PITTSBURGH, PA – December 2021 – Food Logistics, the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global cold food supply chain, has named Elite Transit Solutions to its 2021 Top Software & Technology Providers award, which honors software and technology providers that ensure a safe, efficient, and reliable global cold food and beverage supply chain.
“During a time of unprecedented levels of unpredictability, we’ve been able to successfully pivot through 2021 without disruptions because we’ve continuously evolved our technology tools and set high standards for carriers,” said Michael Johnson, CEO of Elite Transit Solutions. “Even before the pandemic, we’ve been making investments to advance our software, ensuring that our partners are covered, especially during volatile times.”
“Software developments and emerging technologies are what make the world go ‘round. They’re what make supply chains move, even when the world stops. They’re what keeps people, products and plants safe. They provide traceability, visibility, efficiency and credibility. And, the winners from this year’s award prove that there are no limitations to what software and technology can do in the supply chain space,” says Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive.
Concurrent with ongoing advancements to its innovative technology, in 2021, ELITE transitioned from a regional 3PL company to a national presence, opening offices across the country, including a major Sales hub in Chicago and offices in Charlotte and Phoenix. The company also expects to announce plans for additional western US locations during the next year. During the past 12 months, ELITE more than tripled its headcount from 60 employees in 2019 to approximately 200. It expects to hire more than 280 new employees nationally by 2022, with potentially hundreds of more new hires in the coming years.
