Our Mission:

Connecting the software that moves supply chains.

We are supply chain experts. After running into the same issue repeatedly on hundreds of logistics implementations, we knew there had to be a better way. So we built it.

Our Story

Streamlining supply chains.

Starting Chain.io wasn’t something we thought we wanted to do.

We felt we had to.

After working on visibility platforms directly with large global retailers and freight shippers, logistics providers, and software vendors for 15 years, we experienced first hand the friction, the slowdowns, and the wasted time, energy, and dollars poured into integrations.

We also saw how quickly new technologies and platforms were coming to market – and the dire need for those platforms to be able to connect to systems already in place, even 30-year-old legacy or home-grown systems.

So we went to work developing an integration platform built for the modern supply chain so that shippers, logistics providers, software vendors, and ultimately the end consumers could be aligned in the successful movement of freight and all of the core business processes associated with it.

Our goal is to bridge the last 30 and the next 30 years of supply chain tech.

Speak the same language.

Different terms, same concept.

We’ve worked across verticals and supply chains. Chain.io speaks with a universal translator, no matter whether you or your partner use the same vocabulary — Chain.io knows what you mean, and how to connect.

From factory to ocean to truck to warehouse.

When cargo moves in a transportation management system by truck, it has a load number. When it crosses from truck to port, it then has an ocean booking number. At a warehouse, it might have another name and number. At Chain.io, we’re versed in all nodes and modes, and our platform ensures the right number is in the right field so you know where your freight is and when it’s arriving.

Eliminate complex discovery.

When there’s no confusion over the unique jargon, integrations can happen quickly and easily. Whether it’s your internal IT team or the triangle between shippers, forwarders, and software vendors

Tools of yesterday, today, and tomorrow

The explosion in SaaS and APIs has given supply chain and logistics parties access to amazing new tools. Chain.io enables software vendors to easily onboard new customers, and it enables shippers and forwarders to quickly adopt the latest tools.
