Sweet Takes Away Every Pain

by Michael Kotendzhi | Food & Drink

Not metaphorically but literally, who does not like to have a bit of sweet at the end of a meal or the end of a day?

Confectionery is considered one of the must-haves in daily life because it sweetens the day up no matter you have a good day or a bad day. Market Research records the largest chocolate confectionery retention in 2020, which does not sound so surprising considering the COVID-19 drags around most of the year.

It is a challenge to transport confectionery during the seasons under heat-sensitive seasons. As some of the big brand warehouses in Canada are mostly located in Ontario, it is a meticulous process to deliver goods to Vancouver, one of the biggest consumer markets on the West Coast. The factors lay heavily on the time, the cost, and the temperature. The range of required attention needs to be immense and well-tended and all processes demand temperature-controlled transportation.

In most cases, the required transportation can be differentiated by the load volume. It could be full truckload or less-than-truckload. The 3PL provider must be extremely flexible to handle the diverse condition it requires at different points. It often requires fulfillment or pool distribution to the destination of a distribution center.

Each customization is what 18 Wheels Logistics offers to our client maximum flexibility and unique demands. We offer a full range of temperature-controlled fleets that meet specifically the needs of your products. On top of that, 18 Wheels Logistics also provides the absolute best services in labeling, packaging (copacking), and warehousing. Call us today to see how our service can sweeten your day!
