The CX North America Information Services company announced the launch of the company and the opening of its headquarters office in Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada. The company is a provider of software solutions in area of freight collaboration for 3PLs, brokers and carriers and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Transport Exchange Group, a provider to the road transport industry in the United Kingdom and operator of two of its largest freight exchanges.
Transport Exchange Group also operates CX Euro, another wholly-owned subsidiary providing transport collaboration solutions for Europe from its headquarters in the Netherlands. More than 4,500 companies currently rely on collaboration services from Transport Exchange Group.
CX North America says it believes the need for better visibility, agility, efficiency, collaboration and control across carrier partners and assets has never been greater, especially in North America. Competition within the $800 billion trucking industry is increasing, and major new players have plans to transform the sector, from Uber to Amazon. Today’s carriers, brokers and 3PLs, the company says, “must step up their game to compete effectively in this rapidly changing environment.” CX North America’s professional tools and unparalleled support network position it well to “help change the dynamics North American transportation companies face.”
“Our goal is to empower organizations, whether a single-truck firm or a company with a fleet of thousands, to maximize efficiency and effectiveness and thereby grow their business and revenue,” says Lyall Cresswell, president and CEO of CX North America, CX Euro and Transport Exchange Group. “CX North America gives firms the ability to keep track of their freight, drivers and partner carriers in real time from first customer contact to proof of delivery – and achieve the highest return possible from their business assets. Our tools also help maximize fuel usage and decrease carbon emissions through the strategic use of resources.”
Cresswell also emphasizes the platform’s utility for smaller operations via “smart collaboration” to “transcend their limitations of scale. With CX North America, a company with 50 vehicles has the capability to deliver the same levels of service and coverage as a company with 1,000 vehicles” through the collaborative platform.
With both an advanced online platform and mobile, app, says Sharon Coburn, CX North America’s vice president of business development for North America, the company’s “products and services offer anyone in the transportation, logistics and supply chain sectors the visibility they need for nimble and accurate decision making.”
