The Herbal Garden: Need for Reliable Next-Day Delivery for Fresh Produce

Securing space for heavyweight packages on daily flights has been the cornerstone of the successful distribution model applied by DHL.
The Herbal Garden farms over 70 acres in Mexico and the U.S. and is one of the five largest providers of fresh herbs in the U.S. to major retail outlets, warehouses and warehouse distributors, and food service businesses. Vern Meyer, founder and CEO, figured out how to produce large quantities of fresh herbs and needed to transport them inside 18-23kg bags.

The Company had been working with freight forwarders and commercial airlines to transport fresh herbs but, as the business grew, it needed more reliable next-day delivery. The Herbal Garden also needed a provider that could assist more proactively with customs and regulatory issues – vital for meeting customer deadlines.
