ALC Logistics, a division of the Allen Lund Company, has been named to the 2023 “Top Food Chain Technology” list by Food Chain Digest, the official magazine of Food Shippers of America (FSA). FSA brings together a community of supply chain and logistics professionals from the food and beverage industry and their suppliers in order to facilitate education and networking opportunities and enable supply chain efficiency improvements.
The Top Food Chain Technology program highlights companies and technology that excel in capabilities and service to food transportation, logistics, distribution and supply chain management, according to Brian Everett, group publisher and editorial director of Food Chain Digest.
“Technology has become the backbone of the food supply chain,” said Everett. “Technology platforms, applications and innovators have emerged in the food and beverage market to help bring more efficiency, productivity, and transparency to the food chain. This recognition program highlights technology leaders that are readily available to food shippers in helping them to accomplish their supply chain business goals.”
This is the second year that Food Chain Digest has rolled out this recognition program to aid food shippers seeking innovative and effective technology to integrate into their supply chain management.
Nominations were made by food chain providers and reviewed by the staff of Food Chain Digest. All candidates were required to be a pure technology provider or offer a solution that is a stand-alone product outside of traditional third-party logistics offerings. Nominees must have had a minimum annual gross global sales of U.S. $5 million. Nominees also must have highlighted a recent example in the last 12-18 months of how the solution helped a food shipper accomplish a critical business goal. Next, industry professionals in the food industry were given the opportunity to vote for nominated companies. In total, more that 1,500 people participated during the voting period. Companies that earned a certain amount of votes were validated and finally named to the list.
“Here at ALC Logistics, we love technology, almost as much as we love food. So, to be honored for providing technology to improve the transportation of food through the supply chain, is cause for celebration. Our AlchemyTMS suite of products delivers every day for our customers and we are committed to expanding our products to continue to deliver food all over the US and beyond,” stated Kenny Lund, Executive Vice-President of ALC and ALC Logistics.
