Companies selected for the 2012 “Cool Vendors” in Supply Chain Management report are innovative and impactful.
Alameda, CA - April 10, 2012 – PINC Solutions, the leading provider of advanced yard management systems (YMS) today announced that the company has been included in the list of "Cool Vendors" in the Supply Chain Management report by Gartner, Inc.
According to the March 26, 2012 report, this year’s “Cool Vendors” prove once again that, although aspects of the SCM technology market are mature, innovation continues as companies look for capabilities that make them more competitive or improve their operating metrics.
Traditionally, yard management has been looked at as a means to manage the life-cycle of a trailer and its shipment within a given facility. PINC’s Advanced-YMS extends this view to the supply chain network, and enables trading partners to manage the life-cycle of a shipment and a trailer across multiple facilities and across corporate boundaries. By sharing real-time, accurate, and actionable shipment and trailer status information, PINC’s customers reduce the idle time that trailers (loaded or empty) and drivers spend inside their facilities. As a result, they significantly reduce their transportation, operations, and inventory carrying costs.
“Recognition comes with hard work and strong customer success stories,” said Ken Colby, CEO of PINC Solutions. “We believe our inclusion in the Cool Vendor report by Gartner affirms our mission to enable enterprises to reduce operational costs, increase supply chain efficiencies, and gain competitiveadvantage.”

Leading Business Magazine for the Food and Grocery Industry Segments Releases Annual Listing of Top Software and Technology Providers.
Alameda, CA — January 17, 2012 — Food Logistics, the only publication dedicated exclusively to the grocery and foodservice distribution supply chain, last month announced the eighth-annual listing of the FL100. Food Logistics Magazine selected PINC Solutions as a top 100 software and technology provider for the fourth consecutive year.
Each year, the editors of Food Logistics recognize 100 software and technology providers that better enable grocery and foodservice distributors and manufacturers to realize their business goals. In 2011, the publication focused on solution providers that are helping their customers differentiate themselves in the marketplace, while simultaneously facilitating improved safety and traceability throughout the supply chain.
“With the passage of the FDA’s landmark Food Safety and Modernization Act, the entire food and beverage sector is under increased pressure to improve safety and traceability throughout the supply chain. In addition, the ongoing globalization of food supply chains demands closer collaboration with suppliers and enhanced visibility from farm to fork,” notes Lara L. Sowinski, editor-in-chief at Food Logistics. “Technology is a powerful tool that can ensure compliance, mitigate risk, and serve as a market differentiator in today’s highly competitive environment.”
“We would like to thank our customers for this recognition,” commented Ken Colby, PINC Solutions’ CEO. “Food safety and security has been a recurring agenda item for government regulators trying to build greater transparency and accountability into an increasingly global supply chain. As companies source and transport food products from farther afield the potential for contamination, security breaches, and shrinkage increases. As a consequence, our customers, such as Kraft Foods and Nestle, are becoming much more vigilant about how they track and monitor assets – especially in the yards.“

RFID Journal magazine, the world's leading source of RFID news and insights, recently published an article about how a leading third-party logistics company, DSC Logistics, is reducing costs and better collaborating with trading partners through the use of an advanced yard management solution. If you'd like to read the entire article please click here.
"DSC Logistics uses RFID readers on its yard truck, and at its gate, to monitor where each trailer is located, and then shares that data with customers and freight carriers.
At the California location, O'Reilly says, the PINC system has enabled the company to achieve savings by increasing the yard-goat drivers' productivity, reducing average travel distance within the yard, streamlining communication between drivers and the shipping office, and eliminating the manual yard-check process. Another benefit, he adds, is the ability to share data with freight carriers and customers, which need simply log into the DSC Logistics' PINC Web site, enter a password, access a dashboard displaying each trailer's status (such as received, unloaded or shipped) and view its location as an icon on a yard map. The system can send notifications to customers, either via an update on their dashboard as they sign in, or via an e-mail indicating when a specific action has occurred, such as a change in a trailer's load status. In addition, operators can utilize the system to resolve detention claims from their carriers—in the event that a shipment is late, for example—since the data indicates the trailer's exact location, when it was at that site and for how long.
Based on the solution's success to date, O'Reilly says, DSC Logistics is currently preparing to deploy the technology at two other sites—one in Pennsylvania and one in Virginia—during the first quarter of this year. "
