SHELTON, Conn., Jan. 07, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Food Logistics, the only publication dedicated exclusively to the global food and beverage supply chain, this week announced the twelfth annual FL100+ list, which appears in the November/December 2015 issue.
For more than a decade, the editors of Food Logistics have profiled software and technology providers 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.”
“The drivers of demand and need for product integrity in the food industry lead to dynamic and complex transportation planning requirements,” says Mitch Weseley, CEO of Shelton, CT based 3GTMS. “Planning and execution for quick turnaround and consideration of multiple constraints in support of the FSMA means that the role of the logistics professional isn’t black and white anymore,” he says. “3GTMS was designed specifically to assist shippers and logistics service providers in addressing these types of issues quickly and easily.”
Over 150 companies applied for this year’s FL100+, more than any prior year. The FL100+ is designed to serve as a resource guide for the readers of Food Logistics. Companies who earned a spot on the FL100+ list are featured in the November/December 2015 issue of Food Logistics, as well as online at www.foodlogistics.com.
