Food Logistics, the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global cold food supply chain, named The Shippers Group as one of the winners of this year’s Top 3PL & Cold Storage Providers Award, which recognizes leading third-party logistics and cold storage providers in the cold food and beverage industry.
“From driver shortages to natural disasters, the last 12 months have continued to challenge the 3PL space. But it's the 3PLs and the cold storage providers that keep moving cold food product through the chain, despite the disruption,” says Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “And, it's these 3PLs and cold storage providers that work to adopt and adapt to operate in a safer, more efficient manner. That's why it's important we honor and celebrate the top 3PLs and cold storage providers, both nationally and internationally.”
Many of this year’s winners offer a variety of 3PL services, including air cargo, bulk/liquid bulk transportation, direct-store delivery, freight forwarding, refrigerated trucking, truckload brokerage, and more. Many of the cold storage services offered range including blast freezing, cross docking, inventory management, and warehousing/distribution management.
