Challenge: A U.S. multinational had 14 manufacturing sites in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). Each site booked transportation using a carrier-specific terminal and website, which resulted in a multitude of site-specific and carrier-specific shipping systems. Consequently, the company lacked centralized visibility for shipment movements and transportation spend.

Speed. Flexibility. Simplicity. It’s no wonder that shippers and carriers love drop and hook. In fact, the majority of US Fortune 500 shipments are sent through preloaded drop trailers.
The challenge with drop has been one of scale. Traditional drop services are limited to specific lanes and regions, and when demand surges, they can’t flex up to accommodate the additional volume.
In 2017, Convoy Go became the first drop-and-hook service that let carriers of all sizes, including owner-operators, haul power-only loads. This unique, modern approach to drop offered shippers flexible, nationwide capacity with the reliability they’d come to expect from asset-based carriers.
Over the last three years, technological advancements have further differentiated modern drop-and-hook services like Convoy Go. These services provide unmatched scale, flexibility, and visibility through the use of machine learning and automation.

This year has been transformational for supply chains. Many topics that were top of mind yesterday have now been almost forgotten due to rapidly changing priorities. One topic, however, remains constant: sustainability.
Some of the world's largest and most innovative companies embrace sustainability and corporate responsibility across their organizations and value chains. But companies often measure and manage their sustainability performance with – at best – inaccurate data. This means that any improvement may be a statistical artifact.
Join AWS, HERE Technologies and our guest speaker from Bosch to discover how real-time data and location technology can help you build a more sustainable and efficient supply chain.
Watch the webinar and learn how to:
1) Leverage reliable data to measure and improve your CO2 footprint
2) Use the power of location to do better what-if analyses
3) Track the performance of your logistics vendors to drive SLA improvement.
