Case Study: White Glove Transportation Services for Nutrabolt Energy Drinks

Learn how freight brokerage services of LiVe Logistics help Nutrabolt deliver their energy drinks on time over 99.5% of the time.

As a company that specializes in refining human performance, Nutrabolt prides itself on products that innovate and inspire. Offering a variety of nutritional supplements, pre- and post-workout products, and an energy drink based on pre-workout science, Nutrabolt’s transportation requirements include temperature-controlled trucks, reliable shipments, and a partner that matches their level of excellence.

When Nutrabolt’s Logistics Manager, Jon Pruitt, recently joined the company, he knew just the partner to bring on.

The White Glove Carrier of Choice

Pruitt had a previous relationship with LiVe Logistics from his former role at Kerry Group, a public food company based in Ireland.

“Where LiVe rose to the front: they were our white glove carrier of choice. They became known within Kerry Group and with our biggest retail customers,” said Pruitt. “LiVe would be requested by the retail customer to run priority loads because of their service.”

Some of his retail customers were so enthusiastic and “verbal in their praise for LiVe Logistics” that they became the exclusive carrier for shipments to store locations across the country. When he worked with Kerry, they had a pool of over 230 carriers, and LiVe was always in their top five performers, meeting – and exceeding – their needs each time.

“LiVe’s team – from ownership down – has been fantastic to work with… so when I came over to Nutrabolt, I brought them over fairly quickly,” added Pruitt.

Season-Based Services Specific to Nutrabolt’s Needs

LiVe works with Nutrabolt as a freight broker, acting as a carrier across multiple modes. From multi-stop trucks and other traditional modes to temperature-controlled freight and intermodal transportation, LiVe orchestrates a variety of transportation, working extensively with Nutrabolt’s team to ensure products are delivered safely and on-time.

For six months out of the year from October to March, all of Nutrabolt’s beverage shipments must be temperature-controlled to maintain the integrity of the product. LiVe’s team works with Pruitt and the Nutrabolt logistics team to transition smoothly from one mode of transportation to the next throughout the seasons.

99.5%+ On-Time Rates & Consistent Communication

Accuracy, consistency and reliability are currency in the transportation space – and for Nutrabolt, the experience with LiVe’s services has included all three.

“They’re a good partner to work with,” Pruit noted. “If they can’t do something or when there’s an issue, they communicate it well.”

LiVe’s team meets – and exceeds – Nutrabolt’s transportation metrics, always providing a 99.5% on-time rate, or above. Another perk, notes Pruitt, is that LiVe always accepts loads.

“Where LiVe stands out is in their personalized service from the top down of the company,” said Pruitt. “We’ve had excellent account representation and their communication is really what has stood out to me – and it’s what has allowed me to continue working with them over the years.”
