Shenandoah Growers Inc is redefining how to grow and deliver fresh organic sustainable produce. The producer of fresh, certified organic herbs for retail announces the launch of Shenandoah Growers Logistics, a refrigerated LTL transportation service that provides affordable shipments coast to coast.

“Today’s transportation and logistics industry is more challenging than ever. At Shenandoah Growers, we saw an opportunity to leverage our existing fleet capacity and create a new, best-in-class service offering that delivers reliable and affordable shipments, at any temperature,” said Jeffrey Saunders, vice president of national logistics at Shenandoah Growers. “Customers can rest easy knowing their shipments—no matter the size—will arrive where they need to be, on time and in good condition.”

The expanded fleet—encompassing 90 vehicles and more than 100 drivers—will enhance Shenandoah Growers’ national hub and spoke transportation system. The company’s investment in multi-temperature equipment will increase its efficiency with fewer dispatches and ensure products are transported at the correct temperature.

“With distribution to hundreds of retail supermarket distribution facilities and retailers nationwide, our current footprint gives us the size and scale to offer transportation customers a cost-effective alternative for LTL shipments,” said Saunders. “With our expertise, we’re able to better address a critical void in the market.”

Shenandoah Growers Logistics currently serves customers nationwide, with plans to expand cross-dock operations in the Southeast and Northwest regions in 2019 and double its fleet by 2020.

With over 30 years of experience, Shenandoah Growers provides sustainable, USDA organic, regionally grown products to retailers coast-to-coast. The Rockingham VA-based company pioneered the world’s largest indoor organic bioponic growing system and continues to redefine how to bring organic, sustainable, produce to market—operating across a nationally integrated platform of farms, production facilities and logistics in 11 states.
