Open Sky Group Named for Tenth Time to SupplyChainBrain’s 2022 “100 Great Supply Chain Partners”

RALEIGH, N.C. (August 9, 2022) – Open Sky Group was nominated by magazine readership and its customers as one of SupplyChainBrain’s “100 Great Supply Chain Partners” for 2022, marking the 10th consecutive time in the firm’s history that it has received the honor.

List nominees include vendors and service providers whose ”technology, logistics, transportation or consulting solutions” have made a significant impact on customer efficiency in recent years. Honorees had to be nominated in written testimonials touching on one or more of 10 characteristics of business performance, including “reliability, service excellence, value, knowledge of the customer’s business, problem-solving skills, an attitude of continuous improvement, solid after-sales support, a positive ‘can-do’ attitude, global reach and strong leadership.”

Open Sky Group, founded in 2006, offers rapid implementation and upgrade services for Blue Yonder’s warehouse, labor and transportation management solutions, as well as managed services and supply chain advisory consulting services worldwide.

“This recognition is especially gratifying as it springs from our customers directly,” said Open Sky Group VP of Client Services, Eric “Mac” MacPherson. “Even before the additional strain on supply chains in recent years, we’ve always believed it is incumbent upon us to go above and beyond in our customer service. This award is external validation of that.”

SupplyChainBrain has been publishing the “100 Great Supply Chain Partners” list for 20 years.  To view this year’s installment, please visit here.
