PORTLAND, Ore., —Supply & Demand Chain Executive, the only publication covering the entire global supply chain, today named Ken Adamo, DAT Chief of Analytics, to its list of “Pros to Know” for 2021.
The award recognizes outstanding executives whose accomplishments offer a roadmap for other leaders looking to leverage the supply chain for competitive advantage. This year’s list includes individuals and teams from software and service providers; consultancies; academia; transportation firms; and more, all who have helped supply chain professionals meet many of today’s—and tomorrow’s—challenges.
“While many companies have struggled to regain their footing as a result of COVID-19, this year’s Pros to Know winners stepped up to the plate to deliver innovative solutions and programs in a time of crisis and need,” says Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Supply & Demand Chain Executive and Food Logistics. “These winners collaborated, optimized, developed, educated and played a critical role in the survival and success of their company amid a global pandemic.”
As DAT’s Chief of Analytics, Ken Adamo is responsible for DAT iQ, the company’s data science team and the industry’s most valuable pricing database for shippers, third-party logistics firms, trucking operations and freight brokers.
DAT President and CEO Claude Pumilia said: “Under Ken’s leadership, DAT has helped customers make sense of freight conditions during the most volatile of markets. He spearheaded the research and back-testing of predictive models that resulted in our new Ratecast freight rate prediction model, which now predicts rates with nearly 95% accuracy for our 8-day forecast – even during the current market uncertainty. Ken is an essential resource for the both the DAT community and those in transportation supply chain. We’re delighted that Supply & Demand Chain Executive has recognized him as a Pro to Know.”
