Global leader celebrates decade of international growth and expansion
HOUSTON, TEXAS, USA, August 8, 2018 — Today, Crane Worldwide Logistics celebrates 10 years of successful business operations. The logistics firm–originally launched by Jim Crane in Houston– has grown to be a solutions powerhouse with over 1,800 employees with 120 locations in 26 countries spanning all major global geographies.
“To say that I am grateful of my team’s success over the past ten years would be an understatement,” said John Magee, President and CEO of Crane Worldwide Logistics. “I cannot thank enough all of those who have helped us along the way, including our clients, suppliers and all of our worldwide personnel who make it happen every day.”
According to Bloomberg, 8 out of 10 companies fail within the first 18 months. This is a significant achievement given that Crane Worldwide Logistics launched in 2008 during the global financial crisis. Founding Executive Chairman, Jim Crane said, “We have remained true to our vision and have built a growth focused organization that challenges conventional thinking and at 10 years young we are just getting started. By regularly investing in our people, our service and our innovative technology, we will continue to thrive as a multinational, client-focused logistics company with a very bright future ahead.”
Over the last decade, Crane Worldwide Logistics has dramatically expanded its service offering from achieving Jim Crane’s vision of being a global player in the competitive global freight management and contract logistics services sector. By providing fully customized service solutions and acting with a keen sense of urgency to all requests, Crane Worldwide Logistics is changing the industry, bringing innovation and proprietary technology to the forefront of our client’s operations.
Crane Worldwide Logistics believes that it is important to be responsible corporate citizens and positively impact the world around us. Through Crane Cares, in honor of our ten-year anniversary, we will be helping the homeless worldwide. From local food donations, to fundraising, and volunteering at shelters, Crane employees are stepping up in 2018 to help the homeless which is a global issue that touches all of us.
“We are proud to partner with Crane Worldwide Logistics for our supply chain solutions. Their knowledgeable team and focus on the details of each client’s business will propel them into the next ten years and beyond,” said Marc Schopp, Vice President, Global Logistics and Distribution, Entrust Datacard. “We look forward to seeing what the future has in store and how Crane Worldwide Logistics will continually evolve the industry.”
