Partnership to deliver an industry standard geospatial information model for supply chain data exchange and analysis, providing real-time transparency and a frictionless flow of goods on a global scale

Saybrook, a logistics and supply chain conglomerate, today announced a strategic relationship with Esri, the global leader in location intelligence, to transform the logistics industry through joint technology innovation based on Esri’s ArcGIS system.

This strategic partnership enables transparency, standardization, and advanced analytics across all channels of a connected digital and physical global supply chain ecosystem. By leveraging Esri’s widely adopted cloud-based geospatial platform to build a common foundation and data standard enabling compatibility, visibility and analytics across the supply chain ecosystem, the partnership will deliver a compelling environment for developers to build solutions to thousands of logistics challenges.

“Built upon ArcGIS, the gold standard in geospatial intelligence, today’s announcement marks a turning point in the struggle to modernize the movement of goods by creating a digitalized pathway with end-to-end visibility,” said Jonathan Rosenthal, CEO of Saybrook Management Group. “We are ecstatic about our partnership with Esri and look forward to growing our strong ties.”

Location intelligence is the key to ensuring data consistency across global supply chains and reducing systemic bottlenecks. Through spatially-enabled digital transformation, firms can have more effective flow of goods to substantially reduce environmental impacts of moving goods, which today is one of the largest inorganic contributors to global warming.

“Our teams look forward to working with Saybrook as we develop specialized programs, services and solutions that help the industry transform the way goods are moved around the globe, yielding higher efficiencies and increased customer service levels,” said Cindy Elliott, Head of Industry Marketing Solutions, Manufacturing and Logistics at Esri.

As an Esri Strategic Alliance, Saybrook joins a select group of leading global organizations combining their resources and technology with Esri to collaborate on products, services, and programs that leverage location intelligence to bring innovative solutions to their common clients and industries.

“This strategic alliance will offer new opportunities to producers and consumers in the global supply chain ecosystem and effectively transform the technology backbone of the industry,” said Robert Laudati, Director, Global Partners and Alliances at Esri. “We are privileged to work with Saybrook as a leader in the supply chain industry and welcome them to our partner network.”

Together, Saybrook and Esri’s partnership creates a pathway for effective cross-industry strategies, efficient supply chain workflows and increased workflow transparency to improve the entire ecosystem. Learn more about Saybrook and Esri at
