Case Study: LiVe’s Services are UNREAL for One Food Industry Client
Learn in our latest case study how LiVe helps a prominent food industry client save time, money, and headaches when it comes to supply chain logistics.
UNREAL, a producer of healthy snack bars and treats, requires fast and reliable shipping for their refrigerated goods. From milk chocolate “gems” to almond butter cups, their products must be carefully transported in climate-controlled trucks kept under 70° F.
A few years ago, the UNREAL team went in search of a freight partner to manage their growing demand, and LiVe’s team brought the expertise, technology and care they needed.
A Cool Solution to Complex Supply Chain Logistics
“LiVe solves problems – and you can’t put a dollar amount on those problems,” said Brian Bauersfeld, UNREAL’s Director of Operations. When Bauersfeld joined UNREAL, LiVe was an existing partner – one that got a “big thumbs up” from everyone at the company.
For years, LiVe has worked closely with UNREAL’s team to successfully schedule and deliver shipments of their goods across the US to retailers such as:
- Whole Foods
- And others
Bauersfeld was particularly impressed with the dedication of LiVe’s team who work around the clock – and on weekends – to ensure deliveries are successfully completed.
“LiVe puts out the fires for us,” Bauersfeld said, “I do feel like they’re an extension of our team, especially on the logistics front.”
With LiVe’s help, the UNREAL team regularly delivers on-schedule, climate-controlled shipments of their natural, gluten-free, and fair-trade certified snacks. And with a suite of best of breed technology, including 24/7 tracking software, Bauersfeld can stay in the loop on the status and location of shipments. Read the full case study here.
A Partner That Delivers
LiVe’s team handles a wide variety of UNREAL’s shipments, including their full truckload (FTL) business and reefer trucks for their meltable goods.
In the food transportation business, the quality of the product is critical to the health and safety of consumers; even the smallest of errors can spell trouble for the manufacturer. Late deliveries, logistical fires, and broken promises can compromise your entire truckload of goods. Working with a professional freight and trucking brokerage partner can:
- Drive down your total cost of ownership (TCO)
- Protect the quality and safety of your products
- Ensure on-time deliveries
- Avoid late fees and other penalties
LiVe offers a variety of 3PL services from full truckload (FTL) to less-than-truckload (LTL), shared truckload (STL), multi-stop deliveries, drop trailers, sprinter vans, and more. We have decades of expertise in the food transportation industry and work closely with a variety of clients to provide refrigerated, frozen, and reefer transportation services, among others.
