Logistics Plus Receives 2017 Supply & Demand Chain Executive SDCE 100 Top Supply Chain Projects Award
Cargo project involving the safe delivery of 200-ton stator from Poland to Turkey earns award for second consecutive year
ERIE, Pa. (June 22, 2017) – Logistics Plus Inc., a leading worldwide provider of transportation, logistics and supply chain solutions, is proud to announce – for the second consecutive year – 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 an “SDCE 100” Top Supply Chain Projects 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. These projects show how logistics 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 safe delivery of a 200-ton stator (the stationary portion of an electric generator) from Gdynia, Poland to a Yatagan Thermal Power Plant in Mugla, Turkey on behalf of a Fortune 500 power and energy company.
“Our goal with 2017’s Top 100 is to shine the spotlight on successful and innovative transformation projects that deliver bottom-line value to small, medium and large enterprises across the supply chain,” says Ronnie Garrett, editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “The selected projects can serve as a roadmap for supply chain executives looking for new opportunities to drive improvement in their own operations. We congratulate all of our winners for a job well done!”
“This is another validation that our project cargo experts are among the best in the business,” said Jim Berlin, founder and CEO of Logistics Plus. “We handle many cool logistics projects for major companies all around the world, every day. As we like to say, when it comes to big, bad or ugly cargo projects, that’s where we’re at our best. As you can imagine, moving a 200-ton piece of equipment takes great planning and flawless execution. Our LP Turkey Division was the lead on this project, and they delivered for us, and our customer, yet again.”
