Major Food Manufacturer

For temperature controlled and reefer trucking needs, we can help…

  • Maintain product quality. Delays at the border or on the road can be costly for perishable products. So we stay on top of reefer truck shipments and do everything in our power to ensure timely arrival. Frankly, we care in a way that most carriers do not.
  • Comply with regulations. Our dedicated compliance manager stays abreast of government regulated mandates from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CIFA) and U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and can point you in the right direction to get your questions answered.
  • Reduce cost. Sure, we can often beat common carrier prices for U.S. inbound and outbound LTL shipments. But the real cost-saving potential lies in eliminating the hidden cost of shipping mistakes. We treat your products, and your freight budget, like they are our own. Having a true partner by your side delivers savings far beyond the pennies you might save from shopping freight rates.
  • Consolidate loads. We can leverage our freight volume to combine your LTL loads (both dry and temperature controlled freight) with other shipments to create a faster, cheaper truckload shipment.
