Chicago, Illinois, November 17, 2022 — project44, the leading supply chain visibility platform, announced today that it has been named to Fast Companys second annual Next Big Things in Tech list, honoring technology breakthroughs that promise to shape the future of industries—from agriculture and environment to productivity and artificial intelligence.

This year, 83 technologies developed by established companies, startups or research teams are highlighted for their cutting-edge advancements and potential to impact consumers, businesses and society overall. While not all of the technological developments are available in the market yet, each one is reaching key milestones in order to have a proven impact in the next five years.

In 2022, project44 reached new heights, with the launch of its revolutionary Movement by project44™ platform. Combining the power of the entire project44 product suite into one cohesive platform, Movement delivers connectivity and transparency to all supply chain partners — including shippers, carriers and logistics professionals. 

Recognition from Fast Company as one of the Next Big Things in Tech is evidence that we’ve continued to innovate and add considerable value for our customers,” said Jett McCandless, Founder & CEO of project44. Unpredictability has held supply chains back, and we’re changing that by building the connective tissue for the global supply chain. With greater multimodal visibility, agility and collaboration, we can solve the supply chain’s biggest issues. In the year ahead, we look forward to accelerating our vision to measure Scope 3 emissions and build more sustainable supply chains.”

Technology breakthroughs and cutting-edge advancements promise to be the solution to some of the world’s most pressing issues.
