DISTRIBUTION: Online Colorado Ordering
LeafLink Inc., Denver, now handles more than 100 official Colorado cannabis retailers with an online ordering platform for marijuana-infused products from Keef Cola, Dixie Elixirs, Foria and ZOOTS, among others.
The platform, which launched this spring, is designed exclusively for the cannabis industry, and each retailer placing orders must have a valid license from the Colorado Marijuana Enforcement Division (MED).
Prior to using LeafLink, retailers traditionally ordered products from their vendors by texting, emailing or calling their sales representatives. With some marijuana stores selling products from more than 20 vendors, their ordering often consumed a day or more each week.
Now, on LeafLink, Colorado retailers can order from multiple brands for all of their licenses, both recreational and medical, in one online cart.
“LeafLink’s all-in-one platform has simplified placing orders in a time-efficient manner,” said Josh Best, who places orders for Medicine Man. “It has eliminated the hassle of numerous phone calls, texts, and emails with our vendors regarding current inventory and what’s available for purchase.
“The reorder feature has been an added bonus and has saved me a lot of time.”
Currently, the platform also offers products from Stix, Evolab, Infinite Infusions and hemp-based Nature’s Love. Cannapunch, Wana Brands, Ebbu, Strainz, Mahatma Concentrates, Good Meds, Herbanoids, and THC-free CBD Luxe will be rolled out on the platform over the next month.
Brands such as Strainz, a marijuana concentrates producer in Nevada, and ZOOTS, which currently sells six of the top ten edibles in Washington, are looking to break into the Colorado market. They seek access to potential retailers, who can order samples on LeafLink before purchasing the products for their stores.
LeafLink plans to expand to other states where marijuana is legal later this year.
DELIVERY: Quality’s Job #1
Quality Coachworks, Ontario, Calif., offers the custom security delivery vehicle, using the Ford Transit, to revolutionize cannabis transport by increasing safety and efficiency.
The base Ford Transit body turns out to be a fantastic shell for a secure delivery vehicle. Once finished, a steel divider wall separates the cab from the trunk, which holds multiple lockers for product. Carbon-steel lockers house up to 21 different compartments that must be unlocked with a digital passcode.
24-hour interior/exterior camera surveillance system surrounds the car. These four cameras maintain watch and cover all of the necessary angles to protect the vehicle (one in the cab, two in the rear, and one overseeing the back door). This camera system transmits out so you are able to watch live footage from any location at any time. All footage is also saved in a data card hidden in the back of the vehicle to keep an on-hand record that can be accessed after usage.
A climate and humidity control system protects all cargo in the rear of the car, and allows the user to set it to the exact setting the delivery needs. Double insulation and 10-gauge steel line the rear cabin to maintain temperature and protect precious merchandise. Intellitrace GPS system built into the car allows for tracking of the vehicle from anywhere and the ability to kill the engine in case of theft.
Interior LED lighting keeps the back storage area lit and allows optimal workflow at night or in dark areas. Rear doors to the vehicle have an additional security lock to prevent break-ins. Protective door stopper hinges align the back door to keep the doors safe and to prevent damage to the Ford Transit.
Quality Coachworks is owned by Dominick Vitelli, a custom-vehicle designer and builder with 33 years of experience in the industry. Quality specializes in stretch limousines, luxury hearses, custom coaches, armored vehicles, limo buses, executive and business delivery transportation.
Secure transportation requires a quality vehicle that won’t hamper business flow. Compact but able to safely store, protect, and move product without issues; the Ford Transit custom delivery vehicles can fill out any fleet. Quality Coachworks offers all of this in their take on the Ford Transit and allows complete customization to the clients’ exact specifications.
