Crane Worldwide celebrates 10 years since taking flight

Crane Worldwide Logistics has celebrated 10 years since its launch. The logistics firm was originally launched by Jim Crane in Houston in 2008, during the financial crisis,  following a lost a takeover battle with investment firm Apollo for control of the firm he founded in 1984, Eagle Global Logistics.
Since 2008, Crane Worldwide has grown to have more than 1,800 employees with 120 locations in 26 countries, spanning all major global geographies.
“To say that I am grateful of my team’s success over the past ten years would be an understatement,” said John Magee, president and chief executive of Crane Worldwide Logistics.
“I cannot thank enough all of those who have helped us along the way, including our clients, suppliers and all of our worldwide personnel who make it happen every day.”
Founding executive chairman Jim Crane added: “We have remained true to our vision and have built a growth focused organization that challenges conventional thinking and at 10 years young we are just getting started.
"By regularly investing in our people, our service and our innovative technology, we will continue to thrive as a multinational, client-focused logistics company with a very bright future ahead.”
The logistics firm said that over the last decade, it had "dramatically expanded its service offering from achieving Jim Crane’s vision of being a global player in the competitive global freight management and contract logistics services sector".
