FMi Logistics Winter Update December 2017

WINTER – CANADIAN – STRATEGY – TRAGICALLY HIP… how do these relate? Read on and find out….

Winter is upon us, kids have returned to school, summer vacations are a distant memory, business is in high gear as we look towards the approaching Christmas / Holiday Season… its approaching fast so let’s embrace our Winter Season like The Tragically Hip with all the CANADIAN that we are.

I referenced The Tragically Hip here because during my last trip to the great city of Toronto I was working on Strategic Planning initiatives with several clients and carrier partners. At the end of one day, we were fortunate to happen on an impromptu outdoor Hip Tribute concert at Nathan Phillips square in City Hall, it just felt so Canadian… to be in Toronto, working with business partners, and then dancing outdoors to our beloved Hip music, it could have been there or an outdoor rink in Winnipeg that reminded me how special Canada is.

We at FMi Logistics have spent the last several months working on our next period of strategic planning, collaborating with many clients and industry partners to continue working towards our mid and long range goals. We engaged in a fun & robust project, led by a trusted business colleague – Mauro Meneghetti, from Western Management Consultants. Mauro led us through a 2 month exercise spending time on ‘rear view mirror’ work and then using many of the great reports from our customers and partners to help shape our forward vision. Great news! Our clients report we are providing strong services and trust is extremely high! The result is a sharp focus that will guide our team and business in the next several years. While we have many areas to work on strengthening to ensure our service levels continue to excel, we are excited about many of the investments we are making to see our business continue its efforts towards Excellence. Like Jim Collins’ book, “Good to Great”, becoming a GREAT company.

Investment in our team, our TMS and WMS systems with a complete commitment to provide our customers with the best Ground, Ocean and Air transportation services, and to provide the highest level of Commercial Warehousing & Distribution Management is no small undertaking. This is a sneak peek into our strategy, to be your leading service partner as your marketplaces continues to evolve to ever increasing levels of technology, automation and ecommerce applications. Our team at FMi Logistics is ready and excited to continue integrating with you and support the changes that your business is planning, to help you prosper and thrive as the best business in your marketplace – FMi is your trusted Logistics outsourcing solutions partner.
