What is the Global Logistics Gateway?

The Global Logistics Gateway (GLG) connects Shippers, Carriers and other supply chain operating networks through a single point of connection, to unlock new partnerships, enhance operations and create end-to- end logistics visibility. It uses open standards-based authentication and public API-based process orchestration across a variety of Carrier systems and transportation networks to create a network of networks that unlocks new opportunities and operational efficiencies for all parties.

Through the GLG, One Network aggregates and processes data from all of the following sources:

  • ONE Carrier Web Portal
  • ONE Carrier Mobile App
  • Bid Boards and Digital Freight Brokerage Networks
  • Direct API- or EDI-based connections to Carrier systems
  • Third-party tracking providers
  • Electronic Logging Device (ELD) and GPS tracking systems with Intelligent geo-events

“True value is created when businesses work together to do multi-party optimization across multiple enterprises and multiple functions, from demand to logistics and fulfillment. The Global Logistics Gateway from One Network solves those issues by automating optimized execution across the value network.”

– Ann Grackin, CEO ChainLink Research
