SaaS 2.0: How the Logistics Industry is Driving an Evolution in Software-as-a-Service

Posted on 9, May | Posted by David Maxfield

The software as a service (SaaS) model has been widely embraced by multiple industries thanks to the numerous advantages that on-demand solutions deliver. Logistics-intensive organizations, however, were among the first to turn to SaaS to reduce costs, increase operational performance and improve customer satisfaction. As the need for connectivity, collaboration and compliance grows, many members of the global supply chain now realize that SaaS in the logistics market can offer far more than “rented” application software when connected to a “federated” network comprised of several communities (such as airlines, ship and truck carriers, government agencies, logistics providers, etc.), each with a common interest.
