Over the past few weeks, the #10YearChallenge has been popping up on social media channels with people posting their pictures from 2009 and 2019. It got me thinking that at Crane Worldwide Logistics, we have our own 10-year challenge, or should I say '10-year solution', as we recently celebrated our 10-year anniversary mark.
For many people, aging is not perfect - but in some instances, aging is everything. As I reflect upon how far we've come over the past 10 years, from a challenger brand in the shipping and logistics industry to a mid-sized powerhouse focused on the high touch/high service solutions that our clients have come to rely upon, we have only gotten better and stronger with age. And watch out - the next 10 years will be even more exciting!
The shipping and logistics business has dramatically changed over the past 10 years, and bigger is not always better. Many of our competitors are struggling to keep their organic year-on-year growth, and with the industry consolidating and companies merging, there are less opportunities.
At Crane Worldwide Logistics, we have stayed true to principle that customized solutions meeting individual client needs is a path for success.
And our numbers prove it! Over the first 10 years in businesss, we have expanded to 120 locations in 26 countries with 1,800-plus employees while experiencing 27.45% CAGR.
Our belief is that by consistently investing in our people, our services and the leading-edge technology that we have in-house, we will continue to thrive as a global player, client-focused logistics company with a bright future.
