Company Helps the Industry Manage, Trade, and Move Bulk Dairy Commodities

Dairy.com, the dairy industry’s leading provider of web-based supply chain, transportation, and commodity trading solutions, commemorates 10 years of successful operations and innovative solutions. The company’s Software as a Service (SaaS) platform helps the industry gain market visibility, reduce costs, and improve efficiency as it manages bulk dairy commodities.

Throughout the industry, suppliers, producers, haulers, cooperatives, manufacturers, and retailers have benefited from these Dairy.com innovations:

  • Milk Solutions: In the dairy industry, most of a manufacturer’s cost is driven by milk supply. Dairy.com Milk Solutions help manage the raw milk supply chain from dispatching milk and paying producers all the way through receiving loads at the plant.
  • Trading Exchange: Dairy.com created a centralized marketplace for trading cream, condensed skim, and milk. This specialized commodity trading exchange helps Dairy.com customers efficiently work together across a secure, online platform.
  • Transportation: As a natural extension of the Trading Exchange, Dairy.com created its transportation market to connect businesses that need to ship bulk commodities with food-grade haulers. This provides an efficient and economical way to move bulk dairy commodities.

“Few technology companies have made a greater impact on the dairy industry than Dairy.com,” said Chris Policinski, CEO at Land O’Lakes, Inc. “By creating a central, web-based hub for the industry, Dairy.com revolutionized how the industry trades and transports bulk dairy commodities.”

Rob Cottet, Executive Vice President of Business Development for National Dairy, added, “Dairy.com has been very good for us. We decided to put all of our cream trading and scheduling on Dairy.com, and the results have been a dramatic enhancement to our cream program and improved ability to deliver quality cream and service with reduction in costs. Dairy.com helps us to better manage our dairy commodities.”

Dairy.com was founded with the help of dairy industry leaders in 2000. Its first product offering—the online, bulk dairy commodities trading exchange—addressed the sourcing and trading needs of the entire industry through an easy-to-use, neutral, and Internet-enabled platform. Following the success of the trading exchange, Dairy.com introduced cheese trading, forward contracting, transportation, milk solutions, and a number of other online services that meet mission-critical business needs of the dairy industry.

Looking ahead, the Company will continue to enhance and extend the value of its on-demand software solutions that provide a better way of doing business for the dairy industry.

“We’d like to extend our sincere gratitude to those customers who have worked with us over the past decade,” said Scott Sexton, CEO of Dairy.com. “It’s an honor to be recognized by our customers as technology partner, and we’ll continue working hard to make it easier for suppliers, haulers and manufacturers to do things more efficiently and more profitably.”
