FRISCO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dairy.com today announced that it has been named to the tenth annual FL100 list, which identifies software and technology providers whose products and services play a significant role in the food supply chain. This is the third year in a row that Dairy.com—a leader in web-based dairy supply chain solutions and market intelligence—has been named to the list.
This year’s recognition was based on Dairy.com’s Farm-to-Plant (F2P) solution that helps dairy handlers control costs associated with transporting milk from farm to plant. Dairy freight procurement is complex, requiring milk handlers to balance transportation costs against the need to retain both producers and haulers.
“Sometimes procurement is less about competitive bidding and more about creating equitable pay programs, which is why we developed our Farm-to-Plant solution,” said Hill Pratt, Senior Vice President of Business Development. “The Farm-to-Plant process draws from vast amounts of information—such as geographic data, equipment cost, and wage rates—to determine the precise cost of picking up each pound of milk at each farm. Our model helps us determine hauler pay with consistency, fairness, and accuracy.”
As part of its service, Dairy.com also helps customers implement new hauler pay programs. This is done, in part, by engaging haulers and incorporating their insights into hauling costs.
F2P haul cost programs developed and implemented by Dairy.com’s transportation professionals have been well-received by the dairy industry. Multiple projects in the Midwest and Northeast have generated substantial improvements to pay programs.
Dairy.com helps the dairy industry manage, trade, and move bulk dairy commodities through its Internet-based business solutions and services. As the industry’s premier Software as a Service (SaaS) provider, Dairy.com delivers bulk commodity trading, raw milk management, and transportation solutions for cooperatives, processors, manufacturers and haulers. The industry also looks to Dairy.com for market intelligence through publications, consulting, risk management, and more. Dairy.com has delivered cost-effective supply chain solutions and services to the dairy industry since 2000, and customers represent a majority of annual U.S. dairy sales.
