Respect for drivers and the trucking industry is at our core, making us a “3PL of Choice” with the top carriers and equipment providers nationwide. Our mission is to provide our clients with the highest quality customer service and transportation solutions while providing transparency and visibility to their supply chains. We feature fully integrated Trucking, Maritime, and Warehousing capabilities allowing us to seamlessly handle any project large or small from end to end.
A Foundation of Service
Koch Logistics has built its reputation on a foundation of quality and customer service while growing into one of the Midwest’s largest privately held logistics firms and was recently recognized as one of Minnesota’s Top Places to Work. We continue to put an increased focus on technology and customer friendly automation without losing our principles of proactive communication and personal service. We blend that technology with our capable and knowledgeable staff to seamlessly facilitate communications between vendors, carriers and other third parties. We pride ourselves on having a highly experienced operational staff so our clients can trust that their needs are being managed by people they can count on.
In 2021 our warehousing division, JBS Logistics, acquired a facility in Los Angeles and expanded its existing footprint in Chicago by 50%. When combined with other existing facilities in Minneapolis and Nashville, JBS is managing just over 2M square feet of space. Capabilities within these facilities include full-service distribution, consolidation, and fulfillment along with state-of-the-art climate-controlled food grade space in certain locations. Our newest building in California significantly boosts our capabilities on the West Coast and will provide growth opportunities to our complementary transportation related solutions in that market.
In addition to standard shipping and warehousing services; we have an established expertise in managing the complex pickup and delivery needs related to site openings, fixture resets and rollouts, facility remodels and other complex projects. Clients both large and small have trusted Koch Retail Services to handle the complexities and tight deadlines associated with these projects. Our experts understand the coordination and communication required to successfully complete your projects on-time and on-budget.
While not easy this past year, Koch Maritime has been very successful satisfying our client’s needs throughout 2021 even during these times of unprecedented supply chain disruptions and ocean shipping delays. Our creative and nimble team has been able to secure bookings using our established network of international carriers and agents as well as keep clients informed and up to date as to shipment status and delivery windows. Our Maritime group continues to see significant growth and works in tandem with our domestic shipping teams giving us the ability to provide comprehensive logistics and global supply chain management.
