HICKORY, NC (March 15, 2020) – Transportation Insight, a leader in Enterprise Logistics solutions and services, announces Vice President of Supply Chain Analytics John Richardson 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. Richardson leads Transportation Insight’s Supply Chain Analytics group that partners with shippers to design and implement innovative supply chain solutions by merging deep data analysis with a continuous improvement mindset.

“By applying advanced analysis techniques, the Supply Chain Analytics group at Transportation Insight helps top companies improve their supply chain efficiencies while lowering costs,” Richardson says. “Once a company has designed the optimal supply chain network, they can apply Lean continuous improvement methodologies to further improve productivity, increase business performance and enhance customer service.”
