Swan & Hercules Global Logistics (SHGL) is a dynamic, rapidly growing international logistics company offering comprehensive transportation, logistics, e-commerce and supply chain solutions, tailored to meet our clients' specific needs. The foundation of our business model was built on the origins of World Super Services (WSS), a company originally started in 1978. For nearly 30 years, WSS provided logistics services for many food distributors and retailers in the U.S. and, at one time, had over 2,000 employees providing third party services on site at over 84 warehouses in 32 states. In 2005, one of WSS's largest clients requested that leadership research the potential for providing a comprehensive logistics end-to-end service that would streamline its international supply chain. The goal was to create an international solution tailored to help that client better manage the flow of products from the manufacturers in Asia, through the distribution centers in the U.S., and, ultimately, into its retail stores. WSS was sold in 2007 but the concept and desire to build an international platform to support the supply chain needs of large retailers remained with the ownership. After nearly 2 years of research, development, and testing, the SHGL business model was successfully implemented for a key client in 2010, creating a unique, end-to-end international logistics solution for our client, built on concepts of efficiency, affordability, and quality of service. Through strategic growth initiatives, SHGL now offers those same value added services to all of its customers, providing customizable and comprehensive supply chain management solutions around the globe.
SHGL offers unparalleled experience and service in logistics and supply chain solutions. Our management and core team is a collaboration of highly skilled individuals with a collective broad range of industry, business, and professional experience, including many members of the core team that helped establish and grow the company formerly known as World Super Services, Inc. At SHGL, we pride ourselves on a mix of leadership backgrounds and experience that enhances our ability to exceed our customers' expectations and adapt to industry changes.
