B2BGateway and LeSaint Logistics partner to provide Supply Chain and EDI solutions.
September 12, 2008 | Boston, MA – After careful evaluation on the part of both parties, B2BGateway and LeSaint Logistics have decided to partner, in order to provide fully managed end to end Supply Chain and EDI solutions. Clients utilizing this end-to-end service no longer will have to choose a 3PL and then choose an EDI provider. The full service solution has already been proven with a number of joint clients who have used both B2BGateway and LeSaint over the past years. This partnering allows both B2BGateway and LeSaint to offer a packaged full service solution to the end users.
“LeSaint Logistics strategic direction is to provide our customers a “one stop shop” for World Class end to end supply chain solutions,” states Jeff Pennington, President of LeSaint Logistics. “In achieving this objective we developed strategic alliances with World Class providers such as B2BGateway. B2BGateway is recognized as a best in class organization providing, fully managed and fully integrated EDI solutions a price that is affordable for Small and Midsized businesses.”
“B2BGateway has been very careful over the years in developing strategic partnerships. LeSaint Logistics, being a recognized as a Top 100 3PL is a very good choice for a partnership”, states Kevin Hoyle, CEO of B2BGateway. “We are excited about the future of our relationship with LeSaint. In the past, we have worked very well together on various projects and we expect to jointly provide a service that is easy for clients to use and implement.”
Building upon the collective history of working together, both B2BGateway and LeSaint will be able to offer clients a solution that provides a seamless integration between the EDI system and the Supply Chain Logistics solution. With EDI being the process of electronically sending and receiving all business documents and the Supply Chain Logistic being the process of fulfilling orders and shipping, a collaboration between these two leading companies is a logical fit.
