Aiding enterprises in navigating these unchartered territories by solving complicated issues like freight consolidation, route optimization, and supply chain analytics is Zengistics, a full-service logistics company. “We’re on a journey to blend the traditional values of a high service broker with advanced technology to create the greatest universe of carriers and the highest level of quality and on-time delivery,” says Chris Winslow, CEO of Zengistics.
The Texas-based firm offers a collaborative logistics platform to provide a high level of customer service to make the freight movement as seamless as possible. With an extensive network of carriers and shippers, Zengistics provides data-driven solutions to optimize the supply chain of enterprises through world-class customer service and state-of-the-art telematics. The edge possessed by the company, however, is the ability to deploy the latest freight optimization technologies. The gained insights are implemented in-house to enhance the capabilities of the platform’s technology and deliver exemplary services to its customers.
Although possessing market expertise in the manufacturing, automotive, and medical sectors, Zengistics has developed a niche in the craft beer business, which is seeing rapid expansion in the US.
Zengistics’ ability to funnel data and provide analysis proved critical, enabling its clients to understand the cost structure, details of shipped materials, the location of shipment, and more. The company took their world-class service up a notch by taking over the planning duties and implementing a master planning schedule, placing the responsibility of delivering the products to the distribution networks on them. Zengistics developed the best lane optimization and managed to utilize the full capacity of the trucks, thus saving the client thousands of dollars. This was achieved through constant communication with the carriers, empowering them with real-time market information updates and how their products are being pushed through the cost points in the supply chain. “We are very customer-focused and customer-driven in applying our technology to provide our services much more efficiently and effectively,” adds Eric Limburg, CRO at Zengistics.
Providing a glimpse into the company’s future, Zimmer mentions their plans to embark on the journey of further digitalization of their services, offering a seamless end-to-end connection for the customers, carriers, and employees. Zengistics looks forward to expanding its expertise into ocean freight, drayage, and bulk transportationas well. “With the platform, services, and the team that we have, we can navigate through the whole portfolio of supply chain solutions, globally,” Zimmer concludes on an optimistic note.
