Fresh Del Monte Produce’s inland logistics arm has just shared its latest growth update, announcing a new website and branding for Tricont Trucking & Logistics. The company is seeking to bolster its customer base while enhancing the customer experience, especially as it sees continuous expansion over the last few years due to providing complete third-party logistics services.
“Fresh Del Monte has been relying on Tricont Trucking and Tricont Logistics for years, with great success, to move fresh produce on time and in full,” said Mohammad Abu-Ghazaleh, Fresh Del Monte’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “In today’s world where logistics and shipping disruptions abound, we’re looking forward to offering our solutions to more people, giving them access to our robust, reliable distribution and logistics network. Tricont’s inland services complement our third-party ocean freight services provided by Network Shipping. Both serve as an example of our commitment toward asset optimization.”
Tricont provides intermodal, warehousing, managed services, and business analytics, as well as refrigerated and ambient LTL distribution, last-mile delivery, and a dedicated contract carriage. The logistics ace serves North America with more than 30 distribution centers, almost 200 tractors, more than 10,000 reefer containers, and nearly 2,000 chassis—boasting a 95 percent on-time delivery rate.
As a press release outlined, Tricont is an expert in urgent and complex supply chains in a cold chain environment across North America, which stems from years of handling Fresh Del Monte’s produce, combined with its vast network and technology-driven solutions offering customers a trusted logistics partner. In addition to Fresh Del Monte, Tricont has been offering an increased amount of its cutting-edge services to others in need of varied logistics solutions.
Fresh Del Monte’s vegetable arm Mann Packing also recently began to leverage Tricont’s services as it expanded to the East Coast of the United States.
“This is an exciting time for our business. As the logistics industry expands, we want to grow with it and become a logistics powerhouse in our own rite. We are now in a better position to achieve this with the new website and brand, as customers and drivers can more readily find information on our website,” said Rob Savage, President of Tricont Trucking and Tricont Logistics.
