FORT LAUDERDALE, FL (December 17, 2014) – Fleet Advantage, a leading innovator in truck fleet business analytics, equipment financing and lifecycle cost management, announces their recognition in the eleventh annual Food Logistics FL100+ list, profiling top technology companies influencing the global food and beverage supply chain. The FL100+ list appears in the magazine’s November/December 2014 issue, as well as online at www.foodlogistics.com.
According to Food Logistics, companies that appear in the annual list have products and solutions that benefit the industry in multiple ways, from reducing food waste and extending shelf life, to facilitating safe and sanitary transportation of product while assuring regulatory compliance.
“The impact of software and technology on the global food supply chain is truly profound,” emphasizes Lara L. Sowinski, Editor-in-Chief at Food Logistics. “Software solution providers, equipment manufacturers and numerous technology innovations are supporting growth in our industry while concurrently lowering operating costs, improving productivity and enhancing visibility from farm to fork.”
Fleet Advantage’s proprietary EXchangeIT™ business model helps food distributors save millions of dollars annually in transportation costs by incorporating technology to fine-tune their client’s transportation lifecycle strategy for greater fuel efficiency and significant reductions in maintenance and repair costs. The technology serves to downstream the transportation asset to the secondary market at the point of economic obsolescence rather than continue to operate it until the point of functional obsolescence. This shift in asset management philosophy also serves to improve corporate image, increase driver retention and helps achieve corporate goals for CO2 emissions reduction.
