Top Supply Chain Project 2024_vertical [color]NEWARK, NJ – June 12, 2024Supply & Demand Chain Executive, the only publication covering the entire global supply chain, and Food Logistics, the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global cold food supply chain, named PLM TrustLink® as the winner of this year’s Overall Top Supply Chain Projects award, which profiles innovative case study-type projects designed to automate, optimize, and streamline the supply chain.

This award honors PLM TrustLink for its comprehensive, cloud-based IoT management track and trace solution for the cold supply chain, in relation to the ground-breaking study monitoring the frozen food mango supply chain. This project involved the sustainability of the frozen mango by collection of data at all locations from harvest until delivery to the frozen product to the consumer. The data needed for Life Cycle Assessments (LCA) was collected during the 12 phases between production in Peru and delivery to a location in Midwest U.S. The overall objective of this project was to collect information about the supply chain and identify opportunities for improvements in sustainability of the supply chain to reduce the carbon footprint in distribution while saving time and money for all stakeholders.  

“We are honored to win this prestigious award for our study on the sustainability impact across the supply chain,” said Don Durm, VP Customer Solutions. “Together with The Ohio State University, PLM TrustLink® has collected and analyzed data through all phases of the frozen mango supply chain from Peru to Ohio. During this 6-month process, we collected temperature, location, and time to freeze throughout this journey.”

“The past 12 months has seen companies within the supply chain and logistics space upgrade, enhance, adopt and adapt in order to achieve greater efficiency along the chain. Companies implemented others' software and technology to work smarter, together. Their partnerships cultivated resilience and placed a spotlight on projects designed to make the supply chain space safer and more efficient,” says Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Supply & Demand Chain Executive and Food Logistics. “And, now it's time to celebrate those projects!”
