“Cloud Logistics has set a new standard in transportation management with their innovative technology and rapid deployments. The combination of this technology with the logistics ecosystem on E2open’s network will further accelerate time-to-value for our customers,” said Michael Farlekas, chief executive officer of E2open.

Cloud Logistics Recognized by Gartner

Cloud Logistics has been recognized by Gartner, Inc. in the March 2018 Magic Quadrant for Transportation Management Systems.

Cloud Logistics also received an Overall Rating of 4.8 out of 5 in the Transportation Management Systems market, on Gartner’s Peer Review Insights, based on 6 reviews.* With TMS Made Easy® featuring up to same-day deployment, Cloud Logistics delivers the fastest implementations and onboarding in the industry.
