Ruan is constantly expanding bulk food and dairy logistics operations throughout the country thanks to our expertise in the market and our ability to respond to and work with fluctuating milk, harvest, and production schedules. With our experience in dry bulk and liquid bulk shipping, we know that a successful food supply chain relies so much on timeliness, demand, and forecasting.

Ruan's professional food-grade tanker haulers are trained to adhere to strict food safety policies so that quality and service are not sacrificed due to factors in the supply chain. Thanks to our expertise in tracking and sanitation measurements, we continue to be a leader. 

We've been transporting dairy and food-grade products since the early 1950s. With complicated logistics, sanitation measurements, and tracking, food-grade bulk transport is a significant challenge for many carriers; yet, Ruan's professional drivers and robust training have made us a leader in this field. We have the agility to respond to frequently fluctuating schedules, and our innovations help customers ship more for less. We provide Kosher certification where necessary. Ruan's food-grade bulk freight experience includes fluid milk, cream, whey, wine, juice, vinegar, edible oil, liquid sweetener, purified water, spirits, liquid eggs, liquid chocolate, sugar, and more. Ruan is a partner you can trust to get the job done on time, from pickup to delivery.
