  • Excellence in service and adding value for customers

As a privately-held company we are not beholden to shareholders demanding quarter-by-quarter results.  This affords us the ability to both believe in and act on the idea that a long-term profit focus will lead to long-term customer relationships.  We choose to invest in our people, in our processes, and in our clients, even if it results in a short-term reduction in profits. 

Holman’s aim is to win a customer’s business and keep them as a client forever. The average length of our strategic customer relationships is over 34 years! We keep their business by providing the gold-standard in 3PL service. We know that your supply chain must add value to your product, and to your customer's experience. If we do our job well, we'll help to ensure your customers will want to do more business with you
