Read on to learn more about Birkby’s third-party logistics solutions for the food & beverage industry.

Warehousing Tailored to Your Needs

If your business is in the market for a 3PL provider, you’ve probably noticed that warehousing solutions and capabilities can vary widely. In the food & beverage industry, it is critical that your warehousing meets your specific needs; spoiled inventory, product recalls, and damage to your brand’s reputation is only a few of the consequences of improper storage and food handling. Your logistics partner needs to be able to preserve and protect your goods throughout the supply chain, ensuring your customers receive a top-quality product every time.

With multiple fulfillment centres across Western Canada, Birkby Food Service is ready to meet the most demanding warehousing and storage needs. Our facilities can maintain ambient, refrigerated, and frozen (down to -28ºC) temperatures suitable for nearly any requirement, ensuring consistency and regulatory compliance throughout the supply chain. Combined with real-time management and reporting powered by Routeique, we offer complete, scalable inventory solutions for operations of all sizes and scopes.

Efficient Shipping and Distribution

No matter the industry, every part of the supply chain matters. However, the Last Mile before your product reaches your customers can make or break your business. Getting food products to market on-time and in good condition is non-negotiable, but a distributor’s high shipping costs and inefficient practices can prevent companies from reaching their full potential.

Since 1918, Birkby Food Service has built its reputation on exceptional food distribution services. Today, we’re proud to offer cutting-edge solutions to keep our clients’ supply chains efficient down to the Last Mile. Our facilities process over 10,000 orders each week, with comprehensive systems to ensure every order is picked, packed, and sent out efficiently. On the road, route optimization and real-time tracking powered by Routeique ensure fast deliveries and minimized costs anywhere in Western Canada. Meanwhile, automated order technology efficiently manages your inventory for every incoming order (complete with full integration with all major eCommerce platforms). Our fulfillment systems are engineered to scale to your unique needs, allowing you to focus on growing your business while your products arrive where they need to be.
