“We’re very honored by this designation,” said Michael Nervick, CEO and Founder of AFN. “We pride ourselves on continuously challenging the status quo to help customers improve their bottom line and this award recognizes our effort”.
AFN uses sophisticated analytics to help manufacturers and retailers get products on store shelves in the quickest, safest, greenest and most cost-effective ways possible. The company works with 8 of the largest 10 retailers in the U.S. “Logistics and supply chain strategies are less about getting a product from point A to point B and more about eliminating unnecessary steps,” added Nervick. “This award is based on our work with a leading manufacturer who outsourced transportation to AFN and, as a result, reduced costs and increased customer satisfaction.” Download the case study here: http://www.loadafn.com/afn-news-and-research/afn-news/learn-how-afn-helped-our-client-save-10-on-transportation-costs/
