Bringing an end to unprecedented congestion in the global supply chain requires meaningful collaboration, and this alliance will allow both TCS and Blume Global to disseminate innovative supply chain technology solutions including orchestration, transportation management and supply chain visibility to the North American, European and Asian markets. Blume Global’s suite of digital solutions available to TCS include:

– Control Tower: Correlates data from multiple systems to identify exceptions, prioritize exceptions based on business impact and recommend options to resolve exceptions.
– Blume Logistics: Creates a robust network for logistics tendering, tracking, event capture, POD verification and settlement initiation uniting carriers—from ocean to rail to long haul—with first- and last-mile drayage for real-time event and cost tracking.
– Asset Optimization: Enables motor carriers, ocean carriers and IMCs to determine the best moves to optimize the availability of supply, while reducing fees and empty miles.
TCS will help its customers in the hi-tech, transportation, logistics and industrial manufacturing markets leverage Blume Global solutions to drive digital transformation. In turn, Blume Global will promote TCS’ IT and business services and solutions to its customer base.
