Logility Inc., a leading supplier of collaborative solutions to optimize the supply chain, today announced Food Logistics magazine has selected Logility for the ninth consecutive year for inclusion in its annual FL100. Logility Voyager Solutions™ was recognized for driving enhanced, end-to-end supply chain visibility and helping food and beverage companies boost supply chain efficiency. More than 165 companies submitted applications to be considered as a top technology provider to the food and beverage industries. “With the evolution of the food supply chain, software and technology providers are playing a more critical role in addressing needs such as end-to-end visibility and collaboration, traceability, regulatory compliance, risk management, sustainability, and cost containment,” notes Lara L. Sowinski, editor-in-chief of Food Logistics. “Technology is the competitive differentiator for companies in our industry who need to stay ahead of dynamic changes in the marketplace.” Seasonality, new product introductions to meet changing consumer tastes, and food production and transportation needs for fresh-pack, frozen and shelf stable items add significant complexity to the supply chain.
