- Sheer Logistics, a premier provider of Managed Transportation Services, value-based logistics, TMS technology, and Integration Platform as a Service (IPaaS) solutions purpose-built for mid-market companies, today announced that Anabel Cormier, Director of Sales, has been selected as one of the winners of this year's Women in Supply Chain Award. The award, bestowed by Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive, honors female supply chain leaders and executives whose accomplishments, mentorship, and examples set a foundation for women at all levels of a company's supply chain network.

"Since joining the logistics and supply chain industry in 2010, Anabel has distinguished herself as an emerging leader," said Joe Egertson, CEO of Sheer Logistics. "She has developed an extraordinarily well-rounded supply chain background in a relatively short time, having worked within transportation brokerages, asset-based providers, warehousing, and logistics technology. We are proud to have Anabel as a Sales leader at Sheer Logistics and I am excited to see what she accomplishes next."

"This year, we received over 400 submissions, the highest amount of applications not only for this award, but also for all of our awards. What's more, 118 of those applications were submitted by male counterparts, nominating their boss, co-worker or associate. Last year, that figure was just at 75. Also this year, 39 women self-nominated, a tremendous uptick from last year's award, which just saw 12 self-nominations. This shows progress. This shows hope that one day, we won't need an award like this because men and women in the supply chain will be equal," says Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive. "While there's still more work to be done, what we're doing is working. From truck drivers to CEOs, what these winners are doing matters to the future of all supply chains."

"Women have been making a significant impact in supply chain management, contributing to the growth and innovation of the supply chain industry. As more women join the supply chain workforce, they bring diverse perspectives that can help address complex supply chain problems and improve global supply chain operations. It is important that we empower, recognize and elevate these achievements through initiatives like the Women in Supply Chain Award, as seen through the overwhelming response. Congratulations to all the winners, those who nominated others and the bravery of those who nominated themselves," adds Sarah Barnes-Humphrey, founder of Let's Talk Supply Chain podcast and Blended Pledge project, both exclusive sponsors of the Women in Supply Chain award.
