"As supply chains become increasingly complex, and as shippers continue to source from a variety of places, it becomes essential to leverage technology to bring more strategic value to enterprise logistics," stated Dr. George Kontoravdis, founder and president of Fortigo.

"So shippers should be looking at new logistics IT alternatives, and specifically solutions such as Fortigo that supply strategic logistics technology without burdening constrained IT resources," added Kontoravdis.

"Given the rapid pace of today's competitive business environment and the need for technology that can help companies leverage logistics strategy, both locally and globally as a competitive advantage, Fortigo offers a modular approach that allows companies to select the logistics IT solutions to meet their specific and ever-changing business needs," stated Felecia Stratton, editor, Inbound Logistics. "Providing logistics and technology leadership, even at today's break-neck speed of business, is one of the many reasons Fortigo was selected by Inbound Logistics editors as one of this year's Top 100 Logistics IT providers."

Fortigo reduces shipping costs, generally upwards of 10% of a company's revenue, by automating, optimizing and auditing logistics operations. Fortigo automates manual processes, optimizes key business decisions and audits carrier compliance to reduce logistics costs, increase profitability, enhance customer satisfaction and build competitive advantage for companies with mid-to-high volume shipping requirements.
