Internet-based supply chain service provider Logistics.com has introduced what it calls a “standards-based” online logistics system called Logistics Event Management Architecture (LEMA).

The company said it developed LEMA as an “open” system to allow for the seamless flow of information among supply chain and logistics customers as well as other participants such as providers of information technology and services.

Logistics.com said LEMA has three primary benefits, which are intra- and inter-enterprise application integration, free flow of information and the reduction of cycle time in processing logistics events such as simultaneous offer and acceptance of shipment moves. LEMA simplifies the integration of legacy systems and protocols with Internet-enabled systems and protocols, helping companies working within a particular supply chain operate together more smoothly.
