NEPTUNE BEACH, FL, Nov. 2, 2015 - ShipXpress Inc., a pioneer in cloud-based supply chain software, announced that Ryder, a leader in commercial fleet management, dedicated transportation, and supply chain management solutions, has deployed the ShipX Supply Chain Portal to manage logistics for sand, water, cement, and supplies for its oil and gas clients.
ShipXpress customized the Supply Chain Portal to meet Ryder and its customers' requirements for collaborative decision making in oil and gas logistics. The ShipX Supply Chain Portal improves communication between sand coordinators, sand suppliers, truck carriers, and Ryder operators managing the process of transporting the supplies necessary for exploration and production. Ryder manages the entire shipment life cycle process, end-to-end, from job crews requesting the loads through to freight payment to the carrier. With ShipXpress, Ryder can coordinate the scheduling of trucks, verify wait times using GPS time stamps, pay carriers within days, monitor contract compliance, and project their inventory at transload sites by accounting for railcars in transit.
Charith Perera, the CEO of ShipXpress, states: "We are fortunate to have the experts at Ryder help us customize the Supply Chain Portal to efficiently coordinate the supplies required for exploration and production activity."
"The ShipXpress Supply Chain Portal enables us to efficiently scale our services to our customers' needs and execute thousands of loads daily, free from error," says Will Taylor, Senior Director of Engineering at Ryder Oil & Gas. "From the mobile app that makes it more convenient for the well site coordinator to manage the steady flow of sand and water, to online invoicing that helps us speed order to cash cycles for bulk carriers, Ryder is helping oil and gas customers increase visibility and improve lead time and planning."
