Wrapping Up a Great Year for MetroGistics

As 2015 winds down, we wanted to take a moment to reflect on all the happenings at MetroGistics in what has been our best year yet.

In addition to finalizing our merger with McNutt Automotive Logistics, we experienced growth in many areas of the company. Following is a brief recap.

Sales

Our sales team added three new OEM clients, which means we are now doing business with all new car manufacturers in the United States. We also added more than 100 new auto dealerships as customers.

Growing Staff

In 2015, our operations team added four new dispatchers and two order entry professionals. On the sales side, we added three new sales reps.

Our management team was bolstered with the addition of Dave Larson as executive vice president of business development, and Bob Brinson as vice president of finance. William Billiter, co-founder and managing partner, recently commented that Bob’s hire “rounds out our impressive management team.”

Carrier Network

Even with a very strict onboarding process to maintain high standards, our carrier compliance team added 1,054 new carriers to our network this year.

Technology

As pioneers in using technology to optimize the transport experience, we always have an eye on innovations that improve service. In 2015, our technology team developed an in-house transportation management system for some of our larger clients, and upgraded and launched new customer sites and portals.

Community Involvement

MetroGistics is committed to being a good corporate citizen and giving back to our community. In addition to our annual Monster Mash fundraising event and Metro Giving Back program (which provides a monthly donation to charities selected by our employees), we were a Gold Sponsor of the 11th Annual A Cause for Paws Masquerade Ball benefitting Helping Strays, and a Bronze Sponsor of the 23rd Annual March of Dimes Signature Chefs Auction. We also donated toys and funds to the First Annual Arch City Riders Toy Drop.

During this holiday season, we wish to express our gratitude to our employees, partners and customers. We send you our good wishes for safe celebrations and a prosperous 2016.
