FLS is a trusted logistics powerhouse that provides bespoke freight transport solutions to a wide variety of sectors. In construction, for example, FLS aims to make supply chains leaner and more agile to ensure time critical freight gets delivered on time and in pristine condition. In healthcare, it supports compliance with quality and security standards while helping reduce costs by providing a full range of logistical services that meet the needs of hospitals and their unique sites.
Likewise, in recycling FLS helps manufacturers and retailers achieve operational efficiencies by providing comprehensive end-to-end services that include domestic collection, recyclability at MRFs or transfer stations and distribution centre pick-n-pack or direct-to-store shipping. This helps them keep pace with stricter production schedules and comply with regulations for environmental protection and food safety.
Market shifts over the past year - coupled with the prospect of a recession - have inspired many shippers to take a more cost-driven approach to transportation decision-making in recent months. These shippers are aiming to recoup COVID-riddled costs, create breathing room in budgets and protect against a possible demand free fall.
FLS, a leading cross-border 3PL that specializes in truckload brokerage, has further expanded its capacity and network with the acquisition of Scott Logistics Corp. This transaction, which is a key milestone in the company's growth strategy, will increase its scale and density in a highly fragmented U.S. TL brokerage space by adding eight branches and five agent locations. The combined company will have a total of 10 offices across the United States and Canada.
