Robinson’s logistics experts, innovation teams, and data scientists collaborate with customers and carriers to create personalized solutions for shippers’ challenges with the industry’s premier technology that is built by and for supply chain experts. Robinson Labs works hand in hand with the company’s technology team of more than 1,000 data scientists, engineers, and developers.

Robinson uses an agile approach and will continue to roll out new features to Navisphere Insight. Additional global forwarding functionality and insights on how to reduce carbon footprint are among the planned new features.</p> <p>Leading companies such as L’Oréal and Target have been part of the pilot phase of Navisphere Insight, providing valuable feedback to ensure that customer needs are being addressed.</p> <p>“Our work with the C.H.

Robinson CEO Bob Biesterfeld Announces Company’s Largest Investment in Innovation and Technology<p><strong><span>Eden Prairie (September 17, 2019)?</span></strong><span>— C.H. Robinson President and CEO Bob Biesterfeld today announced the company’s largest investment in innovation, advanced technologies and talent, supported by recent in-depth customer research, that will shape the future of the logistics ecosystem.</span></p> <p><span>C.H. Robinson has committed to investing $1 billion in technology over the next five years, doubling its previous $1 billion investment in technology over the last 10 years. With more than 1,000 data scientists, engineers and developers, the company is continuing to invest in global talent in this critical area, making an already strong team even stronger. </span></p> <p><span>“We are a platform-driven solutions company with technology built by and for supply chain experts, powered by our information advantage,” Biesterfeld said. “It’s when these tools are leveraged by the smartest and most relentless experts—who really understand and are committed to our customers’ business—that we create extreme value in the supply chain for our clients’ benefit.”</span></p> <p><span>Speaking at the <a >Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) EDGE Conference in Anaheim</a>, California, Biesterfeld explained how big data and digital technologies, including artificial intelligence, machine learning and predictive analytics, are having a profound impact on the supply chain marketplace. He discussed why only those who leverage both technology and talent will compete and win on supply chain in the future. </span></p> <p><span>“C.H. Robinson solves logistics problems for companies across the globe and across industries, from the simple to the most complex” Biesterfeld said. “We put the customer at the center of everything we do—listening, understanding their needs and using our expertise to solve their most complex logistics challenges.”</span></p> <p><span>During his remarks, Biesterfeld also shared specific feedback and actionable insights from more than 3,000 shippers, both domestic and international, highlighting their evolving priorities and needs. Among some of the research findings:? </span></p> <ul> <li><strong>Technology is more important than ever,</strong>with 88 percent of shippers who contract to purchase freight saying that technology is extremely or very important when choosing a logistics provider.</li> <li><strong>Visibility and predictive tools are external logistics providers’ most important assets,</strong> with 65 percent of customers saying they either have or are planning on implementing real-time visibility and insight tools in the next two years.</li> <li><strong>Local expertise is key,</strong> with 83 percent of shippers saying that having a logistics partner with local and global expertise is essential to their business needs.</li> </ul> <p><span>The results from the customer research demonstrate how important new capabilities, visibility into supply chains and deep expertise in local and global needs are. During his remarks, Biesterfeld highlighted the findings and identified trends in the industry to demonstrate how C.H. Robinson will continue to invest in innovation to help their customers win. The trends include:? </span></p> <p><span><strong>People will drive technology.</strong> Despite new tools and technologies, people will become more important to the supply chains of the future. C.H. Robinson’s research showed how shippers value local expertise, and as technology accelerates and global sourcing grows, the ability to connect them and understand how supply chains really function will be critical.? </span></p> <p><span><strong>To go global, we must first go local.</strong> As the world becomes more connected, businesses are accessing the global market like never before—and they need the kind of global expertise and experience that C.H. Robinson provides. The kind of complexity that global commerce creates is very challenging. Having a partner with a global network of local experts who can act as an extension of a customer’s team is a significant competitive advantage.? </span></p> <p><span><strong>Investments in infrastructure are key. </strong> In our global economy, even the best ideas cannot win without first winning on supply chain. One recent study found nearly 80 percent of companies with high-performing supply chains achieve revenue growth greater than the average within their industries. That can’t happen without great infrastructure.? </span></p> <p><span>“We’re excited about the future and look forward to continuing to innovate,” Biesterfeld said. “We are leading the way forward in logistics, addressing customer needs and laying the foundation for the next generation of tools and processes that will change not only how supply chains function, but ultimately change how our world is connected.”? </span></p> <p style="background: white; margin: 0in 0in 6pt; text-align: center;"><span>?###</span></p> <p><span>?</span></p> <p><strong><span>?</span></strong></p> <p><strong><span>About C.H.

Robinson’s commitment to reconciliation. “C.H.

Projects which build sovereign capability and infrastructure, offering longer term contracts and relationships with clients and meaningful participation of the Indigenous business sector. Energised and enthused by the National Innovation and Science Agenda, Indigenous entrepreneurs have rallied together to become a key cog in the supply chain of prime contractors in the Defence Industry.</span><br /> <span>?</span><br /> <span>As a supply chain aggregator and account manager, the iDiC focuses on identifying business opportunities for its Indigenous business consortium partners. It then presents turnkey solutions providing a de-risked integrated offering to its clients. The iDiC is able to navigate the supply chain requirements of large companies, which are somewhat daunting for small to medium enterprises, and prequalify as an approved supplier. By taking this approach Indigenous businesses are getting access to contracts which they normally would not have been able to as a stand-alone business.

Robinson Launches Next Generation Transportation Technology in Europe<p style="text-align: left;"><strong><span>AMSTERDAM (May 29, 2018)</span></strong><span>—C.H. Robinson announced today the launch of its Navisphere? Driver mobile app in Europe, designed to allow drivers to view and update information on their loads while on the road. The app automatically submits required in-transit updates and enables drivers to scan and upload documents to expedite payment processes.</span></p> <p style="text-align: left;"><span style="color: black;">“Today, companies that ship products require on-time updates on where their shipments are at any given moment,” said Jeroen Eijsink, president of C.H. Robinson Europe. “Before Navisphere Driver, drivers had to stop frequently or call from the road to manually provide tracking information. Now, the driver’s phone can do the work automatically for them.”</span></p> <p style="text-align: left;"><span>The mobile application, available for iPhone? and Android? devices in the App Store and on Google Play, was designed specifically for drivers. It delivers load assignments through easy SMS text notifications. It uses geo-fence updates and the phone’s location service to automatically submit near real-time load updates each hour, or more frequently if the shipper requires it. Tracking lasts for the life of the load. Finally, the driver can use the phone’s camera and the app to scan and upload paperwork to begin the payment cycle.</span></p> <p style="text-align: left;"><span>“Today we support most of the European Telematic providers. That means your in-cab units can directly send stop and in-transit updates to C.H. Robinson when you carry a load for us,” Dave Fraas, general manager of the company’s IT group in Europe, added. “We are excited to provide this as an additional service to our carrier network, as part of our full suite of robust technology solutions.”</span></p> <p style="text-align: left;"><span>C.H. Robinson develops in-house technology solutions with the future in mind. Navisphere? Driver is a product of Navisphere?, a single global transport management system (TMS) built to provide customers end-to-end visibility, efficiency and automated reporting of their shipments across any region or mode of transportation. Navisphere? and its products are flexible and efficient, and integrate with almost any structured data file or enterprise resource plan. It allows customers and carriers to quickly bring all aspects of the supply chain together for local and global shipments.</span></p> <p style="text-align: left;"><span>By working with C.H. Robinson, customers and carriers alike can lean on professional, responsive experts who know the transportation industry. The company supports carriers to improve their efficiency and profitability, by giving them access to one of the largest freight networks in Europe, and gives shippers the ability to tap into technology that makes their business more adaptable and efficient, by automating processes and interactions. </span></p> <p style="text-align: left;">?</p> <p style="text-align: left;"><strong><span>About C.H.

Robinson announced today the launch of its trans-Eurasian rail freight service between China and Europe. The new service offering connects nine origin terminals in China with eight destination cities in Europe.</span></p> <p style="text-align: left;"><span>“The new rail line complements our air and ocean offerings, giving customers the ultimate in flexibility. It is for freight that requires faster transit times than ocean, at twice the speed, with substantial savings over air,” said Mike Short, president, Global Forwarding at C.H. Robinson. He notes the new service is a convenient direct link to and from China’s booming economic cities to multiple countries and destinations in Europe. “C.H. Robinson’s strategic development of European gateways gives customers more choice, along with exceptional service and competitive pricing.” ?</span></p> <p style="text-align: left;"><span>With the new routes, customers also have more sustainable service and wider coverage. C.H. Robinson offers empty container pick up, collection at factories, customs declaration at origin, customs clearance and further pan-European distribution by intermodal and truck services at destination areas. Full block train, single or multiple containers, LCL shipments and oversized cargo are available options.</span></p> <p style="text-align: left;"><span>Ivo Aris, vice president, C.H. Robinson Europe Global Forwarding, added: “Until recently, a large percentage of container shipments from China to Europe were delivered by sea. By adding this service to our portfolio, we won’t compete with ocean shipping or air freight, but rather further complement the breadth of services we already offer to our customers.”</span></p> <p style="text-align: left;"><span>Each freight train requires approximately 18-20 days to complete the tour between terminals in Zhengzhou, Suzhou, Chongqing, Chengdu, Wuhan, Yiwu, Xiamen, Shenzen and Guangzhou in China, with the cities of Melaszewicze, Hamburg, Duisburg, Milan, Tilburg, Lyon and Paris in Europe, and Barking in the UK.</span></p> <p style="text-align: left;"><span>?</span></p> <p style="text-align: left;"><span></span></p> <p style="text-align: left;"><span></span></p> <p style="text-align: left;"><strong><span>About C.H.

Vision Revolutionizes Global Supply Chain Management<p><strong><span>MINNEAPOLIS, MN (September 12, 2017) </span></strong><span>— Today, C.H. Robinson, a leading third party logistics provider (3PL), introduces a bold new innovation with the launch of Navisphere? Vision, a supply chain technology that provides real-time global visibility across all modes and regions in one platform. Through the rich integration of experienced supply chain professionals, world class technology and customer insights, C.H. Robinson is reinventing global supply chains by making them more prescriptive, automated and efficient.</span></p> <p><span>Navisphere Vision continues to advance the powerful and proven capabilities of C.H. Robinson’s proprietary Navisphere technology platform. Microsoft, an innovator in fulfillment and logistics capabilities and a customer of C.H. Robinson’s TMC division, has been using Navisphere Vision since its alpha release in 2016.</span></p> <p><span>“</span><span>Navisphere Vision helps us understand the things that we couldn’t before. It provides visualization that connects data and the real-time events that are happening within our supply chain,” said Alaina Hawkins, senior manager of global logistics at Microsoft. “Navisphere Vision helps us make decisions on a more precise, real-time level so we can address any challenges that might occur, react in a less randomized fashion, create predictability throughout our supply chain, and increase collaboration so we can deliver our products to customers on time. It’s tremendously powerful.”</span></p> <p><span>In addition to providing real-time visibility down to a SKU level, Navisphere Vision delivers insights and impacts of potential disruptions from weather, traffic or current events, as well as predictive analytics to help shippers make better, faster decisions. This next generation of real-time supply chain visibility enables shippers to improve customer service and cost controls through management of inventory in motion, proactive status updates, limiting disruptions and risk mitigation. Shippers can gain a single view of all global inventory to support working capital needs and cash to cash cycle management. Access to real-time global visibility, combined with new supply chain insights, empowers shippers with new agility, accuracy and real-time decision-making to stay a step ahead of the competition.</span></p> <p><span>“The industry has seen supply chain visibility tools before, but Navisphere Vision represents the next generation,” said Jordan Kass, president of TMC. “Not only is it global, but Navisphere Vision goes far beyond visibility and helps our customers predict supply chain disruptions before they even occur.”</span></p> <p><span>“This solution provides unique benefits for our customers. Its ability to serve all global regions across any transportation mode, as well as layering in potential disruptions, provides our customers with powerful data, insights and opportunities to make changes quickly,” said Chad Lindbloom, chief information officer at C.H. Robinson. “Navisphere Vision utilizes API technology to aggregate all other supply chain and information sources into one single location, giving our customers the most streamlined, real-time solution available.

This line of produce offers customers more fruit and vegetable variety at a lower cost while helping to reduce produce waste. </p> <p>Misfits, a program provided by <a >Robinson Fresh</a>, helps connect consumers to tasty but misshapen fruits and vegetables at a reduced price. In an effort to curb produce waste due to size and shape restrictions from industry standards, Misfits works with retailers like Shoppers to broaden the size and shapes of produce allowed for sale.</p> <p><span style="font-size: 1.1em; font-family: Verdana, Arial, sans-serif;"><img alt="Misfits" src="/en-US/newsroom/-/media/global-newsroom/Press-Release-Heros/2016/Misfits-illustration-final.jpg?h=265&w=250&la=en-US" style="height: 265px; width: 250px; margin-right: 10px; float: left;" /></span></p> <p>We understand there is produce left in the field because farmers don’t think there is a market for it,” says Hunter Winton, Robinson Fresh general manager of the West. “With the Misfits program, farmers have an outlet to sell more produce and customers have an opportunity to save money and help reduce waste.”</p> <p>The United Nations estimates between 20 to 40 percent of produce harvested each year is thrown away because it does not meet sizing standards for store shelves. In accepting less cosmetically-pleasing produce on Shoppers’ shelves, the company is also aligning with USDA’s goal of reducing food waste by 50 percent by the year 2030.</p> <p>“It’s important to our company and it’s important to our customers that we find sustainable business solutions at a lower cost,” says Mike Patterson, Shoppers Food & Pharmacy director of Produce. “We’re still providing consistent quality and taste, but these vegetables might look a little different than what’s normally on our shelves.”</p> <p>Each week, four to six Misfit commodities are delivered, based on what is seasonally available. Misfits produce is sold on average at a 30 percent discount. All products are of the same taste and quality of typical produce, but may have a little more character than other produce. Robinson Fresh is collaborating with a handful of select retailers who align with the goals of the program.? <br /> <br /> </p> <p style="text-align: center;">###</p> <p><strong>About Robinson Fresh<sup>?</sup><br /> </strong>Robinson Fresh got its start in the produce industry over 100 years ago, providing fresh fruits and vegetables to the settlers of North America.

Robinson and Western Growers Celebrate 10 Year Anniversary of Transportation Program<p style="line-height: 115%;"><strong>Minneapolis, MN (August 25, 2016) — </strong>Ten years ago, <br /> C.H. Robinson and Western Growers formed the <a target="_blank">Western Growers Transportation Program</a> to provide supply chain solutions for fresh produce growers in North America. To celebrate the anniversary of this program, C.H. Robinson and Western Growers hosted a Giving Day on August 24, 2016, across the country, using C.H. Robinson’s Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, hub as a collection and distribution center.</p> <p style="line-height: 115%;">In keeping with the produce focus of the program, the food drive event encouraged growers to donate to Feeding America—either through product or monetary donations. At the end of the day, <a href="/en/us//en-US/newsroom/-/media/global-newsroom/PDF/Donation Logo Graphic.pdf" target="_blank">participating growers and associations donated more than 240,000 pounds of produce, along with monetary donations,</a> equating to over 250,000 meals. C.H. Robinson donated the transportation needed for the event. The donations went to <a target="_blank">Feeding America</a> locations across the country. Feeding America is the nation’s largest domestic hunger relief organization, providing food to 46 million low-income Americans every year.</p> <p style="line-height: 115%;">“Over the past 10 years, C.H. Robinson has worked with many grower-shippers through the Western Growers Transportation Program and has helped them improve their supply chains,” said Luke Gowdy, general manager at C.H. Robinson. “We are energized by the 10-year celebration, the participation of growers in Giving Day, and the future of the program.”</p> <p style="line-height: 115%;">“Thank you to the generous grower-shippers who donated product and monetary donations,” said Matt McInerney, senior executive president of Western Growers. “It is rewarding to see how these donations will impact local communities and bring fresh produce to those who may not have easy access to it.”</p> <p style="line-height: 115%;">Since its inception, the Western Growers Transportation Program has been dedicated to enabling growers to focus on their core competencies: growing, harvesting, and packaging nutritious, fresh produce.

Robinson Opens Second Air Freight Screening Facility<p><strong>EDEN PRAIRIE, MN (January 27, 2016)</strong> – To better support air service in the Los Angeles area, reduce delays for customers, and improve tracking capabilities, C.H. Robinson announced today that the company has opened a new state of the art <a style="color:#006aa7;" target="_blank">certified cargo screening facility</a> (CCSF) in Carson, CA. This is the second CCSF operated by C.H. Robinson. The first facility opened on April 18, 2012, in Chicago, IL. </p> <p>C.H. Robinson's in-house screening facility includes approximately 20,000 square feet of warehouse space, state of the art screening machines, and a dedicated air freight team to screen air freight that moves through the facility. The facility is tied directly to Navisphere<span class="super">?</span>, the company's <a style="color:#006aa7;" href="http://www.bairi14.com/en/us/About-Us/Navisphere-Technology-Platform/Navisphere-Online-Access/" target="_blank">global technology platform</a>, allowing customers to track their freight before, during, and after the CCSF. This adds a level of visibility that is often missing during the screening process.</p> <p>In 2010, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) mandated that all air cargo be scanned to the piece level prior to loading on a passenger airplane, which is most commonly handled by the airlines or third party facilities. The level of scrutiny required can cause delays if resources and personnel have additional responsibilities—as is often the case for airlines and third party facilities.</p> <p>"We're excited about the new screening facility. Rather than relying on a third party to perform the required screenings on their schedule, now we can assure our customers that our trained experts are reviewing their shipments,” explained Tim Reiff, general manager, North America air freight. “The facility also features convenient airfreight doors that speed up the process. Once cargo is screened, it can be quickly transferred to or from the airlines."</p> <p>In order to become certified under the TSA's screening program, C.H. Robinson's CCSF had to complete a rigorous certification process. This included developing and sharing the facility's procedures, protocols, policies, and other relevant data as well as a two-day site visit, walkthrough, and interviews with key personnel. </p> <p>"Los Angeles is a strategic location for our new CCSF," shared Matt Castle, director, global air services, "It's a primary gateway for our global air service, as well as a key location for domestic air flights. The facility is a great opportunity for our shippers to gain visibility, ensure compliance, and secure protection for their global and domestic air shipments."</p> <p><a href="/en/us//en-US/newsroom/-/media/global-newsroom/PDF/CHRobinsonOpensSecondAirFreightScreeningFacilitySimplifiedChinese.pdf">Read in Simplified Chinese</a></p> <p><a href="/en/us//en-US/newsroom/-/media/global-newsroom/PDF/CHRobinsonOpensSecondAirFreightScreeningFacilityTraditionalChinese.pdf">Read in Traditional Chinese</a></p> <p><strong>About C.H.
