Worldwide Logistics Group, an integrated logistics provider, announces the opening of a new branch office in Detroit, Michigan. The announcement follows the recent opening of new branches in Cambodia, Taiwan and the Philippines earlier this month.
The Detroit office marks the 10th US office and the 36th globally, with plans to open two more offices before year end.
“Domestic and global expansion is predicated by our customers’ needs,” said Joe Monaghan, CEO of Worldwide Logistics Group. “There’s strength in numbers. As we grow, we become more effective for our customer base.”
Detroit was selected because it’s a prime logistics gateway to and from the US and Canada via the Ambassador Bridge, which links Detroit with Windsor, Ontario, Canada – one of the busiest international trade routes in North America. Detroit is also a strategic jumping point for global air cargo and domestic rail cargo.
The new Worldwide Logistics Group office is conveniently located within minutes of Detroit Metro Airport and the Detroit rail ramps and will provide the same comprehensive service offerings as all the company’s global branches. This includes sea freight; air freight; land/road intermodal; e-commerce services; warehousing, fulfillment, and distribution services; project cargo; cross trade; PO management and customs brokerage.
With Detroit being the automotive capital of the world, Worldwide Logistics Group can enhance its support system for their customers in the automotive industry. The North American headquarters of major OEM automotive companies such as General Motors, Ford and Stellantis/FCA are less than an hour from the new branch.
“It’s important to support our automotive customers, but there are also other industries the region is known for, including manufacturers of home and business furniture, appliances, chemicals, health and beauty products and a variety of consumer items including glassware, household goods and even dental products,” said Mike Sulak who heads the new branch.
Sulak has over 25 years of experience in domestic and international logistics including positions held at FedEx Trade Networks, American President Lines, DB Schenker and Hapag-Lloyd.
“Logistics operations in Detroit will provide Worldwide Logistics Group with a more local level reach and bring supply chain management expertise to the region,” Sulak explained. “It provides both domestic and international solutions to companies that are looking for a more strategic and streamlined approach to their logistics programs.”
“Mike is a heavy hitter and will be invaluable to our automotive customers,” said Tom Peacock, Executive Vice President at Worldwide Logistics Group. “Everything we do is to service our customers and Mike has the know-how to provide them with the profitable results they expect.”
