VIENNA, Va., June 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- LaserShip, the premier last mile parcel carrier on the east coast, is proud to announce its inclusion in the 2013 Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100. The award highlights the industry's "100 Great Supply Chain Projects" that achieve success in keeping up with the demand-driven needs of consumers and exhibit excellence in the supply chain.
LaserShip was nominated by Newegg Inc., the leading electronics-focused e-retailer in the U.S., for helping the company achieve greater flexibility in its business operations through reduced transportation costs while enhancing the customer experience. Since adding LaserShip to its transportation carrier portfolio in Q4 of 2012, Newegg has improved its east coast customers' experience by reducing time in transit and accelerating speed of delivery.
"Newegg is already known for its fast delivery but we're always looking for new ways to get orders shipped out and into the hands of customers as quickly as possible," said Kunal Thakkar, Vice President of Operations at Newegg. "By partnering with a regional carrier like LaserShip, we're able to better serve our customers on the east coast. We'd like to congratulate LaserShip on their award win and thank Supply & Demand Chain Executive for recognizing our work together."
"LaserShip is honored to be selected as a member of the Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100," said Marketing Manager Jeb Emami. "We would like to thank Newegg for their nomination and are excited to partner with such a fast-growing enterprise as we continue to develop even faster delivery solutions for their customers."
The editorial staff at Supply & Demand Chain Executive received more than 200 online submissions for this year's "SDCE 100", collecting information on supply chain transformation project objectives, scope, and results. Winners were selected based on such factors as ambitiousness of the project, creative application of technologies / solutions / services used, extent of the business results / impact, and clarity of submission.
"Our goal with this year's '100' is to put the spotlight on successful and innovative transformation projects that deliver bottom-line value to small, medium and large enterprises across the different functions that comprise the supply chain," said Barry Hochfelder, Editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. "The projects featured in the '100' article can serve as a roadmap for supply chain executives looking for new opportunities to drive improvement in their own operations."
