UniPro Foodservice has selected NCR Corporation’s Transportation Management system as the backbone of its “Peachtree Logistics” advanced logistics optimization and freight analysis offering.
John Burke, executive vice-president for supply chain at UniPro, said, “This transportation solution allows our cooperative members to have access to the most advanced inbound logistics software on the market. The cloud-based technology ensures everyone is on the same page since software updates roll out unilaterally, which also allows UniPro to more efficiently support our members.”
The NCR Transportation Management system portfolio, which includes transportation optimization, yard and dock management, and proof-of-delivery, is one of the key offerings within the Power Enterprise software suite. The Power Enterprise suite includes solutions for supply chain execution and optimizing the flow of inventory, data, and payment between all trading partners, with a focus on perishable inventory management.
“Efficiency and profitability are the watchwords in the logistics world,” said Todd Michaud, global vice-president and general manager, Global Enterprise, Merchandising, and Supply Chain Solutions at NCR. “Our latest transportation solution allows UniPro to better assist its Peachtree Logistics participants in their freight analysis, emphasizing increased member income and improved on-time performance.”
NCR Transportation Optimization (NTO) enables companies to reduce inbound transportation costs by bidding inbound services to the lowest-cost providers while using the NCR carrier portal for web tendering, shipment status updates, and freight settlement. It can also be used to reduce outbound costs by optimizing load building and shipping routes. The system is now offered as a cloud-based deployment, providing users with a lower cost of ownership, and the ability to always have the latest versions.
UniPro is a foodservice distribution cooperative with more than 650 member foodservice distributor companies serving more than 800,000 clients worldwide.
