Cold Chain – Fresh Produce

Field to Shelf: Total Cold Chain Solutions as Fresh as Your Produce

Getting food from tree to table in time for dinner is no easy feat. Crowley Logistics supports your operation with advanced equipment, processes and expertise. Our mission is to ensure you have a successful harvest by getting your cargo to market fast and fresh. 

We help you eliminate or anticipate potential delays

The importation of perishable commodities, such as fresh produce, requires an intricate choreography among your logistics provider, customs and U.S.D.A. officials, fumigators and of course, your farm or processing facility.  As an extension of your supply chain, we work around the clock, 24/7, to meet the requirements of the demanding produce industry.

We keep you in control from farm to market

Our on-call, dedicated refrigerated (reefer) customer service experts are at your disposal.

We can provide better communication and accountability because of our single-source approach. 

You know your crop; we know how to ship it

We are the best choice to speed your perishables to market and the most experienced with all types of produce including asparagus, berries, snow peas, sugar snap peas, bell peppers, tomatoes, packaged lettuce and more.
