Hanson Logistics, St. Joseph, Mich., launched a new consumer e-commerce fulfillment program called Pick, Pack, and Parcel, which draws upon Hanson Logistics expertise in frozen food fulfillment.
Pick, Pack, and Parcel gives refrigerated and frozen food manufacturers an additional channel for selling meal kits and food products online, then shipping directly to consumer’s door. In the program, Hanson receives forward inventory via truckload to Hanson’s Logansport, Ind., deep frozen warehouse. Individual consumer orders are then picked and packed on demand in reusable shipping coolers before being handed off to a national parcel carrier. The Logansport facility is strategically located to reach 60% of the U.S. population with 1- to 3-day service.
