CHATTANOOGA, Tenn., May 31, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Food Logistics, the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global cold food supply chain, named Covenant Logistics Group, Inc as one of the winners of this year’s Top 3PL & Cold Storage Providers Award, which recognizes leading third-party logistics and cold storage providers in the cold food and beverage industry.
“From driver shortages to natural disasters, the last 12 months have continued to challenge the 3PL space. But it's the 3PLs and the cold storage providers that keep moving cold food product through the chain, despite the disruption,” says Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “And, it's these 3PLs and cold storage providers that work to adopt and adapt to operate in a safer, more efficient manner. That's why it's important we honor and celebrate the top 3PLs and cold storage providers, both nationally and internationally.”
“Cold storage logistics requires attention to every detail. Our team is committed to knowing our customers’ exact requirements. We design high training standards and a consistent tracking process to meet those requirements. We believe these are the keys to providing superior service to our customers.” – Lynn Doster, EVP Dedicated and Warehouse Operations
