Your Cold Chain 3PL

Best Practices in 3PL Services
Home > Advantage Hanson > Your Cold Chain 3PL

Blending Asset and Non-Asset Transportation and Warehousing

A 3PL in food logistics assumes unique responsibilities compared to its counterpart in hard goods or non-foods CPG. Food safety and its adherence to strict protocol require greater diligence in each and every dimension of a 3PL service offering, especially temperature-controlled logistics. While greater transparency and greater accountability simply means we must partner with our customers for optimal success, these aspects are magnified in the cold chain, where every hand-off presents an opportunity for quality degradation.

Hanson Logistics leverages 60 years of experience as the 13th largest PRW and multi-modal transportation expertise to set the pace in 3PL temperature-controlled food logistics. We know that the success of the value-added food sector is premised on a reliable cold chain. The complexity of the agricultural and processed food supply chain continues to grow with the proliferation of flavor profiles, varieties, wholesale and retail SKUs. It demands attention to detail.

3PL Partner

The Hanson Logistics model, anchored in strength and core capabilities, answers to the voice of the customer.

Shipment Transitions are Critical in the Temperature-Controlled Supply Chain. That’s Why Leading Brands Choose Hanson Logistics.

  • We believe Hanson supports the same ideas we support: customer service, friendliness, and cost are as important to them as they are to us. We feel Hanson will grow as we grow.

    Thomas J. Navarre
    Vice President Petroleum Marketing & Logistics Family Express Corporation
  • Everyone we come across, customers, potential customers, carriers, they love our location; can’t believe that no one ever located in that northwest Indiana corridor. And as Chicago grows and traffic and congestion grow, our decision looks better and better.

    Andrew Janson
    President Hanson Logistics
  • Hanson has much greater access to carrier capacity and can give us better visibility across the supply chain. Day-to-day, they interface with our customer service to build optimum loads, while managing both inbound and outbound.
