Transportation Insight Provides Transportation Management Technology and Visibility to Death Wish Coffee Company

April 7, 2021

HICKORY, N.C. (April 7, 2021) –Transportation Insight, a North American leader in transportation management solutions, today announced a partnership with Death Wish Coffee Co. to provide technology-based management of truckload and less-than-truckload (LTL) transportation, financial settlement and freight claims in support of the coffee producer’s projections for 30 to 50 percent year-over-year growth.

Death Wish Coffee, creators of the World’s Strongest Coffee, was created in 2012 after owner and founder Mike Brown saw an opportunity to sell a bold, never bitter coffee out of his coffee shop. Now, almost 10 years later, Death Wish Coffee is sold in more than 14,000 stores nationwide. Death Wish Coffee engaged with Transportation Insight to access Transportation Management System (TMS) technology and visibility solutions. Along with technology, Death Wish Coffee needed a provider to support both a managed transportation solution across all modes and on-demand brokerage shipments. Transportation Insight along with Nolan Transportation Group provide a holistic approach to meet those distinct needs.

“As we continue to experience significant growth, Transportation Insight offers us scalable technology solutions that automate our processes, improve procurement of freight capacity, enhance visibility to our transportation activity and, ultimately, support the ongoing evolution of our business,” said Jason Mazzotti, vice president of supply chain for Death Wish Coffee. “More importantly, those systems are backed by an intentional approach and significant industry experience that makes Transportation Insight a great cultural fit with our organization.”

“Transportation Insight is focused on bringing scalable transportation management solutions to mid-market brands facing transportation challenges that create excess costs, reduce profit margins and impact service to end customers,” said Clay Gentry, president of Transportation Insight’s Transportation Management Division. “We are excited to work with Death Wish Coffee and provide the technology and visibility they need to support their near-term and long-term goals.”

Transportation Insight offers shippers of all sizes a complete portfolio of multi-modal freight management solutions that helps more than 750 customers control their transportation spend. Relying on long-term carrier relationships and brokerage services provided by sister company Nolan Transportation Group (NTG), Transportation Insight helps clients like Death Wish Coffee access the capacity and management technology needed to move their freight and realize sustainable growth.

About Death Wish Coffee

The World’s Strongest Coffee was born out of a void. In 2012, Mike Brown’s caffeinated curiosities landed him at the bottom of a rabbit hole, searching for a new frontier in an industry he loved. With a passion grown in his original coffee shop in Saratoga Springs, NY—Mike doubled-down on what he knew best and created something needed, not only by his active community, but by everyone. He searched far and wide for the best beans, perfected a unique roasting technique, and Death Wish Coffee, the World’s Strongest Coffee, was born. Now, Death Wish Coffee is sold online and in more than 14,000 stores nationwide. For more information, visit deathwishcoffee.com.
