Frozen Food Cross-Docking
See how our Frozen Food Cross-Docking partners benefited from a relationship with Unilogic and our supply chain solutions.
The Unilogic Solution:
Unilogic employs a shipping solution not commonly associated with the Midwest. At our warehouse we receive multiple refrigerated trucks from our frozen foods partners. Unilogic Group is able to consolidate these trucks by loading them heavy (over-weight) into refrigerated sea containers.
Unilogic has the ability to legally transport overweight containers onto the rail ramp on Illinois’ roadways.
As one of the first Chicago area full-service warehouses to offer this solution Unilogic can load refrigerated containers up to 55,000 lbs. and legally transport them to the rail ramps.
This solution, normally associated with port city warehouses, allows our partners to save thousands of dollars per year – essentially allowing them to ship 17,000 extra pounds per shipping container while maintaining the shipping cost on-line.
With the growing demand for next-day delivery services, which can often make or break customers’ order decision has driven Unilogic to become a niche market expert in providing contractually flexible and/or long term solutions that allow our partners to have their goods on hand and deliverable to their clients on-demand.
In effect, for every 5 containers shipped at the overweight limit of 55,000 lbs. our partner saves the equivalent of the shipping cost of 1 1/2 sea containers (roughly $3,000). Magnified over hundreds of containers shipped in a year this is an enormous cost savings.
