Cold Chain – Seasonal Products

Trust us for total cold chain solutions as fresh as the new season

Short windows and tight timeframes make getting your seasonal produce to market a special challenge—but one Crowley Logistics is always up for. We’re here to help you make your harvest a success.

We have equipment and experienced people at the ready

The importation of seasonal perishables and agricultural products cultivated during varying climatic production windows, requires an intricate choreography among your logistics provider, customs and U.S.D.A. officials, fumigators and of course, your farm or processing facility.

Your team at Crowley understands your urgency and has services and solutions to speed your seasonal produce to market.

Make our regional expertise your competitive advantage

Central America’s close proximity and strong economic ties to the United States have played a large role in growers there meeting the increasing consumer demand for year-round fresh fruits and vegetables, such as bananas, pineapples and other tropical fruits, melons, tomatoes, beans and berries, as well as preserved and frozen fruits and vegetables, flowers, plants and more.

When time is of the essence, we have the essential services

As an extension of your supply chain, we work around the clock, 24/7, to meet the requirements of the demanding produce industry. Our on-call, dedicated refrigerated (reefer) customer service experts are at your disposal, and provide better communication and accountability because of our single-source approach. We are the best choice to speed your perishables to market.
