Over 3.5 million trips made

US: Southeastern produce grower completes first year of RPC-partnership

Flavor 1st, a grower and packer of fresh produce in the Southeast, recently completed its first year of partnership with Polymer Logistics for the supply and management of reusable transport packaging solutions across all its operations. Polymer Logistics RPCs made over 3.5 million trips carrying 31 different produce varieties from farming operations in six southeastern states and serving customers across the eastern half of the US, with a flawless 100% service level.

“We could not be more pleased with our decision to work with Polymer Logistics,” said Jim Zuber, CFO of Flavor 1st. “The complexity of our product line, the scope of our operations, and our rapid growth required that we align with an RPC supply chain partner that gets it right, every time, at a competitive price. Polymer Logistics stepped up to the plate and hit it out of the park.”

Polymer Logistics reusable transport packaging, including both black and wood grain RPCs, is uniquely designed for superior product protection, stacking strength and stability, optimal air flow, and operational efficiency. “A partnership with Polymer Logistics goes beyond the structural advantages of our crates,” said Fred Heptinstall, CEO of Polymer Logistics North America. “We collaborated closely with Flavor 1st to understand their specific operational requirements and develop a customized, end-to-end supply chain and asset management solution that ensured a continuous loop of clean, fresh, ready-to-use RPCs. The Flavor 1st passion for growing and delivering high-quality produce, excellent year-round customer service, operational excellence, and innovation aligns perfectly with our core competencies and values. We look forward to working together for many more years to come.”

Polymer Logistics helps growers and retail customers strengthen their total produce supply chain through innovative design, sustainable and efficient operations, unsurpassed quality and freshness, enhanced shopper experience, and asset management systems. The result is increased shopper satisfaction and profitable growth. With five state-of-the-art service centers across North America, Polymer Logistics consistently delivers outstanding product quality and customer service.
