Why our customers love us

DC Foods has worked hand in hand with both Erb Transport and Erb Cold Storage for numerous years now and are considered a key strategic business partner.

We can always rely on the professional commitment that Erb has shown us over the years in both our inbound and outbound shipments as well as our export needs and warehousing from their HACCP Certified Cold storage. The team work we have developed over the years is second to none.

Erb has been a huge part of our continued growth and success, they have met or exceeded the demands that our ever changing Industry has brought forth and we look forward to many more years of working together.

We constantly get calls from 3PL companies looking for business from ON into the U.S. We gave another company a shot at quoting and they said they couldn’t help us with better service or rates as we (Iceculture) are already using the best LTL company in their 56,000 carrier network. We are proud to say we work with Erb and it’s nice to know other companies think they are #1.

I’ve been reading the Erb Corporate History: Cool Moves and am inspired by the Erb Culture Business Philosophy (Chapter 8);

Now I have experienced the following 2 Entrepreneurial Imperatives:

#6. Be Service-focused, listen to customer’s concerns, and don’t say no to a reasonable request.

#7. Build business success on strong relationships and mutual loyalty.

I believe that I can speak on behalf of the Pine River Cheese Co-op Farmers and Employees;

to say that we are continually appreciative of the support we receive from Erb; and,

you have cemented a solid and loyal customer relationship.
