Food Logistics, the only publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global cold food supply chain, named Quality Custom Distribution (QCD), a Golden State Foods company, as one of the winners of the 2022 Top 3PL & Cold Storage Providers award, which recognizes leading third-party logistics and cold storage providers in the cold food and beverage industry.
“These past 18 months have been so challenging for U.S. supply chains,” said Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “It’s the continuous bottlenecks that require fleets to re-tool and pivot accordingly. But, it’s the drivers, the fleet, the warehouses and software/technologies that really keep today’s supply chains in line.”
Food Logistics reaches more than 26,000 supply chain executives in the global food and beverage industries, including executives in the food sector (growers, producers, manufacturers, wholesalers, and grocers) and the logistics section (transportation, warehousing, distribution, software, and technology) who share a mutual interest in the operations and business aspects of the global cold food supply chain. Recipients of this year’s award will be profiled in the magazine’s July/August 2022 print issue, as well as online at FoodLogistics.com.
“These 3PLs and cold storage providers have collaborated on all facets of their operations to achieve full visibility, complete forecasting, end-to-end leverage and the ultimate in sustainability,” added Mariana. “Now is the time to honor and celebrate those companies making magic happen behind the frontlines.”
