Shipper — Best Practices
Time is essential when shipping temperature-controlled food and beverage freight. Because these items have a limited shelf life, getting product on shelves and in the hands of the consumers is a true race against the clock. To help ensure an uninterrupted supply chain, using a dedicated provider can solve the biggest food and beverage challenges that put fresh freight—and the bottom line—at risk.
There’s a low margin of error when shipping refrigerated freight, and a dedicated configuration means consistency for retailers and customers.
For temperature-controlled shipping, retailers have specific requirements when receiving food freight. Shippers need a carrier that has longstanding relationships with retailers and can meet their delivery expectations.
To keep a supply chain running smoothly means finding a carrier that puts proven processes and performance into play every day. This keeps temperature-controlled freight moving predictably and consistently.
An ongoing investment in the right equipment and technology is imperative to expertly manage the time-sensitive and high-value loads inherent in shipping perishables and temperature-controlled freight. This type of commitment helps optimize the supply chain and bring greater value to a shipper’s business.
Acting as an extension of a shipper’s team, a dedicated transportation solution for shipping refrigerated freight keeps supply chains moving and shelves stocked.
