ICAT Logistics Inc. (ICAT), an agency-based freight forwarder in the U.S., celebrates 20 years in business by focusing on IT enhancements, growing its agency and corporate network and achieving industry recognition milestones.
“We have many accomplishments to note in 2013. We have been fortunate to have caught the attention of several industry publications and news groups, and that has broadened our exposure in the industry,” said Rick Campbell CEO and founder, ICAT. “It all starts with ensuring you have the right people in the right seats and then empower them to reach the mission – help all those we touch grow.”
The company made two major technological advancements during 2013. Overhauling its operating platform involved moving from an AS/400 program to a Web-based program with greatly enhanced international capabilities. ICAT also launched a new website better reflecting its technology focus. The website highlights ICAT’s logistical services and solutions, success stories and provides access to its Web-based customer interface platform.
This year, ICAT experienced significant agency growth within its network. It added offices in Miami and Orlando; State College, Pa.; and San Juan, Puerto Rico as well as partnered with a group focused on military and government transportation. This resulted in ICAT offices in Dulles, Va., Toronto, Canada and Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The company also opened two International offices phasing in before the end of the year in the UK and Chile.
Rick Campbell officially opened ICAT’s doors on Aug. 19, 1993. For 20 years, ICAT has strived to build relationships with teammates, customers and vendor partners that allow each party to grow and prosper upholding its mission “to help all those we touch grow more profitably.” The momentum for growth and change has not slowed down, which has been evidenced by the events of 2013.
