For all of Georgia’s geographical assets and logistics expertise, the importance of staying on top of logistics technology advances remains of paramount concern. Jeff Lantz, president of C.L. Services, Inc. (CLS), puts the matter simply: Growth in the sector is technology-driven.
“We are developing cutting-edge technology to stay ahead of the curve,” says Lantz, adding that CLS continually enhances its technology to share data with shippers both up and down the supply chain.
The Atlanta-based company moves shipments nationally and internationally, and specializes in dry van, flatbed, and temperature-controlled truckload services throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico. An extensive carrier network augments the company’s assets. CLS is an industry leader in providing intermodal and drayage services. Additional services include warehousing and transloading, real-time updates, and shipment tracking.
The company’s location near the Hartfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport provides an ideal command post from which its technology is dispatched into the field. “Atlanta is the hub of the South,” Lantz says. “We’re right in the middle of everything.”
