Oakland, CA, March 4, 2014 - International Asset Systems® (IAS), the leader in cloud-based solutions for intermodal transportation, announces that Chief Commercial Officer, Christopher P. Mazza, has been named a 2014 Provider Pros to Know by Supply & Demand Chain Executive magazine. Chris is recognized for spearheading the company’s innovative solution for the evolving US chassis-provisioning model, ChassisManager, which enables asset providers to easily and conveniently rent their chassis to their motor carrier partners and other potential chassis users. The robust solution enables motor carriers to monitor their chassis usage, view and reconcile rental charges, and secure payment, resulting in improved billing cycles and operational efficiencies while reducing issues associated with complex ocean carrier chassis billing rules.
“ChassisManager empowers clients with the ability to deliver truly differentiated services to their motor carrier and ocean carrier trading partners, creating efficiencies, visibility into usage activity and providing business intelligence for better decision making,” said Christopher P. Mazza, Chief Commercial Officer at IAS. “It’s an honor to be selected for the “Provider Pros to Know” award and acknowledged, among other leaders, for the value IAS brings to the market and our clients.”
"Supply Chain is increasingly recognized as a strategic differentiator for leading small, medium and large enterprises, and Supply Chain leaders have become crucial to the success of the enterprise in meeting the challenges of what truthfully has been called a turbulent economy,” said Barry Hochfelder, editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “Our Pros to Know listing highlights many of these outstanding executives and their accomplishments, and it offers a roadmap for other leaders looking to leverage Supply Chain for competitive advantage. Their efforts in developing the tools, processes and knowledge base necessary for Supply Chain transformation, and in promoting new approaches to supply chain enablement, have earned them a place on this year's Pros listing.”
Chris has over 25 years of experience in the international intermodal industry and related technology managing a variety of functions including land operations, finance, sales, implementation, marketing, and business development. Chris has significant experience in developing and delivering intermodal solutions to ocean carriers, freight forwarders, leasing companies and associated intermodal trading partners.
