The supply chain is fragmented.

We're changing that.

Scheduling Standards Consortium

The Scheduling Standards Consortium (SSC) was formed to simplify the integration of systems across the fragmented ecosystem between shippers, carriers and intermediaries and create a more efficient appointment scheduling process.

We have published our initial scheduling requirements and are working on developing the API specification to be released later this year.

Together, we can move faster and have a greater impact in driving real change and adoption in the industry.

Collaboration for the Industry

Scheduling has been a pervasive problem for the supply chain, but it’s a problem we know can be solved with mutual commitment from industry leaders. With the formation of the SSC, we believe we have the right people leading the way. Will you join us?
