Keystone Western Inc. is a quality provider of asset based and 3PL supply-chain logistics services enabling its clients to reduce their overall operating costs, improve internal and external customer service levels, and increase their global market share. Keystone’s success is driven by its proven consultative business approach, industry flexibility, unique corporate culture, and professional working environment, which will drive both business and personal growth for its customers, employees, and investors.
The success of Keystone Western over the years has directed them away from being a basic provider of trucks and rates to becoming a logistics consultant and business partner, bringing new ideas to the table and operating as an extension of our customer’s supply-chain management group. By combining our strength in three key service groups (Logistics Auditing, Asset-Based Transportation, and 3PL Management), they feel they will provide their clients with the best chance to succeed in their business by providing a “strategic” competitive advantage. The company continues to be a major contributor to their community, employing 155 people.
