Food & Beverage Logistics Services
Service That’s Always in Season
First Call started as the logistics arm of a produce company – that means we take our fruits, veggies, ice cream and seltzers seriously. As your logistics partner, we’re committed to consistently delivering products on time and in prime condition.
Make Rejected Shipments a Thing of the Past
With years of experience in moving perishable freight and real-time tracking software for full shipment visibility, we’ll make sure nothing goes to waste.
Refrigerated Food & Beverage
Our logistics experts have delivered refrigerated produce for industry partners since 2005. First Call’s network of cold chain resources will keep your perishable loads at ideal temperatures no matter the weather, traffic delays or freight requirements.
Frozen foods can be expensive to produce and distribute – be sure not to lose any freight due to poor communication or mishandling. Trust First Call to keep both full loads and LTL freight frozen, not freezer burned.
Just because a load isn’t chilled doesn’t mean it can be handled carelessly. We’ll ensure your dry food shipments are kept fresh, dry and free of any in-transit damage from pickup to drop-off.
