Global Connectivity with Chicago Roots

Launched in 2014, project44 has quickly become the leading enterprise cloud provider of intelligent web-service APIs to the global supply chain.

project44 brings together a unique blend of domain and technology experience that could only be found in Chicago, a key transportation hub for more than 150 years and home to one of the fastest growing tech and startup communities.

What’s in a name?

US Highway 66 was constructed in 1926. The highway, which became one of the most famous roads in America, originally connected Chicago, through Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona before ending in Santa Monica, California. It covered a total of 2,448 miles.

Thirty years later, transportation had evolved. Engines advanced and infrastructure expanded as population numbers multiplied and consumerism grew. Legacy highway systems that once connected the US could not support the new ways of doing things, without progressing. Engineers sought out more direct routes between cities and towns. In 1953, the first major bypass of US 66 was constructed. It was called Highway 44.

For decades, web-service APIs have transformed other industries, acting as the building blocks for the most dynamic SaaS applications of today and allowing data to be transmitted from one system to another in nanoseconds.
