In the construction industry onsite workflow is critical to profitability. John Scott, Vice president of the Wheelwright Group, Inc. says, “If you have crane operators and construction crews sitting around awaiting delivery of material, you’re losing hundreds, even thousands of dollars per hour!” With 3PL Links’ commitment to appropriate scheduling needs, this never happens. “Currently” continues John Scott; “3PL Links is coordinating the delivery of 60 truckloads of prefabricated building material from the American Buildings Company in the United States to Toronto, Canada.” The Wheelwright Group has partnered with the American Buildings Company, one of the largest and most experienced manufacturers of custom engineered steel building systems in the world for going on 20 years now. Construction of the new NHL Toronto Maple Leafs practice facility begins Monday, April 28th and Operations Manager Don Fleming at 3PL Links will not only ensure timely delivery of the required components, but will stagger the delivery to insure there is no downtime once construction begins.
The Wheelwright Group Inc. is a design/build general contractor with more than 45 years experience in construction. They have built everything from churches in the Canadian Arctic, horse stables in Toronto, to airline hangars in Sri Lanka. Their shipping needs vary from single LTL deliveries to upwards of 60 truckloads of pre-engineered material. “We needed to find a logistics company that understood not only the complexity of the construction industry, but our own idiosyncrasies as well,” says John Scott. “We also feel it’s best to deal with only one supplier. 3PL Links functions as our logistics department, and that’s the way we like it. We’re very happy with the job 3PL Links is doing for us.” To learn more about The Wheelwright Group Inc. visit their website here.

“Not only did we realize a 15% reduction in freight spend in our first year, but we soon realized that we could never approach the level of expertise that 3PL Links brings to the table.”
