Shorr partners with premier meat retailer for full-service packaging solutions

Shorr‘s customer, a premier meat retailer, has built a 125 year reputation for supplying prime USDA beef, exceptional meats and seafood to restaurants in the Chicago area. Their e-commerce business expanded throughout the US, so the customer needed a packaging and distribution partner with the same commitment to excellence. They needed a partner to not only erect coolers but store them until being shipped and provide a more sustainable option for shipping.

Before Shorr, the customer primarily served local Chicago restaurants and manually managed the distribution of their products (packaging their own materials, assembling their own EPS coolers and storing them at their facility). With the help of Shorr, they automated packaging in their processing facility and shipping/distribution processes. Now, Shorr sources packaging materials, erects corrugated boxes, inserts recycled PET insulated panels, palletizes and shrink wraps various coolers, plus stores and ships them just in time.

Shorr’s ability to manage the packaging process from start to finish has been instrumental to ensuring the shipped food has maintained the integrity of this meat retailer’s brand. From just-in-time delivery, to automated assembly, exceptional packaging for ultimate cooler performance, and sourcing sustainable products, Shorr has saved them considerable time, effort and money.
