20 Years and Counting

20 Years and Counting –

Looking back (momentarily) over 20 years as an industry innovator.

At the bottom of this message is a little seal, marking the 20 year anniversary of TOTALogistix. Twenty years ago, operating a smallish freight brokerage business, we realized our customers needed more than just putting loads and trucks together. This was the dawn of the third party logistics field, and we helped originate and define it.

We’ve seen sweeping change since we started. Our industry, and business as a whole, has been transformed, most notably by the globalization of supply chains, and the explosion of information technology. Savvy managers have come to realize the vital importance of logistics, that the future battle for market supremacy will not be between enterprises, it will be between supply chains.

TOTALogistix grew and evolved to meet and anticipate our clients’ needs. We brought in key players from all facets of the logistics and supply chain world to create the best internal talent pool. We developed innovative proprietary software systems to speed information as well as freight, and give top executives actionable data and the ability to run “what if” scenarios.

Much of what we do today was unimagined when we started out, but one thing that has never changed is our emphasis on service. The value of our service in the eyes of our clients is what’s allowed TOTALogistix to succeed and grow for the past 20 years. We thank you for your support, and look forward to helping you meet the logistics challenges of the next 20 years, whatever shape they take.
