Well folks, the wait is over. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration finally released the final Food Safety and Modernization Act (FSMA) ruling on April 5th, 2016. Last month, I wrote a blog about the anticipated ruling and how it might impact the food supply chain. We are fortunate to work with many great food manufacturers and pet food manufacturers and to witness first hand, their dedication towards the safety of our food. As we all comply with these new rules and implement any changes, I should mention that the new ruling is a total of 283 pages. While this is equivalent to a mini novel, I doubt we will see many bound copies at the airport book stores.
March 31, 2016 (Frisco, TX.) – NT Logistics, headquartered in Frisco, Texas, announced today the acquisition of certain assets of Anchor Freight LLC located in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. NT Logistics Inc., a leading 3PL founded in 1999, serves many customers in the Consumer Package Goods arena. NT Logistics, with their dedicated sector, Refrigerated & Frozen Foods group, and large Brokerage Division, is pleased to expand their industry presence with their newly created Specialized Division. Anchor Freight, with its core competency in heavy haul, flatbed, and specialized transportation, is a premier provider to the construction, oilfield, and rental equipment industries.
Lynn Gravley, President and CEO of NT Logistics, stated, “This new partnership will allow us to expand our network and enable us to leverage our technology and services for a greater variety of customers.
