FSA Food Chain Technology Award, FSA Top Food Chain Technology Award, 2022 FSA Top Food Chain Technology Award, PLM Fleet, PLM Trailer Leaser NEWARK, NJ – August 21, 2022 - PLM Fleet has been recognized as a 2022 “Top Food Chain Technology” by Food Chain Digest, the official magazine of Food Shippers of America (FSA). This award recognizes PLM TrustLink™ a comprehensive, cloud-based IoT management solution for automated, touchless, supply chain ecosystems.

PLM TrustLink™ captures KDE and CTE data at the item/case/batch/container level or can extend along the entire supply to provide financial, operational and food safety benefits. Once the product is marked, it can be digitized with a unique birth certificate to be shared within the facility or along the supply chain in a permissioned platform to provide real-time inventory data and status of products to drive cost out of the business.

The Top Food Chain Technology program recognizes standout 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, where reliable uptime, efficiency, productivity, and transparency are everything,” says Brian Everett. “The Top Food Chain Technology program recognizes standout technologies and services from leaders such PLM Fleet that help food shippers accomplish their business goals. In particular, PLM Fleet’s comprehensive cloud-based IoT management solution, PLM TrustLink™, helps food shippers to create automated, touchless, supply chain ecosystems.”

According to Everett, this is the first year that Food Chain Digest has deployed this recognition program as an initiative to serve as a resource to food shippers seeking new opportunities to leverage technologies in their supply chain strategy and execution. 

To earn the award, nominations were made by supply chain technology and reviewed by the staff of Food Chain Digest.
