Industries We Serve

Delivering Strategic Solutions to Countless Industries.

Here Is A Small Sampling.

 

Food and Beverage

Choosing the right transportation provider is vital, when transporting food and beverage products, due to their various complexities, restrictions and requirements.

Our experienced staff has access to an extensive nationwide network of warehouses and carriers, along with the expertise to care for your product. For example, many food products require inspection reports for all outbound trailers. All food-grade trailers must be clean, odorless, have no damage, and have high security bolt seals placed prior to departure from the warehouse. Warehouses too must be top food grade quality.

Temperature sensitive food requires special care and refrigerated equipment to maintain specific temperatures during transit, including temperature recorders that are monitored daily.
Wine requires multi-modal options including railcar consolidation, committed insulated capacity, damage prevention, and strategic relationships with the Napa Valley warehouse network.

Wine & spirits to tomato sauce, frozen food to canned goods, gum & candies to butter…we deliver on the logistical requirements of cleanliness, safety, product visibility, on-time delivery and execution when it comes to moving our nation’s supply of food and beverage products.

Appliances and Electronics

If your product is of high touch nature requiring extra care, look no further than Cornerstone to provide you with peace of mind.  Lean on our experienced staff to assist with direct fulfillment/vendor direct shipments, MABDs (must arrive by dates) and RDDs (requested delivery dates).  We know how extremely important it is to have your product in stock at the store when families are shopping to replace their appliance.  Let our average 98% on-time performance bring value to your supply chain.

Agriculture

Due to the extensive number of fully vetted carriers in our network, we are able to provide capacity for any shipper and any location. This becomes extremely important due to seasonality, as we have the ability to flex up and/or down due to the sheer numbers of carriers in our network.

At Cornerstone we also provide warehousing options allowing you to stage product until the export booking is secured. Our specialists understand the challenges of export shipments and requirements specific to getting chassis and containers. We obtain data to support your export booking and meet vessel cutoff. We work with your freight forwarder to ensure all information flows at a timely manner and provide specialized reporting to support each milestone.

On the import side, our knowledge at all North American ports provide day-to-day insight on terminal operations. Our vast network of dray carriers provide transportation and tracking/tracing based on your specifications. We provide recovery and expedited services for our importers.
As a premier transportation provider of cotton, and many other agricultural commodities, we specialize in supply chain flexibility, capacity coverage, multi-modal options, import/export complexities and the nature of seasonality

Retail

At Cornerstone, we excel in providing flexibility for your supply chain and speed-to-market requirements. That includes disaster recovery transportation and expedited services to support last minute promotions, out of stock items and seasonal needs. Our coverage and access to an extensive nationwide network of carriers enables us to make sure your product gets to market on time and intact. We stay in constant communication monitoring your freight and advising ETA’s.

We are the link in your supply chain handling domestic transportation needs such as port and railroad drayage, the domestic leg of U.S. imports and exports, warehousing, transloading, domestic van and much more. With multi-modal options we remain mode neutral, tailoring our logistics solutions to your needs.

Special requirements? No problem. For example, many temperature sensitive retail items require refrigerated containers and are transported to a port for export. We coordinate equipment, monitor temps daily, and ensure the product arrives in time for vessel departure.

Tactical supply chain execution is vital to retail, and Cornerstone delivers.
