The world is changing, and so are we.
Every week, new headlines are published about the evolving supply chain crisis. But here’s the thing – the pandemic didn’t create this crisis; it merely hastened its arrival. It exposed and deepened cracks that already lay beneath the surface.
For years, supply chains have grown increasingly globalized and diversified, introducing a fragility that was unprepared to meet the heightening pressures imposed by the rapid growth of e-commerce. Pair this with a logistics industry that has been notoriously slow to innovate, and this crisis appears to have been all but inevitable.
Here’s the kicker: whatever happens with the pandemic, the economic trends that brought us here are only going to accelerate.
In this volatile setting, “business as normal” is not an option. Carriers, brokers, and shippers who can’t rapidly adapt to changing circumstances will inevitably fail, introducing more friction into the supply chain and further threatening the viability of their customers and partners.
Denim is building the financial enablement platform for business leaders who aren’t satisfied with that outcome – those who aren’t looking to simply survive in this environment, but to thrive.
Today, our suite of tools enables our clients to automate their financial operations, unlock the power of their data, and access affordable working capital, so they can leverage this increasingly chaotic landscape as a ladder to climb to new heights.
But this is just the beginning. Our vision is to build a single freight payments network that can serve as a common thread for the movement of all goods. By enabling information to flow between parties more freely, we can reduce the friction that currently plagues global supply chains. While no single government or business can independently dissolve this supply chain crisis or prevent the next, financial enablement will be a critical component of whatever combined solution ultimately does.
Our new brand reflects our broader ambitions to weave ourselves into the everyday fabric of the global freight economy. We are Denim, and we’re on a mission to advance the supply chain by accelerating the movement of money and data. Come join us.
