Rally Logistics Expanding in 3rd Party Logistics Market
WOODBRIDGE, ON - As we make our way into the second half of 2014, Rally Logistics, Inc. is expanding its footprint in the 3rd Party Logistics market. Headquartered in Toronto, the company recently evolved its operations by becoming an asset-based transporter.
Joe Rubini, Co-Founder and President, states, “Venturing into the world of assets seemed both a necessary and organic step. A growing number of clients had asked us to quote seasonal pricing; unfortunately, when dealing with equipment owned by other parties, different variables affect pricing, some of which are out of our control. As an asset-based carrier now with predominately fixed overhead costs, we can effectively give a fixed rate. It gives our clients one more reason to deal with us."
So what’s the plan for this evolving 3PL company? “The plan is to continue building and take this company to the next level with the leadership of my partner, John Corsetti, and myself. We’ve been very fortunate to have aligned ourselves with people in many parts of Canada and the United States. Whether it be opening other branch operations through hiring, partnering or acquiring, we are always looking outside of our own four walls to enhance and improve our business model."
Currently, Rally’s North American shipping reach extends from Newfoundland to British Columbia, from Florida to Southern California, and everything in between. Canada-to-Mexico routes have yet to be strategized, but the task is on the horizon.
“Transportation brokers are an integral part of any company that buys f.o.b. or sells delivered, even more so in the produce business. It is incredibly valuable to have a balance between both asset-based and third-party logistics providers handling your transportation requirements. See a need, fill a need,” Joe reflects.
Congratulations on the continuing growth for Rally Logistics!
