Redwood Logistics CSCMP Spotlight
As a Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) Corporate Member, we were featured in a recent Corporate Spotlight. See below for the full interview.
1. What is your company all about?
Redwood Logistics is a technology-driven third party logistics company. We combine innovation, technology, and expertise with superior customer service. We are committed to our customers, our carriers, and each other. We hire amazing people and create best-in-class technology so that we can deliver world-class transportation services.
2. What makes your company different than other companies in your industry?
Redwood Logistics has developed LoadRunner®, a proprietary transportation management software. LoadRunner® uses cutting-edge predictive analytics and big data to help our customers and carriers be as efficient as possible. Our in-house software development team can customize LoadRunner® to suit any need, making Redwood Logistics the most flexible 3PL in the market.
3. What was your company's most recent greatest accomplishment?
Redwood Logistics achieved more than 100% year-over-year growth in 2014. We deliver efficient, creative solutions to our customers--from startups to Fortune 500 companies. With LoadRunner®, we can reduce operational, landed, and technology costs in ways that were not possible five years ago.
4. What is the biggest challenge you face in your industry?
One of the biggest challenges in the logistics industry is a growing driver shortage. Regulatory changes in 2016 and 2017 will only worsen the problem. We can help insulate shippers from unstable markets by tapping into hidden capacity. As freight costs rise, we use different cost-containment models to fit each customer's unique needs.
5. Why is your company a CSCMP Corporate Member?
Redwood Logistics is a CSCMP Corporate Member because we believe that the information, research, and education CSCMP delivers is invaluable. The industry insight from CSCMP contributes to our success as a leading 3PL provider.
