“We’re excited to team up with project44 as the first strategic partner for real-time visibility in Google Cloud’s Supply Chain Twin solution. project44’s broad visibility network, workflow automation and predictive analytics enable collaboration across all facets of the supply chain,” said Hans Thalbauer, managing director, global supply chain and logistics industry solutions for Google Cloud. “project44’s incredible expertise in transportation provides customers with the technology needed to greatly improve insight into shipments and orders across their supply chain.”
Google Cloud supply chain solutions, particularly the Supply Chain Twin, deliver end-to-end visibility by bringing together data from various business systems such as enterprise resource planning (ERP), transportation management systems (TMS), and warehouse management systems (WMS), as well as data from the operational systems of the customer and those of their partners.
