Wakeo turns the supply chain from reactive to predictive
Global trade is a fascinating world that has been revolutionized over the past decades. Globalization opened up borders and triggered a tremendous growth of trade exchanges, bringing together so many different cultures, people and economies.
International logistics has grown exponentially and has been through outstanding transformations, but logistics information flows struggled to keep the pace. Today, they still rely on siloed data, legacy systems and inefficient processes, leading to a devastating black box on overseas transport flows.
A new era has come: through technology and industry expertise, Wakeo is on a mission to fix this lack of visibility and to turn supply chain from a costs center into a unique competitive edge for global leading companies.
Julien Cote and Loïc Marzin, co-founders of Wakeo who met at PwC, experienced the lack of visibility that global shippers face in overseas transportation. As datascientist at PwC, Loic Marzin worked for global enterprises on supply chain optimizations. He realized that data and machine learning would be game changers to bring supply chain to a new dimension.
Based in Paris, France, Wakeo is the leading visibility platform in overseas transportation and helps global leaders provide a cutting-edge customer experience and improve operational efficiency. The company already operates in 42 countries around the world and is rapidly growing its network.
