Confectionery Product Spotlight

GOETZE

Goetze’s Candy, makers of Caramel Creams®, Cow Tales® and other confections, wanted to reduce costs and improve service for temperature-controlled deliveries from the company’s East Coast manufacturing plant to retail customers in the Midwest and Western U.S. The company was using LTL carriers and experiencing poor reliability and sub-par customer service.

KANE’s pool distribution solution provided a faster, cheaper alternative to LTL shipping, reducing costs drastically through consolidation. Goetze’s products travel with other confections in trailers that maintain a temperature between 50⁰F–60⁰F, ensuring the integrity of the cold chain.

Check your temperature

When it comes to temperature, candy products like chocolate can be temperamental.  Too hot and they can melt, too cold and they can discolor and change texture.

But how do you know if your 3PL is maintaining the warehouse environment according to your strict temp range specifications?  Well, you don’t – unless you work with an experienced operator of temp-controlled warehouses, like KANE, that maintains advanced temperature and humidity monitoring systems. If the temperature falls or rises outside the specified range, designated managers are automatically alerted to address the issue immediately.  The system can also be programmed to alert off-site customer contacts.
