Paris, February 19, 2019: Gartner, the world’s leading research and advisory company, and creators of the “Magic Quadrant”, recently recognized Shippeo as a Representative Vendor in their November 2018 Market Guide for Real-Time Visibility Providers. According to the report, “visibility is a core part of logistics and transportation technology and plays a complementary function to transportation management, warehouse management, yard management, and fleet management.”
According to Gartner’s 2017 Supply Chain Technology User Wants and Needs Survey, visibility ranks as the highest priority initiative in supply chain. According to Gartner, "A lack of visibility creates internal and external inefficiencies in warehousing, fleet, yard, and transportation operations both inbound and outbound, and leads to an increase in transportation costs (e.g., carrier waiting times, customer fines).
Shippeo, the European leader in supply chain visibility, gives shippers, carriers, and customers instant access to predictive and real-time information of every delivery. Shippeo's proprietary, machine-learning ETA algorithm accurately calculates arrival times allowing shippers to quickly and accurately anticipate problems, proactively alert end-customers, and efficiently manage exception to mitigate their impact. Founded in 2014, Shippeo tracks more than 3 million loads per year throughout Europe for market-leading customers such as Faurecia, Saint-Gobain, Intermarché, and Leroy Merlin, and connects to 68,000+ carriers in more than 20 countries.
"We are very proud and excited to be recognized by Gartner as a Representative Vendor in Real-Time Visibility," mentions Pierre Khoury, CEO and cofounder at Shippeo. "At Shippeo, we are increasingly meeting companies who are seeking to have predictive visibility into their supply chain operations, in order to deliver exceptional customer service, achieve operational excellence, and boost team productivity."
