CHICAGO, Feb. 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Redwood Logistics, a full-service, strategically integrated logistics provider, announced today the launch of a new parcel service that will provide customers with an integrated, cost-saving solution for parcel shipping. Redwood’s parcel service implements a proven process that combines initial benchmarking and consulting, procurement strategy and execution, as well as ongoing analytics and reporting.
The parcel service addition bolsters Redwood’s core competencies, including multimodal brokerage, freight management, warehousing and dedicated distribution, transportation management system (TMS) implementation and integration expertise.
“E-commerce continues to emerge as a vital growth channel for many of our customers,” said Mark Yeager, CEO of Redwood Logistics. “Having a parcel offering is an important and strategically integrated step to support our customers through our freight management platform.
