Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s award recognizes outstanding executives whose accomplishments offer a roadmap for other leaders looking to leverage supply chain for competitive advantage
Redwood City, CA— TruckLabs, the trucking technology company transforming the industry through innovative software and hardware solutions, today announced its CEO and founder Daniel Burrows has been honored by Supply & Demand Chain Executive as one of the winners of the 2022 Pros to Know award.
The award celebrates executives who have propelled the supply chain industry forward in the face of massive disruption throughout the past 18 months, considering the executives’ achievements, initiatives, and leadership.
“When I look back at past Pros to Know winners, I see a lot of individuals who accomplished a lot of great achievements. But, this year’s winners are reinventing what it means to be a supply chain professional. This year’s winners are intuitive, adaptive and so super smart, and continue to push the envelope when it comes to everything supply chain-related,” said Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Supply & Demand Chain Executive and Food Logistics. “We received over 360 nominations this year, the highest number of nominations ever for this award. It’s proof that today’s supply chain professionals are not only doing great things for the supply chain, but are also being supported by their teams, peers and partners.”
“It is an honor to be recognized as a Pro to Know within the supply chain industry,” said Burrows. “And while I am humbled by this honor, I believe this recognition is a testament to the passion of the TruckLabs team as a whole to stand behind our mission: building powerful technologies to help trucking companies heighten their efficiencies and promote sustainability across their commercial fleets.. The dedication and drive of our team to execute against this mission has made TruckLabs an industry leader.”
TruckLabs has continued to provide trucking companies with technology to combat some of its most difficult challenges – rising fuel prices and increased focus on sustainability – launching its Gen 3 TruckWings earlier this month. The next generation of the active aerodynamic device can be leveraged across trucks of all fuel types and includes live Carbon Tracking and OEM engagement to reduce drag and save 4-6% on fuel.
Established in 2014, TruckLabs (formerly XStream Trucking) is a design and engineering company building technology for the long-haul trucking industry. Its flagship technology, TruckWings™, automatically closes the tractor-trailer gap, reducing a fleet’s fuel bill without requiring additional actions by the driver or any trailer modifications. Founded out of Stanford University, TruckLabs has won awards in several Department of Energy (DOE) competitions including National CleanTech Awards and CalTech’s FLoW competition and Heavy Duty Trucking Top 20 Products of 2019. TruckWings are currently deployed within carrier fleets that average more than two million miles per week. For more information visit: https://www.trucklabs.com/.
