It all started in 1997
With a wealth of shared experience in logistics and transport, and the knowledge that they made a great team, Daniel Soucy and Carole St-Cyr joined forces in 1997 to found Cargolution Inc. The two are united by a single vision: to provide innovative cargo solutions while maintaining the fundamental values of respect, integrity, ethics and commitment as part of their mandate.
Their passion for the business and their know-how are among the key elements that make Cargolution a success. Their approach, based on authenticity and individual fulfillment within the company, fosters team spirit and improves task execution. Today, Cargolution counts on a team of more than 70 motivated and highly skilled people, working in strategically located offices in Montreal and Toronto.
Through this synergy, Carole and Daniel were able to redefine the very nature of international freight forwarding, namely logistics planning and transportation that meet the specific needs of a large client base in areas as diverse as the arts and entertainment, pharmaceuticals, aerospace, government, printing, conventions and trade shows, special projects, personal belongings and leading-edge technologies.
Going further and seeing the bigger picture
Becoming part of the World Freight Group (WFG), a grouping of private, independent international freight forwarder rigorously selected on the basis of performance benchmarks, was the logical continuation of the company’s tremendous growth. The association with WFG gave Cargolution access to over 500 ports and airports around the world, enabling it to provide turnkey services on a global scale. Recipient of the WFG award of excellence several times since 2000, Cargolution is positioned as an industry leader.
Following an ever-increasing demand, the company added a customs brokerage division to its range of services. In the fall of 2006, Cargolution further strengthens its relationship with clients by becoming a member of the Canadian Society of Customs Brokers. What’s more, by joining the World Baggage Network (WBN), AOG 24/7 network specialists for the aerospace industry, Pharma Logistics Network and lastly XLP for projects and out of guage merchandise, Cargolution has completed the scope of services it offers.
