Online PR News – 14-June-2012 – CA – Alameda, CA, June 12, 2012 -- PINC Solutions, North America’s leading provider of supply chain visibility and advanced yard management solutions (YMS), today announced the editors of Supply & Demand Chain Executive Magazine named PINC Solutions and one of its customers to its 11th annual listing of the Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100. The 2012 award highlights the "100 Great Supply Chain Projects."
"Our readers count on Supply & Demand Chain Executive for intelligence and decision-making information on solutions and best practices for supply chain transformation," said Barry Hochfelder, Editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. "With this year's Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100, we are featuring '100 Great Supply Chain Projects' that demonstrate the broad spectrum of opportunities for enabling excellence in the supply chain."
The PINC customer selected by the magazine as one of the great supply chain projects in 2012 is a leading third-party logistics (3PL) company. The company achieved savings by increasing the yard-goat drivers' productivity, reducing average travel distance within the yard, streamlining communication between drivers and the shipping office and eliminating the manual yard-check process. It also provided operators the ability to share data with freight carriers and customers; and utilized the system to resolve detention claims from their carriers.
"Our goal with this year's '100' is to put the spotlight on successful and innovative transformation projects that are delivering bottom-line value to small, medium and large enterprises across the different functions that comprise the supply chain," Hochfelder added. "The projects featured in the '100' article can serve as a roadmap for supply chain executives looking for new opportunities to drive improvement in their own operations."
“Helping our customers to overcome their supply chain and logistics challenges and operate more efficiently is at the forefront of our strategy,” Said Ken Colby, PINC Solutions’ CEO. “As our customers increasingly view their supply chain as a complex and dynamic network of trading partners, PINC continues to focus on leveraging real-time visibility as the key enabler for management and practitioners to make informed decisions. We strive to provide solutions that not only meet our customers' needs for quick ROI, but also function as a catalyst for business process improvement and redesign for sustainable logistics excellence.”
