SCI Logistics opens specialized transportation centre in the Greater Vancouver Area

New Langley centre to offer SCI's White Glove services from coast-to-coast

VANCOUVER, April 7, 2015 /CNW/ - SCI Logistics announced the opening of a new specialized transportation centre in Langley, BC. This is the fourth facility opened by SCI within the past 12 months, extending the company's footprint from coast-to-coast.

The 35,000 square-foot facility, a consolidation of Burnaby Moving & Storage, will provide specialized "white glove" business which offers high value products shipping integrated with enhanced technical services such as configuration, staging, and installation.

"We are happy to have joined a company that has the same vision for high value product services that we have had for 40 years, says Ken Digness, a former BMS' principal currently a part of the SCI team. "We have been partners for several years already and are delighted at the integration which is positive for us and our employees."

"In our business, clients have been asking for consistency in quality and customer experience wherever they use the service. This is what SCI now offers: we have reached the goal of expanding our network to cover 90% of the country directly from our own specialized transportation centres," says Sean Watson, Vice President of Transportation at SCI Logistics. "With standardized processes and quality requirements, we can now focus on further enhancing the set of technical capabilities performed in conjunction with our transportation services for multi-functional office machines, retail point-of-sale equipment, medical equipment, ATMs, automated kiosks, servers, and many other high value products".

SCI now offers eight transportation centres and 40 field stocking locations that will be leveraged for post sales logistics services. The network enables sameday or next day mission-critical delivery and technician dispatch for diagnostics, triage, and break-fix.
