Carrier capacity remains an important issue in the logistics industry, and NLM and Express-1, two logistics industry partners, say they are working together to help customers gain the reliable service they need to get their shipments completed. NLM, a third-party logistics provider to the automotive and manufacturing industries and beyond, has expanded its relationship with shipment provider Express-1 to manage and fulfill critical shipments and further augment Express-1’s coverage capabilities.
“At Express-1, our goal is to say ‘yes’ to our customers by successfully serving their shipment requests and needs every time,” says Jeff Curry, president of Buchanan, Mich.-based Express-1. “Our expanded relationship with NLM will provide us the tools and resources to successfully deliver critical shipments on behalf of our customers, which will in turn benefit our drivers with increased load opportunities. This is a major endeavor for us, and one that we feel will provide immediate growth.”
Express-1 already has served as part of NLM’s carrier network for a number of years. The company recently was recognized as one of NLM’s 2007 Coverage Support Award winners for consistently providing a wide range of viable shipment options for customers where equipment capacity constraints exist. The companies say this continued and expanded relationship further emphasizes their commitment to serving customers with the most cost-effective targeted solutions to fit their shipment needs.
“NLM has built a successful enterprise by consistently developing and enhancing the tools and technology that seamlessly integrate with our customer platforms and help both customers and carriers fulfill capacity,” says Greg Humes, president of Detroit-based NLM. “Coupled with the dedication to service and logistics expertise demonstrated by our professionals, our capabilities prove we can meet any customer’s needs. We’re excited to be working more closely with Express-1 and look forward to a successful partnership.”
