How the LPaaS Model is Transforming FreightTech


You’ve heard of SaaS (Software as a Service), and perhaps iPaaS (Integration Platform as a Service), but a newer model is sweeping the supply chain and logistics industry: LPaaS – Logistics Platform as a Service.

Redwood Logistics created the innovative model, which vaulted Redwood into FreightWaves’ 2022 FreightTech 25 list after FreightTech 100 finishes in 2019, 2020 and 2021. Now, the model is growing into maturity with new and expanded tools and platforms joining the game-changing open ecosystem as voting takes place in the 2023 FreightTech awards.

If you’re struggling to connect all your different supply chain systems and data, there is a way to integrate them all into your unique supply chain footprint. LPaaS makes it possible.


LPaaS: An Open Platform for Digital Logistics

Ultimately, LPaaS unites full-service third-party logistics with industry-leading open technology, with a goal of eliminating the complexity and risk of building and running your digital logistics network. It’s the all-in-one toolkit for plug-and-play logistics.

Through the model, Redwood empowers shippers to move their freight via a combination of digital freight brokerage, dedicated capacity and multimodal cross-border solutions; manage their freight with outsourced transportation management, including LTL, Parcel and Warehouse & Distribution; and innovate their supply chains using RedwoodConnect™ to integrate disparate systems, as well as the newly introduced sustainability offering, Redwood Hyperion.

Here are the three most recent ways LPaaS can transform your supply chain.


Integrate Your Supply Chain With RedwoodConnect™

RedwoodConnect is the integration engine of LPaaS, acting as the distribution hub to seamlessly link your entire supply chain. All carriers, apps and systems. Integrated in real-time (requiring no code or implementation support from your IT team).
