Atlanta, GA (December 19, 2016)— Food Logistics, the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global food supply chain, has named Chainalytics to its 2016 FL100+ Top Software and Technology Providers list. Chainalytics’ award-winning project focused on alleviating slack fill for a large North American food manufacturer.
“Clients can run into problems when their packaging doesn’t meet slack fill regulatory requirements or consumer expectations,” explained Chainalytics Senior Packaging Engineer Rob Kaszubowski. “Our team of packaging engineers helped the client not only identify immediate targets for packaging optimization and slack fill fine avoidance, but also high-risk slack fill SKUs and over a million dollars of potential savings. Now they’re on track to managing an advanced, cost-saving packaging and transportation operation with increased overall sustainability, due to better use of packaging materials, resized cases, improved pallet efficiency, and consolidated shipping boxes.”
“The software and technology sector continues to generate new and exciting opportunities for growers, food manufacturers, grocery retailers and the many logistics providers that support them,” added Lara L. Sowinski, editorial director at Food Logistics. “Today’s 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.”
Companies on this year’s 2016 FL100+ Top Software and Technology Providers list will be profiled in the November/December 2016 issue of Food Logistics, as well as online at www.foodlogistics.com. The list serves as a resource guide of software and technology providers whose products and services are critical for companies in the global food and beverage supply chain.
