Schneider, a provider of trucking, intermodal and logistics services, has collaborated with Blue Yonder to deliver a new carrier marketplace within the Blue Yonder transportation management solution. The new dynamic capacity pricing solution provides an integrated experience for shippers that pairs the power of dynamic pricing and visibility with the comprehensive solutions of Schneider’s portfolio, with its brokerage division leading the adoption.
Using the Blue Yonder dynamic pricing discovery solution, Schneider provides carriers and shippers near real-time matching of price and capacity, along with tracking, that is connected to Blue Yonder’s Luminate Platform. Powered by Microsoft Azure, Luminate Platform combines data from both internal and external sources to leverage both artificial intelligence and machine learning.
“Our collaboration with leading providers like Blue Yonder delivers big wins for shippers who are seeking a higher level of access, agility and transparency,” said Erin Van Zeeland, senior vice president and general manager of logistics services at Schneider. “What’s really exciting is that these real-time insights and automation are just the beginning of our work to help shippers better identify opportunities to save costs and enhance overall efficiency.
“We’re always looking for ways to yield ongoing ROI improvements for shippers through real-time visibility and automation,” said Terry Norton, vice president of 3PL Business Unit at Blue Yonder. “Collaborating with Schneider provides them with a best-in-class solution built on our Luminate Platform that leverages innovative technology with a transportation provider who can deliver dynamic pricing options along with needed capacity.”
