Some of the most commonly transported items in LTL and truckload shipping are consumer packaged goods, or CPGs. Revolution has become an industry expert in moving CPGs, and our trained staff is ready to handle special packaging, preferred carriers, delivery appointments, buyers, and distributors to successfully ship your CPGs.
CPGs are typically nonperishable items you might find in your grocery store. While these might include food, they also include items like detergents, paper products, and more. While these items are typically boxed or crated in bulk, each individual item is also wrapped or boxed for consumer use--think of a box of tissues or a spray bottle of cleaning solution. Some of the most common industries that produce CPGs are food and beverage, personal care, and home care.
The supply chain for CPGs follows the standard model for retail goods: products move through the supply chain from manufacturers to distributors to retailers to consumers. Often, CPGs are delivered to warehouses or distribution centers specifically designed to store and distribute these types of products. From there, they'll be sent to places like grocery stores or food retailers.
One of the challenges of shipping CPGs is ensuring that the products stay fresh and are not damaged in transit. Revolution takes pride in its best-in-class palletizing, wrapping and loading practices. Our trucks are packed with care, and our clients consistently note our attention to detail in the shipping process.
