How Shipwell helped a major player in the food supply chain industry to instantly drive greater efficiency at scale while significantly reducing spoilage.Download the full case study
Marcus Technologies is a leader in the advanced protein trading and logistics space who uses their platform to connect protein vendors, buyers, and traders. Their mission is to use technology to push the boundaries in a traditionally slow-paced industry while also creating efficiencies to help reduce food waste and spoilage.
Marcus Technologies manages the transportation of protein, a highly perishable commodity, and was relying on a manual process to book their customer’s freight. They needed a reliable logistics partner to help them drive efficiencies and scale, while reducing food waste.
A trusted logistics partner
Shipwell is a cloud-based Transportation Management System (TMS) that provides real-time visibility on shipments and a platform to manage an entire supply chain. Connecting to over 2 million ELD-connected units, through APIs, and native mobile apps allows us to provide real-time quoting, booking, and tracking of freight shipments with either our carrier relationships or yours.
Shipwell supply chain transformation
Automation was introduced by consolidating freight into Shipwell’s platform for quoting, booking and tracking. This delivered consistent savings, a better customer service experience, and ultimately reduced their number of claims in half.

By eliminating many of their manual freight management processes and improving visibility, they were able to reduce shipping costs by 16.4% in 6 months, scale their growing business, and reduce food waste through optimizing their supply chain.

With improved workflows, they were able to use fewer employees to manage day-to-day fulfillment and logistics. This allowed them to shift resources typically earmarked for manual booking processes over to more impactful projects to help them scale.
