Millbrae, California, UNITED STATES

Mountain View, Cal. , Dec. 20, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cargo Chief has received two distinct honors this month. The tech-enabled 3PL was named to the 13th annual FL100+ list by Food Logistics, and was also recognized with a 2016 “Green Supply Chain Award” by Supply & Demand Chain Executive. Both honors are featured in the December issues of the respective publications. Food Logistics is the only publication dedicated exclusively to the global food and beverage supply chain, while Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s “Green Supply Chain Award” recognizes companies that make green practices and sustainability a core part of their strategy.

Cargo Chief unlocks hidden transportation capacity by empowering trucking carriers and providing superior service to shippers. Cargo Chief was founded in 2012 to find inefficiencies in the transportation process and solve capacity problems for thousands of shipping companies on a daily basis, including multiple Fortune 100 food and beverage companies. By making loads available to its carrier network, Cargo Chief can source any shipment using patented, proprietary aggregation and machine learning technology.

SunTerra Produce, a shipper of a diverse range of fresh fruits and vegetables from Chicago, has been a Cargo Chief customer for more than a year:

“The value we’ve received from Cargo Chief is in its fantastic technology, which gives us peace of mind and gives our customers a real, actual understanding of where their product and load is and when it’s going to arrive,” said Shaun Black, produce broker for SunTerra. “That seems like a simple concept, but when you’re moving as many loads a week as we do, it can be daunting to gather all of that information.”

Cargo Chief’s triangulation technology tracks the location of a shipment in real time and shows the location on a map from any smartphone or computer. Customers can easily track their own shipments, which relieves SunTerra from having to stay on top of a shipment’s progress.

By making loads available to their 500,000+ network of nationwide carriers, Cargo Chief can source any shipment. Cargo Chief’s carrier search provides food shippers like SunTerra the best capacity options for their loads, instantly.

“Everyone at Cargo Chief is validated by recognition from the food and beverage industry as well as our sustainability efforts,” said Russel Jones, CEO of Cargo Chief. “We pride ourselves on helping our food shipper customers like SunTerra get their products to shelves with speed and efficiency, while the products are at their freshest.”

“As well, Cargo Chief was founded on the idea of efficiency and sustainability, on finding and making available the hidden capacity that is a result of trucks running empty during a trip,” concluded Jones.
