project44 Takes Over GateHouse to Claim “World’s Largest Visibility Platform”

6th December 2018

US-based transport logistics software specialist project44 has taken over GateHouse Logistics, the Denmark-based visibility platform provider. They now claim to offer the largest visibility platform across North America and Europe, and say they are accelerating development of future global visibility offerings.

project44 describes itself as the world’s leading Advanced Visibility Platform for shippers and third-party logistics firms – providing a “scalable, secure, cloud-based platform that connects, automates and provides visibility into key transportation processes to accelerate insights and drive better decisions”. The project44 network now boasts more than 175,000 capacity providers, more than 550 telematics data partnerships and integrations with all major transportation management systems (TMS), such as SAP, Oracle and JDA. All integrations are connected via machine-to-machine communications for industry-leading data accuracy, quality and refresh speeds.

“Many global businesses – from retailers to manufacturers – are looking for ways to digitally transform their supply chains and create new business value,” said Jett McCandless, CEO and founder of project44. “We partnered with GateHouse Logistics earlier this year because they offer the largest European capacity provider network, share our commitment to high-fidelity data and have a ‘customer first’ mentality. By bringing our companies together permanently, we have created the first ever single-pane view into all our customers’ global shipments – an unmatched value.”

Gatehouse’s platform will immediately integrate into the project44 version.
