Blume Global Recent Developments
In January 2022, Blume Global has launched a platform to improve freight visibility with an interline rail schedule solution, saying the tool could help companies that leverage railroad intermodal services to better coordinate cross-country freight deliveries. Built in partnership with Union Pacific Railroad, Norfolk Southern, and CSX, Blume’s end-to-end rail freight scheduler gives users visibility around moving cargo from one railway to another. That is a critical step because cross-country freight deliveries typically require the use of at least two railways and multiple junctions, creating complex schedules that make planning a challenge, said Pervinder Johar, CEO of Blume Global.
Blume Global Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) Activities
In 2022, Blume Global has acquired LiveSource, a multi-enterprise supply chain business network for complex manufacturers. The company, which has offices throughout North America, Europe and Asia, provides sourcing and procurement orchestration technology, among other solutions, to the automotive and industrial manufacturing sectors.

Blume Global Market Opportunities, M&A and Geo Expansions
Blume Global has experienced exponential growth in India in less than two years. Since its Bangalore office opened in 2020, the India team has grown to nearly 400 employees, representing a $10 million investment in the local community. The company's plans for aggressive growth in India is well placed in the backdrop of the Union Budget which had significant focus on the logistics and transport sector. The move to bring Data Exchange among all-mode operators on a unified Logistics Interface Platform, designed for API will be a key factor in Blume Global's India strategy. Given that India's supply chain and logistics costs currently account for 14 per cent of the country's GDP (compared to global average of approximately 8 per cent), this is a great move and will bring India closer to the world standards. Blume can help through its Visibility Solution by utilizing the operator's data by doing the real time tracking of the shipments and also predicting the dynamic ETAs at the final delivery locations.
In September 2021, Blume Global has raised new equity from London-based Bridgepoint Group. This investment will further the company's effort to bring its truly innovative and transformational supply chain digitization to the industry. This latest funding values Blume Global at $500 million, and Bridgepoint joins funds managed by affiliates of Apollo Global Management and EQT as equity investors in the company.
