If your business has ever shipped products to its customers, you’ve played a part in our country’s massive logistics industry. Logistics generates billions in revenue each year, and this number is projected to grow — experts predict the industry will reach $1.5 trillion in annual revenue by 2026. With such an incredible upside, it’s easy to see why countless companies are scrambling to find the best logistics partners. This underscores the importance of choosing a logistics provider with a proven track record of success and customer satisfaction.
At UCW Logistics, we’ve been meeting clients’ needs for over 95 years, and we understand how vital logistics are for your business. In this blog, we’ll share what we’ve learned over all these years, including why effective logistics are essential, why our approach to logistics matters, how our transportation management system (TMS) allows us to do more for you, and what makes our company different from other logistics and freight management companies.
