Western Growers / C. H. Robinson Transportation Program
In an effort to help solve the transportation challenges that occur with shipping produce, the NOA is pleased to offer this program to their active members.
Be teaming up with Western Growers and C.H. Robinson Transportation, this FREE program is designed to combine shipper tonnage to leverage transportation rates, equipment supply, and service - without volume commitments!
Transportation Program Summary:
For more information or immediate use, contact John Stenderup at (866) 771-1270 or at John.Stenderup@chrobinson.com.
This program is available to grower/shipper, shipper, broker, and supplier members of participating trade associations and has moved over 150,000 loads since its inception in 2006. It was developed in response to concerns by the Western Growers Association Board of Directors regarding transportation costs, equipment supply, and service quality. The success of the program in resolving these issues for Western Growers shippers led to licensing of the Program to other produce and nursery trade associations throughout the U.S. Present licensees include the major associations in California, Idaho, Texas, Florida, Oregon and Georgia. The Transportation Program is operated on behalf of the participating trade associations by C. H. Robinson Worldwide (CHRW), a leading international 3rd party logistics company.
