Cloud-Based Solution Helps Shipping Customers Navigate Pandemic
Shipwell’s cloud-based solution kept ETS-Lindgren, a part of ESCO Technologies, Inc., running smoothly at a time when the COVID-19 pandemic exposed the outdated tools that many companies use to manage their supply chain.
“By taking advantage of Shipwell’s integrated capacity network and price forecasting tools, we were able to navigate challenges to our supply chain smoothly,” said Alice Chen, Director, Logistics, of ETS-Lindgren. “ESCO now plans to evaluate moving several of their companies to the Shipwell platform.”
