"Dedicated to consistently providing exceptional service while competitively keeping our customers' best interests in mind." So read the business cards of our logistics support group.

The OmniSource logistics team deals daily with dynamic shipping conditions—rates, schedules, costs, and availability of trucks and containers, railcars, barges, and ocean-going vessels. All of these factors interact to help determine the optimum mode and timing in moving metals for recycling at the lowest cost while achieving required service objectives. In addition, in the export/import arena we are prepared to handle global movements, including all paperwork requirements for ocean freight shipments to comply with federal regulations.

Beyond transportation, our expertise extends to facilities design, equipment selection, and staffing for handling bulk materials, as well as management information systems to report, control, and track the movement of materiel. A technology leader, OmniSource was among the first to implement vehicle tracking and is implementing a program to employ GPS in all units of its truck fleet.

In fact, based on its reputation and expertise, our logistics support group is sometimes engaged to perform contract consulting for companies beyond the sphere of metals recycling. But you can be assured our main focus is providing topnotch service to OmniSource customers—keeping metals moving across America.
