The leading provider of logistics AI for Fortune 1000 enterprises is experiencing hyper-growth in the North American & European markets, and this momentum is fueled by recent industry recognitions, high-profile customer wins, and a proven track record of delivering significant value.

CHICAGO, April 3, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Pando’s AI-powered, no-code platform helps manufacturers & retailers to drive agility across their supply chain execution & has customers across the US, Europe, & Asia Pacific. Pando’s innovative approach to logistics technology has earned the recognition of top analyst firms and won customers praise for its ability to deliver faster value realization.

Supply chain disruptions are the new normal. Geo-political tensions, freight rate volatility, and consumer & shareholder expectations on sustainable practices, have all caused supply chain leaders to rethink their technology needs. AI is fundamentally changing the people-technology relationship in supply chain management – processes like freight sourcing, transportation planning & execution, rate management & forecasting, and freight audit & payment, which used to be labour-intensive, are now getting automated. Automation through AI has become imperative in building an anti-fragile supply chain.
