Cadec Named to 2013 Supply & Demand Chain Executive Magazine 100 List of "Great Supply Chain Projects"

Cadec Recognized for Helping Ahold USA Increase Efficiency and Reduce Costs

MANCHESTER, NH--(Marketwired - May 20, 2013) - Cadec Global, which helps companies stay connected to their fleets, announced today it was recognized in Supply & Demand Chain Executive Magazine's 12th annual listing of the Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100, highlighting "100 Great Supply Chain Projects." Winners will be profiled in the June 2013 issue of the magazine. Cadec was selected based on its work with Ahold USA, modernizing Ahold's fleet management ecosystem.

The 2013 Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100 are supply chain solution and service providers that are helping their customers and clients achieve supply-chain excellence. They have produced measurable gains in ROI through cost-cutting, and increased efficiency, whether in warehouse, transportation, procurement sourcing or any other category in the end-to-end supply chain.

Using Cadec's PowerVue Enterprise fleet management system, Ahold USA can now accurately report on key KPIs such as on-time rates, travel time and mileage, and measure and manage fuel-wasting behaviors such as idling and sudden decels. The company has reduced driver hours at the stores by 10 percent, saving hundreds of man-hours per week, and shortened turn times at the yard, further reducing wasted driver hours and vehicle idling.

"One of the best things about Cadec's PowerVue fleet management solution is its ability to integrate seamlessly with our Transportation Management Software, so we now have all of this critical information about vehicle and driver location, arrival and departure times, and available hours communicated electronically in real-time," says Tracie Doyle, Ahold's Manager of Systems and Process reports. "PowerVue has unquestionably improved our efficiency and allowed us to maintain our customer service agreements, while reducing driver hours and cutting costs."

"We are proud to once again make the Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100, and be included in an established list of supply chain leaders for the work we are doing with companies such as Ahold USA," said Pete Allen, CEO of Cadec. "Cadec helps companies such as Ahold extend the supply chain right to the delivery dock to increase efficiency, productivity and order accuracy, while reducing costs. By providing real-time access to all delivery-related information, Cadec is helping to improve supply-chain management, and we will continue to evolve and improve our solutions to meet the demanding delivery needs of today's fleets.
