More Produce Info

At Direct Drive Logistics, we understand there’s no room for error when you’re shipping and handling produce, so our experienced team of freight brokers is dedicated to connecting you with the most trustworthy and dependable drivers on the road. We love the drivers in our network for their care and expertise with produce shipping, and we’re confident you’ll love them, too.

Hauling produce entails risks unlike other types of freight. Because fruits and vegetables are perishable, extra care is needed and time is of the essence. Produce is considered a high-risk commodity, and not every freight broker has the experience necessary to coordinate produce shipments. Direct Drive Logistics does. Full truckload (FTL) or less than truckload (LTL), long-haul or short-haul, we’ll get your produce to its destination safely.

Refrigerated Trucks for Produce Shipments

Being headquartered in the great state of Wisconsin we know the ins and outs of shipping produce in refrigerated trucks. From dairy products to fresh fruits and vegetables to frozen food, shipping produce in refrigerated trucks can be a tricky process. Our logistics consultants not only find you a suitable carrier from our verified network of owner-operators, but we also find you solutions. Our produce freight brokers are experts at getting your produce delivered within the necessary time frame that refrigerated freight requires and with over 99% of our deliveries going claim-free, we're confident we can find a refrigerated produce carrier at a great price.

Not every type of produce needs to be shipped in refrigerated trucks. In some scenarios root vegetables like potatoes, onions, and carrots will not require temperature-controlled shipping.

Freight Broker for Shipping Corn and Other Grains

Corn and other grains like wheat and flour are grains that are often shipped in intermodal containers. Intermodal containers are a great choice for grain because of the volume and distance it often travels. Our logistics consultants broker intermodal freight shipments and can organize the entire shipping process from picking up the grain in trucks and delivering to a railyard that then delivers it to a port to export the grain internationally. Our freight brokers handle getting your shipment through customs and offer 24/7 tracking so you always know where your shipment is.

As your partner in complete freight shipping solutions, Direct Drive Logistics provides the Over the Road trucking shipment services to get your freight moving.

Online Load Boards Are the Last Place to Look for a Driver for Your Produce

Finding a driver on an online produce load board may work if you’ve got a pile of rocks to move, but perishables require special care. Not only do you need a driver with a rig equipped with state-of-the-art refrigeration, but you need one with experience transporting perishables.

With online load boards, you just don’t have any way to vet the drivers. On top of that, you have to negotiate a rate with them, then make sure you’ve got insurance for your load. It’s a major hassle, and a major risk. Which is why you’re better off working with our 3PL specialists. We’ll get you lined up with proven, reliable driver at a reasonable price.

Direct Drive Logistics Only Contracts the Most Qualified Drivers

Direct Drive Logistics has a nationwide network of trucking companies and owner-operators we work with, and every one of them has been thoroughly vetted by our logistics professionals. We look at their driving record, verify insurance, verify their rig(s) meet all safety standards, check their minimum driver age and experience and, of course, make sure they have refrigeration that’s up for the job. It’s more due diligence than anyone could possibly do on their own. The payoff: an incredible 99.9% claim-free freight delivery record.
