Talaria Transportation, a privately held company specializing in secure, compliant logistics for the legal cannabis industry, recently announced new products and services.

CEO and Founder Ari Raptis has built a notable transportation portfolio. Alongside Talaria, Raptis uses a holistic approach to cover all aspects of transportation with his additional companies, National Secure Transport (secure cash management and logistics services for cash-intensive businesses and banks) and Melly Home Delivery (cannabis home delivery services). 

Raptis has announced several updates and innovations for his companies this year, including launching a new distribution platform in New York and New Jersey that allows the company to warehouse product and manage products for brands and dispensaries. 

National Secure Transport is expanding into seven new states to grow from 29 to 36 markets, while Melly Home Delivery is expanding into Missouri, Maryland, New Jersey, and New York before the end of the year. 

Focused on safety and security for a high-risk, highly regulated industry, Raptis and team have created a unique approach to risk management through advanced telematics, safety-forward vehicle conversions, the use of retired law enforcement, and the requirement of two drivers per car, among other strategies. 

With an emphasis on sustainability, both Talaria and National Secure Transport have incorporated route optimization telematics to keep drivers on the most fuel-efficient routes and minimize their environmental impact. The telematics also helps keep operational costs down.
