No worries about freezing

As the flurries continue to fly and blizzards bear down, remember Holland protects cold-sensitive freight. Our forty years of expertise moving temperature-sensitive cargo and fully trained employees ensure that.

 No worries about freezing
No matter what your cargo, Holland knows how to handle your cold-sensitive freight. Our freeze protection program currently boasts a 99.9% damage-free performance!

With that track-record, you can be confident your goods will not dip below 32 degrees, and your supply-chain will remain unhindered.

Holland understands the implications of a damaged shipment. We have a rigorous protection system for your cold-sensitive cargo. Just mark your shipment's BOL (bill of lading) with "Protect from Freezing" and rest assured.

While your shipments are on the road, Holland employs technically engineered, environmentally friendly CargoQuilts®--independently tested technology to keep your cargo above freezing from point A to point B.

Keep the chill off your cold-sensitive cargo! Learn more about our Freeze Protection Service--complete a customer interest form or call us at 1-866-465-5263

The two most fundamental roles of any transportation provider are to complete deliveries on time, and damage-free

Late shipments result in displeased customers, and damaged cargo is often even worse.

Holland honored for helping heroes

On Friday, February 8, 2013, Holland was honored by the partner charities of Operation Homefront and H.E.R.O.E.S. Care for years of service to America's service men and women.

Holland President Scott Ware was present to receive an honorary American flag, which was once proudly flown in support of Operation Enduring Freedom on September 11, 2011 over Camp Eggers in Kabul, Afghanistan.

 Holland honored for helping heroes
The flag was received in recognition for over five years of participation by Holland in the bi-annual (sometimes quarterly) care package drive for American troops overseas.

According to Holland St. Louis linehaul driver and board member of Operation Homefront, Roy Gillespie, Holland has been responsible for much of the "heavy lifting" in these drives: sorting, handling, and delivering innumerable care packages--with the combined efforts of drivers, dock hands, management and operations personnel throughout the Holland network.

In addition to the care package drive, the St. Louis service center--the home base for Holland troop-supporting operations--helped Welcome Home the Troops last January in association with Operation Homefront.

Holland thanks Operation Homefront and H.E.R.O.E.S. Care for the extremely meaningul award.

We look forward to continuing our joint efforts in supporting our great nation's military men and women.
