can now overcome the challenges associated with the schedule reliability of the shipping industry, thereby increasing speed to market, reducing costs and inventory for our downstream value chain partners, and complementing our sustainability strategy.”
CDX Platform 2.0 includes a number of new features including enhanced customer portal features, truck and rail support and continuous planning capabilities.
“Customer expectations of both delivery and experience have never been higher. CDX focuses on enabling companies to give customers an ‘Amazon-like’ digital B2B experience in global freight transportation while delivering products in a timely and predictable manner. In short, a continuous (versus static) methodology finally enables supply chains to dynamically adapt in real-time to today’s ever-changing customer expectations. The largest shippers equip themselves with a CDX strategy in order to transform,” said Adam Compain, CEO of ClearMetal.
ClearMetal, Inc., based in San Francisco CA (USA), is a leader in the Continuous Delivery Experience (CDX), enabling supply chain organizations to optimize logistics and provide their customers with easy access to trusted, live information about their shipments. The ClearMetal CDX Platform uses proprietary machine learning algorithms to break free from static-visibility paradigms and make sense of supply chain data. ClearMetal was founded by top software engineers, data scientists, and operations researchers from Stanford University, Google, and Silicon Valley and is funded by Eclipse Ventures, Prelude Ventures, Innovation Endeavors, NEA, SAP.io, Prologis Ventures, PSA Unboxed, DCLI, and the founders of GT Nexus, Navis, and Uber Freight.
