GT Nexus Ranked as a Top 100 Logistics IT Provider for Fourth Consecutive Year

Annual Review of the Market by Editors of Inbound Logistics Magazine Cites Company's Performance for Leadership, Innovation and Value

ALAMEDA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 5, 2005 -- GT Nexus, Inc., a provider of hosted software and services for global logistics management, has been named a Top 100 provider of logistics technology in an annual industry survey conducted by Inbound Logistics magazine.

The 2005 award is the fourth consecutive year that GT Nexus has been honored. This year's ranking was the result of an extensive effort by the magazine's editors which evaluated over 500 candidates, encompassing large technology vendors as well as smaller, specialized companies providing software and IT management services for global supply chain and logistics management.

"Accelerating operational complexity from shifts to demand-driven logistics practices, more sophisticated partner collaboration, and the globalization trend, make it increasingly challenging for companies to match demand to supply," said Felecia Stratton, editor of Inbound Logistics. "It's impressive to see GT Nexus providing the flexibility and the range of solutions that forward thinking enterprises need to face these challenges. For that reason, Inbound Logistics' editors recognized GT Nexus as one of this year's Top 100 Logistics Information Technology solutions providers."

"We're pleased to receive this industry recognition," said Greg Johnsen, vice president, marketing and sales for GT Nexus. "It's a validation of our continuing focus on our customers, their global logistics needs, and delivering results through effective technologies that drive success and competitive value into their business."

The 2005 list was published in the recently distributed April issue of the magazine.
