Sweet Supply Chain: Delivering Love on Valentine’s Day

Burris Logistics wants to help to warm up your hearts and stomachs on Valentine’s Day. We know that food logistics may not be the most romantic topic in the world, but when you’re sitting around a table with loved ones, friends, or enjoying your own company, it is important to know where your Valentine’s treats come from.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the nation saw a rise in E-Commerce purchases and online grocery shopping. Cupid is not the only one delivering you love this season; your Direct-To-Consumer (D2C) friends are the ones dropping off boxes of love to your doorsteps now.

Even though sweets and flowers are the main items gifted this holiday, in-home dinners are rising this year. Burris Account Executive, Megan Caruso, discussed that one of our partners, Butcher Box, offers an excellent Surf and Turf package. Megan also stated that “for many of our other partners who are shipping things like cakes, cookies, or flowers…this is prime time for increased orders.” 

During these special occasions, the supply chain is relied upon to make sure food is on shelves, delivered to doorsteps, or transported to restaurants in a timely, efficient, and safe manner. Consumers benefit from the efficiencies and reliability of a secure food logistics provider. 

Valentine’s Day is known for being one of the most romantic days of the year, and for a lot of businesses, it can be their busiest. Burris Custom adapts to our partner’s unique supply chain needs, capable of scaling to increased demand. Trinity Logistics is the transportation background for many producers of popular items gifted during Valentine’s Day, like flowers, cupcakes, frozen cakes, or specialty meats. Honor Foods a redistributor, ensures that popular items remain available to foodservice distributors serving dine-in or take-out restaurants. Burris PRW Plus can store these fragile items in temperature-controlled warehousing to ensure they arrive in the best quality condition.

We are One Partner, Many Solutions, and as a 95-year old family business, we are committed to our partner’s success, as if it were our own. We #MakeItHappen, so you can say you #MadeItHappen this Valentine’s Day.
