ProvisionAI, the only provider of a patented, optimized replenishment transportation scheduling solution, has joined the Kinaxis solution extension partner program. Through this partnership, joint customers can now extend the visibility and agility gained from the Kinaxis RapidResponse® platform, and its patented concurrent technique, into their transportation scheduling needs; in effect, eliminating latency and siloes.
“The combination of RapidResponse and LevelLoad from ProvisionAI means customers can combine data from their whole network with their transportation data in real time,” said Tom Moore, CEO and founder at ProvisionAI. “By understanding real-time constraints from other parts of the supply chain, customers can create the most up-to-date replenishment transportation schedule that also takes into account lane carrier costs, warehouse capacities and inventory availability. It’s a game changer in supply chain management.”
Kinaxis and ProvisionAI already share several high-profile global customers including Unilever, Diageo, Baxter and Kimberly-Clark.
“Our solution extension partners are vital in the Kinaxis ecosystem, bringing unique and specialized capabilities to our customers,” said Conrad Mandala, senior vice president global partner organization at Kinaxis. “We are thrilled to welcome ProvisionAI to our global partner program and very excited to about what we’ll accomplish together.”

ProvisionAI provides global manufacturers with a transportation scheduling solution featuring optimized, capacity-constrained replenishment. LevelLoad, the flagship offering, attains long-term transportation planning objectives despite the realities of supply chain network constraints. The results include fuller loads, higher use of preferred freight carriers, and overall lower costs. Clients save millions by tendering loads early to reserve preferred carriers, filling truckloads optimally to minimize wasted capacity, improving customer order fulfillment, and ratcheting down costs. The patented technology was developed over five years by a team of logistics optimization experts that studied shippers like Unilever, Baxter, P&G, and Kimberly-Clark.

The quality and commitment of the resources dedicated to SGL’s implementation of e2open Transportation Management and the cultural fit between e2open and SGL was a decisive factor in the decision to partner with e2open in what will be the single largest and most important IT project in SGL’s history.”
E2open’s modern, cloud-based platform provides SGL with enhanced functionality to manage multimode logistics in all regions in a single application. Over the long-term partnership, e2open will support SGL’s goals to deploy a more strategic, global transportation strategy and offer customers across industries and locations the most comprehensive and convenient shipping solutions.
