Vaché joins Bobby Grinstead, who was hired by the company earlier this year, as part of a dynamic and highly knowledgeable sales force. Both Vaché and Grinstead bring a wealth of experience and passion to FreightFlow and are committed to supporting companies who are looking for more efficient and cost-effective methods within the supply chain.

"I am excited to join FreightFlow to enhance current supply chain practices by offering this next-generation transportation software which will provide greater visibility and information to our industry to make well-informed decisions within their supply chain management process," Vaché said in a press release. "The opportunity to accurately measure transportation costs and improve the delivery of fresh produce to the consumer is vitally important."

The company's technology provides real-time dashboards, accessible anywhere by any device, that include lane-based cost reporting, profits and losses, document management and load board postings. The platform also integrates with key ERP and accounting systems Produce Pro, Famous and QuickBooks to ensure a seamless process and supply chain visibility.

With more than 100 years of experience in transportation, produce and technology, the sales team at FreightFlow is confident in providing helpful solutions to companies looking to be more efficient with their supply chain logistics.

"The customer base and its supply chain needs are changing constantly, and because of that constant change there is real need for innovative software that simplifies the procurement and movement of products," said Bud Floyd, chief executive officer at FreightFlow. "Our intuitive, user-friendly technology empowers fresh produce companies with the information needed to make the most effective business decisions."

"It was a great experience for our association and for me personally to have Dan transition from serving as a board member to becoming a staff member," said Tom Stenzel, president and chief executive officer of United Fresh. "His knowledge and leadership on supply chain issues really helped us increase our value and support to the membership. While we’ll miss his every day role on staff, we wish him well and will still count on his support once again as a volunteer leader at United."
