UniGroup Logistics Platform Debuts
June 21, 2021
Logistics Platform is a single platform enabling shared visibility throughout
the UniGroup enterprise.
Supported by a nationwide logistics fleet and more than 25 million square feet
of domestic commercial storage space and an additional 50 million square feet
globally, UniGroup Logistics specializes in complex, high-touch supply chain
solutions. The UniGroup Logistics Platform is an end-to-end single platform
featuring a new agent transportation management system, improving real-time and
all-mile visibility and increased connectivity at all levels. The platform
provides new efficiencies like real-time order updates, track and trace
abilities, electronic logging devices, mobile app usage and interconnected
partner systems. It will be available across all UniGroup Logistics business
segments including LTL, TL, Express, Brokerage and Final Mile.
"The UniGroup Logistics Platform is the next great step in revolutionizing our
logistics business and better serving our agents and customers," Scott Kluesner,
executive vice president of Operations at UniGroup said. "With new capabilities
and integrations, we've enabled greater visibility and transparency to
modernize, streamline and enhance the overall transportation management
Built in partnership with Rose Rocket, a leading transportation management
software provider, the UniGroup Logistics platform allows connected agents to
collaborate, gain insights and maximize opportunities for accelerated growth.
Agents can also gain and win new business and increase customer retention and
growth through features like self-serve portals and a chat functionality.
Rocket's technology was built to enable transportation providers with better
connectivity, visibility, collaboration, and strategic planning," Justin Bailie,
Chief Strategy Officer at Rose Rocket said. "We are incredibly proud and excited
to partner with UniGroup, who share our mission of modernizing the industry
through cutting-edge solutions like the UniGroup Logistics Platform."
Since beginning to use the UniGroup Logistics Platform in April 2021, agents
have already noted the benefits — as one agent remarked, "This has improved our
business by providing our agency with a one source solution for tracking, ETA
and invoicing, which makes it easier to be transparent with Operations, Customer
Service, Accounting and most importantly, the client." Since its launch, the new
UniGroup Logistics Platform has already enabled a 20% efficiency gain in
UniGroup Logistics order creation process, further positioning agents, customers
and partners for increased success.
