Relationship Focused, Results-Driven
We are often asked: What makes Walker SCM unique among global logistics and transportation service providers? While our competitors tend to offer overly complicated responses to this question, we feel the answer is fairly simple.
Though small in size, Walker offers a wealth of knowledge in all facets of global transportation, logistics optimization, and supply chain integration. Since 1989, we’ve built a track record of success in global air & ocean freight forwarding (inbound/outbound), value-added warehousing & distribution, inventory management & fulfillment, specialty packaging, customs brokerage, procurement, consolidation/deconsolidation, domestic trucking, supplier relationship management, and network visibility. Our senior leadership team alone offers over 300 years of combined industry experience, accumulated during decades of working with the world’s largest service providers.
We believe that customer service is king, and operate our business according to the 5 R’s of relationship building: respect, responsiveness, responsibility, resilience and results. Our staff members are, by their nature, highly customer-oriented, approaching every request or challenge with a can-do attitude. By taking pride in their ability to serve our customers, the Walker team operates as a confident, consistent unit – a team you can trust – perfectly suited to meet high expectations and to cultivate the long-term client relationships that have become our hallmark.
While relationships are vital, we understand that results are what count. On the strength of our long-term industry partnerships, Walker has the luxury of being as resourceful as our biggest competitors in terms of purchase power, while retaining the flexibility and innovative spirit of a niche provider. Ultimately, our performance is our proof, as our history of stress-free, on time launches attests.
Last but not least, we are one of the few certified Minority Business Enterprises (MBE) companies in our industry with a global reach, operating directly and through agency agreements in over 25 countries worldwide.
These are the qualities that make Walker unique among our competitors. Though we lack the “big name” recognition of other logistics providers, Walker executes on time, on budget, without service failures. As our customers will attest, sometimes the smallest factors make a world of difference.
