Refrigerated trucking demands a high on-time percentage. That’s why distributors of perishable foods and goods who need refrigerated truckload in Houston, TX, turn to Longshot Logistics for their refrigerated transport needs!
Frozen foods need to arrive frozen. Fresh produce needs to arrive fresh. Perishables need to arrive ready for sale.
Refrigerated transport makes this possible. Of course, this requires a capacity to meet every grower’s and distributor’s need. It also requires a high on-time percentage. When it comes to refrigerated trucking, late delivers simply don’t work.
Refrigerated Trucking Starts with Customer Service
For every refrigerated shipment to arrive on-time, it’s essential your freight broker and carriers clearly understand your need. Customer service representatives must take the time to know what your shipping, where it’s going and how best to get it there. They must also communicate consistently and, in our opinion, constantly to ensure you always know the status of your refrigerated shipment.
Frozen Foods and Perishables Need to Arrive On-time
Businesses that ship frozen foods, perishable goods and produce should vet their refrigerated truckload broker before arranging their first shipment. A business should be comfortable with their refrigerated transport shipper. They should also know what to expect in terms of communication, responsibility and capacity.
Fast refrigerated truckload quotes are great, but they don’t guarantee an on-time delivery or quality customer service.
Refrigerated Truckload in Houston and Across the U.S.
The best experience for a refrigerated shipment will come from a company that puts customer service first. A shipper should look for a company with a commitment to communicate (or even over-communicate!). Of course, on-time percentage is essential too. High capacity may be a consideration and one worth asking about as well.
