Starting from zero base in the Fall of 1990, between Toronto and Vancouver, only, the evolution of the Company has been rapid – and acceptance by the business furniture manufacturers and resellers gratifying. While we believe we're just at the threshold of our future—and are focussed on further evolution – it's fun to look back at where we've come from.
Our focus on a specialized transportation niche has enabled us to achieve results and customer intimacy that are not possible in general freight operations.
Our full-service, facilities-based, hub-and-spoke operations are able to perform "whatever it takes" – or just as importantly, "whenever it’s needed."
We believe that enthusiastic and committed people, given the best tools available and the right incentives and leadership to perform, will invariably produce superior results.
The concept of Western Logistics was to eliminate the annoying transportation problems facing the business furniture industry, and to present to the manufacturers and resellers a long-term commitment to damage-free, cost-efficient, communicative, and responsive services. These include highly-tuned site deliveries, storage options, distribution, and regional services.
When we make ourselves "invisible" to the customer, we are doing a good job. That’s how we measure ourselves – and how our customers learn to appreciate us.
