(Bloomfield, CT – March 22, 2004) CROPP Cooperative, better known as Organic Valley Family of Farms and the largest source of organic milk in the nation, has selected Prophesy ShipperTPL software to handle their load building and transportation logistics needs.
Prophesy ShipperTPL is a comprehensive Transportation Management System specifically designed for third party logistics and public warehousing companies. It combines least-cost shipping, load-building optimization, and carrier rating/selection with customer charge calculations and shipment profitability analysis.

"We needed a solution that would allow us to meet demand efficiently, while also allowing us to handle last minute changes with speed and flexibility.

"Our software is designed to help companies such as Organic Valley with their complex shipping patterns. ShipperTPL will allow them to maximize their efficiency and avoid unnecessary expenses."
About Organic Valley Family of Farms
The Cooperative Regions of Organic Producer Pools (CROPP) began with just seven farmers who shared a love of the land and a belief that a new sustainable approach to agriculture was needed if family farms and rural communities were to survive. With more and more family farms threatened with extinction, these farmers set out to create a solution. That solution has grown into the largest organic farmer's cooperative in North America. Marketed under the Organic Valley™ label, the co-op soon became the largest source of organic milk in the nation. Their corporate headquarters is located in rural LaFarge, Wisconsin.
