John Urban is a highly respected and experienced logistics technology executive who co-founded and grew GT Nexus into the world’s largest cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) network for global supply chain management.

Slync’s orchestration platform is enabling unprecedented productivity gains today for some of the world’s largest logistics networks, and we’re just getting started.”
The company’s Logistics Orchestration® platform performs seamless data harmonization and synchronization between and across enterprise technology systems, ad-hoc tools, unstructured data, and manual processes within a single ecosystem for true visibility and unparalleled efficiency. Meta-data drives real-time, transactional insights Slync’s clients can use to collaborate, resolve, or automate intelligent action. This unprecedented level of process productivity, multiparty connectivity, and contextualized data afford logistics teams time to prioritize value-added activities that support the customer, instead of manual administrative processes. With Slync’s solutions, productivity improves in leaps, not increments, with thousands of resource hours added back to the bottom line.
“John comes from the freight industry and shares our passion and focus on moving this industry into the future. We are thrilled to have someone of his caliber, with logistics and technology prowess, step up to lead the charge forward as our new CEO,” stated Stephanie Herminjard, chief operating officer of Slync.io.
