When it comes to transportation, any carrier can handle deliveries when there are no issues or special circumstances. What defines a carrier is how they handle special needs, out of the way requests, and recoveries. PDS rises above the competition when it comes to handling our needs. Time and again, PDS has shown the flexibility, resourcefulness, and persistence needed to keep up with our ever changing needs. When servicing the food industry, these skills are a must to help us stay competitive. If your team requires refrigerated transportation services then PDS is an organization you need on your team.
