Organic Chocolatier Terrafina Relies on Cargo Chief to Find Holiday Shipping Capacity

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Nov. 17, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Like every food manufacturer that specializes in chocolate and candies, the holiday season for Terrafina is the most important time of the calendar year. Orders spike, inventory ramps up and shipping product to customers on-time is of the highest importance. This year, Terrafina, an organic food manufacturer that markets chocolate, candies and nuts, has geared up for the holidays by working with Cargo Chief, an innovative technology-enabled domestic freight broker that specializes in finding hidden transportation capacity for shippers. By making loads available to their 500,000+ network of nationwide carriers, Cargo Chief can source any load, even during the busiest of seasons.

“We ramp up orders and deliveries during the holidays like every other retailer, especially with our line of chocolate products,” said Terrafina Logistics Manager Sezgi Surozu. “This year—thanks to Cargo Chief—we have the peace of mind that our products will be out on trucks, on-time and in good hands to be delivered to all of our customers.”

Cargo Chief uses patented, proprietary aggregation and machine learning technology to find inefficiencies in the transportation process and source thousands of loads from shippers on a daily basis.
