The session will dive into how Emerge helped Parker Hannifin solve a variety of internal challenges and reduced costs through its proprietary suite of tools.

Specifically, Crawford and Tepper’s discussion will provide detailed insight into how Parker Hannifin utilized Emerge to achieve savings of 16% on loads and a 25% increase in carrier engagement after moving from a manual to a platform-based process.

“The freight industry is in the midst of a technology tidal wave. As an increased number of tools present themselves, shippers have more opportunity than ever to increase savings, visibility, communication and service,” said Crawford. “Being that we’re a transportation company that builds technology and not the other way around, with a team consisting of former leaders of FedEx Freight, UPS Freight and GlobalTranz, we’re at the forefront of this wave.”
