History of TOC Logistics: Our Story

Apr 4, 2019TOC Team

Since 2005, TOC Logistics has been providing clients with efficient supply chain and logistics solutions that drive results and impact bottom lines. Because of our expert team’s hard work over the years and staunch commitment to our clients’ success, our organization is still rapidly expanding today.

We have long said that our roots lie in the concepts of Transparency, Optimization, and Collaboration, which is also how we came to be known as “TOC.” Here is a bit more about our unique story that has led us to where we are today:

Our Start

Our organization was originally born from the idea that success is achieved when a business focuses on what it does best and where it drives the most value for its clients. As a division within a well-known North American 3PL, the division focused solely on international supply chain solutions, for its existing client base.

After much success, it was time for this international division to grow and step out on its own. Gary Cardenas, TOC Logistics’ current President and CEO and 30-year veteran of the logistics industry, purchased the division in 2010, and in September 2011, TOC Logistics was born.  TOC Logistics International, Inc. was officially in operation and headed down an exciting path within the industry. 

Continued Growth

With the launch of TOC Logistics, Gary Cardenas began providing the industry with a new option in global value chain solutions. Under his leadership, our organization became a global force in helping manufacturers reduce costs, improve transit times, and gain improvements through innovative service offerings.

Shortly after incorporating in 2011, TOC Logistics became a full-fledged NVOCC (Non-Vessel Operating Container Carrier) and an independent air carrier. And because of our commitment to delivering excellence, maintaining numerous industry certifications has been a continued focus over the years.

Under Gary’s leadership, TOC Logistics has also continued to expand its global footprint even further. With locations and on-site staff in Mexico and Europe, we are showing no signs of slowing down. Although we started with less than a dozen staff members in the very beginning, we are proud to now have a staff of more than 70 that has an impressive employee retention rate. 

Looking to the Future

TOC Logistics is continuing to grow at a rapid rate. Just this year we have already added more than five new members to our team, and we are also currently hiring for two different positions. As we look to the future, and the possibilities of expanding to additional industries or new areas of the globe, our focus will always be our clients.

We are proud of our story and where we have been, but we, as a team, can’t wait to see what the future holds for TOC Logistics. Are you ready to be a part of our story? Contact us today to learn more.
