SheerExchange connects disparate systems, including Enterprise Resource Planning systems (ERP), Transportation Management Systems (TMS), Warehouse Management Systems (WMS), Real-Time Transportation Visibility Platforms (RTTVP), and other critical technology, enabling shippers to create an integrated ecosystem of logistics technology that meets the unique needs of their supply chain. As a result of its powerful integration capabilities, SheerExchange radically reduces TMS and Managed Transportation Service implementation timelines to weeks, not months. 

Through SheerExchange, data is cleansed and normalized and delivered back into shipper ERP, RTTVP, and other platforms, ensuring businesses get the most out of their investments in these systems. By unifying disparate data sources, Sheer Logistics provides shippers with visibility to actionable, real-time business intelligence through Sheer’s customized dashboards and reporting.  

Leveraging SheerExchange’s nearly limitless integration capabilities, Sheer recently introduced a Scope 3 CO2e Emissions Dashboard solution that empowers shippers to measure and ultimately reduce their Scope 3 transportation-related CO2e emissions.  

The “Innovation of the Year” award is the latest in a streak of industry recognition and momentum for Sheer Logistics.
