Western Growers Transportation Program

Looking for a turnkey logistics provider so you can focus on what you do best?

In 2007, at the direction of the Western Growers (WG) Board of Directors, WG strategically aligned with C.H. Robinson to establish a full array of turnkey supply chain solutions for its member shippers.

The Western Growers Transportation Program (WGTP) offers our members access to consultative account management, tailored pricing options, national surge capacity and business intelligence. All of these resources are provided without any fees or commitment of freight. The C.H. Robinson account managers will improve efficiencies, manage spend and risk.

The WGTP maintains the confidentiality of individual shipper data. Combining shipper freight volume enhances service levels, capacity, and influences rates.

This program was different because it is totally focused on the produce industry. The deal started out small, but they were willing to look at every opportunity and it wouldn’t have been successful without the team making such a big commitment.
