Philadelphia, PA—June 25, 2018—Transporeon Group Americas, a global provider of a cloud-based supply chain execution platform encompassing transportation management, carrier sourcing and dock scheduling, was chosen for a 2018 SDCE 100 award from Supply & Demand Chain Executive. The Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100 award recognizes innovative ideas and solutions that guide industry leaders to maximize efficiency, profitability and more. Transporeon Group was selected based on a project with a global, market-leading steel wire transformation and coating technologies manufacturer that deployed the Transporeon Shipment Execution and Dock Scheduling solutions, giving the supply chain management team the ability to better plan and execute a controlled transportation strategy that resulted in improved information exchange and significant cost savings.
“We are extremely pleased to be the recipient of a prestigious award that recognizes the way we help our customers gain transparency into their transportation processes,” said Ed Moran, managing director and senior vice president of sales and marketing at Transporeon Group Americas. “Being honored for a project that allows our customer to realize significant improvements through automation and increased carrier collaboration by building on enterprise solutions already in place further validates our core value.”
“First and foremost, we want to congratulate the winners of this year’s Top 100 for their successful and innovative projects, which serve as models to companies of all sizes for what is achievable in their supply chains,” says John Yuva, editor for Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “Regardless of company size, these projects are best-in-class examples of the types of efficiencies and bottom-line results that supply chain executives should be striving toward in their own operations. Our 2018 winners provide a roadmap for how to get there.”
The 2018 Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100 spotlights a few of the industry’s most successful and transformational projects that deliver value to enterprises across a range of supply chain functions.
