ORRVILLE, Ohio, Feb. 27, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Supply & Demand Chain Executive, the executive's user manual for successful supply and demand chain transformation, is pleased to announce that Matt Angell, Vice President of Logistics Operations and Matt Wagner, Vice President of Sales and Marketing of Jarrett Logistics Systems (JLS), were named to the 18th annual listing of the 2019 Pros to Know in the supply chain industry. Matt Angell and Matt Wagnerhave a combined 30 years of experience in designing and implementing transportation management solutions, and have played a key role in the exponential growth at JLS.
"There have been a number of Fortune 500 companies outwardly expressing concern in regard to a dip in their 2018 earnings reports, which they credit in part to rising transportation and logistics costs. That being said, this is an area of focus in organizations of all sizes. The need for a company to align its supply chain with the overall strategy of the company has never been greater. At Jarrett, we help increase visibility and communication across departments in order to help our clients gain more control over their supply chain," Matt Wagner stated.
"Clients need to navigate a competitive environment, monitor regulatory and tariff changes, and effectively utilize capital. Supply chain decisions made this year will affect a clients' ability to be successful for many years in the future," said Matt Angell. Under Matt Angell's leadership, JLS works with clients to provide them with real time shipment visibility and data to better manage their inventory and ultimately, to need less of it.
The Pros to Know Awards recognize supply chain executives, in manufacturing and non-manufacturing enterprises, that are leading initiatives to help prepare their companies' supply chains for the significant challenges of today's business climate. This year's list includes more than 200 individuals from software firms and service providers, consultancies or academia, who helped their supply chain clients or the supply chain community at large prepare to meet these challenges—and more than 40 Practitioner Pros, who do the same within their own companies.
