OnTrac named one of Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100

Posted on Jun 11, 2013 2:11:00 PM

OnTrac is pleased to announce its spot in the 2013 Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100, which highlights the industry’s “100 Great Supply Chain Projects.”

OnTrac was nominated by Newegg Inc., the leading electronics-focused e-retailer in the United States, for its role in helping the company improve the customer experience by decreasing delivery times and generating savings.

Newegg added OnTrac to its transportation carrier portfolio in September, 2012 to help service its customers on the West Coast. As a result of using OnTrac, Newegg was able to reduce average transit days and get its products into the hands of customers faster.  

“Providing the best possible service to our customers is a top priority at Newegg,” said Kunal Thakkar, Vice President of Operations at Newegg. “That’s why we decided to introduce regional carriers like OnTrac to help bring more flexibility in our business operations while enhancing the customer experience. We’re thrilled that Supply & Demand Chain Executive has recognized our work together and we look forward to continuing to work closely with OnTrac.”

             Supply & Demand Chain Executive Top 100 OnTrac

For the past 11 years, the SDCE100 has spotlighted successful and innovative transformation projects that have enabled shippers to deliver bottom-line value to small, medium and large enterprises across the range of supply chain functions that industry professionals face today.

“We would like to thank Newegg for nominating us as one of the Supply and Demand Chain Executive’s Top 100,” Vice President of Marketing Laura Peterson said. “Our facilities and transport lanes are set up strategically throughout the 8 Western States to provide our customers a transit time advantage over their competitors. We are happy to be a part of Newegg’s continued success and to have played a part in supporting their business goals.”

The world of supply chain is ever-evolving, becoming more complex seemingly by the day. To keep up with the volatility and the demand-driven needs of customers, supply chain solution providers, consultants and other organizations must be flexible enough to react to change but also visionary enough to prepare for the future.

“Our goal with this year's ‘100’ is to put the spotlight on successful and innovative transformation projects that deliver bottom-line value to small, medium and large enterprises across the different functions that comprise the supply chain,” said Barry Hochfelder, Editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive, when the awards were announced. “The projects featured in the '100' article can serve as a roadmap for supply chain executives looking for new opportunities to drive improvement in their own operations.”

After receiving nomination forms, the Supply & Demand Chain Executive editorial staff identified applicants that best fit the stated criteria for the “100”. Final recipients are featured with more detail in the June 2013 print issue of Supply & Demand Chain Executive, as well as online at sdcexec.com.
