Velocities MVC is the nation’s largest consolidation program, designed to reduce costly LTL shipments. Velocities MVC is a win/win program: food manufacturers are able to 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 16,500,000 cu. ft. temperature-controlled facility is located just east of Chicago at the crossroads of I-80/94 and I-65.
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 SKU mixing and special pallet configurations are available. Velocities improves your fulfillment strategy and streamlines your cold supply chain process while reducing or eliminating higher cost LTL transportation.
