Following the release of the 12th annual Food Logistics magazine's Top 100 Software and Technology Providers announcement, FreightCenter places once again on the list of companies that provide services for food and beverage transportation in Florida. An industry-leading third-party logistics (3PL) company based out of the Tampa Bay area, FreightCenter specializes in technology that allows manufacturers, distributors and retailers to consolidate, track and audit shipments. This is the second time FreightCenter has been honored by the food and beverage industry for its freight shipping technology.
For more than a decade, the editors of Food Logistics have profiled software and technology providers, such as FreightCenter, that hold influential roles in the global food and beverage supply chain. Their service benefits the industry in multiple ways, from reducing transportation waste to facilitating logistics for regulated food and beverage products.
"Developments in the software and technology sector are generating new opportunities for growers, food manufacturers, grocery retailers and the many logistics providers that support them," notes Lara L. Sowinski, editor-in-chief at Food Logistics. "Moreover, cloud-based solutions and mobile connectivity are helping create tools that are more flexible, affordable and responsive, making software and technology even more valuable to those in the global food supply chain."
"We are proud to be selected as a top performing software provider for the food and beverage industry," says Doug Walls, chief operating officer at FreightCenter. "Manufacturers, distributors and retailers are our core customers and helping them meet their business goals is an essential function of our technology."
Like any other 3PL in the industry, FreightCenter arranges freight shipments on behalf of customers who ship less-than-truckload (LTL) freight, full or partial truckloads, and specialized freight throughout the United States, Canada, as well as to international countries. What sets FreightCenter apart from its competitors is its technology. From online account management and tracking to a managed transportation management system (TMS), the technology FreightCenter develops is unique to the industry and recommended by customers in a variety of industries.
