SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA – When it comes to safe, reliable and cost-effective movement of goods in the Middle East, KGL Transportation Company (KGL TC) is a leader. With a workforce of over 1,000 and a fleet of more than 2,500 trucks, the company has built an impressive 25-year track record for providing the fastest transit time by road within the region to both government and commercial organizations.
KGL TC provides logistical mission support to the coalition forces and their vendors including transportation between Kuwait and Iraq. To support the U.S. military's stringent requirements for real-time information, asset and driver safety and availability, KGL TC turned to

"We selected FMS because they had the most innovative solution that could meet our needs," said Philip Sordian, Vice Chairman and COO of KGL TC. "The FMS system is helping us achieve our goal to be the most competitive, highest quality transportation provider in the region. Not only has it helped us maximize revenue available under existing contracts, but when it comes to competing for new contracts, the competitive advantage has exceeded our expectations," adds Sordian.
