Ocean Spray® sells more canned and bottled juices that any other company in the United States. The company’s supply chain is highly complex.  From the inbound shipment of raw materials to retail delivery, there are thousands of variables and decisions that directly affect the quality, price, and success of Ocean Spray products. About five years ago, supply chain leadership at Ocean Spray decided to take a highly proactive approach to this complex supply chain and use the best available talent and technology to optimize their transportation network.

They chose a Managed TMS® solution from TMC, a division of C.H. Robinson Worldwide, Inc. Within a short time, TMC earned an award as Ocean Spray’s “Third-Party Logistics Provider of the Year.” But more important, Ocean Spray continues to drive cost savings and network-wide performance improvements that routinely exceed expectations.
