Caribbean Cold Storage Named An Approved Distributor For Yum Brands

Jacksonville based Caribbean Cold Storage has been named an approved distributor for Yum! Brands. They are one of only three companies in the United States approved as a distributor for the export market.

(PRWEB) March 15, 2022 -- Jacksonville based Caribbean Cold Storage has been named an approved distributor for Yum! Brands. They are one of only three companies in the United States to have such recognition. Yum! Brands is a holding company comprised of Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Long John Silver's and A&W; Restaurants. They are a Fortune 300 Company based in Louisville, KY. They are the world's largest quick-service restaurant company with over 33,000 restaurants in 100 countries.

The road to becoming a Yum! Brands approved distributor is not an easy one. There are stringent guidelines and policies that a company must have in place to even be considered. Then, the facility must remain in compliance, which is verified through a series of annual audits.

"Developing a partnership with Yum! Brands is the perfect strategic match for our future diversification. Yum! Brands operates a centralized purchasing system, which puts all buyers on a level playing field," explained Paul Robbins, CEO. "This will allow Caribbean Cold Storage and Caribbean Shipping Services to showcase our strengths: Logistics and Export. I feel that our business is a wonderful complement to the Yum! Brands' operations."

“One of the long term goals of the Caribbean companies is to duplicate our East Coast business model on the West Coast by establishing warehousing, inland transportation and ocean service capabilities in that region,” adds Bill Reed, Special Assistant to the President. “We are thrilled with the opportunities presented to us by establishing a relationship with Yum! Brands.”

“We are very focused on our future growth right now. Currently, most of our customers associate us with refrigerated shipping, but we are working hard to expand our presence in the dry shipping arena,” said Robbins. “We already have the infrastructure in place to offer the same cost effective and reliable services to the dry freight market. We are always searching for strategic business partners who are interested in expanding their business where we are a significant player, and Yum! Brands definitely fits that description.”

Today Caribbean operates from their main offices in Jacksonville, FL and satellite offices in San Juan, PR, Charlotte, NC and Howell, NJ. The company has twice been named to INC Magazine’s list of 100 Fastest Growing Inner City Companies. Since 1999 they have also been included in the First Coast 50, a listing of the top fifty privately owned companies in Northeast Florida.

Paul Robbins Addresses International Ocean Commerce Organization

Paul Robbins, CEO of Caribbean Shipping Services and Caribbean Cold Storage, speaks to the Propeller Club regarding the importance of third party logistics companies to the shipping industry.

(PRWEB) March 7, 2022 -- Paul Robbins, CEO of Caribbean Shipping Services and Caribbean Cold Storage, spoke to the Jacksonville, Florida chapter of the prestigious Propeller Club regarding the importance of third party logistics to the shipping industry. The Propeller Club of Jacksonville is one of the oldest chapters of the international club that promotes the significance and the necessity of all waterborne commerce. Robbins spoke at the request of Peter Baci, Vice President of Programs.

“Third party logistics companies and non-vessel operating common carriers are very important because they provide value added services that the carriers are not able to offer”, explained Robbins. “The difference between Caribbean Shipping Services and other 3PL’s is that we are an asset based company. We own trucks and operate our own warehouse. Because of this and our unique partnership with the carriers we are able to provide unparalleled services at competitive rates.”

Paul Robbins joins very distinguished company as a speaker at the Propeller Club. Former speakers include Bob Magee, CEO and Chairman of the American Shipping Group, the parent company of Sea Star Line. The original Propeller Club was established in 1922 in New York. The Jacksonville chapter, chartered in 1930, is one of the oldest continually active clubs in the nation and has 240 members. Its officers include President Captain Eric Bryson of the St. John’s Bar Pilots Association and President Elect Victoria Robas of the Jacksonville Port Authority.

Caribbean Shipping Services was founded in 1993 by Paul and Julie Robbins. Today they operate from their main offices in Jacksonville, FL and satellite offices in San Juan, PR, Charlotte, NC and Howell, NJ. The company has twice been named to INC Magazine’s list of 100 Fastest Growing Inner City Companies. Since 1999 they have also been included in the First Coast 50, a listing of the top fifty companies in Northeast Florida.

In January, Caribbean was presented with the prestigious Navigator Award from Frank Peake, President of Sea Star Line, one of their partners in the Puerto Rico trade lane. This prestigious award is presented to an individual or company that made a significant impact on Sea Star’s trek towards their goals and objectives. Caribbean Shipping Services and Caribbean Cold Storage offer ocean, air, inland transportation and consolidation services.
