Mobile Manifest Technology Improves Efficiency and Visibility for Members, Haulers, Producers, and Dispatchers

 

FRISCO, Texas – March 17, 2021 – Dairy Farmers of America (DFA), a national dairy cooperative serving over 13,000 farm family-owners across the country, has completed a successful initial implementation of Mobile Manifest by Dairy.com to support the tireless efforts of its team members who are involved in the milk transportation process. The cooperative is now using the application to manage nearly 10,000 manifests every month in one of its key regions.


“Mobile Manifest allows us to harvest load information, making the data accessible more quickly,” said Tim Houck, Vice President of Fluid Milk Operations at DFA. “That’s important because it helps improve business processes and gives us the ability to make more informed decisions – directly benefiting our members, customers, haulers, and cooperative.”

Mobile Manifest streamlines data entry points, reducing common paper errors for haulers, while also providing real-time visibility of load information and tracking for dispatchers. The solution has proven to be all the more valuable amidst a global pandemic, allowing DFA to provide the safety of hands-free milk delivery for drivers and plant personnel. 

“Mobile Manifest digitizes the dairy supply chain at its origin – at dairy farms,” said Dairy.com CEO Scott Sexton. “On its own, the solution creates tremendous efficiency and offers critical visibility. But more importantly, especially when paired with our other leading technologies, Mobile Manifest allows Dairy.com to provide end-to-end tracking and traceability for full supply chain transparency.”
