MAC Source, a key distributor and logistics provider for the food manufacturing industry, announced it has chosen to use the INC2inc e-Marketplace as its online exchange and supply-chain management solution. INC2inc’s e-Marketplace will allow MAC Source to provide better service to their customers, run a more efficient organization, and reduce the costs of doing business. After researching numerous e-commerce options, ranging from building a private extranet to evaluating e-marketplaces in the industrial food sector, MAC Source chose INC2inc. They selected INC2inc’s e-Marketplace because it presented the most comprehensive answer to the problems that exist in the supply chain today.

“INC2inc clearly understands the food manufacturing business, and they are building a complete supply chain solution that specifically addresses the unique requirements of our industry,” said Tim Cambias, chairman and CEO of MAC Source.

Maintaining an active catalog of over 600 items, MAC Source currently buys products from 130 suppliers and sells to over 500 buyers, performing over 15,000 transactions annually. MAC Source has its main distribution center in Atlanta, as well as outside storage space throughout the southeast and southwest, adding to the complexity. The number of suppliers, buyers, items, transactions and locations creates an information reconciliation challenge.

“MAC Source needed a solution that would automate the current manually intensive task of order management. By using INC2inc’s e-Marketplace we can better serve our customers–which is critical to our success and survival,” said MAC Source president and COO, Randy Cimorelli. “In addition to providing better customer service, we will be able to reduce our costs and the costs to our trading partners through the transportation services, reconciliation services and supply chain planning tools that INC2inc provides through the e-Marketplace.”

MAC Source’s sister company Massey-Fair has also signed a co-marketing agreement recognizing INC2inc’s e-Marketplace as the solution of choice for food manufacturers and their suppliers.
