Your Cold Chain Steward

Collaborating on Solutions

Why Burris?

There are many excellent third-party logistics (3PL) providers in the industry, including those who specialize in handling temperature-sensitive products such as fresh, perishable food. However, there is no margin for error in this space. Mistakes, delays, and lack of focus can result in food waste, diminished shelf life or more significantly, failed food safety regulations and potentially endangering consumers. Competency is critical when it comes to cold chain management. However, that’s only the starting point.

What makes Burris Logistics the provider of choice for so many national wholesalers and direct-to-consumer brands?


There are few organizations that can claim a century of successful operations and even fewer in the logistics industry. Since 1925, family-owned Burris Logistics has expanded and evolved (view timeline). From our “ice house” origins to today, national retailers and leading-edge, e-commerce startups turn to us of for end-to-end supply chain solutions. We’re one of the largest and most sophisticated controlled-temperature food distribution operations in the nation, and we continue to build upon our heritage of integrity, quality and dependability.


Our unique company culture is our competitive differentiator. Our team members are valued and respected by employers who recognized the important role our people have in ensuring food safety. The industries we serve, our customers, and their needs drive us. To be responsive, flexible and agile in service, we remain stable, committed and disciplined in our focus.
