Avocados don’t grow in Maine. But residents and visitors in Portland, Maine can still take a seat at Scratch Toast Bar and enjoy a delicious avocado toast. How? Logistics companies. More specifically, cold chain logistics companies. When it comes to transporting fresh ingredients, frozen foods, medicine, and other goods that need to be temperature-controlled, 3rd-Party Logistic companies, or 3PLs, help move goods from where they are manufactured or grown to wherever they need to be for use or consumption. The cold chain connects the country and single-handedly creates new possibilities for different communities.
