Company Profile

Choice Direct Logistics Inc. provides new and existing customers a new choice in the transportation of Direct Mail. Choice Direct Logistics, Inc. represents a highly accretive venture for The Custom Companies Inc. It enhances the company’s scale, service capabilities, and market position. The investment in the new division improves The Custom Companies lane density (especially out of the Chicago and Los Angeles markets) and presents low integration risk—Custom’s network of direct line haul and distribution are a perfect fit to service all ASF, SCF and NDC locations of the United States Postal Service.

Choice Direct Logistics Inc. is positioned to make an immediate impact in the marketplace through the leadership and experience of John Plzak, Dahn Johnson and Joe Paladino. These three gentlemen have years of marketing and operations experience in the direct mail distribution business. In addition, Choice Direct Logistics, Inc. will provide a new platform designed especially for clients with web-based “World Class Client Services.” The company has made major investments in web-based, user friendly technologies that change the way printers and mailers currently manage their business.

While The Custom Companies, Inc. will capitalize on operational synergies, the company’s primary objective is to continue to provide World Class Transportation Solutions to ensure customer satisfaction and retention. “The new company will expand the current scope of services and give our customers another choice in the solutions that they have available to them,” said Dahn Johnson, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. The Custom Companies Inc. management team is very excited about the new division’s opportunity for immediate success and substantial growth in the marketplace. Choice Direct Logistics, Inc. provides new employment opportunities for the community as well as the prospect of growth and profitability which will further solidify The Custom Companies Inc. footprint in the marketplace.
