Where We've Been
Founded in 2004, Great Lakes Cold Logistics was formed to provide nationwide LTL consolidation services from North East Ohio. While many transportation providers moved away from equipment ownership to brokerage services, it was Great Lakes Cold Logistics mission to be the premier LTL & TL provider by ensuring state-of-the art asset based transportation, specifically refrigerated transportation. With this approach to quality and outstanding service, Great Lakes Cold Logistics experienced substantial growth and recognition in the marketplace. With this recognition, GLCL was approached to expand beyond it's Ohio based operations to provide supply chain services for other cold storage operations and producers.
Being a small, family owned company, we understand the complexity of today’s competitive marketplace and strive to form long-term partnership bonds with our customers. We take the time to fully understand the specific needs of each customer and are not afraid to custom tailor our supply chain offerings to meet each customer’s competitive requirements. Although we started our company focused on nationwide LTL Consolidation, we have grown our services to include all facets of Refrigerated Supply Chain Solutions. Given the opportunity, we are confident we can improve your supply chain regardless of size or complexity. With our network of cold storage partners and strategically located terminals, we have a solution.
The success of our business philosophy and dramatic growth led to our name change- COLDSTREAM Logistics, now offering services from multiple terminal locations throughout the country.
