Centerboard Microservices ensures modular solutions and streamlined efficiencies for technology providers within the shipping and logistics industry
Centerboard, the neutral, shipper-centric transportation management provider, announced today the availability of Centerboard Microservices, API solutions enabling seamless technology integration for shippers and technology providers. Presenting a ground-breaking approach to supply chain access, the cloud-based, a-la-carte offerings give users a fully customizable experience. Reflecting its mission to give shippers complete control over their supply chain, Centerboard’s API offering allows software providers to embed supply chain access into their clients’ existing systems, regardless of the transportation management system (TMS) or enterprise resource planning (ERP) platform.
“We’ve spent years working closely with shippers and leading technology providers – not only listening to their needs but building an IT roadmap that directly addresses those needs. The biggest pain point we’ve seen is the lack of neutrality and flexibility regarding technology solutions,” said Lindsey Shellman, Chief Commercial Officer at Centerboard. “The APIs through Centerboard Microservices is a solution that no one else in the industry is offering. We are thrilled to address the complexity of supply chain and let users access shipping functionality from within their existing applications. For the first time, users will have affordable access to technology that provides true visibility and control of their supply chain operations, while eliminating the need to juggle multiple tech stacks.”
BluePallet, the first end-to-end commerce platform for the chemical industry, is currently leveraging Centerboard Microservices to increase efficiencies for their users.
“Our partnership with Centerboard strengthens the TMS functionality within the existing framework of our marketplace, helping our users spend less time managing multiple supply chain services outside of our platform,” said Pat Salomé, Chief Product Officer at BluePallet. “We are looking forward to our continued partnership with Centerboard to support our network of manufacturers and distributors.”
Since rebranding in September, Centerboard has experienced substantial growth with an expanded roster of customers in chemical distribution, and food and beverage industries, including Dien, a leader in North American specialty chemical and ingredient distribution; JSI Store Fixtures, a branded display supplier to major supermarkets, convenience and specialty store chains; and S.L. Fusco, Inc. a Los Angeles based industrial supply distributor. Centerboard has also launched a range of new features, including advanced shipment notifications and enhanced carrier tracking messages. In addition to platform developments, Centerboard continues to invest in its team growth and plans to open a new state-of-the-art office facility this month.
