Streamline Frozen and Refrigerated Shipping
Refrigerated trailers resemble their dry shipping counterparts; however, they come equipped with temperature control capabilities. They are used to safely transport temperature-sensitive product or perishable goods.
While as critical for domestic transport as dry trailers, refrigerated shipping is more specialized and less a part of most carriers’ operations. Thus, less capacity is available for your temperature-critical product. The reality of this situation requires strategic carrier choice to keep costs at a minimum.
Additionally, most specialized frozen and refrigerated carriers operate on a regional level, requiring you to manage multiple carrier relationships at once. Having numerous points of contact and disparate data sources makes it difficult to gain widespread visibility into your network and to fully optimize your temperature-controlled shipping.
Streamline this complicated process by working with Zipline Logistics. Acting as your single point of contact, we can manage multiple carrier relationships on your behalf, identifying areas for improvement and cost savings throughout your cold chain network. Our temperature-controlled shipping experts work with you to provide critical insight into your logistics network to improve performance.
