Industry-leading logistics solution provider named for the fourth time
SCOTTSDALE, AZ (June 16, 2021) – Supply & Demand Chain Executive, the only publication covering the entire global supply chain, selected RateLinx as a recipient of the Top Supply Chain Projects Award for 2021. This is the fourth year the company has received the award.
This award recognizes RateLinx’s work with a global energy company in 2020. They were looking to leverage their freight spend information to yield broader supply chain efficiencies, make better, faster decisions and reduce costs in the logistics operation. The RateLinx solution enabled the shipper to fully centralize freight audit and payment activities across all divisions. It also standardized and automated processes within a single, integrated system for all carriers. Finally able to measure and monitor performance in real-time, the company improved its logistics performance, reduced transportation costs, and can quickly adjust to changing demands or unexpected events with confidence.
“We are particularly proud of the Top Supply Chain Projects award this year,” says Shannon Vaillancourt, President, and Founder of RateLinx. “After a challenging year for supply chains and shippers, to be recognized for the impact our solutions provide is remarkable. By leveraging our solutions in one of the toughest years, our customers achieved and surpassed their goals, bringing transparency to their data to help them make smart, informed decisions when it mattered most.”
