THE GREAT THAW: WELCOMING SPRING

 

The winter of 2013-14 was record breaking.  Feet of snow, ice and below zero temperatures were rampant and unrelenting.  Transportation was de-railed, customers were not buying, manufacturing was halted and businesses everywhere scrambled to find ways to deal with the freeze. 

As the ground softens and flowers bloom the economy is also reawakening.  There is a rush to catch up, to get back to business and people are looking at operations and procedures with a fresh outlook. 

An experienced 3PL can help you navigate this economic thaw.  Finding a logistics provider who can provide the dexterity to deal with global climate crises quickly at affordable rates can be the difference between a successful year and one that is frostbitten.  Finding a logistics provider who can provide all that plus family values, connections to decades old relationships with key resources and prime real estate can breathe new life into your business. 

 We'd like to share a story with you.  Early in the spring an ingredient shipper contacted Nexus with an urgent need for dry storage.  They also needed access to international shipping of heavy weight containers.  Within three weeks Nexus was on boarding our newest customer and shipping out 70 heavy weight containers per day from our exclusive access to the Chicago Land Bridge.  Flexibility grounded in foundation and infrastructure enabled Nexus to put together a rock solid intermodal program for a complex customer in under a month's time. 

Things change rapidly in this economy and the ability to make sure-footed moves and pivots is essential.  Nexus is so proud of all it has accomplished in its 34 years of business and we'd love to share that success with you.
