A big congratulations to Vincent Rivait of BOA Logistics. Food Logistics, the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global food supply chain, has named Vince to its 2020 Food Logistics Champions: Rock Stars of the Supply Chain award.
The Food Logistics Champions: Rock Stars of the Supply Chain recognizes influential individuals in our industry whose achievements, hard work, and vision have shaped and attained milestones in safety, efficiency, productivity and innovation through the global food supply chain. From early pioneers and entrepreneurs to non-conformist thinkers and executive standouts, this award aims to honor these leaders and their contributions to our industry.
“The 2020 Food Logistics Champions: Rock Stars of the Supply Chain exhibits the true rock stars of the industry, those that go the extra mile, so to speak, to ensure their company’s supply chains are being operated in an efficient, safe and transparent manner,” says Marina Mayer, editor-in-chief of Food Logistics. “These professionals are a true example as to why today’s food and beverage supply chains are in position to curtail tomorrow’s consumers’ demands, and why today’s youth should consider the supply chain and logistics industry as a possible path of employment.”
Recipients of this year’s 2020 Food Logistics Champions: Rock Stars of the Supply Chain award will be profiled in the March 2020 issue of Food Logistics, as well as online at www.foodlogistics.com.
Los Angeles-based BOA Logistics offers domestic road transportation, rail, global air, and ocean freight services. BOA Logistics perishable consolidation program transports a wide variety of perishable commodities for major food brands. The majority of these shipments are refrigerated goods that must be kept between 33 and 38 degrees Fahrenheit for the entire shipment. Receivers will accept only a very small range of temperature fluctuation. That is why BOA must maintain the correct temperatures on its perishable shipments in order to avoid rejection.
Rivait implemented the Tive supply chain visibility platform across all perishable shipments giving BOA Logistics real-time visibility into temperature and location across all in-transit full truckloads (FTL) and less than truckloads (LTL). Using Tive’s real-time platform, BOA Logistics has access to shipment temperature and location data and the ability to set up custom alerts like ETA warnings, temperature deviations, geofences; and to analyze shipments across their LTL carriers to make sure they are meeting KPIs. BOA Logistics also uses the Tive API to integrate this data into the company’s transportation management system (TMS).
As a result, BOA Logistics can:
- Ensure reefer settings are correct,
- Provide real-time shipment locations,
- Determine if and when loads are stopped at a single site for too long,
- Verify time-on-site for delivery and justifying any detention charges,
- Pair weather data with Tive temp and GPS data to allow for quick decisions about whether to reroute or hold up a shipment.
