for distribution in Midwest
Jan 29, 2010 11:33 AM
Hanson Logistics, provider of temperature-controlled supply chain services, announced that Omaha Steaks is now using Hanson for distribution of inventory to support 21 of its retail stores in the greater Midwest market.
Hanson manages inventory, order mixing, and direct store delivery to Omaha Steaks’ Midwest network of retail outlets. Omaha Steaks is one in a growing number of brands using the Hanson Chicago Consolidation Center, home to the Hanson Velocities Multi-Vendor Consolidation (MVC) program.
Situated near the Interstate 80/94 and I-65 exchange in Hobart IN, the three-year-old facility takes advantage of the relatively congestion-free east side of Chicago and is strategically located for efficiently replenishing top retail and foodservice companies. In Velocities MVC, Hanson operates a scheduled distribution system, picking orders from cross-docked and forward inventory, then consolidating LTL shipments into a collaborative, multi-vendor truckload.
Food manufacturers benefit from a shared truckload rate and a scheduled delivery; retailers and foodservice consignees reduce dock congestion and stock-outs. Transportation service also includes inbound shuttles from food manufacturers, national truckload service, and Chicago-area deliveries.
Omaha Steaks is an Omaha NE-based, fifth-generation, family-owned company that markets and distributes a variety of grain-fed beef and other gourmet foods. Call 1-800-960-8400 or access www.OmahaSteaks.com for more details.
Headquartered in St Joseph MI, Hanson is the 16th-largest refrigerated warehouse network in the nation, with nine facilities totaling 38,000,000 cubic feet of deep frozen, refrigerated, and dry warehousing space. For more information, call 269-982-1390 or visit www.hansonlogistics.com.
