Spend Management Experts is a leading provider of parcel optimization, transportation management and e-commerce services helping companies optimize their parcel and e-commerce spend.
This strategic acquisition bolsters Transportation Insight's parcel optimization and transportation management offering, increasing the company's focus in both small parcel and e-commerce capabilities. Spend Management Experts has an array of sophisticated supply chain customers specializing in retail, manufacturing and distribution across consumer products, medical, pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, cosmetics, luxury products and consumer electronics, all complementing Transportation Insight's vertical strategy.
"We are excited to join the Transportation Insight team. By combining both companies' scale, we provide more resources to our existing customer base, and create one of the largest small parcel management and optimization companies in North America," said John Haber, chief executive officer of Spend Management Experts. "In 2020, large parcel shippers were forced to reevaluate their carrier relationships.
