Cold Chain Fanatics from The Beginning
We were founded in 2008, by veterans of the poultry and meat industry who understood exactly what cold chain shippers needed from their transportation providers.
From our inception, we were focused on the cold chain transportation because we saw an opportunity to raise the bar on cold chain transportation. Having been cold chain shippers, we knew exactly what we wanted. We also knew how high the stakes were for a bad load.
RQL – Different by Design
From the beginning, we were different because we wanted to be better than the rest. When we decided to focus on cold chain transportation and food safety. As food safety became a bigger concern for the industry, we were ahead of the curve. We recognized that being cold chain experts meant we would also have to be food safety experts.
Performance. Reliability. Consistency.
RQL is designed from the bottom up to serve the Cold Chain Industry. Our processes, systems, people and culture… Our commitment to comprehensive training and development programs for our employees… and Our unyielding commitment to food safety, FSMA, and specifically cold chain excellence, means unparalleled performance and very happy Clients.
We realized early on that employee turnover would prevent us from serving our customers and growing our business. So, we committed ourselves to developing training programs so our new hires would be cold chain experts just like the veterans.
Having a great culture and an environment where everybody works together and is salaried means our turnover is remarkably low.
Our team is focused on customer satisfaction – not commission checks or who gets credit for what.
Nowadays, we have an enviable stable of excellent Carriers in our Carrier Network. We are very picky about who we use. And demanding. Only those Carriers who make the final cut work with RQL.
