Strategic partnership leverages one of the industry’s largest combined networks for food and beverage shippers
Holland, Mich. – September 26, 2017 – BluJay Solutions, a leading provider of supply chain software and services powered by the world’s first Global Trade Network (GTN), announces the successful migration of several Lineage Logistics customers to BluJay’s Transportation Management software platform. The move marks an important milestone in the exclusive partnership between BluJay Solutions and Lineage Logistics announced earlier this year, which enables customers in the food and beverage industry to outsource the management of their transportation network by leveraging the companies’ combined supply chain networks.
“Both organizations worked collaboratively and seamlessly to ensure a rapid implementation and meet customers’ business demands,” said Tim Hinson, COO of BluJay Solutions. “We are excited to bring the same energy and skill level to new customer relationships and projects as we go to market with the BluJay-Lineage partnership.”
With a collective $25 billion powering the network – approximately $12 billion in BluJay’s food and beverage transportation freight spend, and $13 billion in volume moving into and out of Lineage’s warehouses – the partnership creates one of the food and beverage industry’s largest supply chain ecosystems, combining BluJay’s highly scalable TMS with Lineage’s diverse global facility network. The companies also collaborate to provide value-added supply chain solutions including customs brokerage, processing, and compliance.
“This powerful combination gives our shared customers the benefits of scale, speed, and efficient execution to drive dramatic cost savings and strategic advantage through an unprecedented level of supply chain intelligence,” said Chris Timmer, Lineage’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Value-Added Services. “We took a significant step in our partnership by completing the migration, and we look forward to delivering more innovative, integrated supply chain solutions to customers worldwide.”
