Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Sept. 26, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SupplyChainBrain, the world’s most comprehensive supply chain management information source, has named Cloud Logistics as a Top Supply Chain Partner for 2016.
In the August issue of SupplyChainBrain, M&G Duravent’s implementation of the Cloud Logistics TMS is highlighted in a case study (please see ‘Vent Manufacturer Adopts Cloud-Based TMS System’). The manufacturer, which uses SAP for its enterprise resource planning/warehouse management system, needed a transportation management system to manage and automate its less-than-truckload and truckload shipments.
The beauty of the partnership, as Jack Hines, director of distribution, sees it? “Basically, it allows us to put all of our freight out there for bid, at least with TL carriers,” he says. “As far as LTL goes, we negotiate our own rates. We put our own tariffs into the Cloud program, then it tells us who has the best rate, whether we’re shipping from California, New York or wherever. It tells me the cheapest rates, not necessarily the best, but it gives me options, and that’s important.”
How much money has the system saved M&G DuraVent? In the tens of thousands, by Hines’s reckoning. Some discrepancies result from honest mistakes; others occur because partners aren’t necessarily reliable in their own accounting. In either event, Hines says his manufacturing company is ahead of the game.
"Each year, our list of 100 Great Supply Chain Partners features a select group of companies whose customers recognize them for providing outstanding solutions and services,” explains Brad Berger, Publisher, SupplyChainBrain. “Over the course of our six-month online poll, we ask supply chain professionals to nominate vendors and service providers whose solutions have made a significant impact on their company’s efficiency, customer service, and overall supply chain performance. This year we received literally hundreds of nominations for solutions providers in every aspect of supply chain management.”
Mark Nix, CEO of Cloud Logistics, added, “Being a world-class partner to our customers is our top priority. We are not satisfied until every customer is satisfied. Receiving this award is particularly gratifying because it is a direct reflection of the value we provide to shippers and third party logistics providers every day. The success customers like M&G Duravent have achieved is why we do what we do.”
Cloud Logistics is exhibiting at the annual Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals conference in Orlando, Florida September 24-26. Companies can stop by booth 418 for more information and a demonstration of the software.
