Welcome to our first blog post. We decided to start a blog, because it’s a great way to communicate in today’s world of electronic communications and social media. We hope our blog provides you with another perspective and perhaps some personal insight into who we are at Palisades Logistics by sharing experiences, thoughts, and ideas. Hopefully we will provide some useful info, maybe something thought provoking, and even something that makes you laugh now and then.
Starting a blog is not hard, but since we’re new at blogging we are a little stumped about what to write about in our first post. For those of you who know us, you’re already aware that we’re pretty skilled at talking about ourselves, so without much thought it seemed fitting that we give a glimpse into our world outside of marketing public warehousing and transportation services.
