The American Truck Dealers (ATD) named the Kenworth T880 Vocational Truck with PACCAR MX-13 Engine as the 2015 Truck of the Year. The award was announced at the ATD Convention & Expo in San Francisco CA. Other finalists included the International WorkStar 7600 and the Peterbilt Model 567. This year’s competition focused on the vocational and heavy haul/severe duty truck category. During the competition, a panel of judges conducted test drives and evaluated each truck entry in key categories, which included innovation, design, safety, driver ergonomics, and comfort. “The Kenworth T880 establishes a new standard of excellence and builds upon Kenworth’s heritage of quality, innovation and technology to produce industry-leading, rugged and reliable vocational trucks,” said Preston Feight, Kenworth general manager. “This 2015 ATD Truck of the Year award reflects the many positive comments we have received from our customers about the T880’s outstanding performance, driver comfort and quiet cab.”

Hickory Farms Partners with Lean Logistics

Over the past two years Hickory Farms has collapsed its distribution network, consolidating inventory in one national warehouse and centralizing control of both inbound and outbound transportation. To enable this change and to manage its re-tooled transportation network, Hickory Farms partnered with Lean Logistics.

“When we collapsed all our warehouses, we started using cross-dock operations across the country, so transportation became extremely important to us,” says Ty Hanline, director of logistics at Hickory Farms. “We needed a partner who could help us connect all the dots.”

Hickory Farms selected Lean Logistics’ TMS solution because “it is very innovative and collaborative and its software-as-a-service model didn’t require a lot of capital,” Hanline says, “We basically aligned our entire supply chain using this piece and it has been one of our biggest successes.”
