HISTORY & VISION
“I was extremely successful at providing value for my clients and colleagues at both a large top 10 freight brokerage and years later at a start-up freight brokerage, turning weaknesses into strengths and using my strengths to take those organizations to new heights.” However, I felt like I had many limitations at both, which led to my starting Ciao Logistics!
Ciao, meaning hello and goodbye in Romanian and Italian, was the obvious name! It was time to say goodbye to limitations and hello to world-class solutions! Ciao Logistics was a dream come true where those limitations were finally eliminated to ensure both clients and carriers experienced a level of service that is revolutionary!
I am beyond excited to bring Ciao Logistics to the masses, with my main goal being to become a true one-stop shop and not just claim to be one like so many other companies claim to be! Ciao Logistics partnered up with Ace Forwarding Inc., which was founded in 1994, to achieve this goal!
Ace Forwarding is an asset-based trucking company and global freight forwarder! There are many large brokerages and clients that rely on Ace’s expedited and air freight expertise to get their shipments moved both domestically and internationally!
I can now say with confidence that Ciao Logistics will be the last logistics provider you will ever need to add to your network, and over time you will find that the solutions, expertise, and round-the-clock service will make it so that other logistics providers will not be able to compete with Ciao!
Your other logistics providers will be outworked and outhustled day by day, week by week, month by month, weekend by weekend, and holiday by holiday! I do not take time off so that your organization experiences a stress-free supply chain when you make Ciao Logistics your primary carrier!
“I appreciate every single one of you, and I look forward to proving how Ciao Logistics will be your domestic and international one-stop shop for decades to come!”
