Cumberland continues to improve and expand its operations with the addition of new equipment such as the recently installed J&L Specialty Folder Gluer and the first of two Alliance Pre-feeders! With our existing Bobst 135" Specialty Folder Gluer, we are one of the few box companies in the Southeast with multiple specialty folder gluers. Adding pre-feeders improves Cumberland's high graphic, quick turn capabilities. For our e-commerce clients, our die cutters and flexo folder gluers have inside-outside single pass capacity and our litho laminator augment our high graphic capability.
Packaging demand exploded in 2020, triggering a ripple effect in the supply chain and uncertainty for many customers. Cumberland buys corrugate from multiple suppliers allowing us to find the sheets we need to meet your requirements. Our diversity in suppliers and new equipment put Cumberland Container in the best position to meet your requirements !
Cumberland Container expanded its shipping fleet with the addition of two new Freightliner Cascadia tractors. This increase brings its total shipping capabilities to 8 tractors outfitted with electronic logging and GPS, one box truck for smaller deliveries, more than 50 trailers and a team of expert drivers who all have over 20 years of driving experience. The new Cascadia trucks are the first in Cumberland’s fleet to have automatic transmission and were purchased with the full array of the most advance safety technology. The new trucks complete the almost total replacement and upgrade of Cumberland’s fleet in less than 4 years.
“Getting our customers their packaging safely and on-time is very important to us,” said Phillip Key, shipping manager. “Our management continues investing in our shipping capacity because on-time delivery is an investment in our customers’ success. Cumberland enjoys a 96%+ on time shipping record."
