Cloud Logistics named a Challenger in the 2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant

first_img Author: Baibhav Mishra E2open acquired Cloud Logistics on September 17, 2018 and quickly integrated “TMS Made Easy” into “Logistics Visibility” during the first 10 days. E2open then acquired INTTRA in November of 2018, connecting over 60 ocean carriers and 30,000 shippers to the E2open Logistics Visibility service. Cloud Logistics is in the process of integrating parcel and complex Rail Rule 11 functionality in 2019 to complete the footprint for shippers in the Fortune 250 client base. Nix continued, “The industry couldn’t believe it in 2015 when we announced our first “Same Day TMS” go-live. The client was trained on entering their carriers, users, carrier contracts, and routing guides in the morning and started shipping after lunch that same day. On the other end of the spectrum, 30% of our clients are massive companies that ship thousands of loads per day. They leverage our cutting-edge solutions to maximize their transportation spend while reducing safety stock thanks to the increase in visibility of all their moving inventory. Our largest projects will take 3-5 months to integrate disparate ERP’s, multiple divisions, or because of deployment schedule coordination with our customers.” “When we started the company in 2012, we set out to create a unique TMS that is modern, easy to use, and delivers the fastest route to value by offering the ability to implement and go-live in a single day. “TMS Made Easy” seemed like an appropriate tagline for a solution that was purpose-built to provide rich functionality. We created intuitive mobile apps for drivers and invented the Logistics Activity Stream which provides instant messaging to eliminate multiple and redundant threads of communication within the transportation department,” says Mark Nix, senior vice president of transportation and founder of Cloud Logistics. “In our view, to be recognized as a Challenger in our second positioning in the Magic Quadrant while continuing to add several great customer partners each year validates our execution of that vision.”center_img Cloud Logistics by E2open (Cloud Logistics), a leading innovator and provider of modern, easy-to-use transportation management systems (TMS), is pleased to announce its position in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Transportation Management Systems.

Former Barcelona keeper Victor Valdes makes full Manchester United debut

first_img Valdes, 33, was awarded his first minutes as a United player against Arsenal last week, coming on for David de Gea in the 74th minute.  “Falcao had a small problem in training and could not make it. It’s nothing serious, but he is injured.”  Victor Valdes made his full debut for Manchester United during Sunday’s 0-0 draw with Hull City.  However, Radamel Falcao was not included in the squad as he prepares to leave England after one season at Old Trafford. CEST “De Gea is injured, so it’s an easy decision to play Valdes in goal,” United boss Louis van Gaal said on Sunday.  Valdes signed for United after a move to Monaco fell through last summer. An injury picked up playing for Barça against Celta Vigo saw his move to the French league break down. 24/05/2015 The Colombian missed out on one final outing because of an injury.

Iker Casillas closes in on deal with Real Madrid which would see him move to Porto

first_img According the Madrid-based newspaper, Iker is ready to give up money in order to close an operation out of the club as soon as possible. In other words, Casillas will take a huge pay cut to join Porto.  Upd. at 17:15 What’s left to negotiate is the 15 million gross which the player will lose by leaving Madrid. What is clear is that Casillas and Madrid would like the situation tied up as soon as possible.  CEST On top of the money, getting a deal done quickly would mean Casillas would not have to report for Madrid’s pre-season tour in Australia. Iker Casillas could leave Real Madrid sooner rather than later. Marca have said that the goalkeeper is very close to reaching an agreement with the club which would see his contract rescinded.  Casillas is due to earn 6.5 million euros net this season at Madrid and 6 million the season after (25 million gross). The offer from the Portuguese club is 10 million gross over two years, which represents a 15 million loss. Sport EN 07/07/2015last_img read more

Mallorca youngster Víctor de Baunbag is being tracked by Liverpool

first_img Those who know Victor best say he’s the ideal striker for a Premier League side. This must what Liverpool think as well as they’ve been tracking his progress for a while and have let the player’s entourage know of their interest in him. Víctor de Baunbag, juvenil del Mallorca, en el punto de mira del Liverpool RELATED STORIES Upd. on 08/11/2018 at 12:24 CET De Baunbag stands out primarily due to his height. He’s 1.91m and this makes him difficult to defend against. Although he’s sometimes played out on the wing, he’s a natural striker and is lethal in front of goal. His talent hasn’t gone unnoticed at Mallorca and he’s expected to gain some minutes with the first team before this season is over. He’s part of the 2000 generation and came through the ranks at Mallorca with now Barça player, Mateu Jaume, and the two remain good friends. 07/11/2018 Josep Capdevila We’re talking about an 18-year-old forward whose family comes from Cameroon but he was born in Madrid. His budding career has been spent at Mallorca and the forward’s finished every season as the club’s top scorer. He’s in his third year at the academy but is essentially part of Mallorca’s reserve team, only dropping down to play with the other youngsters in big matches. He played against Espanyol and Girona is expected to do so against Barcelona on Sunday. Victor is the man the team will need to keep a close eye on. IN SPORT.ES @josepcapdevila La Fabrica’s ‘new Courtois’ who Argentina have robbed from Spain This Sunday FC Barcelona’s Juvenil A side will face off against RCD Mallorca in the Division de Honor youth league. With top spot up for grabs – Barça are on 19 points and Mallorca 18, both just behind leaders Zaragoza on 20 – Denis Silva’s men will come face to face with a very capable side.

Cobras shine on the big stage

first_imgBy sports editor Russell BennettIn front of a bumper crowd in picture-perfect conditions at Kooweerup’s Denhams Road ground, Cora Lynn once again proved its big game prowess – advancing to its fifth grand final in the past six seasons with a comprehensive 50-point win over Tooradin-Dalmore 15.11 (101) to 7.9 (51).The clinical win marked a 92-point swing from the Cobras’ qualifying final loss to the Seagulls at the same venue just a fortnight ago.Crowds once again flocked to Kooweerup this time around under sunny skies, and with the ground’s surface in immaculate condition.Cars lined Denhams Road from the Moody Street roundabout all the way to the gravel well past the ground in a sign of the interest from far and wide in the clash.And what the crowd was treated to was a vintage big game display from the Cobras, who this time around were led by a combination of their young guns, and more experienced leaders.Troy Tharle (two goals) opened proceedings less than 10 seconds into the first term with the game’s first major and the Cobras dominated the opening stanza, despite kicking to the Denhams Road end.Though they had six scoring shots to four in the first term, they led 4.2 (26) to 1.3 (9) at the opening break after getting the early ascendency in the centre of the ground.The Cobras used their size advantage to great affect at the stoppages with first choice ruck Billy Thomas and Tharle both having a significant impact, along with the likes of heart-and-soul midfielder Brady White.But it was on the outside that the Cobras were perhaps most impressive. Jaxon Briggs’ explosiveness from stoppages, in combination with his gut-busting running out wide was a clear difference-maker – shining for the second time in as many weeks on the big stage.But as the best sides so often are – the Cobras are only as strong as the sum of their parts in defense, the midfield, and up forward.And they stood tall in each facet – particularly down back.Their transition from defense to attack typified their workrate, as did their sheer number of avenues to goal – with five multiple goal-scorers.They’d constantly give up shots on goal to find team mates in a better position, in a continuance of their forward half dominance from their 10-goal win over the Demons at Korumburra.But after the Cobras piled on the opening three majors of the second term to lead 7.2 to 1.3 at one stage, the Seagulls sprung to life.The side that had impressed massively in its first season back in West Gippsland had too much quality across the ground to be pinned down for too long, and responded.In a big way, too.Right when they faced the prospect of being blown away, the Seagulls stood strong in the second half of the second term and the opening of the third to at one stage reduce the margin to just four points.Cobras coach David Main emphasised at half-time that his side had started to over-possess the footy, and it was starting to show. They’d gone away from what delivered them their lead in the first place.But that was in no small part to the Seagulls’ lift in work-rate around the stoppages.Yet just as they’d claimed the bulk of the momentum, Jaxon Briggs produced a moment of incredible class to hand it back his side’s way.The speedy Casey Demons-listed player bent a superb snap through the big sticks at the Denhams Road end from about 40 metres out to extend the margin back out to 10 points, 8.4 (52) to 6.6 (42).The goal led to audible gasps in the crowd, and one fan to even say: “That’s just outrageous”.From around the 7:20 mark in the third, the Seagulls would only manage one more goal for the rest of the day as the Cobras stormed home.The clash looked more like the season-opener between the two sides than it did the qualifying final, with the Cobras overwhelming the Gulls with their intensity at the contest and creative flair moving forward.The clash was effectively iced in the third term, as the Cobras turned a 22-point advantage their way into 40 with just a quarter to play.Brad Lenders continued his fine individual season for the Gulls, as did Andrew Dean with his five-goal haul, but when the time came for the Cobras to stand up on the preliminary final stage and take their opportunity with both hands, they grabbed it.They, along with the Island, remained undefeated until Round 14. And while Beau Vernon’s side kept its incredible run going, the Cobras, too, comprehensively proved they deserved their place in the big dance.While the Bulldogs are the reigning premiers and will deservedly go into next week’s blockbuster decider at Garfield as the hot favourites, it’s worth nothing just how much finals experience the Cobras have to fall back on.Heath Briggs, for example, will next week play his 10th senior final…. despite being just 18.Click below for video of the Cobras belting out their song in front of a packed away room full of their faithful. 197361 Pictures: STEWART CHAMBERS WEST GIPPSLAND FOOTBALL NETBALL COMPETITIONREVIEW – FINALS WEEK 3last_img read more
