Cincinnati — Total Quality Logistics (TQL) was named to Food Logistics Magazine’s list of the Top 100 3PL & Cold Storage Providers. TQL is a leading provider of transportation logistics services, with food and beverage shipments representing almost half of the 500,000 loads the company arranged last year. Food Logistics is a publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the food supply chain.
“The job our account executives do every day is vital to food producers, manufacturers, retail grocers, and ultimately the consumer. Virtually everything you use or consume at some point has traveled on a truck,” said Kerry Byrne, executive vice president of TQL.
TQL continues to improve its service to the food and beverage industry by investing in new technology and mobile applications that allow the company to find a truck or fill in on a difficult lane in a moment’s notice with a quality, respected carrier. Training of TQL account executives also is crucial to servicing customers in the food and beverage industry.
“Our account executives have the benefit of a first-class, rigorous training program. Customers work with one rep, from pickup to delivery, and that makes a huge difference when you are dealing with time-sensitive, temperature controlled shipments,” said Byrne.
TQL’s roots are in the produce industry, dating back to 1997. The company served primarily as a transportation provider to the produce industry before expanding its services to include refrigerated and dry commodities.
