UniGroup Introduces Worldwide Logistics
UniGroup provides worldwide logistics for today’s global economy.
UniGroup has 50,000 highly motivated professionals working from 1,300 service centers on 6 continents.
FENTON, MO… UniGroup, the parent company of some of the industry’s leading transportation companies including United Van Lines, Mayflower Transit and UniGroup Worldwide UTS, has introduced a new global logistics company called UniGroup Worldwide Logistics.
For more than half a century, the UniGroup companies have been successfully matching their services with customer needs, providing total transportation solutions including logistics management, product transport and household goods relocation. Thousands of companies worldwide have benefited from UniGroup’s approach to doing business and meeting the challenges of an evolving one-world economy.
UniGroup is a global logistics, transportation and relocation enterprise with a network of agents who together provide $7 billion of best-in-class services through more than 50,000 highly motivated professionals at 1,300 service centers on six continents.
Long before the sophistication required of today’s developing business climate, UniGroup’s premier moving companies, Mayflower Transit and United Van Lines, were hard at work on our nation’s newly-paved highway system to provide the “door-to-door” pickup and delivery service demanded by customers.
From the early days of offering exclusive destination information to its customers to today’s capabilities of single-source accountability for transportation and logistics services around the world, the UniGroup companies have more than kept pace with customer needs. The companies do so by utilizing unprecedented reporting and information systems on the leading edge of the industry’s technological developments. So impressive are these systems that InformationWeek magazine ranks UniGroup among the top 500 companies employing technology to improve overall effectiveness.
With the 2011 introduction of UniGroup Worldwide Logistics, UniGroup is better suited than ever before to provide logistics services to its growing customer base. The new company provides an all-encompassing solution for logistics needs including transportation, project management and warehouse distribution.
“UniGroup Worldwide Logistics is positioned as a total transportation and logistics provider for all of our current corporate clients and to provide tailored solutions to those that have not utilized our services before” said UniGroup President Rich McClure. “In addition to better serving our customers, the launch of UniGroup Worldwide Logistics is an important part of our plan to diversify our company, which is traditionally known for moving household goods. While we have been providing special product solutions for a number of years, we are employing new ways to utilize our skills, assets and third-party relationships to grow our business. Logistics and specialized transportation services are a critical component of our company’s future.”
At the heart of UniGroup Worldwide Logistics is a fleet of elite drivers hauling high value products across the continental U.S. These van operators handle electronics, tradeshow exhibits, store fixtures and a variety of other pad wrapped shipments.
Many of these van operators have dedicated fixed routes which run through UniGroup’s crossdock. This unique crossdock and warehouse facility was built underground in a limestone mine. This one-million-square-foot complex includes the 104,000 square-foot distribution center with natural climate control, tractor parking with plug-ins and driver amenities including restrooms with showers and a driver break room with wireless internet access and a Skype station. Dedicated regional routes are also available.
UniGroup is currently recruiting quality drivers to serve in its high value products fleet. Drivers interested in applying may call Bob Norris at 800-648-7825 or email him at email@example.com. Visit UniGroup at the Mid-America Trucking Show at Booth #66020 in the West Wing.
