2005 – Modern Logistics Technology

Announcement Date: January 1, 2005

South Mill was one of the first mushroom farms in the country to install modern logistics technology in its over-the-road refrigerated transportation fleet. This allows “in-transit” data to be communicated in real-time. Important delivery data including, change of schedule, change of delivery locations and estimated times of arrival (ETA) can be communicated to the customer. With one of the largest geographic distribution footprints of any mushroom farm in North America, the goal of efficiently communicating on a 24/7 basis, with trucks travelling thru most every major city east of the Rockies, and in Canada, underscores the company’s commitment to customer service.
