The business of refrigerated food LTL pool consolidation is tricky stuff… with focus on food safety concerns and in-transit temperature monitoring technologies proliferating, you’ve got to keep temperatures just right, and you don’t have time to deal with customer refusals from inexperienced carriers who don’t know the nuances of this business. We are the experts in refrigerated food transport and are proud to deliver the same food and brands that our families enjoy at dinner every night.
Your products have an important destination. With scheduled LTL delivery to all 48 states from the upper Midwest and truckload service from all 48 states back to the Midwest, we’ll make sure they get where they’re going — cold, clean, correct, and on time.
LTL POOL CONSOLIDATION
Our transportation team offers the Midwest’s largest refrigerated and frozen freight consolidation program for “less than truckload” orders. Our pool program has the capability to handle your temperature-sensitive products that are stored in our facilities or cross docked from your facility. Nationwide deliveries are scheduled weekly to every 3-digit zip code in the continental United States, with 200+ loads shipped weekly.
We are asset-based with company drivers complemented by more than 50 owner/operators. We have refrigerated and frozen truckload capacity from every location in the continental United States.
DEDICATED SHUTTLE SERVICE
Our team has put together dedicated shuttle programs for many MRS customers. Raw materials or ingredients can be stored at our facilities and delivered to your production plant on a just-in-time basis. We also have shuttle programs in place for picking up finished goods from one or more plants and delivering to our warehouse sites. We can customize a dedicated program to fit your needs.
We offer cross-dock services to those customers with pre-picked orders going into our LTL pool consolidation program. We can pick up your orders from your facility or receive 24/7 from your trucks or carriers. With our service certain sailing schedule and our Midwest pool point, we can receive orders for many different regions from an origin on a single load, and perform the final customer delivery leg anywhere in the continental United States.
Our logistics team has extensive relationships with smaller niche carriers that share our values. We share our best practices with them and in turn they become an extension of our capacity. We can harness this capacity to help solve your transportation challenges.
