SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 15, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Vector, a leading technology solution for improving digital workflows, collaboration and transparency in the supply chain, today announced that it has been recognized as one of the “Best Technologies in the Food Chain” in 2022 by Food chain summary, 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 to facilitate training and networking opportunities and enable improvements in supply chain efficiencies .
The Top Food Chain Technology program recognizes outstanding technologies in 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,” Everett said. “Technology platforms, applications and innovators have emerged in the food and beverage market to help bring greater efficiency, productivity and transparency to the food chain. This recognition program highlights leaders like Vector who are readily available to food shippers to help them achieve their business goals.
Vector has worked with industry leaders such as Perdue Farms, Coca-Cola and Conagra, to digitize their processes at their job sites, giving them advanced visibility into the pre-arrival driver and bill of lading. It has allowed dock coordinators to efficiently allocate dock and yard space, and it has dramatically reduced driver wait times.
These companies wanted to digitize their human process and paper trail to combat COVID-19, increase efficiency, and keep drivers and office workers operational. Vector has helped create more visibility in supply chain partner warehouses by moving information from paper to a digital platform. By collaborating with Vector to digitize logistics systems, these companies have increased employee satisfaction, solved labor shortages, saved money, and improved their overall supply chain.
“Our goal is to enable greater collaboration across the supply chain to help all parties overcome the daily challenges they face,” said Will Chu, CEO and co-founder of Vector. “This award is a testament to our team’s hard work in transitioning traditionally manual processes to more efficient digital operations. Our work throughout the supply chain has proven to speed up operations and enable a seamless experience for all parties involved in moving goods.”
Vector’s end-to-end solution has also helped these companies digitally capture all workflows to facilitate contactless pickups and deliveries for drivers. The technology allows drivers to avoid lineups at facilities by allowing them to take photos of their documents, tag their cargo with a geotag with a phone, and get back on the road. With this, they can receive and send scanned bills of lading and in-truck delivery documents using text messaging (SMS), mobile web or a native app. The system gets drivers back on the road as quickly as possible by avoiding queues at the dispatch office or guard shack.
