UniPro Foodservice Selects NCR Transportation Management Solution

Stocks in this article: NCR

NCR Corporation, the global leader in consumer transaction technologies, announced today that UniPro Foodservice has selected NCR’s Transportation Management solution as the backbone of their “Peachtree Logistics” advanced logistics optimization and freight analysis offering.

“UniPro has enjoyed a long and productive relationship with innovative companies that are now part of the NCR solutions portfolio,” says John Burke, executive vice president for Supply Chain at UniPro Foodservice. “This transportation solution allows our cooperative members to have access to the most advanced inbound logistics software on the market. The cloud-based technology ensures everyone is on the same page since software updates roll out unilaterally, which also allows UniPro to more efficiently support our members.”

The NCR Transportation Management solution portfolio, which includes transportation optimization, yard and dock management, and proof-of-delivery, is one of the key offerings within the Power Enterprise software suite. The Power Enterprise suite includes solutions for supply chain execution and optimizing the flow of inventory, data and payment between all trading partners, with a special focus on excellence in perishable inventory management.

“Efficiency and profitability are the watch words in the logistics world,” says Todd Michaud, global vice president and general manager, Global Enterprise, Merchandising and Supply Chain Solutions at NCR. “Our latest transportation solution allows UniPro to better assist its Peachtree Logistics participants in their freight analysis, emphasizing increased member income and improved on-time performance.”

NCR Transportation Optimization (NTO) enables companies to reduce inbound transportation costs by bidding inbound services to the lowest-cost providers while using the NCR carrier portal for web tendering, shipment status updates and freight settlement. It can also be used to reduce outbound costs by optimizing load building and shipping routes. The solution is now offered as a cloud-based deployment, providing users with a lower cost of ownership, and the ability to always have the latest versions of the solution.
