Choice Logistics Technology Leader Wins Supply Chain Award

Choice Logistics, Inc., the leading provider of critical service parts logistics, announced today that Robert Bacchi, Senior Vice President of Information Services, was named a Supply & Demand Chain Executive Provider “Pro to Know.” Bacchi was nominated for spearheading initiatives in transportation management, business intelligence, and cloud computing that enable technology companies to reduce costs in the supply chain while improving the reach and reliability of aftermarket service offerings.

“I’ve been able to build a high-performance technology team that sees business problems from the client perspective,” said Bacchi. “Through analytics and real-time interfaces with parcel carriers and other resources, we are maximizing visibility into the supply chain and providing business intelligence based on facts, not anecdotal evidence.”

Under Robert’s leadership, Choice Logistics has increased the flexibility, resilience, and value of its solutions by capitalizing on cloud computing. His commitment to building an “always-on” business was tested during Superstorm Sandy, which flooded downtown Manhattan. Even though Choice Logistics was forced to vacate its corporate offices, its Global Logistics Center and IT applications remained fully functional. Many clients, including some of the world’s largest technology manufacturers, credited Choice Logistics for the praise they received from their own customers for service parts delivery in the aftermath of the storm.
