FLS Company Profile : In the CEO's own words.
What separates FLS from other companies in our area?
FLS is in our third decade of service for the Logistics, Forwarders and Shippers of Air Freight
and Expedited Industry. The Company and its employees have grown with the many changes
that have occurred during this period of growth and change. FLS Employees, many with long
tenure, have the dedication and the experience to carry out their responsibilities and exceed
the expectations which FLS' customers have come to expect. FLS Customers can feel
confident when routing their shipments, that they will be handled by a team of experts.
Regardless of the nature: Personal, Business and Mission Critical shipments, are handled with
the highest quality, care and attention to detail that sets FLS apart from other companies.
FLS is about personal responsibility and accountability. It is the foundation which we believe,
truely sets FLS apart from others. It is practiced from the top down. Everyone is held
accountable for their actions or the consequences of their inaction.
FLS is financially secure. The company operates out of its own stand alone buildings. The
FLS Complex, which consists of 2 terminals sitting adjacent to each other, contains 38 secure
dock doors. The entire complex has 24/7 video surveillance and monitoring. Alarm events
automatically dispatch the Police and Fire Departments. FLS believes that Security is critical,
not only for your shipment, but for FLS personnel and the public's safety. All employees with
access to cargo are TSA certified. Every employee has had extensive background checks,
drug testing and undergo annual physicals.
FLS additionally owns 30 trucks, 2 vans and 4 fork-lifts as well as maintenance and staff
vehicles, hand carts and pallet jacks. FLS also owns a maintenance facility which is less than
a mile away from the FLS Complex. This full service garage maintains the company fleet while
also providing additional offsite storage for FLS. The ownership of vehicles and maintenance
facility enables our customers to feel at ease when shipping with FLS. Unexpected delays
will be minimal due to close supervision of the fleet and facility that we own. FLS track record
has proven that the vast majority of delays are due to 3rd party backlog and scheduling.
FLS is centrally located in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. This location has easy access to the on
and off ramps to I-83 and is very close to I-81 and Rt-76 the Pennsylvania Turnpike System
which leads to all major cities in Pennsylvania. Using Harrisburg as the central point; if you
draw a radius of 350 miles, 60% of the population of the United States can be reached from
FLS. We say... all points lead to FLS.
All FLS driver staff wear company uniforms and have cellular telephones for immediate
communication with FLS Dispatch. The trucks are equipped with pallet jacks, hand carts,
straps and load bars when needed. The company's employees, trucks and facility are bonded.
