Redwood Logistics is the First Company to Introduce LPaaS, the Open Platform for Digital Logistics

Redwood Logistics, a leading logistics platform company based in Chicago, has announced the launch of a re-engineered suite of services that offer the optimal blend of logistics and technology capabilities, eliminating the difficulty and risk of building and operating a digital logistics network.

This proprietary Redwood offering is based on the revolutionary Logistics Platform as a Service (LPaaS) logistics and technology delivery model. LPaaS is a digital logistics open platform that enables shippers to easily mix and match partners, technologies, and solutions to create their own exclusive digital supply chain fingerprint. Redwood, the leader of the LPaaS approach, integrates best-in-class supply chain technology and logistics services, utilizing RedwoodConnect, Redwood's proprietary iPaaS platform, into a single cohesive digital and physical supply chain that transforms and adapts as their customer's organization evolves.

“LPaaS is an unprecedented approach to delivering high-value, low-risk logistics and technology services, which is especially valuable for organizations attempting to navigate today's hyper-fragmented and unpredictable supply chain landscape,” said Mark Yeager, CEO of Redwood Logistics. “After a decade of effectively doing this for our clients, we are reorienting our suite of offerings and naming what we do best: delivering a Logistics Platform as a Service to our customers and taking the risk out of creating digital supply chains.”

Shippers also find technology transformations to be risky, complicated, and time-consuming. Cloud technology provides flexibility, but it has not been able to fill the gap between physical and digital supply chain connection points; a fact that has only been exacerbated by unpredictable disruptions such as the COVID-19 pandemic. LPaaS gives shippers more control, versatility, and profitability over their logistics and supply chain networks.

“Redwood has solved the issue of delivering agile logistics networks at scale by removing the friction and cost traditionally associated with intertwining logistics and technology,” said Mike Reed, Redwood Logistics' Chief Product Officer. “We have a rich history of helping shippers in transforming how they conduct logistics by not only engineering optimized logistics networks, but also by incorporating their applications and trading partners into a digital harmony.”
