Logistics Strategies That Save Time and Money

With every job, your shelf life or code commitments become our personal commitment. Drawing upon decades of experience in refrigerated consumer packaged goods logistics, we serve as an extension of your logistics team, working to minimize dock-to-dock delivery time so your products are received when you say they will be. A member of the Refrigerated Foods Association, NT Logistics strives to help our customers meet all quality-control standards for food safety.

We carefully balance costs and product shelf life requirements, then optimize every load for maximum efficiency and the lowest possible transportation expense.  least landed cost metrics, whether cost per case or cost per pound, are measured and tracked along with on-time delivery metrics. Creatively combining LTL (less than truckload) loads into multi-stop shipments is one tool we utilize in order to maximize truck weights whenever possible to create the most economical distribution strategy for each shipment.

With 24/7 communication and online shipment tracking and tracing, clients can log into their own multifunctional web portal to see where their perishable products are in the supply chain and verify proof of delivery. By staying a step ahead of any distribution issues, our clients can improve their communications and relationships with their own customers. We have found these lead to better manufacturer – supplier relationships across the spectrum.
