Launched in 2006, the Western Growers Transportation Program has made strides in offering a full array of turnkey supply chain solutions for its member shippers. With the growth of the logistics industry, the program and partnership with C.H. Robinson continues to strengthen.
The Program offers WG 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. Additionally, the C.H. Robinson account managers will improve efficiencies and manage spend and risk.
As part of their effort to keep consumers and the ag industry updated on the highly complex and constantly changing supply chain, C.H. Robinson recently participated in an interview for a story in Chicago Magazine. The “How to Get 3,000 Pounds of Beef Jerky from Reno to Seattle” story highlights the history and growth of the logistics industry within the Chicago area, and will provide grower-shippers from all regions throughout the nation key insight on what is needed to keep up with the fast paced nature of the supply chain.
