National wholesale food distributor will leverage TMS to scale for growth
Holland, MI – June 24, 2020 – BluJay Solutions, a leading provider of supply chain software and services, announces that National Food Group has deployed BluJay’s Transportation Management platform for improved execution and customer service.
National Food Group (NFG) has been partnering with foodservice professionals since 1990 to provide delicious, on-trend menu items, as well as reliable staples every kitchen needs. With BluJay’s Transportation Management, NFG intends to reduce freight spend and manual work, increase consolidation opportunities and visibility, better manage carrier performance, and use data intelligence to identify trends faster.
“National Food Group is excited to upgrade our transportation and logistics execution with BluJay’s platform,” says Heather Adam, VP of Operations at NFG. “The quality of the system interface is excellent and it’s easy to use. We look forward to improved execution with a focus on exception management. The TMS will provide the ability to scale logistics execution for future business growth. We’re also impressed with the experienced BluJay staff – they are very knowledgeable, professional, and took the time to ensure we understood how the system will help us achieve our goals.”
Previously utilizing an ERP for transportation and logistics execution, NFG will deploy BluJay’s modern TMS to gain purpose-built capabilities including planning, optimization, document management, routing guides, spot market, advanced reporting, and much more.
