COLUMBUS, OHIO – Zipline Logistics announced today that it is now the official shipping partner for The Specialty Food Association (SFA). The partnership offers SFA members access to Zipline Logistics’ nationwide network of 25,000 food-grade and retail-qualified multimodal carriers, shipping discounts, exclusive technology offerings, logistics customer service, and educational materials specific to food and beverage shipping.
“A big part of our mission is to nurture and connect our members and their businesses,” said Leo Squatrito, vice president of strategic alliances at the SFA. “One of the ways we do that is by establishing relationships with high quality partners. This new partnership with Zipline Logistics supports our members in delivering their products to the marketplace at an optimal price and with increased efficiency.”
Zipline Logistics is a longstanding member of the SFA, a regular contributor to the association’s online Solutions Center, and sponsor of the association’s Summer and Winter Fancy Food Shows
“We are thrilled to grow our relationship with the Specialty Food Association and to assist more specialty food makers with elevating their transportation programs,” elaborates Andrew Lynch, Zipline Logistics’ president and co-founder. “Retail and grocery deliveries are tough and high performance is critical. Executing against these standards can be particularly difficult for makers who may not be able to give the time and attention that this critical function requires. We look forward to providing SFA members what they need to excel in this competitive shipping environment.”
