It's the third straight year and the fifth time that Logistics Plus has been recognized by Supply & Demand Chain Executive for a top supply chain project.
Erie, PA (June 16, 2021) – Logistics Plus Inc. (LP), a leading worldwide provider of transportation, logistics, and supply chain solutions, is proud to announce it has been selected by Supply & Demand Chain Executive, an industry-leading publication covering the entire global supply chain, as a recipient of the Top Supply Chain Projects Award for 2021. This is the third consecutive year and the fifth time in the past six years that Logistics Plus has been honored for managing a top global supply chain project.
The Top Supply Chain Projects Award (formerly known as the SDCE 100) spotlights successful and innovative transformation projects that deliver bottom-line value to small, medium, and large enterprises across various supply chain functions. These projects show how supply chain solution and service 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 was an optimized load planning solution for a client in the industrial glove industry. The client received a large purchase order for 27 containers of product from a major big-box retailer via an Excel file that consisted of hundreds of lines and dozens of columns. Due to the complexity of the file, the client needed assistance building a load plan that would optimize container space for shipping. The Logistics Plus team used 3-D modeling software to build visual load plans and then filled the empty spaces with additional products to fully optimize the containers. As a result, Logistics Plus was able to identify 25 open pallet positions, which increased the client's purchase order by $250,000. Logistics Plus also handled the FOB transportation of the goods.
"The supply chain industry has been challenged with a host of supply chain disruptions over the last year. Yet, the winners on this list continued to re-tool and innovate," says Marina Mayer, editor for Supply & Demand Chain Executive and Food Logistics. "Whether it be moving a customer to a cloud-based solution or implementing a more sustainable shipping option, these top supply chain projects reflect the supply chain industry's strength and resilience to overcome disruptions and work better, smarter and more efficiently in the years ahead."
"This project was spearheaded by our in-house Delta Team, a group of bright people who specialize in creating unique, out-of-the-box solutions to many of the supply chain challenges that companies bring to us," said Jim Berlin, Founder and CEO of Logistics Plus. "I am very proud of our award-winning project teams. Thank you to Supply & Demand Chain Executive for recognizing us, once again, with one of their top supply chain awards."
