Chicago Virtual User Group Meeting: Developing an Analytics-first Approach in the Logistics Industry


Dec 2, 2020, 6:00 – 7:00 PM


About this event

Redwood Logistics is a data-driven global logistics and transportation management company. In order to best serve their customers, they have continuously brought forward-thinking technology and innovation to an industry that rewards data-driven approaches. With a centralized data hub, Redwood is able to bring financial, operational, and external data together to quickly provide actionable insights to both their internal business users and their customers.

Logistics is a fast-paced industry that requires you to analyze thousands of data points to make quick, informed decisions in order to be competitive in the market. In an industry with so many moving pieces, Redwood needed to enable near-real-time decision making for both their internal operations and for their customers. With Snowflake, Redwood was able to transform their organization by rapidly prototyping and operationalizing dashboards against a data discovery layer while, in parallel, building out the long-term data engineering solution.

Join us for our next Snowflake User Group on December 2nd at 12pm CST to hear Cole Kardys, VP of Analytics for Redwood Logistics and Evi Hatzopoulos, Logistics Data Consultant at Aptitive discuss:

1. Gaining quick business wins without waiting for a fully functional data engineering solution

2. Modeling a data vault and multiple data marts to support various business segments & external customers

3. Rapid experimentation with external data sources to quickly provide customers with the insights they need
