Our food grade warehouse is rated superior by AIB
We strive for excellence in all of our warehouse services, but at ITS Logistics we have made a serious commitment to have impeccable food warehousing solutions and distribution for food grade quality storage. That’s why we’re proud to say that we excel at food warehousing and have been consistently awarded a superior rating by AIB International for more than a decade!
How we handle food grade logistics
Food products require special care and handling and we help you maintain that high standard across your entire supply chain. All organizations that process and store food and beverage products are required to register with the FDA and follow a variety of other requirements. We take great care to follow these regulations and ensure that our food grade warehouses are always exceptionally clean and well maintained to prevent any cross contamination.
We take great pride in the superior cleanliness of our warehouses. We have a frequent sanitation schedule and proactive pest control to keep our facilities at the highest standards that your food products require. Additionally, our warehouses have annual AIB inspections to be sure that we are continuously maintaining the optimal level of quality food storage conditions.
Our solutions for food storage include:
Warehousing and just-in-time delivery
- Depending on your products, you may not need all your materials at once. That’s why we offer just-in-time logistics specific to the food industry. Our goal is to increase the efficiency of your business and decrease waste.
- The need to be able to deliver products straight to your customers is becoming a necessity and food ecommerce is increasing in popularity. We have expertise in this area and currently work with several food ecommerce customers, including Nature’s Bakery. We understand the importance of fast shipping to your customers, as well as order accuracy, quality control, and excellent customer service. No matter what level of food ecommerce you’re looking for, our experienced team members and efficient technology solutions make us the perfect match.
- Selling your food grade products in big box stores like Costco, Walmart and other grocery stores is a big step for your brand and your supply chain. At ITS, we have expertise in shipping products to each of these stores and understand the most efficient way to fulfill these orders while following complex routing guides.
- Having a strong omnichannel presence is becoming increasingly important for businesses big and small. This means if you have a brick and mortar store, you need to offer options like buy online and pick up in store (BOPIS), purchase in store and ship to a different location, and of course online purchases sent directly to buyers’ homes. All of these options apply to food grade distribution as well, and we are prepared to help you excel in this area.
