The peak of what's considered produce season is upon us, and that means produce shipping operations are at their busiest to ensure these goods get on store shelves in the best possible condition. On this edition of InTek Freight & Logistics: The Podcast, we welcome someone who has extensive experience moving fresh fruits and vegetables for a major food solutions provider - David Frizzell, Vice President of Transportation and Logistics for SpartanNash.
David tells us what goes into produce shipping, including the unique challenges of crops being ready in different areas at different times, the need for speed, temperature-controlled options and whether intermodal is an option for produce. He also takes us through what the market looks like this year compared to the pandemic years, and before. And he peels back the secrets behind bananas.
