Eric Rempel

Chief Innovation Officer, Redwood Logistics

Eric Rempel is Redwood Logistics’ Chief Innovation Officer. He joined Redwood in 2004 as its chief technology officer. As CTO, he played a vital role in the creation of what would become one of Redwood’s flagship products ­— its proprietary transportation management system (TMS) that combines historical analytics, market data and operational best practices. Eric led the design of Redwood’s TMS offering by integrating powerful transportation automation into customer supply chains, based on a web interface that can be accessed anywhere with an internet connection. TMS remains an integral part of the way Redwood delivers value to the company’s brokerage clients.

Eric founded 3PLogic in 2009, which is known today as Redwood Supply Chain Solutions (“SCS”). With a strategic focus on integrated enterprise systems, the technology created at 3PLogic was the design catalyst for today’s supply-chain integration platform, RedwoodConnectSM. A platform so successful that Redwood’s Software as a Service TMS partner, MercuryGate, has named Redwood as its first and only Logistics Integrator Partner.

From 2010 to 2015, under Eric’s leadership, Redwood SCS grew exponentially with over 8,000% advancement. The company’s achievement in developing customer-facing solutions and supply chain technology was recognized when Redwood earned a number three ranking on Crain’s Fast 50 List for 2016.

In 2017, Eric was named Redwood’s Chief Innovation Officer. As CIO he is focused on developing diverse solutions and services for the company’s clients. Eric is a thought leader and national speaker on advanced technologies such as API-lead architecture, cloud computing, supply-chain integration & automation, big-data analytics, and emerging technologies.

Eric is a Mulesoft Customer Advisory Board member, and a Blockchain in Transportation Alliance (BiTA) member. He holds a B.S., Computer Engineering and Mathematics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
