Following the acquisition of GateHouse Logistics, Europe’s leading visibility provider based in Denmark, in December 2018, project44 has built the largest visibility network available in the market representing coverage across more than 48 countries, integrations with 600+ telematics providers, and connections to more than 8.5M vehicles worldwide.

project44 has developed the industry’s only fully automated and secure carrier onboarding application, which can connect European Truckload carriers into its Advanced Visibility Platform™ within hours. Unlike other visibility providers that rely on manual onboarding methods, this unique approach to connectivity enables project44 to offer highly compliant advanced visibility coverage to its customers across Europe starting on day one.

“To meet evolving customer demands, global businesses are transforming their supply chains, requiring high-fidelity, real-time insight into their entire shipment process, regardless of region. Expanding our visibility coverage into new regions allows our customers to gain an end-to-end view into their global, multimodal shipments,” stated project44 Founder and CEO Jett McCandless. “Renaud has substantial experience helping global supply chains and organizations take a hyper-local approach. We’re excited to have him join the team and lead our European efforts.”

Prior to joining project44 in July 2019, Houri held various sales leadership positions at SaaS companies and in the logistics and transportation industry, including Senior Vice President of Global Business Development at Shippeo; Senior Vice President of Central, Eastern, and Southern Europe at Trace One; and Vice President and General Manager of EMEA at IBM DemandTec. His experience leading organizations in Europe for global companies will be imperative as project44 continues expansion in Europe and beyond.

“While many supply chains are global, it’s critical to understand the nuisances of local markets in order to streamline operations and reduce costs. project44 is dedicated to providing the value of a single visibility provider,” commented Houri. “I look forward to supporting organizations throughout Europe, enabling our customers to build a more efficient supply chain and provide an unmatched customer experience.”

As project44’s second European location, the Paris office will allow the visibility provider to better support customers across Europe. In addition to their European offices in Denmark and France, project44 has local teams in Germany, Netherlands, Italy, and Spain. With global customers, including many leading retailers, manufacturers and logistics service providers based in Europe, project44’s local teams are able to account for the distinct attributes of regional logistics operations, provide better support to customers across several time zones, and deliver documentation and materials in more than 13 languages.
