Austin, Texas (October 13, 2023) – Arrive Logistics, a leading multimodal transportation and technology company headquartered in Austin, Texas, has been recognized for the second consecutive year as a “Top Food Chain Provider” by Food Chain Digest, the official magazine of Food Shippers of America. The award honors industry leaders who excel in capabilities and service to food transportation, logistics, distribution and supply chain management.
“This award is a testament to our team’s consistency in service and commitment to provide creative solutions for our shippers’ unique needs,” said Mitch Mazzaro, Director of Temperature Controlled Solutions at Arrive. “We are proud of our extensive training programs on the movement of perishable goods, and our expertise on market conditions which allow us to best serve our partners.”
Moving perishable and sensitive freight requires collaboration among all parties throughout the supply chain. To ensure all loads are being moved responsibly, Arrive employs an internal certification program to ensure sales representatives are equipped with the training and expertise to be a strong partner when moving temperature-controlled freight. The company also significantly expands its core group of trusted carrier partners each year–ensuring shipments are transported by carriers who consistently meet and exceed shipper requirements when hauling sensitive, temperature-controlled freight.
These measures have resulted in transportation service awards from elite, enterprise customers of Arrive who lead several food and beverage industry categories, including Domino’s, Molson Coors, Mark Anthony Brands, U.S.Foods, and more to be announced.
“Supply chain professionals in the food industry continue to rely on their logistics partners and carriers to help manage a productive, efficient and seamless food chain – particular in an industry that has significant disruption,” said Brian Everett, Group Publisher and Editorial Director of Food Chain Digest, the official magazine of Food Shippers of America. “Companies like Arrive Logistics made it on the 2023 Top Food Chain Providers list because they provide significant value to food shippers at a time when demand in all modes has been surging while the people and assets needed to move and store goods and materials remain scarce. This program highlights providers that are helping shippers successfully navigate through their food chain challenges and accomplish their business goals.”
“Our team tackles challenges head-on and brings our mission to life by leveraging our well-established and unique capacity network, leading technology and the deep expertise of our leadership and mentors,” added Mazzaro.

About The Top Food Chain Provider Award
This is the first year that Food Chain Digest has deployed this recognition program to serve as a resource to food shippers as they secure partners and capabilities in managing their supply chain strategy and execution.
Here’s how the program works: First, nominations were made by food chain providers and reviewed by the staff of Food Chain Digest. Requirements of all candidates are that they are a 3PL, freight broker, motor carrier, rail/intermodal provider, or maritime company that generate at least U.S. $5 million in gross global sales. These nominations were evaluated based upon value provided to food shippers, achievements accomplished in the last 12-18 months, and solutions that have helped to solve a business problem of food shippers.
Next, nearly 6,000 participants in the food industry voted for nominated companies that had the strongest reputation and value in the food chain technology segment. As part of the process, companies earning an adequate volume of votes are validated, which helped to identify the companies named to the list.
