INSIGHT Named as Top Logistics IT Provider in Food Industry

Powerful Supply Chain Simulation Model for Supply Chain Networks

MANASSAS, VA--(Marketwired - Dec 16, 2014) - INSIGHT, Inc., top international provider of planning solutions that power supply chain design for the world's foremost companies, announces being named to the annual FL100+ list of top logistics IT providers from Food Logistics magazine. This is INSIGHT's 11th consecutive appearance on this prestigious list. INSIGHT was chosen for its strategic supply chain planning solutions that power the supply chains of such food and beverage companies as Ocean Spray, Nestle, Kellogg's, and others, eliminating waste, streamlining operations, and maximizing profits.

"INSIGHT is the industry reference standard for supply chain planning for global businesses, including six of the top ten global food processors," said Dr. Jeff Karrenbauer, president and co-founder, INSIGHT, Inc. "Recently, INSIGHT announced SCOREKEEPER, which integrates optimization and simulation in the same supply chain design tool. This capability opens up a whole new world of exciting 'what if?' transportation policy option testing that was previously unthinkable. That, in turn, translates into the potential for very significant savings for food and beverage companies. This is the classic transportation improvement program analysis on maximum steroids."

"The impact of software and technology on the global food supply chain is truly profound," emphasizes Lara L. Sowinski, Editor-in-Chief at Food Logistics. "Software solution providers, equipment manufacturers and numerous technology innovations are supporting growth in our industry while concurrently lowering operating costs, improving productivity and enhancing visibility from farm to fork."

For more than a decade, the editors of Food Logistics have profiled software and technology providers that hold influential roles in the global food and beverage supply chain. Their products benefit the industry in multiple ways, from reducing food waste and extending shelf life, to facilitating safe and sanitary transportation of product while assuring regulatory compliance. Indeed, the robust activity in the software and technology sector relative to the global food and beverage supply chain prompted Food Logistics to expand the list this year and rename it as the FL100+. Companies who earned a spot on the FL100+ list are featured in the November/December 2014 issue of Food Logistics, as well as online at
