Top technology provider named to FL100
Research Triangle Park, N.C., December 16, 2010 Optricity, supply chain optimization and warehouse slotting software innovator has been named to the seventh annual FL100, Food Logistics’ listing of technology solution and service providers that help food, beverage and CPG companies gain a competitive logistical advantage. In selecting recipients of the FL100, Food Logistics strives to highlight a broad range of technology solutions and services that are targeted at the food industry, addressing the needs of companies of varying sizes that make up the food supply chain. This year’s FL100 theme focused on bouncing back through tough economic times with technology.
“Despite the harsh environment, the past year has seen a number of food and beverage companies implementing technology solutions — especially transportation management and warehouse management systems — where they can see a quick ROI,” explains Katherine Doherty, editor-in-chief of Food Logistics magazine. “Many of our FL100 recipients report that the food industry is still a strong vertical for them — in fact, it’s one of the few markets that they are actually seeing any growth.”
Optricity’s executive vice president, Sheila Benny, responds to the recognition: “The Food Logistics industry represents a strong contingent in our customer base. Ensuring that our software supports the needs of progressive food logistics professionals is an ongoing goal of ours. We’re honored to be recognized as part of the Food Logistics Top 100. Lean warehousing operations demand that optimization, and in particular, slotting optimization, be at the forefront of competitive logistics strategies. Our technologies continue to lead in this arena and are driven by the strong customer partnerships we hold in the food logistics industry.
Final recipients are featured in the November/December 2010 issue of Food Logistics, as well as online at www.foodlogistics.com.
