Nationwide Refrigerated Transportation Services

Hanson Transportation Management Services provide cost-effective, service-oriented solutions for dry and refrigerated moves. Today’s transportation landscape is challenging and complex, and is becoming more so with increasing legislation, fuel and driver uncertainty and the increasing need for sophisticated transportation technology. These high costs of entry make it nearly impossible for mid-tier shippers to utilize transportation effectively; to have the in-house expertise to respond to market disruptions, or to accurately know the true cost per case.

There are many financial arguments regarding outsourcing vs. in-house management, the fact is that most shippers are too busy responding to shipping demands and exceptions to truly ‘manage’ their transportation spend. Hanson Transportation Management focuses, day in and day out, on executing the best decisions based on service and cost.

Because we have the technology, people and fleet, we can tailor a transportation solution to your specific requirements. By utilizing both asset and non-asset transportation, we offer greater flexibility, faster response to your changing demands and improved efficiency across multiple lanes. Unlike brokers, we provide you with the important ‘safety net’ of a company-owned refrigerated fleet.

Our logistics planners will work closely with you in developing the best transportation strategy:

  • Nationally dedicated, LTL and truckload freight
  • Scheduled LTL and consolidated moves
  • Multi model options
  • Utilizing your dedicated or private fleet
  • Gaining control over inbound
  • Improving ratios through continuous moves and merge-in-transit
  • Implementing freight consolidation scenarios
  • Reducing the costs and administration associated with carrier sourcing, qualification, management and payment
  • Benchmarking performance for continuous improvement
  • ‘Safety net’ of a company-owned fleet

  • We believe Hanson supports the same ideas we support: customer service, friendliness, and cost are as important to them as they are to us. We feel Hanson will grow as we grow.

    Thomas J. Navarre
    Vice President Petroleum Marketing & Logistics Family Express Corporation
  • Everyone we come across, customers, potential customers, carriers, they love our location; can’t believe that no one ever located in that northwest Indiana corridor. And as Chicago grows and traffic and congestion grow, our decision looks better and better.

    Andrew Janson
    President Hanson Logistics
  • Hanson has much greater access to carrier capacity and can give us better visibility across the supply chain. Day-to-day, they interface with our customer service to build optimum loads, while managing both inbound and outbound.
