The Sunny Delight Beverages Co has selected Transplace Inc for complete logistics management outsourcing in the United States. Transplace will manage and optimize all shipments from Sunny Delight plants to retail locations and mass merchandisers nationwide, and will contract and manage a core group of refrigerated carriers.
As part of the agreement, Transplace will have transportation management responsibility, including freight payment services, for all Sunny Delight prepaid truckload and less-than-truckload shipments and will provide services and technology to arrange loading at plants for customer pick-up shipments.
“We’re currently working to transition Sunny Delight’s supply chain operations from P&G into our network and expect to be fully operational in an outsourced capacity by early Q1 2005,” said Tom Sanderson, Transplace’s president and chief operating officer.
