Cold chain traceability company wins annual supply chain award

Cold chain traceability management company PLM TrustLink has been named the winner of this year’s Overall Top Supply Chain Projects award by industry publication Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive, a publication covering the global supply chain.

New Jersey-based PLM TrustLink offers a cloud-based IoT management track and trace solution for the cold supply chain. The award recognized its sustainability study monitoring the frozen food mango supply chain, which analyzed data from harvest in Peru until delivery in the U.S. Midwest.

The data for Life Cycle Assessments, collected in 12 phases, identified opportunities to reduce the carbon footprint in distribution while reducing time and cost.

“We are honored to win this prestigious award for our study on the sustainability impact across

the supply chain,” Don Durm, vice president of customer solutions at PLM TrustLink, said in a news release. “Together with 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 six-month process, we collected temperature, location and time-to-freeze throughout this journey.”

PLM TrustLink captures data at item, case, batch, trailer or container level along the supply chain, helping to pinpoint inefficiencies and improve quality, food safety and inventory management while reducing waste.

Food Logistics’ annual awards recognize individual and corporate leaders in the food and beverage industry. The supply chain awards honor case study-type projects designed to automate, optimize and improve the supply chain, according to the publication’s website.
