Food Logistics recognizes Longship with a Top 3PL & Cold Storage Providers Award

LEXINGTON, Ky. — Food Logistics, a trade publication covering product movement through the global cold food supply chain, recognized Longship of Lexington with a Top 3PL & Cold Storage Providers Award.

“From driver shortages to natural disasters, the last 12 months have continued to challenge the 3PL space. But it’s the 3PLs and the cold storage providers that keep moving cold food product through the chain, despite the disruption,” says Marina Mayer, editor-in-chief of Food Logistics. “It’s these 3PLs and cold storage providers that work to adopt and adapt to operate in a safer, more efficient manner. That’s why it’s important we honor and celebrate the top 3PLs and cold storage providers, both nationally and internationally.”

Many of this year’s winners offer a variety of third-party logistics services, including air cargo, bulk/liquid bulk transportation, direct-store delivery, freight forwarding, refrigerated trucking, truckload brokerage and more. Many of the cold storage services offered range from blast freezing and cross docking to inventory management and warehousing/distribution management.

“It’s an honor to be recognized by Food Logistics as one of this year’s Top 3PL & Cold Storage Providers,” said Kenny Ray Schomp, president/CEO of Longship. “This award wouldn’t be possible without the hard work and dedication of our team, and our clients and carriers.”
