Today I’m joined by Envase Technologies, an innovative and fast-growing transportation software brand that is on a mission to deliver a single, streamlined system that digitizes the lifecycle of a container across the intermodal ecosystem.
Envase bring together everything you need to gain visibility and control over your operations, expose inefficiency, and de-clutter your system, including industry-leading TMS options to fit your needs, business intelligence, rate management tools, an integrated mobile driver app, and a complete marketplace.
Today Allen Thomas, Chief Commercial Officer at Envase Technologies, joins me to chat all about the company: what they do; the importance of digitizing drayage; how simplicity empowers growth; and why the freight industry is vital to the future of the nation.
IN THIS EPISODE WE DISCUSS:
[07.24] How Envase Technologies was established, and the challenges that founder, Larry Cuddy, faced that led him to create his own solution.
“It all started with the challenges that the drivers face… the drivers in supply chain are left to pick up the pieces and deal with the inefficiencies.”
[09.45] Envase’s growth, from start-up to the largest drayage TMS provider in North America, and the role that a strategic acquisition strategy played in that growth.
“If you could integrate visibility, streamline processes, create a common mobile application that drivers could use – you could really improve the day to day process efficiencies.”
[11.56] An overview of Envase Technologies – what they do and how they help their customers.
[14.49] The key challenges faced by the industry right now, and why companies that don’t use a cloud-based drayage TMS face increasing issues.
“Everybody, from very small to very large, has the same two big challenges – visibility, and process efficiency.”
[19.25] A closer look at the Envase system for intermodal and drayage customers.
[24.37] A deeper dive into Envase’s over-the-road solutions, and how they’re helping carriers and brokers to compete in a difficult market and achieve success.
[27.44] The importance of building a wider ecosystem, why simplicity empowers growth, and how Envase is facilitating both of these things for their customers.
[31.43] What onboarding and integration looks like with Envase.
“We take a lot of time… to analyze and diagnose before we start prescribing.”
[34.08] The ideal client for Envase Technologies.
[35.44] A case study showing how Envase helped a client, that was struggling with cargo stuck in ports incurring costly charges, to overcome their challenges, ultimately reducing charges and increasing efficiency.
[39.12] The future for Envase Technologies.
