Cold Chain Logistics
Temperature-sensitive goods must be safely transported to prevent loss, eliminate safety risks, extend product shelf life, and ensure high-quality goods for customers. If you’re looking for co-packing, creations, or warehouse and storage services, make Valley Cold storage and transportation solutions an integral part of your business plan.
What Is Cold Chain Logistics?
Cold chain logistics is a process that allows for the safe transport of temperature-sensitive products along the supply chain. Perishable goods require precise temperature control from production through final use. It is commonly used in the food, health care, produce, and pharmaceutical industries to transport perishable products that require proper temperature controls in storage and transit.
Our Cold Chain Logistics Services
At Valley Cold, our knowledgeable consulting team has extensive experience in cold chain logistics solutions, having helped countless businesses build logistical solutions custom-tailored to their unique needs. Our team of specialists has expertise in all areas of the entire supply chain, such as import and export cold chain management, warehouse design, logistics network strategy, and operational efficiency improvements.
Traffic management is the planning, arranging, and purchasing the transportation services required to move a business’s freight. It is one of the most important aspects of logistics and involves freight consolidation, carrier selection, loss and damage claims, tracking and expediting, and use of private carriage.
Freight consolidation saves time and money while reducing emissions. Our flexible solutions help businesses manage their spending without sacrificing speed. With freight consolidation options, you can maximize your supply chain efficiency, reduce providers, and avoid costly penalties. If you’re moving temperature-controlled goods, let Valley Cold handle the logistics of combining your less-than-container load (LCL) or less-than-truckload (LTL) freight into full shipments for better outcomes.
Valley Cold provides businesses with consolidated ground freight forwarding to help your operations proceed smoothly. Our team can help facilitate border transfers, in addition to aiding in the transport of bulk load items and packages. We offer freight forwarding services to meet various temperature and transportation speed requirements, whether you are moving dairy products, medical supplies, or other temperature-sensitive products.
Shipment routing is essential for supply chain optimization, agility, and sustainability. For the shipper, routing is the process of designating the carrier service level to deliver a shipment and involves fulfilling the ship via specific instructions. For the carrier, routing creates a delivery plan consisting of a transportation route for the shipment.
Freight bills often contain errors that could impact your business’s bottom line. At Valley Cold, we frequently catch and fix errors in our client’s invoices that may otherwise go unnoticed without a comprehensive freight audit. Our freight audit services are designed to closely examine, adjust, and verify company freight bills for accuracy.
