For Importers, Value-Added Services In-House Means Fewer Vendors and Less Handling
Produce arriving at the port in bulk typically needs to pass through several activities before it’s ready for your customers. Cold treatment, fumigation, regulatory inspections, grading, ripening, bagging, and more can add service providers and transportation needs. Each is one more thing to manage, something else cutting into your timeline, and another reduction in your profit.
Americold offers these value-added services and more in-house. Transportation miles become inches and feet within the cold storage facility. Multiple vendors become one solutions partner. And your freshness window extends considerably.
With more value-added services under one roof, you can drastically reduce the number of vendors you manage, touches on your produce, and transportation journeys needed. From port to store, we offer solutions to simplify your business administration and deliver your produce in better condition and greater value.
More Locations Where You Need Them
With produce-specific facilities on the West Coast, East Coast, and the Gulf Coast, and a national transportation program able to deliver to almost anywhere in the continental US in 1-2 days, Americold is ready to support your fruit and vegetable business and deliver value to you and your customers.
Check out one of our core produce facilities: Savannah I, GA
Savannah, GA - Our Savannah I produce site leads the way in establishing this southeastern port as a new produce gateway.
Part of our Savannah campus, Savannah I offers cold treatment continuation, fumigation, traditional grading, ripening, regulatory inspections, and repacking activities.
For produce arriving from South America, Savannah can offer produce availability several days sooner than ports further north, and if the final destination is in the South, transportation savings abound too.
Nationwide Transportation - LTL Rates and FTL Service
Americold operates a national consolidation program.
Scheduled truck service reliably connects with every major metropolitan market at least once a week. We’re already delivering to your customers.
Leveraging our volumes leads to additional transportation savings for you. We can take your larger volumes, incorporate them into our network, and offer you savings on your otherwise full truckload price. Alternatively, we can accommodate your smaller volumes within consolidations - you only pay for the space you use.
Combining your transportation needs with your inbound or outbound produce processing activities within the Americold cold storage warehouse network offers the simplified supply chain you need so you can focus more on your own customers’ requirements.
