Since the beginning of FreightCenter in 1998, Brosious has been an active and influential member within the food logistics industry. Brosious founded FreightCenter on the idea of providing a service that was lacking, and to this day continues to provide services and freight shipping solutions that supplement where other leaders have fallen short.
By working hand in hand and understanding a company’s food and beverage logistical needs, Brosious has had the direct pleasure of helping to optimize their supply chains and allow them to save money by tailoring a shipping solution for them. Some companies are better suited by shipping in bulk and using a full truckload rather than having to ship many smaller loads. While other companies find it more suitable to ship smaller, more frequent loads, through less-than-truckload, so as to not waste any product. It’s all about finding the right rhythm for you.
With food and beverage logistics, there is always a high demand for proper and attentive service, as this type of shipment is rather high maintenance – often on deadlines and requiring temperature sensitive truck beds. Yet, no shipment is too complex for FreightCenter. We’ve collaborated with over 100 carriers, offering an array of accessorials and services that can best suit your needs. If there’s a certain service you need that one carrier doesn’t provide, we’re positive we have a laundry list of other carriers that do provide the solution for you!
FreightCenter understands that in such a complex industry, there is no time for supply chain disruptions. The food and beverage industry demands constant, fresh, ingredients – and to do so, one must be “on top of the ball”. Here at FreightCenter, we have entire teams dedicated and available to assist you with your businesses food and beverage needs – no matter how small or large they may be.
Brosious has utilized his non-conformist and innovative mindset to set himself apart from the competition. By offering one of a kind solutions that can provide the most cost effective and suitable supply chain specific to your needs. By setting this same standard for all FreightCenter, we’re all hands-on deck. We are always willing to go the extra mile to provide the best service possible to our customers.
