Our Story
How We Got Started

Creating a Digital Infrastructure to Eliminate Inefficiencies

Jett McCandless, project44’s Founder and CEO, has seen the problems in the logistics and delivery space firsthand every day for 20 years. At each company and in every customer interaction, he knew the right technology could transform an industry that moves nearly $16.4 trillion worth of cargo every year in the U.S. alone.

After years of running successful supply chain start-ups, his passion for logistics and technology led him to launch project44, the only 100% digital supply chain visibility provider. In five years, we have raised over $100M, received numerous awards for our Advanced Visibility Platform™, and expanded globally by acquiring GateHouse Logistics, Europe’s leading visibility provider.

With a team of industry experts, technology visionaries and ambitious individuals, p44 is powering real-time, transparent and optimized shipping experiences. Since day one, we’ve never wavered from our vision of enabling a more successful and productive world. Our values unite us across continents and offices to stay focused and settle for nothing but the best from each other.

Our Name

Why project44”?

Route 66 — yes, 66 — is an American transportation icon rooted in Chicago, our hometown. But a few decades after opening, the Main Street of America could no longer serve the growing demand.

In 1953, Highway 44 opened as Rte. 66’s first major bypass. This ambitious new transportation infrastructure connected a growing nation and supply chain. It’s the perfect project to serve as our namesake.

(And if project44 is a little long for you, we always answer to p44.)

Others Agree. We’re Changing the Game.
