When you’re in the food and beverage industry, you have to look at how you’re realistically going to get products to your customers. Fast shipments allow you to meet deadlines imposed by clients. Affordable shipments allow you to focus on turning a profit. To ensure that you balance both of these demands, you must look closely at your food and beverage logistics.


At Royal Transportation Services, we offer supply chain and logistics management to assist you in all of your deliveries.

Logistics in the Food and Beverage Industry

It’s important to understand the various trends within the food and beverage industry, too. Traditional distribution channels have changed in order to impact how people want to eat in different ways.


On-demand food solutions, including food trucks and deliveries, are becoming commonplace. You have to adjust your logistics in order to understand that you need to deliver fresher food to more types of companies. There are more online channels, too, which could require you to ship to more places.

Packaging formats may change, too. People are sourcing from different places. They want snacks inside of full meals, and so on. This means that your clients may want smaller pallets more often in order to keep up with the demand while ensuring that they’re getting the freshest possible ingredients.


Although this may seem like a lot to take in, Royal Transportation Services are experts in food and beverage logistics. We’re here to help you every step of the way.


Modes of Transportation

There are a variety of transportation modes for you to use to get your products from your warehouse to the loading docks of your clients:

Obviously, some methods are more effective and useful than others. Truck and rail are common when you’re moving things across the country. Boat/Ocean freight is useful when you’re moving things overseas. While air can be used, it’s generally going to be cost-prohibitive based on the weight of your shipments.


Intermodal transportation is used in a number of deliveries, too. This would allow you to use two modes of transportation to ensure get things to where they need to go quickly, such as rail and truck or boat and truck. At Royal Transportation Services, we work with a global network of carriers to ensure the right transportation is chosen.

Additionally, we have refrigerated and temperature-controlled options to ensure nothing expires/melts/spoils during transportation.
