Atlanta transportation technology company named to FSA list

Transportation technology company nuVizz has been named to the Food Shippers of America top 2023 Food Chain Technology list, recognizing the last mile delivery specialist for excellence in food logistics software.

The Atlanta-based company’s visibility and quality assurance controls have improved asset utilization by 30% to 35% for its food chain customers, according to a news release. Its software provides real-time tracking of perishable food products through GS1 barcode scanning at pickup and delivery points.

“When it comes to the delivery of perishable food, there’s another added layer of complexity in the process where food shippers need to see the temperature of their vans, check on safety controls, and know exactly where their product is in the chain of custody at all times,” Gururaj Rao, nuVizz CEO, said in the release. “By integrating all cold chain stakeholders in one place, not only are food shippers gaining that visibility but they’re also able to scale their business more quickly because the platform grows with them as they grow.”

Food shippers using nuVizz’s logistics software can connect multiple fleet and delivery partners and end customers including wholesale, retail and restaurants. The company also creates customized workflows to optimize loading and unloading of vehicles by temperature zones.

“Inclusion in the FSA 2023 Top Food Chain Technology list bears testament to the years we’ve spent building a true network-based delivery orchestration platform,” Rao said. “With real-time visibility, our customers can overcome any inefficiencies and uncertainty up and down the chain. This proves especially valuable for those working in the cold chain where temperature control and ETA accuracy are non-negotiable.”

The 2023 Top Food Chain Technology list recognizes companies in food transportation, logistics, distribution and supply chain management that offer innovative cold chain solutions outside of traditional third-party logistics offerings.

“Technology has become the backbone of the food supply chain,” Brian Everett, publisher/advisor of Food Shippers of America, said. “Technology platforms, applications and innovators have emerged in the food and beverage market to help bring more efficiency, productivity, and transparency to the food chain. This recognition program highlights technology leaders that are readily available to food shippers in helping them to accomplish their supply chain business goals.”
