By Pritha Dey
LeanLogistics, a global solutions provider of transportation management system (TMS) applications and supply chain services, has signed on leading independent foodservice distributors Maines Paper & Foodservice, Inc., Reinhart Foodservice, L.L.C., Shamrock Foodservice and Nicholas & Company, Inc. to the growing network of LeanLogistics clients.
The companies collaborated in a comprehensive search and evaluation of TMS software providers. Maines Paper & Foodservice, Inc., Reinhart Foodservice, L.L.C., Shamrock Foodservice and Nicholas & Company, Inc. were all enthusiastic to learn about the innovative software LeanLogistics could provide.
On-demand TMS provides complete daily planning, execution, and settlement functions as well as periodic strategic procurement events. Additionally, companies have access to the LeanLogistics Transportation Network, which provides collaborative opportunities, leading to supplier inbound management, appointment scheduling, business intelligence and reporting capabilities not available in traditionally installed or hosted TMS software.
“On-demand TMS enables complex companies to improve overall supply chain management in a cooperative environment,” said Jeff Potts, SVP of Sales at LeanLogistics. “To be selected by industry-leading foodservice distributors like these for our innovative and collaborative transportation technology is an honor.”
The four independently-owned foodservice distributors provide food products and operational services to companies ranging from single-unit and regional chain restaurants to educational and healthcare institutions to convenience stores, country clubs, camps, and more. Leveraging the shared opportunities presented in the LeanLogistics Transportation Network will enable each of the companies to expand its service offerings and demonstrate a commitment to sustainability and efficiency to its customers.
