The company provides freezer, cooler, and dry storage as well as a range of close-to-market meat fabrication and packaging services through its Farmers Produce division.
Cloverleaf also operates a fleet of short-haul refrigerated trucks that operate out of the Sioux City IA terminal.
The SmartEnterprise 2 suite includes the Enterprise Foundation, an integration layer; the RF Voice Foundation; WarehouseLogic logistics management software; the Active Desktop GUI-based single-point access and control module; the d'Amigo alert management and reporting tool, and the e-Vista web-based visibility tool. Cloverleaf has also implemented the EZConnect EDI-XML data translation and connectivity system for automated, 24/7 computer-to-computer information exchange with its customers.
