Day & Ross introduces newly formed Supply Chain Solutions division

September 7, 2012 - Day & Ross Transportation Group is pleased to introduce a newly created division, Day & Ross Supply Chain Solutions. This strategic new division combines six current services that formerly operated individually under the Day & Ross Group of Companies.

The groups include non-asset based freight brokerage, intermodal services, air freight forwarding, ocean freight forwarding, Freight Brokerage solutions, and special project/over-dimensional freight forwarding. “This is not new to the Day & Ross suite of services” says Douglas Harrison, president of Day & Ross. He goes on to say “what we’ve done is package these existing services into a more strategic offering for our existing and prospective clients”. The group manages over $120 million of freight today and is growing at a rapid pace.

The Supply Chain Solutions group makes sense for companies requiring a range of services from road and rail transportation within North America and/or ocean and air transportation in and out of North America, seamlessly to fully outsourcing their supply chain.

The Supply Chain Solutions features include non-asset based transportation, single or bundled services, single point of contact, and value-added supply chain expertise to name a few. “This autonomous non asset based group is already one of the largest freight brokerage and international ocean service providers in Canada.

Through a focused consultative approach Day & Ross Supply Chain Solutions can develop a customized approach for a portion of a company’s supply chain or manage the entire supply chain for a client who is looking to outsource its requirements in full” says Mike Chisholm, Executive Vice-President of the newly formed group.

Featuring a responsive organization that includes customized and specialized services, this solutions based group boasts industry expertise, leading edge technology and world-class talent, setting them apart from their competitors, such as smaller 4PL’s, larger international 4PL’s, asset-based carriers, and single service providers. Specific services offered through this new division include:

- 4PL services and full Supply Chain management
- Freight Brokerage
- Over Size/Dimensional project movements
- Transportation Management – all modes
- Intermodal
- Air / ocean services
