Niche Expertise

Almost all of the goods we transport, including many Organic Valley® and Organic Prairie® products, are refrigerated, perishable products with a relatively short shelf life. We understand that for producers of products with a shorter shelf-life, managing inventory strategically is vital to ensure products are sold within their guarantee date, reducing waste and maintaining product quality.

Inventory Code Rotation

Whether you're a small farmer, a boutique brand, or anyone in between, freshness matters. It's the heart and soul of your business. Our system doesn't just keep things organized; it's your secret weapon for ensuring that what goes out is as fresh as the morning dew on a meadow. Our approach is simple: first in, first out. It's like a carefully choreographed dance for your products.

Lot Tracking and Traceability

Your goods are received into the Warehouse Management System and assigned a License Plate Number for traceability. If there’s ever a recall or the need to know where the pallet has been throughout its life cycle, the LPN stores that data. The WMS is lot controlled, and absolute FEFO (First Expired First Out) is utilized.

Our load planners wield this innovative system like masters of Tetris, ensuring that every inch of space is optimized for efficiency. Even when challenges like delays or unexpected fees pop up, this system has it all covered. It's a pricing and logistics wizard that helps us deliver your products on time and within budget, no matter how complex the puzzle.

Value-Added Services

If you just need a few cases shipped instead of a whole pallet, we offer case picking to help you stay flexible with your customers and their needs.

Claims Management

Claims may not be top of mind, but unfortunately, they do happen. We gladly handle your claims from documentation to resolution, minimizing your downtime and stress when issues arise. With us managing freight claims, you can focus on your core operations, knowing that your shipments are in capable hands.
