This award honors top software and technology providers that ensure a safe, efficient and reliable global cold food and beverage supply chain.
ATLANTA – December 15, 2022 – Logility, Inc., a leader in supply chain innovation powering the sustainable and resilient enterprise, was named a winner of this year’s Food Logistics Top Software & Technology Providers award for its work with Oregon dairy manufacturer Tillamook. The esteemed program honors software and technology providers that ensure a safe, efficient and reliable global cold food and beverage supply chain. Logility has received this recognition for the 18th consecutive year.
Logility helped Tillamook gain visibility and optimize its digital supply chain planning to support aggressive expansion goals. Since implementing the Logility® Digital Supply Chain Platform, Tillamook improved its forecast accuracy by 25%, decreased its finished goods inventory by 75% and increased its fill rates to 98%. It also saved $4.2M in spoilage and obsolescence.
“The cold food supply chain faces unique challenges to get its product from source to shelves safely. For leading manufacturers like Tillamook, this means that all teams must be working from one true source of data to ensure consistent, fact-based decision-making across the organization,” said Allan Dow, president, Logility. “With the Logility Digital Supply Chain Platform, supply chain leaders can align their teams effectively while also planning for customer-specific shelf-life requirements – which ultimately optimizes their supply strategies and minimizes obsolescence.”
This year’s award winners were recognized for investing in and implementing emerging technologies, from mobile technology and Internet of Things (IoT) to food safety management, routing and scheduling, yard management and more. Today’s software and technology offerings provide flexibility, efficiency, safety, visibility and more, and offer end-to-end management, from farm to fork, and beyond.
“The supply chain management software segment is projected to reach $18.04 billion this year, according to Statista. This includes all emerging software solutions such as barcode systems, FinTech, inventory control, mobile technology, robotics, wireless technology and more,” said Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief, Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “These providers and their solutions are being implanted to address challenges in the cold food supply chain, whether that be port closures, driver safety or just simply automating a process.”
