USCS strictly qualifies these shared carriers. Only reputable carriers with certified insurance and proper authority deliver orders. Our transportation team continuously monitors all phases of shipment so it gets there cost-effectively and on time.

USCS offers one of the largest, most flexible, reliable consolidation programs in the Public Refrigerated Warehouse (PRW) industry. We’ll find the most cost effective network for outside storage and distribution based on where you manufacture and the customer locations you need to deliver too.

By building smarter, more efficient pools, we can pass the cost savings to our customers.

DISTRIBUTION NETWORK OPTIMIZATION

The result: recommendations for the best logistics network in terms of cost efficiency and product movement.
This model produces results. Its helps customers strategically locate Distribution Centers, reduce the number of warehouses used, reduce transportation costs and optimize order flow. It’s also projected customer cost savings within USCS freight consolidation programs.
