Introducing: Seed to Table Logistics

Introducing: Seed to Table Logistics

The following excerpt is from an article in The Packer, by Ashley Nickle:

Oakes Farms plans to launch its new transportation company, Seed to Table Logistics, in advance of the mid-December implementation date for the Electronic Logging Devices (ELD) mandate that presents some challenges for the produce industry.

Immokalee, Fla.-based Oakes Farms already had a logistics division with its own trucks, but now it is adding owner-operators as well.

The new company is scheduled to debut Dec. 1, and the staff is expected to grow from three people to 10-15 over the next six months.

Steve Veneziano, vice president of sales and operations for Oakes Farms, described how the change is designed to benefit customers.

“Instead of them using their own in-house logistics or outside brokers, we’re going to manage owner-operators and ensure we do what it takes to get on-time delivery to the customers,” Veneziano said, “because this industry will be interrupted pretty heavily with this ELD mandate coming into effect.”
