Final Mile Logistics Expanding

Mercury Air CargoChris Dale, CEO of Final Mile Logistics, is excited about the recent expansion of the company – with new contracts, progress in the oil and gas division, and increase in facility space.

An important new customer for Final Mile Logistics is the Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), an American company that provides government services and information technology support.  SAIC recently re-upped their contract with the U.S. government who will be buying almost $1 billion worth of tires from SAIC.

“We picked up a significant amount of air freight business from SAIC,” says Dale, “with Final Mile Logistics handling one-third of this new business for SAIC.”

The tires will be delivered to multiple Asian and European destinations, including Japan, Korea, and Germany.

In addition, Final Mile Logistics started an oil and gas division in December 2018, based in Houston and headed up by Michael Beelar, Director of Sales and Operations. Beelar is charged with developing and growing the company’s oil and gas customer footprint.

According to Dale, “It’s going well so far with our working on getting new oil and gas customers on board with Final Mile Logistics.”

The oil and gas division is in negotiations with Halliburton and Baker Hughes to provide freight forwarding services in the Middle East, based on their expertise and local contacts in that region.

According to Beelar, “The oil and gas industry has been a challenge in Q1, 2019 because crude prices have not stabilized. However, some of our core target customers have been practicing lean supply chain strategies to some extent. This gives us an opportunity to consult and help them further reduce costs. We have seen some unique similarities between our federal government clients and global exploration and production companies of which we feel we can take advantage.”

Lastly, Final Mile Logistics is continuing to find ways to best maximize their facility footprint in Atlanta. They are doing so by subleasing warehouse space, as well as utilizing the parking lot.

“Our pipeline has never been better as far as the opportunities we have in front of us now. We are aggressive in pursuing ways to grow,” states Dale.
