Unified Logistics


Our Company

Our Unified Platform benefits the “Craftsman” that provide highly specialized logistics services. We are seeking to be known as the company that engineers solutions to complex needs, and executes flawlessly at a reasonable cost.

We sell locally and deliver globally.

Our systems make real-time data ubiquitous, consistent, and easy to retrieve.

The global market for specialized freight forwarding and expedited services is extremely fragmented and includes thousands of smaller highly specialized logistics service providers.

The trends toward lower inventories and increasingly-complex industry requirements and the impact of global sourcing in the supply chain are driving shippers to require more time-sensitive, dependable and custom-engineered global logistics service solutions.

We are currently partnering and “unifying” smaller specialized logistics service companies that provide the highest-value services to shippers.

We believe specialized acumen and broad institutional knowledge are the key, value drivers and the most valuable asset of specialized providers.
