Working in close partnership with our BCO clients, EDRAY is well positioned to affect change in the supply chain which has been great to be part of. Innovating with every move has always been my goal and we’re well positioned with the volume of freight moving through the platform. The industry has never needed the services EDRAY offers more than it does today. Our objective is clear, to improve the throughput of the final import mile,” said Brett.
“Furthermore, Reade Kidd, our CEO, offers a unique and meaningful perspective from the retail end of the business, due to his many years running the international supply chain at Home Depot. We have a very BCO centric view of the supply chain and understand where we need to focus to deliver the ROI our clients are looking for. In addition, new strategic investor and board member, Andrew Leto, founder and CEO of Emerge, has joined Ken Kellaway, Chairman and Co-Founder of EDRAY, and other amazing investors and advisors that we have around EDRAY. These are winners that you want to have on your side – hands down.”
