Temperature Controlled Transportation Services
RLS offers a wide range of transportation solutions to get your products where they need to be, when they need to be there, and at the lowest possible cost. Our services include a regional transportation program, Refrigerated Trucking, Truckload (TL) and Less Than Truckload (LTL) services throughout the U.S., and multi-vendor consolidation services. From our five locations in the Northeast, we provide a single source for transportation, warehousing, distribution and fulfillment needs.
Our regional transportation program can handle shuttle services to and from your facilities to ours. We provide drayage services to and from all regional ports. Along with our national distribution and cold storage warehousing, this ensures a complete turnkey logistics solution. We can also handle any raw materials that are inbound to your facility within the Northeast.
We offer one of the best refrigerated transportation schedules in the Northeast with 48-state LTL and TL delivery service anywhere in the contiguous United States on a regular basis. Pickups are made throughout the week so that orders can be consolidated and shipped to their final destinations. We have daily scheduled regional routes, and weekly scheduled national routes. Our transportation services are completely integrated with our warehousing operations to ensure efficient management of shipments from point of origin to destination.
LTL Service Schedules
REDUCE INVENTORY CARRYING COSTS
For companies that don’t have the ability to maintain an inventory, or who wish to reduce their inventory carrying costs, can ‘make to order’ and utilize our LTL/Cross-Docking solution. The challenge of ‘making to order’ is that food companies need consistent weekly pickup service at their facility. Our LTL solution provides that service.
‘MAKING TO STOCK’ IS NOT AN OPTION
Certain perishable products that have a shelf life of less than a month typically do not get ‘made to stock’. By its very nature this type of product needs to be ‘made to order’.
ELIMINATE THE CHALLENGE OF
Last-mile deliveries to the Northeast US can be a major burden for food processors or the delivering carrier. Food companies, or other logistics providers, often drop orders destined for the Northeast at our cross-dock and have us handle the final delivery. The result is better on-time performance as well as reduced costs.
