With a history stretching back to the 1950s, Modern Transportation has earned its reputation as a carrier of choice and hauling kosher certified liquids is just an extension of that service

Just off the heels of joining the American Chemistry Council's (ACC) Responsible Care Partnership, Modern Transportation has also been certified by the OU as a kosher approved carrier.

"We are excited to partner with shippers that manufacture USP grade glycols and glycerins that fall within the kosher parameters and have successfully worked with the OU to review the trailers and products that we'll be hauling", stated Randy Sheeler, Vice President of Sales at Modern Transportation.

"There are a lot misunderstandings in the bulk liquid and dry transportation industry as to what "kosher" covers as far as products mix. Most think kosher certification only covers edible products, things we consume every day, but actually kosher status can cover a wide range of product in the skincare and beauty care industry that aren't for human consumption", added Randy.

"Working with the different Rabbi's in both New York and the gentleman assigned to our account here locally in Pittsburgh gave me a much better understanding or the parameters of what we can haul in these designated trailers and the importance of the kosher certified wash that needs to be performed after every load, " added Bob Smith, Sr. Director of Maintenance and Equipment. The auditing process that OU does is intense as they want to protect the integrity of the trailer and monitor every product that goes into that trailer.

Working with the OU gives us the recognition we need to market our company to large manufacturers of kosher products and we can feel certain that the auditing process used for tank trailers is much more intense for the manufacturer and tank wash facilities. We are comfortable that we've made the right choice in OU and look forward to adding equipment and shippers as we expand our marketing efforts to haul kosher products.
