In each edition, we speak with a Datacate client to learn about their business, and how they utilize technology solutions from Datacate to solve problems and deliver services to their clients. In this case study, Ed LaFrance speaks with Glenn Nudell of General Logistics International. Ed and Glenn discuss how GLI utilizes Datacate’s cloud services to provide logistics services and data management to their clients.
Ed: Hello, Glenn! Tell us a bit about you. What is your role at GLI?
Glenn: I am the President and Founder of the company. I started GLI in 1999. I also provide broker services and have negotiated on behalf of small to fortune 500 companies for favorable freight rates.
