Palisades Logistics proudly partners with Flagship Logistics Group. Based in Indianapolis IN, Flagship Logistics Group is a best-in-class third party logistics operation offering third-party contract and public warehousing services as well as frozen and refrigerated less-than-truckload (LTL) freight management services.
Private equity owned and part of a larger food company named Flagship Food Group, Flagship Logistics enjoys the ability to easily fund build-to-suit and convert-to-suit warehousing projects. In addition, to their third party logistics offerings, Flagship Logistics manages the supply chain of their food manufacturing and retail business units. This expertise helps Flagship Logistics provide unique solutions to third-party customers, often involving freight consolidation, cross-docking, co-selling, or technology-based solutions.
The “flagship” warehouse facility of Flagship Logistics Group is 600,000 square feet under contract to a fortune 500 manufacturing business. The facility operates 365/24 and handles more than 1.5 billion pounds of freight annually, in the form of 100+ truckloads of throughput daily. In addition, Flagship Logistics operates nearly 300,000 square feet of public warehousing space handling food products and consumer goods. Inspected annually by the American Institute of Baking (AIB), the facilities maintain a rating of Food Grade Superior over the past seven years and are ISO certified.
Freight management offices are located in Boise ID, Mesquite NV, Minneapolis MN and Indianapolis IN. Each office provides specific regions of the US with temperature controlled freight management and freight brokerage services with expertise in frozen LTL. Cross docking and freight consolidation services are offered through several strategic partnerships with third-party warehousing partners. This unique approach to temperature controlled LTL consolidation offers customers a solution to transcontinental LTL challenges, while also helping warehouse partners to develop or improve their own consolidation efforts.
Technology is the cornerstone of all Flagship Logistics service offerings. A completely paperless and task integrated WMS in the warehouses creates efficiencies and lowers cost. TMS technologies are real time enabled and leverage current communication technology allowing for on-time pick-up and delivery.
The secret to the success of Flagship Logistics Group is dedication to employee development and retention. All employees go through career level training in logistics, assuring a dedication to the company and its customers. As a result, employee turnover is less than 5% annually.
