BAY LOGISTICS founder and patriarch Ronald Everett Johnston embraced a business philosophy of supreme customer service and “one stop shopping” — it is alive and well at BAY LOGISTICS! Bay’s fully–integrated Radio Frequency Warehouse Management System provides clients with complete supply chain visibility, facilitating quick and effective decision making. Our password–protected Bay Web Portal makes “real–time” inventory information available to our customers worldwide at the click of a finger, freeing them from relying on manually–requested inventory reports from antiquated “batched” systems employed by subpar third party providers. Customer feedback is the primary driver of additional logistics service offerings at existing and future Bay locations, and enables clients to eliminate costs associated with unnecessary transportation routes, double and triple handling, and excessive material damages. The investments we make in people, systems, equipment, and facilities enhance our clients’ ability to operate faster, smarter and more efficiently.
Sophisticated EDI capabilities, a savvy battle–tested IT Department, and an easily–integrated proprietary Radio Frequency warehouse management system are the hallmarks of BAY LOGISTICS. Robust processes and procedures, well–maintained facilities, a Customs bonded foreign trade zone, “hot” and “cold” temperature rooms, and an experienced professional workforce are some of the benefits which keep BAY LOGISTICS at the forefront of the Grand Rapids and Detroit, Michigan warehousing and logistics business! Conceived twenty–eight years ago in the Detroit, Michigan automotive trucking industry, BAY LOGISTICS has since evolved and diversified into several other markets including food & grocery, durable goods, chemical, non–ferrous metals and Class III Liquid Flammable HAZMAT containment. BAY LOGISTICS draws upon the resources of ISO–certified affiliates Martin Transportation Systems (truckload transportation) and Bay/MPS (quality inspections and sorting) to devise and implement innovative “single supplier” solutions, enabling clients to eliminate multiple time–consuming vendor relationships. One vendor, one consolidated invoice, one point of accountability — outsourcing third party logistics to BAY LOGISTICS allows clients to focus on engineering, production and sales opportunities.
