Food Logistics Releases Annual List of Software and Technology Providers
PALM HARBOR, Fla. – December 17, 2015 – FreightCenter, Inc., is proud to announce its inclusion in the 2015 Food Logistics FL100+ list. An industry-leading third-party logistics (3PL) company based out of the Tampa Bay area, FreightCenter specializes in technology that allows manufacturers, distributors and retailers to consolidate, track and audit shipments.
In addition to its all-inclusive less-than-truckload and full-truckload freight services, FreightCenter develops a web-based transportation management system (TMS) that provides a centralized method of controlling all aspects of transportation. As fuel costs and freight capacity are in a constant flux, supply chains are investing in TMS software in order to have a more transparent view of their supply chain practices.
For more than a decade, the editors of Food Logistics have profiled software and technology providers, such as FreightCenter, that hold influential roles in the global food and beverage supply chain. Their products benefit the industry in multiple ways, from reducing food waste and extending shelf life, to facilitating safe and sanitary transportation of product while assuring regulatory compliance.
“Developments in the software and technology sector are generating new opportunities for growers, food manufacturers, grocery retailers and the many logistics providers that support them,” notes Lara L. Sowinski, editor-in-chief at Food Logistics. “Moreover, cloud-based solutions and mobile connectivity are helping create tools that are more flexible, affordable and responsive, making software and technology even more valuable to those in the global food supply chain.”
“We are proud to be selected as a top performing software provider for the food and beverage industry,” says Doug Walls, chief operating officer at FreightCenter. “Manufacturers, distributors and retailers are our core customers and helping them meet their business goals is an essential function of our technology.”
