When it comes to moving customer goods safely, on time, and on budget, Team Hardinger delivers. Industry-leading technology, a fleet of company trucks, 600,000 square feet of warehouse space, and a culture of personal accountability gives the Hardinger team the tools it needs to provide consistent value to customers.
“We chose Team Hardinger almost two decades ago because their team collaborated closely with us to solve our unique supply chain issues,” says Bob Guthrie, the Erie plant manager for Berry Plastics. “That ongoing teamwork helped us find efficiencies that have saved us time and money — which is why we still partner with them today.”
Team Hardinger’s experienced drivers deliver on-time 99 percent of the time, and the companywide inventory accuracy rate is 99.9 percent. Those statistics are indicative of the pride the company’s 130 employees take in their work. But the numbers are just part of Team Hardinger’s story.
“The trust our customers place in us — in our company values, our service, and our commitment to finding custom and rapid-response solutions — have made us an industry leader in Erie,” says Team Hardinger owner H. Bender, who purchased the company in 2015. “We are known for our best-in-class capabilities, which former owner Bill Schaal Sr. deserves a lot of credit for. His work and the pride every Hardinger team member takes in their job has us poised for even greater success in the future.”
