December 19, 2018
Clients and Partners, around this time of year, I always find myself reflecting on the successes and challenges of the past 12 months. Overall, 2018 was another strong year for Crane Worldwide Logistics marked by tremendous growth and change. It was a monumental year as well, we celebrated our 10thanniversary and became a $1B revenue company. None of that could have been possible without the fantastic support of each and every one of you. Thank you! In a rapidly evolving environment, filled with geopolitical and economic uncertainty, we continued to significantly expand the business across all geographic, product, and vertical markets.
In 2018, we made major investments in the growth of the company. We opened new offices in Saudi Arabia, Japan, and Myanmar. We also added new facilities in Dallas, Minneapolis, Columbus, Boston, Toronto, Detroit, San Francisco, Harrisburg, Kansas City and Savannah. These expansions have increased our warehouse footprint in North America alone by over 1.5M square feet. Additionally, 2018 witnessed the launch of VISION, our global CRM tool. VISION provides greater visibility to upcoming opportunities at Crane Worldwide Logistics. It will play an integral role in coordinating our sales and marketing efforts so we more efficiently direct leadership, resources, and products to better serve our global client base.
Before ushering in a new year, I would like to thank each of you again for helping make 2018 a success and hoping it was the same for each of you. Have a happy, safe, and healthy holiday season and look forward to seeing many of you in 2019.
John Magee, President & CEO
