Temperature-controlled transportation and storage are vital aspects of the food industry, particularly for frozen goods. Partnering with reliable cold chain logistics companies gives businesses peace of mind, ensuring that their products will maintain their quality and remain safe for consumption, all while reducing product losses through consistent and controlled handling conditions.
At Mulder Brothers Brokerage, one of our core competencies is the safe storage and transportation of finished frozen foods to provide optimal cold chain solutions. Read on to learn more about our services, the necessary logistics involved in transporting frozen products, and how we are uniquely equipped to support your business.
Mulder Brothers’ Frozen Storage and Shipping for Finished Frozen Goods
Mulder Brothers frequently completes less-than-truckload (LTL) deliveries to grocery stores, restaurants, and big-box retailers like Walmart. We also deliver directly to other businesses that incorporate food services, such as U.S. cold storage warehouses for transferring frozen inventory between facilities, schools, hospitals, prisons, trade shows, and food banks. Our company utilizes an extensive carrier network of vehicles that handle frozen shipments, allowing us to offer multiple scheduling options.
Our temperature-controlled trucks safely transport preassembled and -packaged frozen goods such as:
- Frozen dinners
- Frozen meats and seafood
- Frozen bread loaves, rolls, and more
- Frozen dairy products
- Frozen canisters of juice
The standard temperature range for frozen cargo is between 0° F and -10° F. To ensure that products stay in this range, we refrigerate them in cold packs, encase them in special packaging for remaining frozen or utilize reefer trucks with actively cooled trailers.
Regulatory compliance is always top of mind. We follow all applicable food safety regulations from the FDA and adhere to the Food Safety Modernization Act to ensure proper temperature monitoring, storage, and handling for safely transporting frozen goods.
Mulder Brothers aims to provide superior LTL logistical support for our customers in the frozen goods sector. To do so when setting up shipment routes, warehousing, and deliveries, our company:
- Partners with experienced transport companies well equipped to handle cold chain cargo
- Groups shipments that have similar destinations or retailers as well as temperature and humidity needs
- Focuses on efficiency when mapping out routes by geographic location
- Fills carrier trucks as close to capacity as possible and quickly handles any last-minute gaps
- Plans deliveries for times when loading docks are open
- Uses the correct sequence of pallet packing, loading, and unloading
- Keeps warehousing time to a minimum during transport
- Delivers on time
Our experts will maintain the integrity of your cold chain, enabling you to focus on production rather than complicated cold chain logistics.
