The Western Growers Transportation Program (WGTP) is an exclusive benefit for our Western Growers members. Through C.H. Robinson, this personalized program meets the needs of the most challenging supply chains, providing high quality service coupled with the latest logistical technology to optimize distribution patterns and lower delivered costs.
WG is thrilled to welcome Lauren Singh back to the WGTP. She previously oversaw the WGTP and Monterey Commercial Transportation team, and in her new role of WGTP / CHR Transportation Director, Lauren will now oversee the strategy, account management and execution of WGTP. Her team specializes in complex produce supply chains and aims to provide an industry-leading experience for all Western Growers members.
Lauren’s background began in farming, growing up on her family’s dairy farm in Moss Landing, Calif. and spending summers helping with the animals and daily chores. Lauren started at C.H. Robinson in 2009 as an intern while finishing her degree in agri-business at CSU Monterey Bay. In her previous time at WGTP, she graduated from the Key Account Sales Program as well as the Leadership Networking Circle. In 2019, she transitioned to Robinson Fresh selling into Trader Joe’s warehouse and distribution network.
Her hobbies include traveling, spending time with family and friends, and keeping up with the many household projects she likes to get herself into.
For over a decade, the WGTP has offered turnkey supply chain solutions to its member shippers. These best-in-class services include truckload, LTL, intermodal, refrigerated warehousing and forward distribution. Shippers receive access to national surge capacity, guaranteed customized pricing options, transportation performance analytics and individual account management.
