Ryder System was named among Food Logistics’ 2020 FL100+ Top Software and Technology Providers for the eighth time. The annual list serves as a resource guide of providers whose products and services are vital for companies in the global food and beverage supply chain.
“The pandemic has proven that technology is more than a competitive advantage for supply chains. It’s absolutely fundamental,” Darin Cooprider, senior vice president of consumer packaged goods for Ryder, said. “Ryder’s ability to deliver real-time visibility and enable collaboration across the entire supply chain means that our customers are able to keep their promises to their customers, even in the most challenging circumstances.”
Ryder’s cloud- and mobile-based technologies support the supply chain for food and beverage industry customers, including nine of the top 10 food and beverage companies. The company’s technology solutions include RyderShare, which delivers real-time visibility, collaboration and exception handling for customers. Additionally, Ryder’s OpsBox is a warehouse analytics platform for labor management, providing shop floor visuals, daily metrics, workforce planning and customer visibility dashboards.
“From fleet management to warehouse management to simply just track and trace along the cold food chain, these software and technology providers have definitely stepped it up to ensure cold food and beverage products continue moving along the line without incident,” Marina Mayer, editor-in-chief of Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive, said. “This pandemic has thrown the food industry a curveball, but many of these providers fast-tracked the development and deployment of their solutions to ensure food safety, traceability, visibility and quality assurance. So, to these winners and others in the industry working to make a difference, thank you.”
