The trucking and freight logistics industry in North America is complex and competitive.
It requires considerable investments in road equipment, distribution centres and all kinds of technology to manage deliveries and inventories in real time.
Other critical factors to consider include the fact that:
- Energy prices are volatile and have a significant impact on transport and warehousing costs.
- The management process, legislation and regulations are constantly changing.
- Human resources are scarce and take a long time to train.
- The selection of complementary distribution partners to effectively and efficiently cover North America is a strategic decision.
Our account managers use their knowledge and creativity to develop personalized solutions to overcome our clients’ freight and distribution logistics issues.
Our goal is to position our team as an extension of your own teams to manage your supply and distribution chain.
