SEKO Logistics Targets Further Growth and Expansion in 2018

SEKO Logistics Targets Further Growth and Expansion in 2018
Logistics Manager

2017 was a very successful year in terms of growth for SEKO Logistics and the company is looking to continue expanding their global footprint in 2018. The company will recruit new partners and make further acquisitions in both the technology and forwarding sectors as part of their strategy.

William J. Wascher has recently taken over as the company Chairman and will head up this strategy. James Gagne President of SEKO Logistics will also assume the additional role of CEO. Mr. Gagne became president of SEKO in January last year; he replaced Mr. Wascher who had been president and CEO since 2002.

The appointment of Mr. Gagne has now allowed Mr. Wascher to align his focus to SEKO’s strategic vision, over the last year new ways to continue the growth of the business and open opportunities for their strategic partners and employees have been identified.

Mr. Gagne about the SEKO’s strategic plans said this: “We are in the most exciting period for SEKO in its 40-plus year history, with new opportunities being presented to us around the world by customers, partners and suppliers. We are continuing to focus on organic growth but this alone is not going to be fast enough to satisfy our ambitions in the coming years. We couldn’t ask for a better qualified Chairman than Bill Wascher to be working full-time on ensuring we continue to leverage our reputation as a supply chain disruptor which isn’t afraid to do things differently to benefit our customers and which is ready to be judged on its results.”

“We’re ready to grow at an even faster pace as our upcoming news will demonstrate. We’re evaluating tuck-in acquisitions, partners and ‘out of the box’ expansion opportunities. This includes engaging with small independent forwarders that want to hear about the value of joining our network as well as technology companies in the logistics space that want to join forces with SEKO. We may partner, we may buy. The first thing for other companies to realize is that we’re ready to listen – and able to demonstrate what coming together with SEKO can do for them and their customers,” added Mr. Wascher.
