STAMFORD, Conn., May 15, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Daymon Worldwide has announced the launch of Daymon Global Logistics, a new transportation management and logistics support solution that will provide added value for its retail and supplier partners. With this launch, Daymon has developed a strategic relationship with Echo Global Logistics, a leading provider of technology-enabled transportation and supply chain management services headquartered in Chicago, to support their technology and transportation management requirements.
"We recognize that cost pressures and logistics challenges are ongoing concerns for many suppliers and retailers," said Carla Cooper, chief executive officer of Daymon Worldwide. "The availability of certified compliant carriers, the time required to book and monitor loads, and the need for competitive rates are just some of the supply chain issues our partners must deal with on a daily basis. By combining the sourcing expertise of Daymon with the transportation sourcing, proprietary technology, and comprehensive network of carriers from Echo, Daymon Global Logistics will be able to provide a streamlined, one-stop solution, for our partners."
Echo maintains a network of over 24,000 carriers, which will now be available to Daymon Global Logistics at market competitive rates, along with a customized web portal to provide increased visibility and control of the supply chain. "Daymon supplier and retail partners will now have the ability to leverage our proprietary technology and take full advantage of a transportation and logistics management team to meet the individual needs of each Daymon partner," stated Doug Waggoner, CEO of Echo Global Logistics.
The new venture is effective May 1, 2012.
