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’s culture and agility enabled their customers to react quickly to immediate changes in their supply chains resulting from the pandemic. Collaboration with customers, especially in times of crisis, breeds knowledge and solutions for handling issues such as wild swings in inventory and capacity issues that created instant and unprecedented challenges. Rob Doyle, President of The Shippers Group, commented, “As a 3PL warehousing provider, we play an essential role in helping our customers manage their inventories. The events of the past two years have moved us to invest even more in new and updated technologies so that we remain well positioned to solidly handle our customers’ dynamic supply chains with cutting edge solutions.”
The Shippers Group, headquartered in the Dallas, Texas suburb of Hutchins, operates dedicated and multi-client warehouses for the food and consumer packaged goods industries. For over 120 years, the company has relied on its core values of integrity, innovation, excellence and safety to guide growth and expansion of services to include transportation, contract packaging and e-commerce fulfillment services.
