Shipmate Logistics understands that winning starts with employee training & retention along with hiring the most qualified candidates. Our evaluation and execution process begins at the employee level. We make sure you have the right people in the right positions. We show you how to retain your good employees (management & labor) so they don't leave for a competitor. We will teach you how to improve employee morale and get your employees motivated & engaged.
Our business model at Shipmate Logistics resembles your existing employee-company model. We work exclusively for you as though we were an employee. This unique approach allows us to quickly resolve issues and speed up the ROI for our services. It's like having a dedicated expert employee in-house without all the extra costs associated with employees.
