"ColdPoint takes care of all our accounts' individual needs. Their Team's excellent attention to detail and quick response to any change, or need, makes up a great and consistent customer experience." - Rachel Hawkins, former Tyson Foods Regional Warehouse Manager

HEAVYWEIGHT

CORRIDOR

Established heavyweight corridor allows fully loaded trucks with weights of 96,500 pounds allowing cargo owners and shippers to reduce the number of trainloads required to bring products to market, reduce domestic trucking mileage, reduce reliance on cold storage at port facilities, and reduce heavyweight domestic drayage within the port complexes.

The midwest corridor is one of the best places on the planet for agricultural products and protein productions.

ColdPoint was formed to leverage this geographic advantage with a vision of storing and transloading agricultural products closer to their production locations which allows greater flexibility in serving end users.

Our WMS works without paper, allowing us to boost productivity. Regular upgrades ensure we remain an industry leader and to ensure consistent service delivery to our customers.

Labor

Management

System

(LMS)

Our LMS uses industrial engineering techniques to establish time standards (engineered standards) based on the complexity of the work (distance, time, reach, etc.). A “target time” is then calculated for us to assign a work set and the actual performance assessed against the target time. The ability to assess actual work against an accurate and objective target allows us to understand and improve performance. Optimized workforces also enables labor forecasting to maintain consistent best in class service.

Yard 

Management

System

(YMS)

Our YMS provides complete control over our trailer yard. Trailer locations are tracked in all yards (local, remote, customer sites) using manual, wireless mobile computers and auto ID technologies thereby eliminating the high costs of lost trailers. Shunting activities are controlled and monitored to ensure that all pick-ups and drops are done efficiently resulting in increased asset utilization and operating cost.
