Stord CEO Sean Henry Recognized as Food Logistics’s 2021 Rock Star of Supply Chain

Stord CEO and co-founder Sean Henry has been named a Rock Star of Supply Chain by Food Logistics, an award that recognizes the influential individuals whose achievements, hard work and vision have shaped the global cold food supply chain. Congratulations to all of this year’s winners, who include professionals from software providers, consultancies and academia, trucking and transportation firms, grocery, retail and delivery outlets, and more. 

“These professionals are making waves in an industry upended by the global pandemic. Whether it’s pivoting into a different channel or implementing emerging technologies, these supply chain leaders prove that hard work pays off,” says Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “These winners collaborated, optimized, developed, educated and played a critical role in the survival and success of their company amid a global pandemic.” 

Stord partnered with leading cold storage providers and integrated a freight offering into our platform in 2020 to create more liquid capacity for many of our retail, food, and beverage customers who were fighting hard to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. As the preeminent cloud distribution platform, Stord was able to provide more flexible operations with increased visibility for these shippers as well as to chemical and health companies who were faced with an overwhelmingly urgent demand for their products.

Over the next year, we’ll be continuing to innovate our software and logistics network to be at the forefront of the cloud shift in enterprise logistics. To talk to one of our supply chain experts about our warehousing and freight services, get in touch.
