LynnCo Supply Chain Solutions: Transforming Supply Chain

Great success stories of many businesses around the world rely on their supply chain. It is therefore important to understand the importance of a highly efficient and optimized supply chain. For companies providing supply chain solutions, it has always been a challenge to provide their customers with the best service at a low cost. Companies providing supply chain solutions need to make the necessary customizations to meet specific requirements pertaining to supply chain issues, while keeping up with global and economic challenges.

Founded by Mr. Lynn Fritz, LynnCo has a deep lineage with former Fritz Companies that was, the world’s largest freight forwarder with more than 10,000 employees in 120 offices around the world. Over more than 30 years, Fritz Companies legitimized global integrated logistics and set the stage for today’s global supply chain importance. In 2000, LynnCo was formed by Mr. Fritz with the vision of creating a new industry legacy applying advanced technology to global supply chain best practices. Since then, LynnCo has become known in niche markets as the marquee provider of global supply chain solutions.

In 2003, LynnCo was one of the first in the industry to adopt a web-based Transportation Management System (TMS) that integrated with LynnCo’s proprietary web interface, creating a seamless user experience to traverse the order to delivery cycle. This product enabled online collaboration between suppliers, manufacturers, distributors, carriers and end consumers. It also provided real-time visibility during the ordering, shipping and costing processes within the supply chain.

LynnCo’s SuiteEdge®

Today, LynnCo has expanded its proprietary, web-based technology platform, called SuiteEdge®, into a diverse variety of supply chain capabilities that enable its clients to “see” within their supply chain through carefully constructed control points, traceability, and analytics resulting in optimized performance and cost. The SuiteEdge® platform provides a data-driven approach to operations management and decision-making.

As an early adopter of technological advancements, LynnCo experienced slow implementation as the market learned how to best position technology and its application into their businesses. Automated shipping platforms were very sparse and online business transactions had not fully taken off yet. Today, LynnCo’s clients have come to expect the company to be an early adopter of advanced technologies, configuring them to best practices that optimize performance, and helping pave the road for their own business maturity. The effective use of data has become the fundamental way that the company’s clients compete and operate, so LynnCo provides the insights from end-to-end supply chain information in order to make better, smarter, real time, and fact-based decisions.

SuiteEdge® is highly refined and simple to implement with a process that can have companies up and running with a new solution in as few as 30 days. LynnCo’s supply chain performance strategies are the result of the innovative programming employed in designing developing SuiteEdge®.
