ORLANDO, FL – iGPS Logistics, the nation’s leading provider of innovative supply chain solutions featuring its lightweight, recyclable shipping pallets, has been named a recipient of the 2023 Top Software and Tech Award by Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive.
This industry honor spotlights top software and technology solutions in the supply chain space. iGPS won in the Supply Chain Visibility category, in recognition of the company’s innovative suite of RFID tools under its proprietary iSUM3 (Intelligent Stock Use and Movements) software platform. iGPS plastic pallets containing integrated RFID technology allow customers to associate crucial product information with the uniquely identified pallet upon which the product is transported.
The iSUM3 software contains a virtual blueprint of all the serialized iGPS pallets a facility holds. Handheld RFID scanners allow users to access the software’s dual functionality of generally locating a specific pallet or locating an iGPS pallet when mixed in with non-iGPS plastic pallets. Facility managers can also count and inventory a load of pallets in seconds using the tool, providing not only added visibility but also unparalleled productivity.
iGPS Logistics has won various awards for innovation and sustainability in recent years, and numerous iGPS colleagues have been recognized as supply chain industry leaders.
“We are always grateful to the judges and editors at Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive for this type of industry recognition,” said Jeff Pepperworth, President and CEO of iGPS. “We’re hyper-focused on using the latest innovations to bring enhanced visibility and efficiency to the always-moving nationwide supply chain.”
