Blume Global Launches Cognitive Intermodal Digital Operating Platform (DOP) with Celtic Intermodal
Celtic Intermodal evaluated other potential partners that could offer intermodal transportation management solutions and elected Blume Global to be the trusted partner of choice to provide a full suite of rail and drayage planning and execution solutions.
FERMONT, CA: Blume Global, a leading provider of logistics and supply chain solutions empowered by the largest globally connected multi-modal network, has launched its Cognitive Intermodal Digital Operating Platform (DOP) with Celtic Intermodal as the lead customer.
The Blume Global Cognitive Intermodal DOP is built on technology that continuously collects and analyzes data in real-time from the extensive Blume network, searching for opportunities to provide superior customer service while balancing cost. Blume's intermodal TMS offers:
Automation: Optimize and automate shipment planning and execution. Capitalize on management by exception to focus on what is important.
Agility: Dynamically change the transportation plan during execution to take advantage of opportunities and address issues impacting delivery dates, cargo quality, and cost.
Aid: Choose from an extensive network of carriers, ensuring transportation capacity is always available.
"After surveying the market, we chose Blume Global's intermodal management system due to the company's unique relationships with the railroads and the significant amount of actionable intermodal data it has accumulated," said David Marsh, chief operating officer of Celtic Intermodal. "With that data, Blume can provide us with a system that makes automatic routing decisions when shipments are delayed, adapting to pain points in the supply chain with little oversight."
Built on decades of market leadership in international and domestic logistics, Blume Global partners with ocean lines, airlines, trucking companies, railroads, barge operators, marine terminals, airports, rail ramps, and warehouses in more than 130 countries to ensure freight moves in an efficient, predictable and highly visible way.
"Blume Global is proud to offer the highest standard Cognitive Intermodal Digital Operating Platform in the industry. Through this launch, we address the need for real-time collective intelligence, automation, capacity optimization and agility with fast time to value, which leads to highly satisfied customers," said Pervinder Johar, CEO of Blume Global.
