Eliminate Costly LTL with Velocities™ MVC — Multi-Vendor Consolidation Program
Velocities™ MVC is a win/win cold supply chain fulfillment program. Food manufacturers share truckload savings when shipping smaller, higher frequency orders; retailers receive scheduled, consolidated truckload deliveries consistent with their continuous fulfillment strategies. Velocities™ MVC enables food manufacturers to realize substantial savings in fuel, labor, equipment, and overhead, and reduce their carbon footprint. Velocities™ MVC is the core service of the Hanson Chicago Consolidation Center, our 14,500,000 cu. ft. temperature-controlled facility is located just east of Chicago at the crossroads of I-80/94 and I-65.
How does Velocities™ MVC work?
Hanson builds your refrigerated or frozen orders from inbound and forward inventory at the Hanson Chicago Consolidation Center, then combines your shipments with those in the same temperature zone from other vendors to create a more efficient truckload for scheduled delivery to the same retailer. Value added services, such as mixing and specific pallet configurations are available. Velocities™ improves your fulfillment strategy and streamlines your cold supply chain process while reducing or eliminating higher cost LTL shipments.
