FORT LAUDERDALE (March 19, 2021) – Fleet Advantage, a leading innovator in fleet data analytics, fleet financing solutions, and lifecycle cost management (LCCM) today announced its CEO, John Flynn, has been named to the Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine’s list of 2021 Pros to Know in the supply chain industry for the third consecutive year.
Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine is the executive's user manual for successful supply and demand chain transformation. The Pros to Know Award recognizes outstanding executives whose accomplishments offer a roadmap for other leaders looking to leverage supply chain for competitive advantage. This year’s list includes individuals and teams who have helped supply chain clients and the supply chain community at large prepare to meet many of today’s—and tomorrow’s—challenges.
John Flynn is recognized for the significant impact he’s made in the finance and transportation industries for over three decades. Through his distinctive ability to transform the legacy thinking of supply chain executives, Flynn has had a direct part in reshaping the way the supply chain organizations manage and operate their transportation fleets. Flynn is admired for his financial wisdom while using data and analytics-driven asset management solutions to lower the total cost of ownership, which ultimately increases productivity for those in the supply chain, affecting the bottom line.
Specifically, this year, the global supply chain was drastically affected by COVID-19. Even though the demand for loads increased, shipping rates dropped, placing further financial strain on these organizations and their bottom line.
To help alleviate supply chain organizations of financial strains, Flynn led the Fleet Advantage team in its development of a Sale-Leaseback program. With the Sales-Leaseback program, the organization can select the assets from their fleet that are older models, which are inefficient and more unreliable, and Fleet Advantage will purchase those assets and lease them back to the fleet for an interim period until they can transition to new equipment.
“While many companies have struggled to re-gain their footing as a result of COVID-19, this year’s Pros to Know winners stepped up to the plate to deliver innovative solutions and programs in a time of crisis and need. These winners collaborated, optimized, developed, educated and played a critical role in the survival and success of their company amid a global pandemic,” says Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Supply & Demand Chain Executive and Food Logistics. “I am honored to recognize these individuals and teams and extend my utmost gratitude to everyone in the supply chain industry for their time, efforts and innovations to keep our nation’s supply chains afloat.”
