Phoenix International Selects GT NexusCloud Supply Chain Platform to Put Logistics Services Leader and Global Partners on the Same Information Page (May 30, 2012)
OAKLAND, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/30/12 -- GT Nexus today announced that it had been selected by Phoenix International to provide cloud network services across the company's global network of offices, agents and customers. Adding another major industry player to the burgeoning GT Nexus cloud network for global commerce advances the company's strategy to become the standard means for information exchange and global commerce execution.
Phoenix International is the largest privately-owned international freight forwarder, NVOCC and Customs broker headquartered in North America, with more than 2000 employees in 72 global offices and annual sales of approximately $1 billion. Each year, Phoenix International handles over 250,000 containers of Ocean Freight and over 41,000 tons of air freight on behalf of its global customers.
"We were drowning in manual processes and not getting the results we wanted," said Terri Sandine, Director of Information Systems at Phoenix International. "The GT Nexus cloud platform is shared by thousands of companies and the collective power of that community is all driving the same information standards. That was a huge factor in our decision to select GT Nexus."
"Phoenix International is a fantastic addition to the growing community of Logistics Service Providers who have standardized on GT Nexus," said John Urban, president of GT Nexus. "The GT Nexus platform is experiencing rapid growth across all industry segments and logistics providers like Phoenix International are driving better performance at a network-wide level."
