It is no secret that shipping in the supply chain is in crisis right now, but how does that impact the lives of everyday consumers and businesses this upcoming holiday season? 

“The freight transportation market is under an enormous amount of pressure, with continued high demand due to elevated consumer spending and capacity still being extremely constrained, it is pushing prices higher and higher. We see strong demand in almost every vertical we serve and are doing our best to meet our customers’ needs. 

With the holiday season upon us, we don’t see volume slowing down anytime soon, and many experts are saying that this market will continue through the end of 2022. We are counseling our customers to provide as much lead time as possible and requesting flexibility on loading/unloading hours to increase our opportunities to secure trucks and get their freight delivered,” Hayley Dobson, Group Vice President, Trinity Logistics – A Burris Logistics Company.

Receiving products promptly for holiday meals, gifts, and everyday consumption is of the utmost importance to Burris Logistics as a trusted end-to-end supply chain partner. Check out some of the ways we are continuing to MAKE IT HAPPEN throughout this shipping crisis. 

DEPENDABILITY AND EXPERTISE 

The logistics behind our supply chain distribution provide our partners with visibility and control; they utilize this complete transparency to hold us accountable for execution with expertise, safety, and efficiency. During a time of high intensity in the shipping world, our partners must have a reliable end-to-end supply chain partner they can trust to keep their products on track with the aspects they can control of the supply chain.

One tool we use to highlight our dependability is our Burris Supply Chain Portal (BSCP), which fully integrates with our partners. Hence, they receive the most time-efficient and accurate updates of their product’s integrity, storage, and transportation.

Burris Logistics is over 96 years old, so we have seen various supply chain challenges. Our Team continues to face challenges and develop solutions and services that further serve our partner’s needs beyond just storage and transportation of their products. 

As a dedicated and experienced partner, we can provide our partners with logistics technology, temperature-controlled warehousing, backhaul capability with a dedicated fleet, procurement, specialized packaging, parcel shipping rate pricing, dry ice handling, and much more.  

TRANSPORTATION

“Through freight partnerships, we move loads at as fast of a pace as the ports can handle. As a warehousing partner, these loads are met by a team of warehousing professionals that ensure timely unloading to maximize driver hours.” Nick Falk, SVP of Business Development, Burris Logistics.

During the holiday season and through the pandemic, our dedicated fleet felt the demand for increased load counts coupled with increased backhauls. They met the new demands while also adhering to particular safety protocols and maintaining their timeliness. 

At Burris Logistics, we not only have our dedicated fleet that serves the entire east coast, mid-west, and venturing into additional locations, but we also are grateful to have Trinity Logistics that provides different modes of transportation to ensure timely delivery of products. Trinity Logistics allows us to include intermodal, expedited, international, and LTL shipping methods.

As a partner with a vertically integrated supply chain, we can support port operations, offering transportation solutions and homes for the goods stored in the containers.

Frozen Food Trends

Over the last few years, the frozen and refrigerated food industry has seen massive increases in consumers purchasing frozen food online and in-store. Throughout the pandemic and the ever-growing popularity of time-sensitive meal prep and healthier food options, we have also seen not only an increase of products in our temperature-controlled warehouses but also a growing amount of e-commerce partners.

An article posted by Deloitte Insights, called Fresh vs. Frozen: The future of fresh in a changing competitive landscape, states, “Frozen food sales were up 21% in 2020; basically double the growth of fresh food sales in that same period. Within frozen, the closest equivalents to fresh food (namely, a combined group of frozen meat, poultry, seafood, fruit, and vegetables) grew even faster, and so far in 2021, frozen growth continues to outpace fresh,” Deloitte.

The demand for an expert level and reliable end-to-end supply chain partner is at an all-time high to ensure the safe storage and transportation of sensitive products such as fresh meats, frozen organic meals, ice cream, and more. We take pride that our partners expect and receive safe handling up to the final delivery of their products. 

“Our E-commerce partners are not immune to supply chain challenges such as port congestion. With many e-commerce brands, their differentiator is quality products sourced from international producers, thus making them susceptible to global shipping trends. Burris Logistics helps our E-commerce partners serve their customers by avoiding potential issues with advanced procurement, proper food storage, and rapid distribution capability via parcel shipping,” Michael Pitcher, Senior Account Executive, Burris Logistics.

Frozen Foods Waste Reduction

Freezing foods keep food at its peak of freshness, decreases unused recipes’ waste, and helps save less attractive produce products.

Our e-commerce partners and frozen food partners ship various organic and high-quality products through parcel transportation. Our logistics technology allows them to have complete visibility and control over their supply chain experience. In addition, our Burris Supply Chain Portal (BSCP) expands our capabilities even more for our partners and increases real-time access and tracking for our partners that utilize this unique feature. 

Why has there been an increase in frozen food over the last couple of years? Freezing foods keep food at its peak of freshness, decreases unused recipes’ waste, and helps save less attractive produce products. So, our e-commerce friends and frozen food friends have increased the nutritional value of their products, created more variety to meet consumer demand, and more.

Affi recently came out with an article called New Study Pinpoints Frozen Food Gain to Three P’s, and states, “40% of food goes to waste every year in America. Frozen food generates 47% less food waste than non-frozen food,” AFFI.

In return, these trends and parcel shipping reduces the amount of waste seen with typical refrigerated food products by increasing the longevity of frozen food, decreasing perishability, shipping right to the home of consumers, and fewer trips are made.

“Nothing matches the lifespan of frozen foods, and with that longevity comes the subsequent benefit of reduced food waste,” said AFFI President and CEO Alison Bodor.

As a company, we are proud to reduce food waste and assist our partners in reaching a maximum number of consumers with reliable service and delivery solutions for the east and west coasts. A large part of this is due to our geographic footprint, which our transportation methods offer better economical solutions for them as well.

At Burris Logistics, we are proud to offer an easier workflow to our partners, and that allows them to manage their entire supply chain from one portal.

“The value of our BSCP to our supply chain partners is to have all parties in the chain with the same information, at the same time, so that they can work together more efficiently to deliver the right products, to the right people, at the right time,” Jeffery Inns, Product Manager. 

By building our own Supply Chain Portal, we can include the aspects we know our partners need to ensure a safe, efficient, and transparent third-party logistics (3pl) experience. A lot of our partners express the need for planning information, purchasing assistance, and more. 

Some of the top features we use on our BSCP include the Demand Planning Feature, the Purchase Order Management feature, and Distribution Center (DC) Appointment Management Features. These features allow us to streamline the process of getting our partner’s top-quality products from food producers to food distribution centers.
