Growth Platforms in Transportation and Logistics
Radiant Logistics is executing a strategy to build a global transportation and supply chain management company through the strategic acquisition of best-of-breed non-asset based transportation and logistics providers and represents one of the fastest growing networks in North America. We operate as a non-asset based third-party logistics company providing domestic and international freight forwarding services through a network of company owned and exclusive agent offices across North America. Operating under the Airgroup, Adcom Worldwide, Distribution By Air, Wheels, Service By Air and RLP brands, we service a diversified account base including manufacturers, distributors and retailers using a network of independent carriers and international agents positioned strategically around the world.
As a non-asset based provider of third-party logistics services, we seek to limit our investment in equipment, facilities and working capital through contracts and preferred provider arrangements with various transportation providers. These providers generally extend us favorable rates, minimum service levels, capacity assurances and priority handling status. Our non-asset based approach also allows us to maintain a high level of operating flexibility. The volume of our flow enables us to negotiate attractive pricing with our transportation providers, as well as maintain a relatively flat cost structure for what is typically a highly variable part of the business.
We have made tremendous progress in executing our strategy, leveraging the Radiant platform, to bring value to the agent-based forwarding community through a combination of organic growth and acquisition opportunities. We remain very excited about the opportunity for continued profitable growth through the expansion of our network. Radiant is uniquely positioned in the marketplace to bring value to our network participants by:
- Leveraging our status as a public company to provide our partners with an opportunity to share in the value that they help create.
- Providing a robust platform in terms of people, process and technology which is translating into better purchasing power with our vendors and more sophisticated e-business solutions for our customers.
- Offering a unique opportunity in terms of succession planning and liquidity for our station owners.
