Frios, a gourmet ice pops company with more than 30 store locations nationwide, struggled to distribute its temperature-sensitive products.
Shipping large amounts of pops via temperature-sensitive parcel frequently resulted in late and missed deliveries, and losses due to melting pops.
Seeking a different supply chain strategy, Frios and Averitt Express developed an LTL distribution program that utilizes temperature-controlled LTL units. The new process led to improved lead times, a drastic reduction in losses and environmental waste, and cuts to the company's overall transportation spend.
