ST. LOUIS (August 8, 2011) - UniGroup, Inc., the parent company of some of the industry's leading transportation companies including United Van Lines, Mayflower Transit and UniGroup Worldwide UTS, has introduced a new global logistics company called UniGroup Worldwide Logistics. The announcement was made by UniGroup President Richard McClure.
UniGroup Worldwide Logistics specializes in tailored supply chain solutions with a variety of global services including truckload, less-than-truckload, flatbed and specialty transportation; freight forwarding; distribution services; project management, IT relocations and third-party logistics. The company is uniquely qualified to provide these logistics services with more than 1,300 service centers in 146 countries around the world.
United Van Lines and Mayflower Transit have been trusted providers of specialized transportation and 3PL services for more than 50 years. UniGroup Worldwide Logistics is building on that experience and strong customer service record. By combining the assets of the van lines and the relationships with third party transportation providers, UniGroup Worldwide Logistics is better able to customize global solutions for its customers at a competitive price.
"UniGroup Worldwide Logistics is positioned as a total transportation and logistics provider for all of our current corporate clients and to provide tailored solutions to those that have not utilized our services before" said McClure. "In addition to better serving our customers, the launch of UniGroup Worldwide Logistics is an important part of our plan to continue to diversify our company, which is traditionally known for moving household goods. While we have been providing special product solutions for a number of years, with the current state of the economy and U.S. mobility near all-time lows, we are launching new ways to utilize our skills, assets and third party relationships during these challenging economic times. Logistics and specialized transportation services are a critical component of our company's future."
