Refrigerated Freight Service
The Bergstrom family has been involved with refrigerated freight for three generation. Starting in the early 70’s pioneer Gayle Bergstrom entered the world of “trucking”, and so the future C.E.O of B4 Logistics, Brad Bergstrom, was introduced to his first “big rig” and refrigerated transportation.
Washing his first refrigerated trailer at age 11, dispatching his first truck at 12, and relaying a green back number (for those of us who still remember them) to a driver at 13, Brad moved through the ranks of the transportation industry. Truck washer; lumping freight for drivers; warehouseman; regional dispatching; national safety director; national refrigerated freight broker, were all part of Brad Bergstrom’s resume by age 38.
Sports coaching was always a part of Brad’s life, so armed with these skill to train and manage, and his knowledge of refrigerated freight, B4 Logistics was founded in Feb 2005.
From inception to date millions of pounds of refrigerated food have been transported across North America with the help of B4logistics services. Companies such as: Reser’s Fine Foods, Costco, Walmart, Safeway, Albertsons, Raley’s, Winn Dixie, Us Foods, Piazza Pizza, Townsend Farms, and many others have come to depend on B4 logistics for reliable service on a daily basis. With a solid foundation in refrigerated transportation and a solid team that has been together for more than a decade: CFO Jeff Lee, Vice President of human resources Karen Derhalli, Vice President of marketing Bo Bergstrom, COO Chris Cornell, Regional Office manager Craig Elkinton, Regional Office manager Troy Heine, B4 felt ready and able to expand into the Heavy Haul transportation sector.
