A Twin Cities-based manufacturer of private label prepared dinners and other food products – with annual sales of approximately $25 million.
The northeast district warehouse for one of our client’s largest customers closed, and they needed a new way to move less-than-truckload (LTL) and partial loads to other customers in the area quickly – and at a competitive price.
We provided premium two- to three-day service (a rarity at the time) that helped them meet their scheduling and logistical goals, all at an attractive price.
Our fast, reliable transit times minimized the impact of the lost transit time due to the closing of the distribution warehouse. The client was able to maintain strong relationships – and sales – with its other customers in the region. In addition, we handled large partial orders at a cost well below the full truckload option, giving the client more value for their shipping dollar.
