Hanson adds Exclusive
to Velocities MVC program

Hanson Logistics, a provider of temperature-controlled logistics, is expanding the company’s Velocities Multi-Vendor Consolidation (MVC) program to include Exclusive Refrigerated Service.
The new service assures processors their products will not be co-mingled with frozen products in the same trailer. By sharing trailers set specifically to hold temperatures between 34° to 38° F, refrigerated food shippers are assured a “protect from freeze” environment while still receiving on-time delivery. The company’s Velocities MVC has the critical mass to build consolidated truckload shipments among multiple vendors for collaborative distribution through the United States.
“Our emphasis on food quality and safety extends from our warehouses out to final delivery,” said Andrew Janson, president of Hanson Logistics. “The volume, process, and assets are in place for refrigerated food shippers to achieve the same cost benefits as shippers in a frozen consolidation program.”
Velocities MVC is a temperature-controlled distribution program that leverages Hanson Transportation Management Services and the strategic location of the Chicago Consolidation Center in Hobart IN. The collaborative system offers cost-effective distribution reaching national retailers and foodservice distribution centers with highest Must-Arrive-by-Date (MABD) metrics.
“Exclusive Refrigerated Service eliminates the uncertainty faced by refrigerated food shippers that pool in bulk-headed frozen freight consolidation,” Janson said.
One of the largest privately held refrigerated warehouse networks in the United States, Hanson Logistics has eight facilities totaling 37 million cubic feet of deep frozen, refrigerated, and dry warehousing space.
