iTradeNetwork was formed 14 years ago with a vision of transforming the way that complex supply chains — such as those found across the food industry — exchanged goods and services. We knew that if we could help to remove the complexity and cost, we could make a big difference to our customer’s bottom lines. We also knew that we would be helping them to deliver the best products at the best price to their customers.
The single most important belief we had then, and still have today, is that collaboration is the key to achieving supply chain excellence. The easier we make it for trading partners to interact with each other, exchange data and stay in sync throughout their business interactions, the more efficient each partner will operate. Enabling collaboration was what our original trading network was all about, and it’s core to every solution we offer today.
Today, we are proud to call more than 10,000 companies from across the food industry our customers, including:
- 16 of the 20 largest grocery retailers in North America
- 9 of the 10 largest foodservice distributors in North America
- The 5 largest food service management companies
- 11 of the 20 largest restaurant chains
- Approximately 95% of Fresh shippers (produce, meat, seafood, floral)
We’ve reached the point of critical mass such that when a new customer comes on board, they can begin collaborating with the majority of their existing trading partners in a very short period of time. They also have the opportunity to connect with new trading partners in a much more efficient way.
To augment the power of the network, we have developed a comprehensive suite of solutions aimed at improving efficiency across the supply chain. Among the most popular are solutions for procurement, order management, contracts & rebates, product traceability, trade intelligence and data services.
If you are already in the network, we would like to say thank you for believing in our vision and in us. If you are new to iTradeNetwork, we would like to say welcome. In all cases, we would love to hear how we could better serve your needs. Please contact us with any ideas or requests. We look forward to hearing from you.
