About Us – Case Studies
How It’s Done.
We take the business of our customers very seriously. The more we know about a company’s business, the better we can provide cost-effective transportation solutions. When we begin an engagement with a customer, we first analyze and assess their current freight shipping procedures, identify challenges, formulate solutions and then put the Best plan into action. Tightening up the supply chain is the name of the game.
Pepsi Bottling Ventures (PBV), the nation’s largest privately-held manufacturer, seller, and distributor of Pepsi-Cola beverages, was in need of a cost-effective way to transport goods from its lower-cost production facilities in the Southeast to remote distribution centers in hard-to-service areas such as Long Island and Maryland’s Eastern Shore.
Through freight management, Best Logistics used its strong carrier relationships to ensure PBV received consistently premium service on some of the most difficult routes in the country. Our knowledge of the customer’s business, combined with our huge base of carriers, enabled us to cut operating costs, passing the savings on to PBV. Because their shipping volume fluctuates on a daily basis, we customized a transportation strategy specifically for PBV to allow for changes with little notice.
Best Distribution is an approved warehouse for Pepsi Bottling Ventures and assists them with overflow storage during peak seasons and cross docking services to accommodate scheduling needs. Best Cartage coordinates back-up support and drop trailers to PBV’s fleet when needed for regional moves in the Carolinas. Best Specialized has also been called on several times when PBV has needed to move larger, over-sized equipment.
Best Logistics Group is proud to have such a great business partnership with Pepsi Bottling Ventures. Over the last ten years, they have become like family to us. In 2012, PBV presented us with the 1st Annual Superior Carrier award for outstanding customer service.
