Accentedge Moving Down The Road: AWS Logistics Solutions to Stay Ahead of the Competition


When one of the fastest-growing logistics companies wants to better manage growth they look to accentedge. With the rising cost of fuel, equipment, and labor, logistics companies have to be smarter in how they ship — and that means utilizing user-friendly, secure cloud technology.

Accentedge worked with Echo Global Logistics to improve its Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud platform. The company wanted to improve its operations and ensure data security.

AWS has become a core component of business survival in today’s competitive market environment. With most business practices becoming virtual and cloud-based, the implementation of stronger and reliable infrastructure has become a necessity.

The solution involved integrating the AWS system to provide a more user-friendly interface that makes it easier for users to access AWS cloud services. It provided streamlined communications, accurate tracking of deliveries, and optimized logistics across all operations.

To help Echo Global Logistics in provisioning secure and approved AWS Service Catalog products via their service now portal we used the “AWS service catalog connector for Service Now” to integrate AWS Service Catalog and ServiceNow. This Connector allows the end users of ServiceNow to Manage, operate, and govern the AWS Service Catalog products securely via Service Now platform.

Some of the benefits of AWS Service Catalog and Service Now Integration are:

  • ServiceNow “End Users” can easily view the AWS service Catalog products and portfolios in the ServiceNow portal.
  • The ServiceNow End users can request to provision, update and terminate the AWS Service Catalog Products from their Service Now Portal.·
  • The Service now “End Users” can also get the AWS cloud Management insights in the service now portal.”

Accentedge then worked with Echo to ensure their cloud operations were secure. The advantage of using AWS is that it allows for communications and operations to be transacted securely using cloud technology. With ransomware and other types of cyberattacks on the rise, the company could not afford to have its logistics operations systems compromised or they would soon lose customers to the competition.

AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) was used to ensure secure communication in the cloud. In addition, AWS Service Catalog and AWS Cloud Formation were used to streamline operations.
