WEST PALM BEACH, FLORIDA, Thursday, December 14, 2017 – Cloud Logistics, a leading innovator and provider of next-generation transportation management systems (TMS), has been named to the 2017 FL100+ Top Software and Technology Providers by Food Logistics, the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global food supply chain.
“Logistics in the food industry is undergoing tremendous change right now,” said Mark Nix, Founder and CEO of Cloud Logistics. “Between rate hikes, capacity constraints, customer demands and industry regulations, companies that never considered a TMS as a top priority investment now see these systems as mission critical. This year, we have been engaged by more food companies than ever before – from produce growers to manufacturers to grocery retailers. We expect 2018 to be another strong year for us with food industry shippers.”
“At PTC, we ship perishable products and manage a brokerage that needs to adhere to increasingly complex federal regulations,” according to Adriana Pero, VP of Transportation & Logistics for PTC Logistics. “We had to find a TMS that could help with our entire network and give us the visibility we need. After studying the market, there was no question that the Cloud Logistics TMS was the right choice for us.”
During 2017, a wide variety of food industry shippers have selected or deployed the Cloud Logistics TMS. These companies include multiple produce growers, a dairy distributor, a sugar producer, a pizza distributor and a 3PL supporting the food industry.
Cloud Logistics offers a broad range of functionality that is vital to food industry shippers. The combination of these features, along with the ease-of-use and rapid implementations Cloud Logistics has become known for, helped the company win this prestigious award. Examples of these capabilities include:
- Vendor portal for ‘ready-to-ship’ notification and supplier collaboration
- Mobile application for visibility and proof-of-delivery
- Integration with GPS devices
- Consolidation and optimization
- Clean, simple carrier portal for the hundreds of smaller carriers supporting food suppliers
- Carrier scorecarding and key performance indicators
“New developments and innovations in the software and technology sector are making sizeable impacts on the global food supply chain,” notes Lara L. Sowinski, editorial director for Food Logistics and its sister publication, Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “The result is a greater visibility, improved regulatory compliance, enhanced shelf life for perishables, and the emergence of a more proactive and nimble food supply chain that benefits both the food industry and its logistics partners, as well as the end consumer.” The annual FL100+ Top Software and Technology Providers list serves as a resource guide of software and technology providers whose products and services are critical for companies in the global food and beverage supply chain. Companies on this year’s 2017 FL100+ Top Software and Technology Providers list will be profiled in the November/December 2017 issue of Food Logistics, as well as online at www.foodlogistics.com.
