Fresh Food Exports

The problem to solve is gain a critical mass in LCL fresh shipments to get 3PL providers to support it:

For example, new bags delay cherries from ripening. Most of Idaho’s exported cherries are still flown, but the bags make it feasible to ship via water, which is cheaper.
Led by whey and cheese, dairy is Idaho’s largest farm-export sector. While fresh milk lacks the shelf life needed for long-distance shipping, cheese has it.
We are making progress at the small, private business level on the solution.
