Blue(Green)Grace Logistics?

Green technologies are no longer societies trending topic but rather have become a way of life for some individuals. Using all-natural soaps and chemical-free cleaning products are impacting our environment but what about the bigger picture?

 

The logistics industry has been able to utilize new technologies and developed methods to become more efficient and therefore less wasteful. As Braden Allenby believes, as stated in his book Reconstructing Earth, “…it could be said that the advances in mathematics that have enabled more efficient routing of vehicles among numerous points are possibly one of the most potent environmental technologies of the last decade. This is not a technology normally recognized by environmentalists and environmental regulators.”

 

Though “Going Green” is not a topic that is always covered in the media, at BlueGrace Logistics of Jacksonville we believe that becoming more efficient with the use of clean technologies is an important challenge we face.

Sandy the Monster

Hurricane Sandy has become nothing similar to the original prediction of the type of hurricane it would be. Most meteorologists thought Sandy would be similar to Hurricane Irene in 2011. However that has not been the case. Hurricane Sandy maybe one of the most expensive hurricane, topped only by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. The total cost of the hurricane damage has been estimated to be between 50 and 60 billion dollars. When the cost of all hurricanes is adjusted for inflation, population, and housing, Hurricane Sandy is number six rather than number two. Hurricane Katrina is not even number one when adjusted for the different factors, a hurricane is southeast Florida in 1926 takes the very top.

 

 

There is still hope for the northeast. Redcross, Snooki from Jersey Shore, AOL, and multiple other organizations have banned together in order to send relief and raise money for the victims. Unfortunately the death toll as of November 5, 2012, is 101 and still rising. Students of New York and New Jersey are finally able to go back to school. The northeast will need some time in order to stabilize eventually. When this hurricane was starting out no one would have guessed the magnitude. But who can honestly predict the damage and price of any hurricane.

The support of organizations in our nation is remarkable. Bluegrace Logistics of Jacksonville is backs the care and relief being provided to all those who have suffered from this hurricane. Feel free to contact us: @bluegracejax or send email

Sandy Oh Sandy!

Who knew Sandy would be so destructive? That is Hurricane Sandy. In the middle of hurricane season, a monster has hit so close to Halloween that it has our eastern sea board in chaos. This category one hurricane started off as a tropical storm but has taken the nation by surprise as the damage and lives it has cost. Hurricane Sandy has made its way up the east coast of the US and will be moving its way into the next country, Canada. The winds have reached almost 100-mph and knocking over trees left and right. Whether it is family, homes, or business, everyone is feeling the effects.

 

One business in particular has been extremely affected and that is the transportation logistics industry. Travel, whether by air, sea, or land, has become difficult. Flights to and from airports in cities in the northeast have been cancelled, directly affecting the freight going into the northeastern region. Freight operations will take a substantial amount of time getting back to their normal flow.

 

BlueGrace Logistics of Jacksonville has faith and is still working hard to keep the freight moving as the highways and bi-ways are reopening. No one wants late shipments, stored loads, accessorial fees for lay-overs and detention which directly affects our customers. We work very hard to make your deliveries possible even with a deadly hurricane in the midst.

The New Age

Social Media has become a new stomping ground for businesses especially those in health care and technology. But the logistics industry is severely lagging behind. Not only are most companies merely using social media as a marketing strategy, but they forget to listen to their consumers through the feed as well.

 

Here at BlueGrace Logistics of Jacksonville we listen to our consumers and produce the best customer service possible but unfortunately other competitors do not include those who use Social Media as their main communication. At BlueGrace Logistics of Jacksonville we follow back on Twitter and friend you on Facebook, so we can have a better understanding of our clients and their network.

 

Social Media has evolved over the last ten years and will continue to do so at an even a faster pace. Business was never conducted online fifty years ago and today almost all business involves the Internet. Social Media plays a huge role in this and will continue to do so into the future. At BlueGrace Logistics of Jacksonville we try to stay on top of the social media industry with newer forms of media like Pinterest and Google+. All of this is done so we can better understand our audience and our customers.

 

We care and we know you do too. So leave a comment if you wish and we’ll be sure to comment back.
