McDonough, Georgia (October 10, 2016) – Bennett International Group, LLC (Bennett) today announced an independent business venture – the creation of BOSS Engineered Logistics, LLC (BEL), a non-asset-based transportation logistics firm. BEL was formed after a customer need was identified by Bennett’s specialized and heavy haul business, Bennett Motor Express, LLC for Bennett to be able to offer more neutral third-party logistics (3PL) solutions.
BEL joins Bennett’s portfolio of business units for domestic and international shipping, trucking, drive-away, and portable buildings, but will be marketed as a separate brand backed and supported by Bennett and operated independently. It is led by highly experienced transportation professionals who have demonstrated expertise in engineering customized transportation solutions and negotiating contracts for both one-time freight shipping and managed transportation services to achieve cost-effectiveness without sacrificing quality.
“We are seeing a rising demand by customers for 3PLs that are non-asset-biased,” says BEL President Jim Handoush, who leads BEL with more than 30 years of industry experience. “Many companies today are challenged with a lack of technology, volume buying power and visibility, and they need flexible options. We are starting the BEL brand to engineer customized solutions that result in the best rates possible, whether it is through Bennett or another vendor.”
BEL offers both brokerage of individual freight shipments for trucking, intermodal, rail and international freight shipping and a suite of managed transportation services to complement clients’ existing transportation resources. Managed transportation services include warehouse management, project management and supply chain services supported by multiple options for best-in-class transportation management system (TMS) and warehouse management system (WMS) platforms. BEL’s experts continually deliver data-driven insights that enable customers to adapt to constantly changing scenarios and ensure optimal decision-making at any given time.
In today’s market, more companies view 3PLs, not only as an investment to reduce transportation and logistics costs, but also to help drive business, says Handoush. “Our goal is to form meaningful partnerships that empower our customers to focus on their core competencies and business objectives without being weighed down and hindered by day-to-day supply chain logistics matters that they do not have the resources to manage optimally,” he says. “At BEL, our approach is to be viewed as an extension of our customers’ transportation management team so they can focus more on growing their business.”
Bennett has achieved a worldwide reputation as a quality focused logistics leader, unique in its ability to tap best-in-class companies and couple their expertise with logistics support resources from affiliate Bennett companies. This logistics support linked with a dedicated information technology team enables the BEL team of subject matter experts to design, engineer and deliver tailored and dependable non-biased supply chain solutions.
