Global Logistics Network

The Global Logistics Network (GLN) is a multimodal network of transportation providers and their customers that facilitates the interchange of logistics information and provides services that
leverage that information to help enterprises conduct logistics business more effectively.

Designed specifically for logistics processes and their users, yet able to handle all standards
and message specifications for manufacturers, retailers and distributors, the GLN is differentiated by its management of data semantics, message delivery and transformation
of data pertaining to regional or global operations. It helps companies conduct logistics
business more efficiently and effectively by helping them gain control of global inbound
and outbound shipments and transform logistics focus from cost and asset centric to profit and
customer centric.

The GLN enables the world’s leading transportation providers to connect to their trading partners and seamlessly and reliably exchange information to help drive delivery performance and high levels of customer satisfaction.

The GLN is the definitive electronic communication service for logistics and supply chain trading partners. Reflecting over $70 million in investment, the GLN connects thousands of shippers with 90+ air, 30+ ocean, and 1400+ truck carriers, along with regulatory agencies such as the Federal Maritime Commission and U.S., Canadian, Dutch and Indian customs agencies.
