EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- July 17, 2014

Amber Road, Inc. (NYSE: AMBR), a leading provider of global trade management
(GTM) solutions, today announced the appointment of Nathan Pieri as Chief
Product Officer and the appointment of Cho Ying Davy Ho to its Board of
Directors. John Preuninger will be stepping down from his positions as
President and Chief Operating Officer and as a member of the Board of
Directors, effective July 24, 2014, to pursue other personal and professional
opportunities.

“We would like to thank John for his leadership and dedication in building the
business,” said Barry M. V. Williams, Chairman of the Board of Directors of
Amber Road. “John’s contributions were a significant component in successfully
bringing Amber Road through the initial public offering earlier this year. On
behalf of the entire Amber Road team, we wish John well in all his future
endeavors.”

“I am confident about our current position and the significant growth
potential for the business, and I feel now is the right time to step away from
my day-to-day duties within the company,” said John Preuninger. “As I reflect
back on the growth and development of the organization, I am very proud to
have been a co-founder and the President of Amber Road, building the company’s
current leadership position, while helping our customers more effectively
manage the complexity of their global trade operations.”

Cho Ying Davy Ho, executive director of Swire Properties Limited, has joined
Amber Road’s Board of Directors as an independent director. With China’s
ascendance as the world’s largest trading economy, Mr. Ho’s experience in
managing trade logistics within the region is intended to bolster Amber Road’s
share of this growing market, following its September 2013 acquisition of
EasyCargo (Shanghai) Co., Ltd., a SaaS company focused on China Trade
Management.

Mr. Ho joined the Swire group in 1970 and has worked for the business
development group in Hong Kong, Mainland China and Taiwan. Before assuming his
current position as a Director of Swire Properties Limited, he had been a
Director of Swire Pacific Limited from 1997, of Hong Kong Aircraft Engineering
Company Limited from 1999 and of John Swire & Sons (HK) Limited from 1995. He
was also Chairman of the Swire group’s Taiwan operations and of a number of
Group companies with shipping and travel interests. Mr. Ho joined Swire
Properties Limited in 2010 with responsibility for developing government and
joint venture relationships.

“With significant leadership positions at various multi-national companies
within the Swire group, Davy has vast expertise in shipping and logistics,
particularly in the greater China region. I expect China will play a
significant role in Amber Road’s long-term growth strategy, and we look
forward to benefitting from Davy’s experience,” said Williams.

Additionally, the company announced that it has appointed Nathan Pieri as
Chief Product Officer. He will report directly to CEO Jim Preuninger and will
be a member of the Amber Road senior management team. Mr. Pieri returns to
Amber Road after two years as Senior Vice President of Portfolio Product
Management & Software Delivery for Triple Point Technology. For a ten-year
period, Nathan worked as Amber Road’s Senior Vice President, Marketing and
Product Management and was responsible for product strategy and global
marketing. Prior to his first appointment with Amber Road, he held senior
marketing and product management roles at other enterprise software companies
such as Celarix and Baan (Infor). Earlier in his career, Mr. Pieri was a
strategy and supply chain management consultant at Coopers & Lybrand and held
various operating roles at General Electric, where he started his career in
the manufacturing management program.

“Nathan’s expertise in supply chain management and enterprise software
development, along with his familiarity with Amber Road, are vital assets as
he will lead the product development, global trade content and professional
services teams worldwide,” said Jim Preuninger, CEO of Amber Road. “Nathan is
a great complement to our existing senior management team who have unmatched
experience across the development, delivery and service of global trade
management solutions.”

Amber Road today also announced preliminary unaudited financial results for
the quarter ended June 30, 2014. The company currently expects to exceed the
guidance ranges given on May 13, 2014. These financial results are preliminary
in nature, are subject to the company completing its second quarter review
process, and are subject to change. The company expects to release its second
quarter 2014 financial results after the market closes on August 7, 2014.
