This story is typical of LSInc’s proven track record in Transportation Management. We are experts at helping our customers assure that material is available when and where it is needed. From meeting routine transportation requirements to handling emergency shipments, we facilitate the process. By air, rail, ocean and highway, if a way exists to make the delivery, we find it.
LSInc recently partnered with Intermodal FCL, Inc. (IFCL). IFCL is a transportation, warehousing, and supply chain management business based in Huntersville, NC. IFCL’s mission statement is “Connecting our strategic partners to the global marketplace through superior and innovative supply chain management solutions.” Through our combined capabilities, there is no transportation challenge too large or complex.
LSInc works with the military services and private sector transporters, plus state and other federal agencies. For the last five years, LSInc has served as the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) Transportation Officer. In this role, we are responsible for providing the full spectrum of transportation advice, support and service.
