Atlanta, Ga. (PRWEB) December 20, 2011
Transportation pricing technology provider SMC³ today announced that it has been named to Food Logistics magazine’s 2011 “FL100” list. Now in its 8th year, the annual FL100 listing recognizes 100 software and technology providers that better enable grocery and foodservice distributors and manufacturers to realize their business goals.
To compile their 2011 FL100 list, Food Logistics accepted nominations from end users and solution providers. They reviewed 160 submissions, focusing on solution providers that help customers to differentiate themselves in the marketplace and improve safety and traceability throughout the supply chain. According to Food Logistics’ editor-in-chief, Lara L. Sowinski, the passage of the FDA’s Food Safety and Modernization Act is putting the entire food and beverage sector under increased pressure, along with the ongoing globalization of food supply chains, which demands “closer collaboration with suppliers and enhanced visibility from farm to fork.” Sowinski noted that technology is a powerful tool that can ensure compliance, mitigate risk and serve as a market differentiator.
"It's an honor for SMC³ to be chosen for the FL100 list," said Jack E. Middleton, president and CEO of SMC³. "We are pleased to be able to provide business-enhancing technology, services and content—often delivered via our software as a service (SaaS) platform—to the grocery and food service niche within the transportation industry in support of seamless, accurate transportation processes."
