“Olga has been instrumental in furthering Redwood’s operations south of the border,” said Troy Ryley, President of International Services, Redwood. “In Mexico, she has helped further Redwood’s as a leading capacity and visibility solution among shippers looking to move freight across the border. She has also been critical in developing Mexico into a viable sourcing option for companies in the United States as they look to shorten their supply chains and cash-to-cash cycles.”
As Redwood’s suite of capabilities expands to include the company’s newly announced carbon tracking and sustainability tool, Redwood Hyperion, Weiser will continue layering physical supply chains with the digital capabilities provided by Redwood. Providing a single point-of-truth for accessible data.
Salinas will continue helping Redwood Mexico customers overcome disruptions such as driver shortages, spiked fuel prices, capacity costs, visibility constraints and more. She looks to continue providing a complete solution for shippers in the region to ensure the flow of goods from Mexico into the United States remains as smooth as possible.
“This award, the winners and those who submitted nominations—both men and women—is a testament that supply chain organizations were already recognizing their female leaders; they just needed a better platform,” says Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Supply & Demand Chain Executive and Food Logistics. “This year, we received over 280 submissions. Almost 100 of those submissions came from men. I’m so proud of everyone who participated, both men and women. I’m proud to call these women mentors, role models and industry friends.”
