MEERBUSCH, Germany/ATLANTA, US: April 05, 2019. Riege Software has partnered with the Chain.io supply chain integration platform to enable stakeholders exchange data between multiple internal and external systems via its Scope logistics management product.

Reige says integration with Chain.io, means any API or file format such as EDI, XML or CSV can be handled quickly and consistently to exchange data between different systems that do not share a common language.

Green Worldwide Shipping (GWS), a Riege customer based in Atlanta, implemented the Scope integration with Chain.io to enhance cross-platform collaboration: “It is no question that continuous improvement to the technologies we use is an essential component in the future of international freight management,” commented president and CEO Thomas Jorgensen. “By increasing the operational efficiency of our technologies, we are able to free more time for our freight experts to do what they do best – service the client.”

Chain.io CEO Brian Glick added: "As logistics providers move towards digitization, they're being asked to connect to more and more systems across many technology stacks." His company’s cloud-based platform uses an open API, developer-friendly tools and AI to make connecting and coordinating systems and people easier.

In an effort to offset supply chain environmental impact for its customers and employees, GWS is partnering with Trees for the Future to plant one tree for every shipment and employee in 2019 (pictured).

“We are very excited to be able to bring this programme to our customers and international partners,” declared Jorgensen. “As contributors to the global environment, it is our responsibility to incorporate sustainability into our operational practice. It is only through relentless and ongoing effort can we begin to make a difference.”

Through its ‘Forest Garden Approach’ it trains farmers to plant and manage Forest Gardens that sustainably feed families, raise incomes by 400 percent and end deforestation.
