Company Deepens Proprietary Cloud-based Technology Portfolio

Tampa, FL (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - BlueGrace Logistics, one of the largest Third-Party Logistics (3PL) providers in North America, today announced the acquisition of Evos Smart Tools, a SaaS optimization platform that helps shippers maximize resources and reduce costs through advanced supply chain algorithms and real-time data analytics. Financial details of the deal were not disclosed.

“I’m thrilled to have Evos as part of the BlueGrace family,” said Bobby Harris, BlueGrace Founder and CEO. “Our BlueGrace Managed Logistics® clients use technology to ensure every shipment is optimized for efficiency and profitability, in turn giving them sustainable growth and a competitive advantage in the marketplace.

Evos Smart Tools offers advanced order optimization algorithms based on customized business rules, configurable variables, and API connections to create load plans that align with unique customer requirements.
