Tokyo – January 31, 2023 - project44, the leading supply chain visibility platform for shippers and third-party logistics providers, today announced that DENSO CORPORATION, a global automotive parts manufacturer, has selected project44 as its supply chain visibility solution provider to optimize its global logistics operations.

DENSO provides its customers with high-quality automotive products and exceptional customer service. The recent COVID-19 pandemic has caused frequent and significant delays in vessel schedules for ocean transport, making it difficult to track the location of cargo in a timely manner. DENSO has partnered with project44 to optimize its logistics operations and help mitigate supply chain disruptions.

project44 will enable DENSO to automate its supply chain processes, while providing real-time insights on cargo location and estimated time of arrival (ETA). Additionally, DENSO will integrate its production management and logistics systems with project44 to cut unnecessary air freight costs and substantially improve freight management efficiency. Using project44, DENSO will gain comprehensive visibility into its global logistics operations to build a supply chain with better accuracy and increased resilience.

We expect supply chain uncertainties and disruptions to continue in the future,” said Yuji Kuwahara, project44’s GM and VP of Sales, Japan. We are thrilled that project44’s end-to-end visibility technology, more accurate ETAs and rich insights will support DENSO in streamlining its global logistics operations in this ever-changing business landscape. Through our partnership with DENSO, we will further enhance our visibility platform to meet the needs of Japan’s complex automotive market.”

project44 expanded its presence in the Japanese market in early 2022 with the opening of a new office in Tokyo, positioning the company for continued growth in the region. With the Movement by project44 platform, Japan’s leading industries can leverage high-accuracy ocean visibility data to optimize supply chain operations critical to the country’s transcontinental trade.
