CartonCloud team at the Back to Base 2023

That's a wrap! As 2023 draws to a close, we look back on some of the incredible times and achievements of the year— from our favorite new CartonCloud features to industry ups and downs, customer stories, our growing team, and a whole lot more! 

Join us for a year in review, as we remember some of the top moments of 2023. This year has brought its share of highs and lows for the logistics industry, once again showing the resilience and adaptability of logistics operators to take on new challenges with flexibility, innovation, and determination.

Over the past year, our industry has moved from fast-paced, post-pandemic adaptation, into a demand drop and supply chain reshuffle. We've seen the prioritization of near-shoring, and data-fuelled approaches to demand planning, as communities seek supply chain and last-mile stability.

This year, we have had 8.27m warehouse and transport orders created in CartonCloud. ⚡

November 2023 was our busiest month on record, with;

  • 🚚 Over 4.6 million deliveries, by 4 thousand drivers using CartonCloud TMS, to get their freight delivered on-time. 
  • 📦 Through our WMS, we had an incredible 3.6 million warehouse orders picked, packed, and dispatched

It’s been another massive year of growth for us and our customers, and we can't wait to see what 2024 will bring! 

🙂 Putting our customers first

Our customer success is what drives us, and clearly our powerful WMS and TMS software is what drives you to succeed! Once again this year, our customers grew their businesses with CartonCloud to achieve some incredible milestones!
