In an effort to fully represent its various service offerings, third-party logistics (3PL) services provider Saddle Creek Corporation announced this week it has changed its name to Saddle Creek Logistics Services.

Company officials said this new name “is intended to better represent the company’s broad-based capabilities which include warehousing, transportation, packaging and order fulfillment.”

“Because of our flexibility and intense focus on developing solutions to meet customers’ needs, our business has grown significantly over the past 45 years,” said Saddle Creek Logistics Services President Cliff Otto in an interview. “We have broadened our customer base, expanded into new industries and vertical markets, and added new service offerings such as brokerage, packaging, and fulfillment. We felt it was important that our name reflect the company that we’ve become.”

Otto explained that this change in name is transparent to its customers, and it will not impact day-to-day operations.

But he noted that customers definitely benefit from its service integration and the ability to access a wide range of services from a single provider allows them to streamline operations, accommodate business fluctuations, control supply chain costs, and improve service to their customers.

“Our name now clearly identifies our core business and raises awareness of our service integration—a key element of our value proposition,” said Otto.”

In a company statement, Saddle Creek Logistics Services said that the company has made progress in recent years in integrating its warehousing, transportation, contract packaging and order fulfillment services to meet the needs of medium and large manufacturers, retailers and distributors as well as online merchants.
