Why Choose GLX?

Values:

At Grane our values are the basis of everything we do, and are the foundation on which GLX is founded. We bring a new mentality to an old business so our customers can gain the benefits of a flexible 3PL provider without any of the traditional concerns.

Infrastructure:

Grane’s world class infrastructure, (over 250 trucks, 500 trailers, 600,000 sq.ft. of warehousing stretching from Atlanta to Chicago), gives GLX a truly unique base to work from. By leveraging the strength
of the spot market to move freight at the right cost and coordinating that with the capabilities Grane has always had – we can offer customers the best of both worlds. We can move a load off the dock ASAP, hold it in one of our facilities, then ship it across country on the equipment of one of our partner carriers, seamlessly tracking and managing the process every step of the way.

lesson. When we hear our customers asking for more options, more flexibility and greater efficiency – we listen.

Further, we can offer the ability track loads, get P.O.D’s, or check status to our customers through a simple on-line interface. These same tools allow our team to stay “connected” to their customers and their shipments wherever or whenever they need to – including through the use of smartphone apps to track, trace and even get P.O.D’s from carriers.

Carriers:

The final piece of the puzzle is building a base of strong carrier partners that share our values and focus on service under all circumstances. We have a carrier vetting process that ensures our partners are
safe, well insured, in good financial standing and have spotless service records. This data is maintained in real time through the use of industry leading carrier data providers.
