Tricont Logistics expands third-party services

Oct. 2, 2023
Fresh Del Monte’s transportation and logistics operation reports 200% growth over the last three years, prompting the launch of new branding and an enhanced website.

Tricont Trucking & Logistics, the inland logistics arm of Fresh Del Monte Produce, recently revealed a new website and branding intended to enhance its customer experience and broaden its customer base in response to recent expansion of its third-party logistics services.

With more than two decades of experience handling Fresh Del Monte’s produce, Tricont specializes in managing “urgent and complex supply chains” in cold chain environments across North America utilizing an extensive network and technology-driven solutions, the company reported. While Tricont’s biggest customer is Del Monte, the company has been offering more of its services to other shippers in need of varied logistics solutions.

“Fresh Del Monte has been relying on Tricont Trucking and Tricont Logistics for years, with great success, to move fresh produce on time and in full,” Mohammad Abu-Ghazaleh, Del Monte chairman and CEO, said in a news release. “In today’s world where logistics and shipping disruptions abound, we’re looking forward to offering our solutions to more people, giving them access to our robust, reliable distribution and logistics network.

“Tricont’s inland services complement our third-party ocean freight services provided by Network Shipping. Both serve as an example of our commitment toward asset optimization.”

With 70% of all goods in the U.S. moved by trucks, equal to more than $800 in economic value, and the consumer shift to ecommerce, the trucking and logistics industry is poised to thrive. Over the next five years the long-haul transport market is expected to grow by more than 4%.

Tricont provides intermodal, warehousing, managed services, and business analytics, as well as refrigerated and ambient LTL distribution, last-mile delivery, and a dedicated contract carriage. The company serves North America with more than 30 distribution centers, almost 200 tractors, more than 10,000 reefer containers, and nearly 2,000 chassis—with a 95% on-time delivery rate.

“This is an exciting time for our business,” said Rob Savage, president of Tricont Trucking and Tricont Logistics. “As the logistics industry expands, we want to grow with it and become a logistics powerhouse in our own rite.

“We are now in a better position to achieve this with the new website and brand, as customers and drivers can more readily find information on our website.”
