2. Expanded Carrier Network Coverage
project44 continues to be the largest global carrier network, growing 112% over the last 12 months with over 212,000 active data sharing connections. We even opened a Center of Excellence in Krakow, Poland, to rapidly scale carrier onboarding efforts. At the same time, we’ve nearly doubled our global carrier onboarding teams, which includes the support of 16 languages!

3. Growing Partner Ecosystem
It’s simple. We couldn’t do what we do without the support of our trusted partners. That’s why we’re diligently working on building out a partnership program that benefits all sides of the equation. So far in 2021, project44 launched air freight tracking, which is now available for all SAP LBN customers, and partnered with SupplyStack for TMS integration and Time Slot Booking solutions for extended warehouse visibility.

4. Rapid Team Expansion
project44 has been constantly evolving since its start in 2014. With that comes the need for talent and growing teams. The project44 team grew by 37% in Q1 alone. Yes, you read that right – 37% in just three months. These new hires span across the globe and represent our commitment to inclusivity with several women earning executive seats. We can’t wait to welcome even more new team members throughout the remainder of the year and beyond!

5. New Products
A key factor in the evolution and success of project44 is the ongoing development of products, services and solutions. We’ve launched several new products in 2021, including: Port Intel, a real-time port congestion aid for shippers; Supplier Visibility, a product that tracks hard-to-track shipments for prepaid supplier freight; and integrated Slot-booking, which merges third party time slot booking capabilities with real-time visibility directly on the p44 platform.

6. Key Data Insights
In March, Ocean Insights, a project44 company, released its ocean shipment data that provided critical insight into the impact of ongoing delays at major ports, including the catastrophic Suez Canal blockage. The analysis was cited in key publications, such as The Financial Times, The Wall Street Journal, Daily Mail, Wired, Bloomberg, RT and more.

These are just a few examples of how project44 is building momentum and helping the supply chain evolve and transform for the better. Ready to evolve with us?
