It has been a busy and substantial year for the logistics industry as a whole. Here at Scout Logistics, we have had an equally involved and exciting 2015 of our own. With this in mind, we’ve laid out some of the highlights, achievements, developments, occasions, and overall happenings that we have had the pleasure to take part in! Without further ado, let’s get to the point and tell you all about the year that was 2015 for Scout Logistics!
At Scout Logistics, caring is at the very core of what we’re all about – we always go that extra mile to support projects in our community. In 2015 Scout Logistics has been very proud of our integral involvement with Baycrest Health Sciences, The Bridle Bash Foundation, ALS Society, Ontario Mental Health Association, Hockey Helps the Homeless and #DementiaHack to name just a few.
One of our proudest achievements for 2015 was being recognized as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies in March. It seems our scrupulous efforts towards creating an efficient, successful, and perhaps most importantly, sincere and honourable work and business environment have not gone unnoticed. Sponsored by Deloitte, CIBC, National Post, The Stephen J.R. Smith School of Business and MacKay CEO Forums, the Best Managed award recognizes Canadian owned and managed companies with revenues over $10 million for sustained growth, financial performance, management practices and the efforts of the entire organization. This picture, taken at the Winners Gala in March 2015, shows our CEO Ethan Kline accepting the coveted award.

July 2015 also marked the inaugural edition of the Scout Shoot Out Showdown. Taking place at a number of venues across the Greater Toronto Area, the 3 day long round robin style tournament featured around 100 participants from a variety of professional and semi professional fast pitch softball teams, including The Durham Bulls, Toronto Gators, and Maccabi Canada. Scout Logistics even had a team of our own. Most significantly, each team was playing to raise money for their favourite charities. Scout put up the $25,000 purse which was ultimately donated to The ALS Society, Hockey Helps the Homeless, Ontario Mental Health Association and The Bridle Bash Foundation.
Of course, we have no intention of being blindsided into stagnancy by this year’s success. Here at Scout Logistics we have significant plans for 2016 and beyond. As part of the Best Managed program, we will be tirelessly pushing forward in terms of our technological innovations and continuing to perfect our customer service efficiency. Further development of our tracking applications will of course play a major role in this process, and will be a top priority in the coming year. Beyond that, here at Scout Logistics we are also devoted to taking part in the greater community by way of fun and functional charitable events, and there is no doubt that we still be continuing these endeavours in 2016.
Wishing you a safe and Happy Holiday Season!
