Outsourcing its transportation and logistics function is allowing snack manufacturer Lenny & Larry's to better manage growth and focus on its core competency: making cookies.
By Victoria Kickham
Snack manufacturer Lenny & Larry's faced a classic "good news, bad news" scenario just a few years ago. The good news was that demand was skyrocketing among the health and wellness set for its flagship protein-packed cookie, opening new markets for the product nationwide. The bad news was that the Southern California-based company was crumbling under the weight of transportation and logistics challenges as it worked to get cookie orders out the door faster than ever before.
That's when leaders at Lenny & Larry's turned to third-party logistics service provider (3PL) BlueGrace Logistics, which now manages all of the manufacturer's transportation planning and execution, allowing Lenny & Larry's to focus on product development and expansionall while reducing costs and enhancing on-time performance rates.
"BlueGrace [has] allowed Lenny & Larry's to focus on making the best protein cookies and improving internal operations while providing a consistent and stable platform for managing all outbound logistics," says Andrew Klucznik, sales and operations planning director for Lenny & Larry's. "[It has] also very effectively reduced logistics costs and pushed on-time performance to world-class levels."
One measure of success: Lenny & Larry's is now a nationwide distributor to Target, having been considered an "at-risk vendor" by the retail giant just a few years ago.
THE PROBLEM: LOW VISIBILITY, OUTDATED SYSTEMS
Bodybuilder and former American Gladiator competitor Benny "Cyclone" Turner founded Lenny & Larry's in 1993 with the goal of introducing a tasty, healthy protein-based snack to the health and wellness market. Over the next several years, the snack maker experienced what company leaders describe as "explosive growth" that left it bursting at the seams in 2013. During that period, Lenny & Larry's went from handling just a few shipments a day to local West Coast markets, to coordinating upward of 20 shipments a day for delivery nationwide.
Company leaders quickly realized that their distribution infrastructure wasn't up to snuff and that handling logistics processes manually was too much of a burden for the small but fast-growing business. The firm's on-time and must-arrive-by-date (MABD) performance rates were low, keeping it from meeting the stringent demands of many major retailers. Managing its logistics challenges was distracting the company from its main focus: making cookies.
THE SOLUTION: NEW SOFTWARE AND A PROCESS OVERHAUL
Riverview, Fla.-based BlueGrace entered the picture around 2016, first implementing its standalone transportation management platform, BlueShip, which provided Lenny & Larry's employees with a more streamlined system for booking shipments. The partnership grew from there, as BlueGrace uncovered deeper problems that were keeping the manufacturer from meeting some of its production and delivery goals. As BlueGrace Regional Vice President Christopher Kupillas explains, Lenny & Larry's needed to get a better handle on the data in its IT (information technology) system as a way to provide a fuller picture and more forward-looking view of orders and delivery requirements. That is to say, the firm needed to do more than just automate the shipping process in order to keep up with its growth.
"A lot of the things they did as a smaller business, moving two to three shipments a day, just wouldn't work anymore," Kupillas says. "When you start moving 20, 30, 40 shipments a day, you have to do some things to adjust to that."
BlueGrace took on a larger role by automating its client's entire logistics function. The 3PL started by eliminating cumbersome paperwork and introducing best practices and continuous-improvement processes for transportation and logistics. Its team of logistics experts drilled down to the on-time performance rates of specific customer locations and compared them with carrier-performance ratings to create an optimal carrier mix. They then developed new ship-date logic that matched the Lenny & Larry's production schedule, helping the firm reach on-time rates of more than 95 percent with big-box retailers and grocersan impressive jump from rates that hovered around 50 percent prior to working with BlueGrace, leaders from both companies say.
"Their support immediately alleviated the workload on our warehouse team, who could now focus on improving the order-fulfillment processes, accuracy of orders, and fill rates," Klucznik explains. "Aside from small parcels, which are still booked internally, BlueGrace manages the booking of all outbound transportation for our two distribution centersone on the West Coast and one on the East Coast. Once a week, we meet with BlueGrace to review the on-time performance to our customers as well as the cost performance of our distribution network."
THE OUTLOOK: MORE GROWTH AHEAD
Lenny & Larry's ships about a half-million pounds of product every week to more than 100 retailers and is more focused on growth than ever before, thanks to its new logistics partnership. Klucznik says BlueGrace acts as an extension of Lenny & Larry's, and that the two partners are working together to grow the business. Kupillas agrees, and says the opening of the company's East Coast distribution center in late 2018 perfectly illustrates the point.
BlueGrace was instrumental in the decision to open the East Coast facility, thanks to a cost-analysis study that grew out of its routine analysis of its client's data. More than a year ago, BlueGrace's logistics experts saw that the manufacturer was planning a new-product launch that would affect the weight, class, and mileage of its shipmentsultimately increasing shipping costsKupillas explains. That led the BlueGrace team to run some numbers to see whether adding an East Coast facility would mitigate the cost increases that were coming down the pike. Kupillas says the team found that a new facility would dramatically reduce costs for Lenny & Larry's on a cost-per-cookie basis; more importantly, it would help get the product to the customer faster, improving on-time delivery rates.
"Lenny & Larry's is a very future-focused company that is always looking on the horizon and focused on continuous improvement," he says, emphasizing the value to BlueGrace of knowing ahead of time how the new-product launch would affect shipping and logistics. Essentially, it allowed the two companies to develop a longer-term strategy for the snack maker's growth.
"If you can have those strategic conversations from a high level, as well as conversations at the tactical level ... it's the best possible scenario," Kupillas adds.

The following information has been upload by the submitting company and has not been edited or checked for accuracy. If you have any queries about the following products or services, please contact the company itself.
Software & Systems September 16, 2019
HOUSTON, Sept. 16, 2019During its 2019 in.sight user conference + expo, Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced today new modules and enhancements for its industry-leading TMW.Suite, TruckMate and Innovative IES Transportation Management System (TMS) solutions, designed to create efficiencies and streamline operations for carriers, brokers and third-party logistics (3PL) providers.
"Trimble's focus is to continue building on our dynamic TMS solutions to provide additional value to customers," said James Langley, senior vice president of Trimble's Transportation Sector. "These enhancements and upgrades will allow customers to do even more with their data, including maximizing resource utilization, retaining drivers and creating efficiencies."
Enhancements that span multiple TMS solutions include:
Reveal with Power BI: Trimble's transportation-specific business analytics platform is now powered by a Microsoft Power BI front end. The Power BI front end provides increased flexibility as well as powerful data visualization and reporting, giving users increased capabilities to take advantage of Trimble's database optimization and transportation focused extract-transform-load (ETL) capabilities for data warehousing. Reveal's dimensional data model is virtually plug-and-play with other major business intelligence applications as well. Reveal is available for all Trimble TMS products and TMT SQL products.
D2Link 3.0: Trimble's D2Link mobile data solution, which combines the reliability of a fixed in-cab platform with the flexibility and convenience of a smartphone has been enhanced to offer mobile imaging and is now available for both Android and iOS devices. D2Link benefits include increased communication with drivers, signature capture and new forms and workflows. In addition to being available for use with all Trimble TMS solutions, D2Link is also available for use with Trimble Oil & Gas Services solutions.
Driver Analytics and Retention: A predictive analytics module that utilizes TMS and telematics data to identify a fleet's drivers who are most likely to voluntarily leave the company within the next 28 days, and provides customized recommended actions to help carriers proactively work to retain those drivers. This capability is available for use with Innovative IES, TMW.Suite and TruckMate.
Trimble also debuted several product-specific enhancements uniquely available for TMW.Suite, TruckMate or Innovative IES.
New capabilities for TMW.Suite users include:
Risk Management: A Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)-based tool that combines key TMS and telematics risk and safety data such as incidents, accidents, claims, violations, speeding citations and other elements to provide a holistic view of a fleet's risk and safety factors. With this tool, TMW.Suite customers can use this data to make more informed and actionable safety decisions, as well as form long-term driver coaching and education plans.
Enhancements to the TruckMate platform include:
Container IQ: A new cloud module that allows carriers to track containers in near-real time within TruckMate. Container IQ gives intermodal carriers integrated visibility to location and status of container availability when transported by railroad. Container IQ also provides enhanced load security and improved customer service through accurate reporting and tracking of containers.
EDI Compare: As companies receive an increasing number of updates from shippers, many are seeing an increase in the amount of manual administrative work needed to compare orders. An Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) add-on module allows customers to compare EDI tendered loads and automate changes within set thresholds such as time or quantity - streamlining operations and removing tedious manual work for staff.
Trimble Freight Link: A new module that allows carriers to accurately provide dispatch information to third parties, such as Owner-Operators or 3PLs, while receiving updated information including GPS and load update information from those organizations. The module enables carriers to maintain accurate records for customer service, while also allowing third parties to self manage their loads, which enables the separation of the carrier from third-party carriers occasionally required for legal purposes.
Enhancements to modules within the Innovative IES platform include:
Lane Commitment Module: A cloud-based, multi-tenant solution that allows companies to specify contract commitments and lane preferences. Preferences are used to automatically accept or reject load tenders limiting manual intervention in managing inbound loads. The solution also presents lane commitment data to TMS users, allowing them to monitor contract commitments as orders are created.
Innovative Brokerage: Newly consolidated brokerage user-interface screens allow for easy access and management of brokered loads and provide users with a streamlined ability to sort, filter and search, while also adding drag and drop functionality to the brokerage process in Innovative. Users can also track the progress of loads through stages and harness built-in printing of negotiation letters to improve the customer experience.
Agricultural Zone Billing: A solution that provides accurate billing and carrier payment for logistics operations that utilize a zone-based approach to billing when hauling freight, such as milk plants working with a co-op. While the origins of this product are in agriculture, this module will also work in a variety of zone-based billing circumstances.
The debut of these TMS enhancements were made at Trimble's 2019 in.sight user conference + expo, which is taking place from Sept. 15-18 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston. The three-day event features the leading companies from the transportation and logistics industries who will showcase the latest technologies.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Neuronavigation Systems Market Insights Analysis 2018-2026 – Rapid News Network
Posted: at 4:19 pm
A transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) neuronavigation system is a type of non-invasive magnetic brain stimulation procedure that uses magnetic fields to stimulate the nerve cells of the brain and improve the symptoms of depression. During the process, an electromagnetic coil is placed on the forehead or scalp. It delivers a magnetic pulse, which aids in the treatment of mood disorders and depression. This process activates the part of the brain that has stopped working due to depression. It is a non-invasive and painless procedure. However, it has some common side effects such as headache, scalp discomfort on the site of coil placement and stimulation, spasms, twitching of facial muscles, tingling, and lightheadedness.
The global transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) neuronavigation systems market is primarily driven by an increase in the incidence of neurological disorders and depression, rise in the geriatric population, and increase in the number of neurosurgeries performed.

Shippers, transportation management solution (TMS)providers, and managed transportation providers (MTP) have now been givenaccess to Convoys automated real-time pricingand capacity for both live and drop-and-hook loads through a suite ofapplication programming interfaces (API) and developer tools called Convoy Now.
Theres been huge demand for this functionality from bothour shippers and from partners like BluJay, DHL and numerous others, explainedRene Miller, Convoy Now product manager. As Convoy has grown and become a coreprovider for many of our shippers, they have asked what unique capabilities wecan bring to their business to improve their logistics efficiency. Third-partylogistics providers (3PLs) and TMS vendors are also receiving these requestsfrom their customers. Numerous shippers are asking for this functionality, andtheyre asking for it in a variety of ways, so we developed Convoy Now.
Convoy offers immediate integrations with BluJay, MercuryGateand One Network. More TMS providers will be added in the future. Convoy Now offersintegration through any solution with its developer tools. Miller toldFreightWaves the company is providing the necessary tools, APIs, resources andexamples and support to help shippers create their integration if they dontuse a TMS provider with which Convoy has an existing relationship.
Shippers also turn to MTPs to help reduce costs and movefreight more efficiently. Integrating Convoys real-time rate API adds adynamic layer of supply within the routing guide to provide the MTP and theircustomers greater control over costs and an up-to-the-minute view of marketconditions, the company explained. The new program also gives shippers accessto the same information Convoy has when it comes to real-time pricing availablein Convoy Go, which is the nationwide drop-and-hookprogram.
Were only making this available through the Convoy Nowintegrations at this point, Miller said. Real-time pricing for drop-and-hookhas historically been a very challenging problem for the industry, so werevery excited to make this available to our customers as it will save time andmoney, while facilities operate more efficiently.
Convoy Go, first launched in 2017 and expanded nationwideearlier this year, offers drop-and-hook freight through Convoys UniversalTrailer Pool of leased trailer assets. Tito Hubert, product lead for Convoy Go,told FreightWaves in April that the average wait time for truckers using ConvoyGo is less than an hour, helping drivers get in and out of facilities quicker,which leads to more time on the road. The addition of automated, real-timepricing to this program under the Convoy Now platform will only enhance thesebenefits, the company believes.
Johann Van Der Westhuizen, vice president of strategicbusiness development at One Network, said the ability for its customers to getreal-time pricing from Convoy directly in their TMS has streamlined the processfor customers to find and book loads at affordable prices.
Shippers using One Network to manage their freight arelooking to simplify their complex supply chains, so we see great value in theefficiencies that Convoy offers our customers, he said.
Ultimately, the addition of Convoy Now is about easing painpoints for shippers, Miller said.
Convoy currently supports integrations for shippers to useour automatic real-time pricing to secure coverage for shipments in the toolsthey use today (e.g., TMS systems), he said. These are the use cases whereshippers gain the most value from by using our integration. As shippers andpartners come up with new ideas on how to use the APIs or integrations, wereopen to collaborating to create new innovative programs to solve the problemstheyre tackling.

Specialized haul drivers at TMS Delivery Inc. given special acknowledgment for National Truck Driver Week – Tyler Morning Telegraph
Posted: at 4:19 pm
A career in truck driving has many great benefits the freedom and exploration of life on the road, good pay and job security, but it also has its downfalls such as stressful highway driving with disrespectful motorists, which is why Tyler-based TMS Delivery Inc. is celebrating their drivers during National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, Sept. 8-14.
Tarisa Klaus, 50, general manager at TMS Delivery Inc., has worked with the truckload carrier company for 15 years. It was founded by Darrell Nunn in 1983.
TMS Delivery Inc. is a small company that specializes in expedited services, meaning they deal regularly with rush orders, items that must be delivered by a particular time and items that require special handling and care.
Their job is stressful and no one really appreciates how stressful it is to be a truck driver, Klaus said. Put yourself in that truck, eight feet off the ground, driving down the road with people who got their drivers license online. Theyre trying to motorboat around you. Youre 80,000 pounds, theyre three thousand pounds. You cant shut down that truck on a dime. You have to bring it to a stop. Then motorists cut them off, flip them off, disrespect them, make their lives on the highway.
In the past five years, companies have seen a shortage in truck drivers. Ms. Klaus said that good drivers will always be in demand, but they can be hard to find. She said many applicants dont have the right modality in their work ethic. They dont want to be team players.
In East Texas, the demand for truck drivers fluctuates with the demand for oil field workers. When the oil fields are full of workers, drivers are sparse.
Dale Speer, 42, of Coffee City, is considered a team leader at TMS and a model employee for all new hires. Speer drives a 2007 Peterbilt 379 extended hood 4 axle, a heavy-haul truck. He often carries specialized or oversized loads that require special attention on the road.
Quality of service especially in oversized and specialized is super critical because in that realm of trucking its high liability, expensive loads both for the shipper and the receiver, Klaus said. It takes a cool head and an experienced mind to handle that kind of freight.
Speer has 21 years of experience as a truck driver and has been employed with TMS for eight years.
Hes conscientious he cares about the other drivers and he cares about the motoring public, Klaus said. I have him train every driver that comes through the door. Hes the best at cargo securement. Hes told me, I tie that load down as if my little girl is riding next to it; nothing moves.
Klaus said that Speer sets the tone for the rest of the team and that tone translates to performance on the road.
Klaus believes that taking care of each other is a vital aspect to a successful company.
People have value, she said. The turnover rate in so many corporations is growing and growing because they dont value their people. Some managers look at their people like they are hamburger meat you grind them then go. How do you grow that way? How do you build something that way?
If you want to be the best at your industry you have to set that tone by hiring quality drivers like Speer.
These guys go through a lot every day so you can have the things you see in your world. If you bought it, a truck driver brought it, she said.
On Saturday the drivers will be recognized with a special celebration at the company. Ms. Klaus herself will sit in a dunking booth waiting to be dunked by her team. The day will also include a barbecue, competitions and fun games in an effort to show appreciation for the companys drivers.

For this years Tokyo Motor Show, Mitsubishi will present a small plug-in hybrid SUV concept, which it says pulls together the companys electrification and all-wheel drive control expertise and technologies.
Unsurprisingly, theres isnt a lot to go on here, with Mitsubishi adding that the show car will have a downsized PHEV drivetrain, as well as an electric 4WD system that allows it to deliver unparalleled driving pleasure and confidence over all terrain in light and wind.
To go along with the announcement, theres also a teaser image of the concepts rear quarter design, revealing a boxy shape with a split roof styling. We also get to see carbon-fibre trim on each of the humps, along with four circular elements that could be associated with the cars cooling system.
Nestled between these items is a window that provides a glimpse of what is likely an aspect of the concepts powertrain. Well only know more about the unnamed vehicle when it is presented in Tokyo later in October.

This morning the latest release of Pokemon GO included imagery of Shiny Trapinch and crew. This Pokemon is not strictly new it was first released in the Hoenn region, Generation 3, back with Pokemon Ruby and Pokemon Sapphire. This Pokemon will appear in a Trapinch Community Day as well, inside October with additional bonuses. Also note: Legendary Raid Hour was cancelled for today!
The Trapinch family appeared with Shiny Trapinch, Shiny Vibrava, and Shiny Flygon this morning. Their first appearance was in the games APK, the files for the game. They are not necessarily LIVE in the wild just yet well know soon enough! The update in which this family of Shiny Trapinch first appeared also showed a whole bunch of new Gen 5 Unova Pokemon in the wild right this minute.
UPDATE: Legendary Raid Hour with Mewtwo was cancelled this afternoon. Well know more from Niantic soon!
These Shiny Trapinch Family Pokemon are very different colors than their original forms. The Shiny Trapinch is aqua/green instead of peach/orange. The Shiny Vibrava has orange/peach wings and eyes instead of green. The Shiny Flygon remains green, but inclues blue and yellow accents instead of darker green and red.
Users will find Shiny Trapinch in the near future the very best chance anyone will have at finding this super rare version of the Pokemon is on Trapinch Community Day. Thatll also be known as the October 2019 Community Day for Pokemon GO, featuring Trapinch. This event will take place on October 12, 2019, from 11AM until 2PM, local time.
Community Day includes 3x catch XP (experience points) as well as 3-hour lures thatll last the duration of the event. Trapinch will appear in greater numbers than usual on Community Day and will have the potential to get an exclusive move. This move will be exclusive to this day, and will not be able to be taught to any other Trapinch any other day.
Also note, per Niantic, Fast TMs and Charged TMs will not grant exclusive moves during Community Day. To learn the exclusive move, you must catch or evolve the featured Pokmon during Community Day hours.
