FreightWaves inks deal with Slync to advance supply chain and logistics markets

S

lync, an intelligent platform redefining multi-party interaction, automation and collaboration throughout the supply chain, has agreed to a multi-year partnership with FreightWaves, a data and content source for the freight market.

The new partnership positions Slync and FreightWaves to collaboratively advance the logistics and supply chain industries through content, education and technology.

In working with FreightWaves, Slync gains access to a powerful community of participants in the transportation and supply chain markets.

FreightWaves is one of the charter companies of the Blockchain in Transport Alliance (BiTA), a first-of-its-kind trucking industry consortium for developing and promoting industry standards in blockchain use.

FreightWaves hosts the BiTA community events and activities in partnership with the membership. In May, Slync’s automation and digitisation platform – which leverages intelligent workflows, predictive analytics, AI and blockchain – won “Best in Show” at FreightWaves’ Transparency 18 conference.

“Slync is at the forefront of helping enterprises leverage emerging technologies to improve supply chain performance, automation and transparency,” said Craig Fuller, Founder of FreightWaves and Managing Director of BiTA.

At Transparency 18, Slync was recognised as ‘Best in Show’ for its new enterprise automation platform. We’re ecstatic about this partnership, which promises to add immense value to our community and the industry as a whole.”

Chris Kirchner, CEO of Slync, will be a featured presenter in November at the MarketWaves18 conference in Dallas/Fort Worth that will feature leading technology and innovations in the supply chain.

Michael Lewis, author of Flash Boys, The Blind Side and Moneyball is presenting as the keynote.

“The global supply chain has reached a critical juncture. There’s an immense opportunity and need to automate critical supply chain processes and improve collaboration,” said Kirchner.

“Our partnership with FreightWaves enables us to join the conversation with many industry leaders as well as equip more companies with the technology and resources they need to digitize key processes and improve supply chain performance.
