Mike and Chris met at university as business majors. To earn money, they delivered pizzas and tended bar. They both graduated with a BS in Business Economics and would go their separate ways and professional careers. Both met their wives who also graduated from the same university. Both couples are still married since 1992!
Mike and Chris took a position with the same 3PL. After a short time, they could see the industry was rapidly evolving with emerging technologies, YET their current employer was not evolving. So, Mike and Chris drew up plans to start their own brokerage.
Raised enough capital to launch SLC Nationwide, a Federally licensed, bonded and insured, Freight Transportation & Logistics Management company. From scratch (Literally using pen and paper) they began building a client base who appreciated the improved services and support – many are still clients to this day! They continued investing in technology as it became paramount, adding computers, designing proprietary software and focusing on the “Client First” philosophy that endures to this day. From these modest self-taught beginnings, grew a successful and competitive business.
Forged a Certified Partnership with Bluegrace Logistics for LTL services.
Acquired Beemak Transportation, an asset-based trucking & warehouse. Gratefully hired and retained all five of their employees, dispatchers, and salespeople, all still with SLC to this day.
Acquired Network Freight Lines, an asset-based trucking company. Gratefully hire their key manager, still a key manager to this day.
