March 15, 2020

HICKORY, NC (March 15, 2020) – Transportation Insight, a leader in Enterprise Logistics solutions and services, announces Senior Vice President Information Technology Jim Taylor was named a Provider Pro to Know by Supply & Demand Chain Executive. Provider Pros to Know are recognized among software firms and service providers, consultancies or academia for their ability to help supply chain clients or the supply chain community prepare to meet the challenges of today’s business climate. Taylor is a visionary in innovative technology applications with experience developing, implementing and integrating transformative solutions resulting in increased shareholder value.

“Today companies need to make decisions more quickly and more intelligently, yet there is so much information available that they find it hard to even get started. To make sense of all this data and understand what is happening within their supply chain, organizations need to dive deep and dive fast into validated, relevant information,” Taylor says. “The tools Transportation Insight provides help clients leverage the right data to transform their supply chains.”

Taylor is the visionary behind Transportation Insight’s Insight Fusion©, an interactive business intelligence portal that helps clients make timely and data-driven business decisions. Insight Fusion empowers businesses to improve transportation decisions across all modes, track business trends and KPIs, understand the impact of freight cost/service on working capital and identify performance improvement opportunities. This enables shippers to enhance customers’ experiences, expand their power of final delivery choice and accelerate their competitive speed to market. 

“The supply chain profession is ever-changing, with transformative technologies and evolutionary best practices driving greater efficiencies and innovations for companies,” says John R. Yuva, editor-in-chief for Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “At the heart of it all are supply chain professionals. The 2020 Pros to Know recipients are setting the bar for supply chain excellence.”   

Transportation Insight’s unified technology environment assimilates detailed and summary-level reporting, data visualization, interactive mapping and transportation document storage into a holistic network view. This helps clients improve day-to-day shipment execution based on shipping characteristics such as destination, delivery date, weight, dimensions and freight class.
