Mountain View, Cal. , July 12, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cargo Chief, a tech-enabled third party logistics provider (3PL) that unlocks hidden transportation capacity by empowering trucking carriers and providing superior service to shippers, has been selected to the Food Logistics 2016 Top Green Providers List, published in the July issue of the publication.
By making loads available to their network of 500,000+ nationwide trucks, Cargo Chief can source any shipment using patented, proprietary aggregation and machine learning technology. Cargo Chief’s carrier search provides food and beverage shippers the best capacity options for their loads, instantly.
“Nearly 30 percent of trucks are running empty at some point in a trip, which is both a waste of fuel as well as capacity that can be made available to a shipper,” said Abtin Hamidi, Cargo Chief co-founder and executive vice president. “Cargo Chief works within our always-growing carrier network, using proprietary technology to find ‘hidden’ transportation capacity for our shipping customers across the country.”
The annual Food Logistics Top Green Provider list recognizes companies whose products, services, or exemplary leadership is enhancing sustainability within the food and beverage industry. The list offers logistics professionals a guide to the providers, manufacturers, and software and technology companies that have found new ways to promote sustainability throughout their operations and those of their customers.
Cargo Chief was founded in 2012 to find inefficiencies in the transportation process and solve shipping capacity problems for hundreds of customers on a daily basis, including multiple Fortune 100 food and beverage providers.
