  • New UCW Winston-Salem office specializes in LTL, Mexico, and enterprise freight management.
  • UCW exec: Expansion was driven by the opportunity to add logistics experts.
  • UCW plans on doubling Winston-Salem office within three years.

UCW Logistics, a third-party logistics and managed freight solutions provider headquartered in Greenville, South Carolina, announced the company’s continued expansion with a new office in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

A new team of six members brings a wealth of logistics knowledge and capabilities which will help the company as it continues to build service offerings including truck brokerage, managed freight solutions, and international freight management.

UCW Logistics is an asset-light, privately-held company founded in 1925.

“This expansion was driven by the opportunity to add logistics experts who have worked together in the industry for many years,” said Evan Cramer, senior vice president for UCW Logistics. “They live in the Winston-Salem area, and we couldn’t resist the chance to pick up that kind of expertise. They specialize in modes of transportation that add to the capabilities of our Greenville office, including LTL freight, inbound and outbound Mexico freight, trailer management, owner-operator management and enterprise freight management. We will allow them to focus on growing their aspect of the business by providing administrative support, as well as additional resources for growth.”

“Our team has been lucky over the years to stay together through several transitions of companies being acquired, spun off or absorbed,” said Buddy Mayton, general manager of the new office. “From the start, we knew that UCW Logistics would be a great home for our team and that we would not have to make another move. The platform allows us access to resources and relationships to grow our business and expand our capabilities.”

Cramer anticipates adding two more employees to the Winston-Salem office over the next nine months and foresees the office expanding to 12 employees in three years.

UCW Logistics plans on continuing to grow organically with the addition of new customers and employees, as well as the acquisition of new branch offices.
