“From driver shortages to natural disasters, the last 12 months have continued to challenge the 3PL space. But it’s the 3PLs and the cold storage providers that keep moving cold food product through the chain, despite the disruption,” says Marina Mayer, editor-in-chief of Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “And, it’s these 3PLs and cold storage providers that work to adopt and adapt to operate in a safer, more efficient manner. That’s why it’s important we honor and celebrate the top 3PLs and cold storage providers, both nationally and internationally.”
As the only fully integrated port-to-door transportation and supply chain logistics provider in North America, Ryder’s technology suite supports a fully optimized supply chain with greater speed-to-market. Ryder’s one-of-a-kind visibility and collaboration platform RyderShareTM enables everyone involved in moving goods through supply chains – including shippers, receivers, carriers, and service providers – to easily see across the supply chain in real time and work together to prevent costly delays and find efficiency gains.
“That kind of next-level visibility and collaboration in today’s disruptive supply chain environment is critical for the food and beverage supply chain where reliability and time and temperature controls are paramount,” says Darin Cooprider, senior vice president of consumer packaged goods for Ryder. “And when you combine real-time visibility with our technology-enabled, end-to-end transportation logistics solutions, we’re in a position to deliver significantly increased value for food and beverage brands looking for more dynamic supply chain solutions.”
