This week was Truck Driver Appreciation Week – a week where we come together to pay respect and thank professional Truck Drivers for their hard work and commitment in undertaking one of our economy’s most demanding and important jobs. These 3.6 million professional men and women not only deliver our goods safely, securely, and on time, but they also keep our highways safe.
The Shippers Group is excited to announce that we have an additional 200,000 square feet of multi-client warehousing space in our 3PL warehousing network!
Located in southern Dallas County and part of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, the Lancaster facility is conveniently located off I-20. Constructed in 2017, the facility at 2821 Danieldale Rd. in Lancaster, Texas is also convenient to I-35, the Dallas Railyard, and to DFW and Love Field Airports.
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 the 2022 Top 3PL & Cold Storage Providers award, which recognizes leading third-party logistics and cold storage providers in the cold food and beverage industry.
“These past 18 months have been so challenging for U.S. supply chains. It’s the continuous bottlenecks that require fleets to re-tool and pivot accordingly. But, it's the drivers, the fleet, the warehouses and software/technologies that really keep today's supply chains in line,” says Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “These 3PLs and cold storage providers have collaborated on all facets of their operations to achieve full visibility, complete forecasting, end-to-end leverage and the ultimate in sustainability. Now is the time to honor and celebrate those companies making magic happen behind the frontlines.”
The Shippers Group is a 3PL warehousing company that also enables CPG companies to have a total outsourced model for contract packaging. We package products according to our customers’ specifications while also eliminating the additional transportation and handling costs associated with moving the product across multiple supply chain links.
