Kewill Named Top 100 Logistics Provider for Sixth Consecutive Year

Inbound Logistics Recognizes Kewill's Multimodal Transportation Platform for Ability to Manage Supply Chain Complexities

MANCHESTER, UNITED KINGDOM and CHELMSFORD, MA--(Marketwired - May 21, 2014) - Kewill, a leading provider of innovative software for supply chain execution, has been selected as a Top 100 Logistics IT Provider by Inbound Logistics magazine for the sixth consecutive year. The company is spotlighted for the offerings in its comprehensive Kewill MOVE® multimodal transportation platform, and the award follows several significant accomplishments achieved by the company in the past 12 months.

Every April, Inbound Logistics editors recognize 100 logistics IT companies that support and enable logistics excellence. Drawn from a pool of more than 300 companies, using questionnaires, personal interviews, and other research, Inbound Logistics selects the Top 100 Logistics IT Providers who are leading the way in 2014. Editors seek to match readers' fast-changing needs to the capabilities of those companies selected. All companies selected reflect leadership by answering Inbound Logistics readers' needs for scalability, simplicity, fast ROI, and ease of implementation.

Kewill was selected based on the strength of its offerings in several key areas: global trade management, inventory management, load planning, optimization, rate bid management, routing and scheduling, supplier/vendor management and supply chain control tower. The Inbound Logistics survey also underscores the trends and pain points impacting the logistics industry, noting that 70 percent of respondents listed visibility as a top concern, a key area of focus and development for Kewill this year. To meet the increased market demand, Kewill recently announced enhancements to the Kewill MOVE® platform with increased visibility capabilities. This new functionality, available in the Kewill Control Tower and Kewill Dashboard solutions, allows for better collaboration between supply chain businesses, creates a real-time flow of critical shipment data and improves control over core processes from order management to financial performance analysis, benefiting the entire internal business from the boardroom through to operations and beyond the walls of the organization to customers.

"During the past three years, many enterprises made the strategic shift to better rationalize inventory with demand," said Felecia Stratton, Editor, Inbound Logistics. Kewill consistently provides the kind of technology solutions Inbound Logistics readers need to achieve the visibility and control that makes that business logistics paradigm shift work. As shippers, carriers, and 3PLs increase their use of logistics IT, Kewill continues to be flexible and responsive, anticipating customers' evolving needs. Kewill deserves recognition for providing the innovative solutions empowering logistics and supply chain excellence in 2014."
