Diamond Logistics Northwest was created to help improve the way fruit and produce is moved from Washington State to buyers across the country. It was clear to us that changes in trucking regulations were going to create challenges for everyone involved in the perishables supply chain. It was also easy to see how the system could be improved with a little innovation.
The State of Washington allows truck and trailer combinations to weigh more than 100,000 pounds within its borders. This can create opportunities to greatly improve the dwell times and efficiency of getting trucks loaded and back on the road. In many cases, a multi-faceted solution involving our local transportation and load consolidation services can offer considerable benefits to produce buyers.
