Countervailing storylines created big challenges for 3PL warehouses during the pandemic. Attendees filled-to-capacity a session titled, “The Truth About the Labor Shortage for 3PL Warehouses” at CSCMP EDGE in Nashville, Tennessee where a panel of industry experts discussed the effects of the pandemic on the availability and characteristics of warehouse laborers and the future impact to supply chains.
Music City did not disappoint as a few members of our team attended the CSCMP's premier event of the year: EDGE 2022 in Nashville!
Rob Doyle, Hugh Tait, Robin Siekerman, and Maggie Harvey joined thousands of industry professionals from September 18 - 21, 2022 at CSCMP’s annual conference to connect and discover the latest innovations, new strategies, and best practices.

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.
