Every company promises to be
“customer focused” and dedicated to “service excellence” as they seek your
business. Problem is, the promise often ends with those platitudes.
However, you know that the proof is in the performance.
At TLC, we back up our
commitment to service with real performance built on systematic processes
and sophisticated systems. We call it our “Every Step Of the Way”
sm program – because from the moment you ask for a quote to the
time your shipment arrives, we’re with you every step of the way.
TLC Service Processes

ensure that your shipment arrives when you need it. Our First Tier consist

Logistics today isn’t just
about “shipping products.” It’s also about information and communication
that moves with shipment from beginning to end.
TLC has implemented
outstanding shipment management and operational systems to ensure that we
also provide you with information Every Step of the Way. These systems
allow us to build profiles of your unique needs, track shipments,
anticipate problems, communicate with your team and invoice accurately.
But it doesn’t stop when the
