UNION CITY, Calif., Feb. 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- PINC, the number-one provider of yard management, finished vehicle logistics, and inventory robotics solutions to the world's leading brands, announces today that the company's CEO, Matt Yearling, has been selected by Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine, the executive's user manual for successful supply and demand chain transformation, as 2018 Pro to Know in the supply chain industry.
The Pros to Know Awards recognize supply chain executives, and manufacturing and non-manufacturing enterprises, that are leading initiatives to help prepare their companies' supply chains for the significant challenges of today's business climate. This year's list includes more than 200 individuals from software firms and service providers, consultancies or academia, who helped their supply chain clients or the supply chain community at large prepare to meet these challenges—and more than 30 Practitioner Pros, who do the same within their own companies.
Mr. Yearling's key focus has been on automating the digitization of inventory, equipment, and processes for the company's customers. His leadership has also been crucial on applying innovative unmanned aircraft technology, or autonomous drones, coupled with optical, RFID, and other sensors to drive value in the supply chain beyond last-mile delivery.
