Axios Mobile Assets Corp. has announced that a tenth major US egg supplier has begun using the Company’s unique pallet-based logistics solution for transporting products to regional Distribution Centres.
Purchase orders received from the customer cover facilities shipping eggs and egg products from the states of Ohio and Indiana. Because the facilities are in close proximity to an Axios pallet-washing plant and to egg producing facilities of existing customers, the new orders present an opportunity for the Company to increase density within current delivery lanes.
“Our new customer operates in areas the Axios team knows well and this should enable us to achieve a high level of efficiency during both initial rollout and ongoing system management,” said Richard MacDonald, President and CEO of Axios Mobile Assets. “The customer’s production facilities are fairly close to our sanitization facility in Ohio, which is another positive aspect of the new orders,” he added.
Axios employs a proprietary Safe Quality Food (SQF)-certified washing process to sanitize its pallets after each use. Superior strength-to-weight ratio and advanced track-and-trace capabilities are among other features making the Axios solution an increasingly popular choice for producers of perishable goods. Axios supplies pallets and logistics to four of the five largest egg producers in the United States, and now 10 of the top 40.
