CHICAGO —

Redwood Logistics (Redwood), one of the fastest-growing supply chain and logistics companies, is partnering with Freightos.com, an online global freight booking platform, enabling global shippers of all sizes to connect any Transportation Management System (TMS) to Freightos.com’s Freight-as-a-Service (FaaS) B2B network via a pre-built RedwoodConnect™ integration.   

Since January 2021, 94% of small- and medium-sized businesses (SMB) reported disruptions to their supply chain operations, including transit times nearly doubling and freight prices reaching record highs. To help importers and exporters navigate these challenging market conditions, Freightos.com’s FaaS delivers instant multimodal freight pricing and capacity from the largest selection of forwarders across the globe all via real-time API connections. RedwoodConnect™, Redwood’s proprietary, turnkey supply chain integration platform, will now feature FaaS through Freightos.com to provide customers with more control over global shipments.  

“Freight-as-a-Service is a game changer for our customers. It is revolutionizing the way our customers operate by providing an efficient and reliable method to confidently manage international shipments of all sizes from anywhere in the world,” said Eric Rempel, Redwood’s Chief Innovation Officer. “RedwoodConnect™ eliminates the need for tedious, drawn-out implementations by pre-integrating with all of our SaaS partners, allowing shippers to seamlessly mix-and-match partners and technologies into their own unique digital supply chain fingerprint.”    

RedwoodConnect™ streamlines even the most complex integration use cases, providing customers seamless access to Freightos.com’s freight booking platform to book and manage their shipments through any TMS or system of record. FaaS connects users to the world of freight through real-time API connections, delivering instant multimodal freight pricing and capacity via one platform.   

“Freight, which has become the main conversation in board rooms across the globe, remains mostly offline in a world where digitization is paramount,” said Ian Arroyo, Chief Commercial Officer, Freightos.com. “Together with Redwood, Freightos.com’s Freight-as-a-Service provides companies of all sizes digital access to a fast, streamlined shipping experience.”
