Quick Thinking Helps Chinese Company Make Seamless Entry to U.S. Market

Quick Thinking Helps Chinese Company Make Seamless Entry to U.S. Market At ICAT Logistics DTW, we know how to solve problems – and help new businesses make a great first impression.   You need only ask executives of a China-based startup – new to the U.S. market – who made an urgent call to us on the eve of the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.   Their concern: No arrangements had been made to move prototypes of their robotic vans from a delivery truck to the floor of Detroit’s Cobo Center. Time was of the essence. The prototypes were arriving…

Getting Hitched without a Hitch

Getting Hitched without a Hitch Our website and catalog of successful case studies typically spotlight the kind of work that we’re most often called upon to do: Moving big, heavy complex shipments across borders and around the world.

The Right Stuff: The Story Behind Our Silver Anniversary

The Right Stuff: The Story Behind Our Silver Anniversary It takes special ingredients – and special people – to deliver the success and growth that distinguish the ICAT Logistics Detroit office. Today’s company traces its roots to a four-person suburban Detroit office opened in 1994 by Dan Cser as the first agency in the Baltimore-based ICAT Logistics network. The network was created the previous year by Rick Campbell, a friend and former colleague of Cser. Since its founding, the network has expanded to 19 agencies that serve the needs of domestic…

Courage and Compassion Go the Distance with America’s Truckers

Courage and Compassion Go the Distance with America’s Truckers America’s truckers have precious cargo on board. But it’s not the kind you can pack in a crate or stack on a pallet. Sharing the ride are values that – every day – enrich the quality of life on America’s highways. Among those: compassion, courage, good will, patriotism, citizenship and self-sacrifice.
