Food Logistics Names DAT Freight & Analytics 2022 Top Software & Technology Provider

DAT iQ and DAT One product lines honored as top technology products for food logistics and transportation professionals 

Denver, Colo., Dec. 13, 2022 — Food Logistics, the only publication dedicated to the movement of products through the global cold food supply chain, today honored DAT Freight & Analytics with its 2022 Top Software & Technology Providers award. The award recognizes technology companies with products that are critical in creating safe, efficient and reliable food and beverage supply chains.

DAT was honored for its SaaS products and data analytics services which food logistics teams across the globe use to negotiate and manage capacity, create flexible routing guides, control costs, develop robust carrier portfolios and navigate volatility. The company has two main product lines:

DAT iQ provides comprehensive freight rates, capacity, and performance analytics based on actual transactions submitted by more than 1,000 companies, including the world’s largest temperature-controlled logistics providers. DAT iQ helps users forecast and negotiate transportation pricing; monitor demand for trucks geographically down to a three-digit ZIP code level; and evaluate the cost-benefit of procuring refrigerated trailers for storage, pooling and other uses.

DAT One, DAT’s load board network, is an essential resource for organizations that move unplanned or surplus temperature-controlled freight through the cold chain. DAT One delivers access to the deepest pool of refrigerated capacity, with an average of more than 75,000 reefer trucks available each week in 2022.

“We’re honored to be recognized for this critical aspect of the supply chain, which keeps food on the shelves during times of crisis,” said Claude Pumilia, DAT President and CEO. “Food and beverage is a large portion of DAT’s user base, and customers have come to rely on DAT to help them benchmark, negotiate and manage the truckload capacity they need to optimize warehouse and dock space and move goods safely and efficiently.”

“The supply chain management software segment is projected to reach $18.04 billion this year, according to Statista,” says Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “These providers and their solutions are being implemented to address challenges in the cold food supply chain, whether they be port closures, driver safety or simply automating a process.”

Recipients of this year’s award are profiled in the November/December 2022 print issue of Food Logistics.
