Today I’m joined by Envase Technologies, a game-changing TMS provider that is on a mission to guide the freight industry into a more sustainable and profitable future.
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 Larry Cuddy, CEO of Envase Technologies, joins me to chat all about the company; the power of strategic mergers and acquisitions; putting a focus on optimization, as well as visibility; and the importance of industry-wide collaboration.
IN THIS EPISODE WE DISCUSS:
[06.32] An overview of Envase Technologies – what they do and how they help their customers.
“Envase is a digital drayage intermodal platform… and we’re helping optimize terminals.”
[07.25] Larry’s founder journey, and why he decided to tackle a fragmented market by establishing Envase and taking a proactive approach to mergers and acquisitions.
“We all got along as competitors, and now we’re all on the same team!”
[09.00] Why Larry is passionate about ‘getting his hands dirty’ in business, and the importance of collaboration.
“It gets back to culture… so we lead by example. I would never ask anybody to do anything that I haven’t attempted.”
[10.33] Larry announces some breaking news, and explains the impact it will have on the industry, and Envase customers.
“It’s so exciting, because nothing has been attempted like this!”
[12.16] The landscape of the current market, and Larry’s reflections on the key challenges and trends.
“There’s a real big spotlight on visibility and transparency… but ultimately where everyone wants to get to is optimization, and that’s the thing that everybody overlooks.”
[14.47] Larry’s advice for organizations starting their digital transformation journey; how they can identify the available options; and the conversations Envase have with their own clients to discover the best solutions for them.
[17.53] The challenges facing Envase’s customers, and how Envase can help.
“We still fight the fight every day about collaboration… people want to be protective of their data, they don’t want to share, they don’t want to be friends – so we take a very different approach.”
[19.27] From collaboration to data, the future for the industry.
“We’ve got air, we’ve got ocean, we’ve got LTL, we’ve got truckload. We’ve got all these different modes, but nobody shares the same DNA in order to say ‘hey, this is how we do this better!’”
[21.23] The future for Envase Technologies.
“We’re never happy with the status quo!”
