Cargo Chief Named to 2015 Food Logistics 100

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Dec. 21, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cargo Chief, a tech-enabled third party logistics provider (3PL) that unlocks hidden capacity by empowering carriers and providing superior service to shippers, announced today that it has been named to the twelfth annual FL100+ list, a resource guide for the readers of Food Logistics and the entire food and beverage industry. The FL100+ list appears in the November/ December 2015 issue of Food Logistics, the only publication dedicated exclusively to the global food and beverage supply chain.

Cargo Chief uses patented, proprietary aggregation and machine learning technology to find inefficiencies in the transportation process and solve shipping capacity problems for hundreds of customers on a daily basis, including multiple Fortune 100 food and beverage providers.  

Terrafina, an organic food manufacturer that markets chocolate, candies and nuts, works with Cargo Chief to find shipping capability, maintain consistent deliveries and improve customer service levels during even the busy holiday season.

“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. “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.”

By making loads available to their 500,000+ network of nationwide trucks, Cargo Chief can source any shipment. Cargo Chief’s carrier search provides food shippers like Terrafina the best capacity options for their loads, instantly. Once the load is out on the road, Cargo Chief’s Cargo Locate® service provides real-time, 24/7 on-map location tracking.  

“Our recognition in the 2015 FL100+ is a validation of our patented technology, which empowers small and mid-sized carriers to compete for any load,” said Cargo Chief CEO Russell Jones.  “Freshness is among the biggest success factors for the food and beverage industry and we provide our customers with the best possible shipping options to get products to shelves on time.”

For more than a decade, the editors of Food Logistics have profiled software and technology providers that hold influential roles in the global food and beverage supply chain. Their products benefit the industry in multiple ways, from reducing food waste and extending shelf life, to facilitating safe and sanitary transportation of product while assuring regulatory compliance.

“Developments in the software and technology sector are generating new opportunities for growers, food manufacturers, grocery retailers and the many logistics providers that support them,” notes Lara L. Sowinski, editor-in-chief at Food Logistics. “Moreover, cloud-based solutions and mobile connectivity are helping create tools that are more flexible, affordable and responsive, making software and technology even more valuable to those in the global food supply chain.”
