FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Logistics Plus Receives 2019 Supply & Demand Chain Executive SDCE 100 Top Supply Chain Projects Award
Recognition earned for increasing supply chain visibility and improving routing reliability for a Fortune 100 global manufacturer.
ERIE, PA. (June 25, 2019) – Logistics Plus Inc., a leading worldwide provider of transportation, logistics and supply chain solutions, is proud to announce it has been selected by Supply & Demand Chain Executive, the executive’s user manual for successful supply and demand chain transformation, as a recipient of a 2019 “SDCE 100” Top Supply Chain Projects Award. This is the third time in the past four years that Logistics Plus has been honored with an award.
The SDCE 100 is an annual list of 100 great supply chain projects. These projects can serve as a map for supply chain executives who are looking for new opportunities to drive improvement in their own operations, and they show how supply chain solution and service providers help their customers and clients achieve supply chain excellence and prepare their supply chains for success.
The supply chain project submitted by Logistics Plus that earned this year’s recognition involved the successful implementation of new supply chain processes for a Fortune 100 aerospace manufacturer that increased supply chain visibility, improved routing reliability, and increased network velocity by almost five days. In less than 30 days, Logistics Plus worked with its client to map out and isolate individual supply chain processes. Local teams were created to coordinate routings between suppliers and carriers, and to capture important data points for continuous improvement. As a result, the customer can now view business intelligence through live dashboards that show aggregate trends to help identify the root causes of delays in transportation.
“Every year our list of submissions for the SDCE 100 continues to grow as more companies rely on the expertise of supply management for innovative decision-making. Our winners raise the bar for what is achievable in the supply chain,” says John R. Yuva, editor for Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “With a variety of company sizes and industry sectors represented, our Top 100 are leading examples for how to approach and solve supply chain challenges. Congratulations to our 2019 winners and the projects that delivered greater operational efficiencies and bottom-line results across the supply chain.”
“Logistics is in our DNA, and these are the sorts of things we do for our customers every day,” said Jim Berlin, founder and CEO of Logistics Plus. “I am very proud of our award-winning solutions team. Thank you to Supply & Demand Chain Executive for recognizing us, once again, with one of their top supply chain awards.”
