But look closely and you'll probably see our fingerprints on a wide variety of items in your household. Things like your television, the bananas you bought yesterday, and the bottled water sitting in your fridge. Whether we provide complete supply chain management for our customers or just zero in on a specific section of their shipping processes, our goal is to steer their products through the supply chain and into your hands.
It sounds simple, but with over 42,000 customers and 56,000 contract carriers worldwide, what we do is no small task. There is an intense need for organization, management, and execution to ensure that products arrive on time at their destinations.
We're different than other third party logistics (3PL) companies because we're non-asset based, which means we don't own the equipment that moves our customers' products. This works to our customers' advantage since we are free to pick the ideal mode of transportation instead of focusing on keeping our own equipment moving. We aim to provide the best transportation and logistics solutions for every customer, every time.
We have wholly-owned offices around the world including locations in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe, Asia, South America, and the Middle East. To see a map and a list of our office locations, click here.
