Paradigm Electronics and Vanguard Global Services have formed an alliance under which Vanguard will serve as Paradigm’s prime logistics provider for shipments within North America as well as import and export shipments.
Paradigm and Vanguard continue to build on a relationship that was established in 2011 with Vanguard providing transportation services for Paradigm from their Mississauga, ON, facility to customers in Canada and the United States. Since then, the alliance has grown to include shipments originating in the United States as well as to and from selected overseas countries.
As an international leader in speaker design and manufacturing, Paradigm sought a logistics partner that could provide a wide variety of transportation services to meet the exacting needs of its customers. Vanguard, with its years of experience in Canadian and TransBorder logistics solutions, was able to satisfy those needs with a set of programs that met all of Paradigm’s requirements. In the process, Paradigm was able to significantly reduce their number of transportation providers as well as their overall cost of transportation.
In addition to the transportation solution, Vanguard installed its proprietary Ship+ technology to allow Paradigm to process all of its shipments using a single platform that is integrated with Paradigm’s back end systems.
“Vanguard is extremely proud to have Paradigm / Martin Logan as one of our most important clients,” said Mark Bates, vice president of sales and marketing at Vanguard. “Our integrated Ship+ Transportation Management System provides processing of all customer orders requiring Small Package or Less than Truckload service in a multi-location and multi-carrier environment. We provide Paradigm / Martin Logan with one web-based system that can track and trace all orders, report costs and provide performance management. As Paradigm builds the world’s best Audio Equipment, we had to provide them with the very best Supply Chain Solutions.”
