High demand leads to sustained business growth and additional recruitment
Emergency logistics specialist Evolution Time Critical has further expanded its North American office. Since its Atlanta, GA control centre was established late last year, early demand for its premium freight services has exceeded expectations and resulted in the recruitment of additional operations and senior business development staff. The increased demand for Evolution Time Critical’s services reflects the growing awareness of the automotive industry of the need to protect its operations amid challenges posed by production intensity, supply chain complexity and higher risk strategies.
“We are delighted by the performance of our Atlanta office, which during the first eight months of operation has enjoyed a rapid increase in demand; both from existing North American customers and new partners who have identified the benefits of resolutely securing their supply chains using locally-based expertise,” says Evolution Time Critical managing director, Brad Brennan. “Proactive recruitment of high quality operations analysts, who are trained to our exacting standards, is vital to sustain the provision of our award-winning service to a growing marketplace here in North America.”
The growth of its Atlanta office is the third expansion of Evolution Time Critical’s business this calendar year, following establishment of its first US location as a response to increasing demand in the country, and introduction of a Critical Projects service. The latter focuses on the movement of large scale resources globally, such as vehicle tooling or the movement of live production, for a range of manufacturing industries.
“North American-based OEM and supplier customers have stated that the ability to call upon a trusted emergency logistics partner, which has a base here in the USA and is familiar with national infrastructure and regional legislation, has provided existing supply chains with vital support,” continues Brennan. “For example, from Atlanta we have already delivered a range of time-sensitive projects utilising an optimised selection of freight options within the US, across NAFTA, trans-Pacific and trans-Atlantic.
“Expansion of the Atlanta control centre builds on over two decades’ experience gained serving global customers from European bases, and this proven safetynet offers reassurance that enables US customers to proactively streamline processes – they know that if things go wrong, there’s still time to meet deadlines.”
