Food Producer & Distributor Implements Transportation Management System Software – Expanding Footprint of the NJ-Based Logistics IT Provider among Leading US Food Shippers
October 6, 2016 – Fair Lawn, NJ – UltraShipTMS proudly announces the latest addition to its “mushrooming” roster of valued client companies – Giorgio Foods Xpress. Beginning as a mushroom grower in 1928, Giorgio expanded into a fully integrated grower, processor and distributor of fresh, frozen, canned and jarred food products for Retail, Industrial and Educational markets. UltraShipTMS is to implement its industry leading transportation management system (TMS) to automate Giorgio’s inbound and outbound shipping processes.
Giorgio also elected to enable Ultra’s LoadFusion optimization module for achieving the most effective loading, rating and routing of truckload and LTL shipments, as well as Ultra’s Private Fleet Management tools to manage the food shipper’s private fleet resources.
Giorgio Foods Xpress is just the latest high volume food shipper to elect to implement the UltraShipTMS solution which has become the logistics IT solution favored by leading food shipping organizations. Giorgio joins esteemed food producers, distributors and packagers using the UltraShipTMS platform such as Perdue Farms, Tyson Foods, Land O’ Lakes, Aurora Organic Dairy, KeHE Distributors, and the Ardagh Group.
Rainer Tauchert, the UltraShipTMS Implementation Manager assigned to the new Giorgio Foods Xpress project expressed confidence that the deployment of the UltraShipTMS platform will drive significant results. Tauchert said, “We’re confident Giorgio Foods Xpress will experience similar improved manageability and increased visibility over transportation data and overall functionality enjoyed by our many other food shipping customers. Replacing existing outbound manual processes with UltraShipTMS, Giorgio Foods Xpress will experience more manageable dispatching and the ability to pre-build shipments. In addition, the solution will improve communication to drivers and yield numerous other recognizable efficiency gains and cost reductions.”
CIO for The Giorgi Companies, Gary Burkert, was upbeat about the new technology which aligns nicely with Giorgio’s deep commitment to continuous improvement and food supply chain innovation. Burkert said, “This implementation is one of several key investments Giorgio is making in pursuit of the ‘Supply Chain of the Future’. Embracing a technology like UltraShipTMS extends this forward-looking principle across all supply chain logistics processes and results in even better service and satisfaction for all Giorgio’s customers.”
