Matt Angell and Matt Wagner have a combined 30 years of experience in designing and implementing transportation management solutions, and have played a key role in the exponential growth at JLS.
The Food Logistics Champions: Rock Stars of the Supply Chain recognizes influential individuals in the 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.
'In order to operate and be profitable in an OTIF environment, it's very important for companies to align themselves with a trusted, strategic and experienced supply chain partner with a relentless focus on continuous improvement," said Matt Angell. With a persistent focus on continuing to improve the client experience, Angell has organized the 24/7/365 JLS Routing Center into a 'control tower', effectively managing the tactical operations of his clients' daily supply chain needs.

In order for any supply chain solution to be successful you need to thoroughly understand the procure-to-cash process within an organization. By designing the right supply chain strategy, an organization can drive competitive advantage to drive growth and profitability," said Wagner.
