Sterman Masser has announced the creation of Masser Logistic Services (MLS), an operating company dedicated to insuring on-time, accurate and efficient delivery of product to the customers of Masser Potato Farms, Keystone Potato Products and the partners of Fresh Solutions Network.
“Creation of Masser Logistic Services formalizes and enhances our ability to deliver on one of our core operational solutions: seamless, transparent order management, logistics and customer service,” says David Masser, president and COO of Sterman Masser. “It is also a natural extension of the SMI brand and reputation. From our farming and packing operations to our account managers to our truck drivers, the SMI and MLS teams are committed to exceeding our customers’ expectations for high quality products and service. With our customer-first focus, strategic geographic location, and owned fleet of trucks, we consistently maintain one of the fastest response times in the industry.”
Masser Logistic Services owns and operates a fleet of 15 trucks. Each truck is equipped with an auxiliary power unit that is utilized while idling in order to improve fuel efficiency and extend engine life. “The MLS team is committed to superior customer service while minimizing our environmental impact,” says Rich Miller, Director of Procurement and Logistics at MLS. “We are located within 3 hours of a significant percentage of potato consumption in the United States; with our expanded, leading-edge fleet of trucks and experienced logistics service team, we will continue to raise the bar on service performance and innovation.”
