Interview: Redwood Logistics CIO, Eric Rempel

Redwood Logistics sought to profitably enter the mid-market segment through, a SaaS transportation management system that enables their customers to make rapid business decisions regarding their freight and transportation spend.

Connecting to key systems of record, such as ERP and warehouse management systems, was delaying customer onboarding and moreover, work was being re-done across each customer implementation. To abstract the complexity of EDI standards, Redwood Logistics used MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform to build an EDI transformation layer, enabling them to automatically transform data into the format most appropriate for each partner.

Now, they are able to access the right resources faster than before and develop sophisticated data-driven solutions for their clients. By partnering with MuleSoft, Redwood Logistics has built an application network of re-usable API assets that can be leveraged across implementations and reduced customer onboarding from 6-9 months to 60 days.
