As we approach the end of 2011, I want to extend my sincere best wishes to our cherished readers, customers, business partners, vendors, team members and your loved ones. May your holidays be happy and joyous.

Even though 2011 was a challenging year for the shipping industry, we were able to  remain profitable and grow bigger and stronger. We take with us into the new year lessons learned on how to survive in a tougher business environment, where only the best can survive. Throughout the year we continued to invest in extensive training of our employees, IT and technology improvements, as well as expansion of our team and facilities.

Let’s make 2012 the best one yet!  “For last year’s words belong to last year’s language and next year’s words await another voice.” T.S. Eliot
