Who Is Greenshield Organic?

Founded by a father who noticed the staggering number of unsafe, harmful chemicals in the products he used to care for his family, Greenshield Organic has set out on a mission to bring clean, safe everyday goods to homes across America. Today, Greenshield produces a variety of household cleaners and detergents––all certified organic and sustainably manufactured, even bottled in containers made of sugar cane. 

As more and more families seek out environmentally responsible alternatives to old ways of doing things, Greenshield Organic is rapidly expanding their presence at major retailers across the country. Their product and mission have caught the attention of national grocers and other popular home-goods retailers. Greenshield was founded on the premise that the conventional way of washing clothes and doing dishes had to have a better solution––which is the mindset that also led them to ship with Flock Freight.

Big Customers & Big Expectations

With a superb product and a company mission that’s easy to rally behind, customers have been extremely receptive to Greenshield Organic’s product offerings and, as a result, have been able to gain shelf space with several major retailers. Being on-boarded as a supplier for a nationally recognized chain is a fantastic business development opportunity, but poses many challenges. Many large retailers require consistent supply and operate logistics under a strict protocol by which vendors must abide.

“Distribution centers always want your freight to arrive at a scheduled time that works for them. I have to request a delivery appointment from my carriers every single time.”

With hundreds of thousands of suppliers selling their product through massive retailers, it becomes necessary for the retailer to orchestrate their logistics with precision and efficiency. This means mandating hefty fines and additional charges if a supplier is unable to meet delivery requirements. For a company that is trying to make their mark and stand the test of growing sales, dependability becomes an absolute necessity.

The Flock Freight Difference

Greenshield Organic has been shipping with Flock Freight since 2016, building the FlockDirect service into their logistics operation to support them as they scale. Preferred partnership with Flock Freight has ensured that Greenshield has access to the best pricing and services Flock Freight has to offer, as well as a network of logistics professionals. The environmental benefit of pooling shipments fits in line with Greenshield’s sustainability mission, taking the partnership even further.

“Everything we do is sustainable and thoughtful. Our products are organic, our packaging is made from renewable materials, and we reduce waste as much as possible. We strive to make sure that everything we do is contributing to building a better future for our children.”

Pooling shipments with FlockDirect not only reduces greenhouse gas emissions—it also saves time. Weekend transit and on-time delivery help ensure that Greenshield’s strict delivery appointments are met with ease. With FlockDirect’s reliable on-time delivery, Greenshield has found a logistics partner that holds themselves accountable for providing the best possible service. FlockDirect’s 97.5% on-time delivery performance keeps Greenshield Organic’s customers happy and maintains their positive reputation as a supplier.

“Flock Freight takes responsibility for upholding a higher standard. I truly believe in their business and their vision.”

To ensure a shipment moves smoothly, the devil is in the details. With meticulous delivery appointments, it’s critical that Greenshield Organic is able to quickly and easily communicate the right time and place for their goods to move. This is where the Flock Platform excels. Greenshield can log in, enter all details necessary for their shipment, and quote out their shipments in seconds. If anything seems off, a dedicated Account Manager familiar with their business is a phone call away.

“The amount of movements I coordinate on a daily basis is staggering. Having the ability to go into the Flock Platform, enter the specifics for each shipment (pallet dimensions, due dates, etc.) and get a quick quote back has been one of the best parts of working with Flock Freight.”

Flexible transit options, competitive pricing, and unrivaled service continue to support sustained growth for Greenshield Organics, building a logistics operation with Flock Freight that will help bring their product into the homes of millions.
