Edge Logistics named Niagara Bottling 2021 Raw Material Carrier of the Year

Edge Logistics has been able to leverage experience and technology to secure a distinct honor from Niagara Bottling: the 2021 Raw Material Carrier of the Year. Using the proprietary functions within the Edge CAPACITY app, Niagara has successfully used Edge Logistics to move its raw material needs, including bottle caps, preforms, resin, labels, and shrink films. However, this award highlights a much more important fact: Edge Logistics has a remarkably high success rate with optimum visibility in transportation. Let’s take a closer look.

A Bit of Background:  Niagara Bottling Has Extensive Carrier Requirements

Niagara Bottling is well-known for its top-notch requirements among partner carriers, and while big names have gathered attention in the past as top Niagara Bottling Carriers, this recognition is an entirely new ball game for Edge Logistics. Niagara requires carriers to adhere to a strict list of standards, Niagara Bottling’s Standard Carrier Terms and Conditions, including:

  • 100% transactional technology use compliance
  • 99% minimum tender acceptance rates
  • 90% appointment pick-up rates

Edge Logistics has been able to meet standards as a raw material transportation supplier, forecasting capacity and managing the transportation of these bulk raw materials

What Edge Accomplished to Receive Recognition

Unlike finished goods, raw materials are arguably more importantly managed in transportation. Without raw materials, the remainder of the Niagara bottling supply chain falls short. Using Edge CAPACITY, Edge Logistics has successfully delivered loads of raw materials and used real-time monitoring to meet Niagara GPS tracking requirements. This prevents all Niagara plants from running short of raw materials, which is a top concern as the global supply remains subject to uncertainty. In addition, Edge has hit a few notable milestones such as:

  • Delivering high-visibility loads of raw materials
  • Offering 24-hour bilingual support and access to reach a larger carrier network
  • Achieving a 98% on-time delivery rate

Of course, these accomplishments come in tandem with all pickup and tender requirements for carriers too.
