ITS is pleased to announce the appointment of Denise Smith and Mary Pileggi to its logistics division, commencing October 6, 2014. Operating from a new facility at 1100 Haultain Court in Mississauga, this dynamic duo bring decades of transportation and logistics experience to the company.
ITS President, Rob Haggarty states, “We looked at many senior industry people before bringing on Denise and Mary. Together, they will dramatically increase our presence in the logistics game. Both have significant transportation expertise and are super people to work with.”
The new facility, located in the heart of the GTA transportation community, will allow ITS to fully immerse the company into the steadily growing freight management, freight forwarding and logistics segment. The enhanced strength of the division will provide greater choice and convenience for customers, including import and export of customers’ air and ocean shipments.
ITS primarily serves the truckload requirements of customers between Ontario and Quebec and between these provinces and the USA states east of the Mississippi. The expanded logistics operation will add capacity and coverage in these core markets and add LTL and truckload service throughout Canada, USA and Mexico. Van, Reefer, Heated, Flat deck and even Intermodal services will become a regular third party activity and growth area for ITS.
VP of Business Development for ITS, Mike Crawford adds, “I’ve worked with both Denise and Mary earlier in my career and I’m thrilled to have them on our team. We never really sold logistics to any degree historically…that’s about to change!”
