FRESH on the GO represents a leap forward in perishable goods distribution. To make the program a reality, McLane has invested more than $1 billion in a nationwide supply chain infrastructure that includes its custom cold chain system. This system addresses critical challenges associated with product freshness, food safety and proper temperature storage and transport throughout the delivery cycle.

McLane Cold Chain advantages include:

•20 automated distribution centers across the nation.

•More than 8 million square feet of warehouse space with more than 2.5 million combined square feet of refrigerated and frozen space.

•A fleet of 2,000 multi-temperature trailers.

•Custom cold chain systems, procedures, and documentation to ensure product integrity and safety in every part of the supply chain.

•A multi-step monitoring process that constantly measures, records, and validates temperatures on the loading dock, in the distribution center, in transit, and upon delivery.

•Third-party food safety endorsement of McLane’s entire cold chain system, procedures, and documentation process from Silliker Inc.

All FRESH on the GO orders arrive at McLane’s warehouse just before each regular delivery, ensuring optimum freshness and subsequent shelf life. Product selection consists of small case packs and/or single-sell items wherever practical. Retailers can select the items that best match customers’ preferences. McLane also offers a range of equipment systems, including cutting-edge "air-curtain" technology designed to promote impulse purchases.
