On this episode of the Digital Supply Chain podcast, I spoke with Christian Piller. Christian is Vice President of Value Engineering at project44 (appropriately known as @freightpipes on Twitter). project44 is a US based company operating globally who bill themselves as "the world's leading Advanced Visibility Platform for shippers and third-party logistics firms". Christian explained the business in detail (using the example of a Spanish Widget manufacturer (!), and how project 44 would help the manufacturer see where it's shipments of supplies were, as well as potentially its shipments of goods to its customers, and their customers, and so on.We had a fascinating conversation, and I really liked Christian's point towards the end about the visibility of data - listen for yourselves, and let me know what you think.Now we are in June, I am trialling a new feature on the podcast - listeners stories. If you have a cool supply chain story you'd like featured on the show, send it to me via email (tom.raftery @, or just send it to me as a direct message on Twitter/LinkedIn.
