AFS Logistics Partners With e2open to Equip Shippers With Tech Solutions
AFS Logistics, a prominent third-party logistics (3PL) provider, has entered into a strategic partnership with e2open, a leading connected supply chain SaaS platform known for hosting the largest multi-enterprise network. Under this agreement, users of e2open's Transportation Management will now have the capability to seamlessly integrate with AFS's freight audit and payment solution.
“Shippers face a logistics landscape with various shocks and disruptions that can threaten service continuity and apply major pressure on tight margins,” said Dean Jones, Chief Channel Development Officer at AFS Logistics. “Our collaboration with e2open helps us further equip shippers to adapt to pricing and capacity fluctuations and keep freight moving efficiently.”
AFS's freight audit and payment services play a crucial role in guaranteeing that shippers are billed accurately. These services help uncover overcharges, rectify errors, and address late payments, resulting in precise billing and payment on every invoice, every time. On average, AFS identifies a 20% invoice error rate and recovers savings of up to 8% on each invoice. It's worth noting that AFS was one of the pioneering founders of the freight audit and payment industry, and since its establishment in 1982, it has expanded its presence to comprise over 380 professionals across eight locations in North America.
“At e2open, we are committed to providing our customers with the most comprehensive and integrated solutions for managing their supply chains,” said Antoine Wade, General Manager, e2open. “Our TMS offerings exemplify this, and working with AFS further enables shippers to optimize their logistics operations.”
The overarching goal of this collaboration between AFS and e2open is to equip shippers with cutting-edge technology and access to a wealth of valuable data. Furthermore, both companies possess the expertise to assist customers in utilizing this technology and data to extract critical insights for their logistics operations. This collaborative effort aims to empower customers to make more informed, data-driven decisions while offering greater visibility and powerful solutions within a seamlessly integrated technology platform.
