Order Logistics, Inc. (ODLG) today announced the acquisition of JAT Transportation and GT Logistics. Order Logistics, Inc. (http://www.orderlogistics.com) has completed the acquisition of JAT Transportation and GT Logistics. Headquartered in Champaign, IL, JAT Transportation (“JAT”) operates a centralized operations center for truckload shipments. Our fleet of company-owned tractors, well-maintained trailers, and trained and experienced drivers makes it possible for JAT to set the standard in terms of safe, fast, reliable service to ensure that our customers' business operates effectively in today's just-in-time environment.
As shippers search for ways to reduce inventories and lower their "total landed" costs, more of them are moving to dedicated services contracts with carriers to ensure capacity, on-time service and achievement of service location requirements. JAT's dedicated operations offers 24 hours per day, 7 day per week customer service coverage for those customers that have unique requirements. This truckload carrier focuses on short- to medium-haul trips, averaging about 550 miles. JAT carries everything from inbound supplies for plant locations, to consumer goods, paper products, and finished manufactured goods.
In addition to utilizing the supply-chain solutions provided via Order Logistics, Inc. with JAT’s existing customer base, JAT also offers shippers a wide range of customized global transportation, logistics and supply chain management capacity solutions via Global Transport (“GT Logistics”). Our relationships with specialized, LTL, truckload, rail, ocean, and air cargo carriers provide more solutions and greater flexibility in delivering products in the global sourcing environment. That means our logistics professionals are free to evaluate our individual customer’s needs, especially service and cost expectations, and provide the best solution options to help you meet their transportation objectives.
“We are pleased to add JAT and GT Logistics to our value-added solution. With the addition of these entities, Order Logistics delivers just the right mix of proprietary technology, data management, supply chain solutions and transportation services. The information about the contents of a shipment and piece-level details are as important as the load itself. Real-time information helps our customers effectively manage supply and demand in the global marketplace,” stated Brian Griffin, President of Order Logistics, Inc.
