TransCore Link Logistics welcomed customers, partners, media and industry leaders to celebrate the official grand opening of their space on March 20th.
When members of the trucking industry get together it is always an exciting time, this event was no different. The bright, open environment and welcoming atmosphere made this Open House “Link Mixer” a truly one-of-a-kind event.
The event was filled with networking, entertainment, appetizing hor ‘doeuvres and of course tours of the new facility.
The Link Mixer held true to its name - the room was buzzing with excitement as the nearly 200 guests reconnected with old friends and acquaintances. Many introductions were made and potential business connections formed.
Delicious appetizers and drinks were served throughout the night. International wine sommelier, Rebecca Pettigrew’s reputation proceeded her. Pettigrew was knowledgeable and friendly as guests sampled international red and white wines.
Halfway through event, Claudia Milicevic, the senior director and general manager of TransCore Link Logistics gave a speech that outlined their transition into the space.
Milicevic spoke about how much this move means to their company. This new space is one they are proud of, as it appeals to top talent with its trendy design, central location and modern amenities.
“We need to attract and retain the caliber of people that will develop the best products and provide superior service. Innovation is moving faster than ever and technology is evolving at a pace that companies struggle to keep up with. We need to remain at the forefront of it and invest in our technology and people to deliver solutions that contribute to our customers’ success,” said Milicevic.
After the speech, it was time to give away some prizes! Attendees were entered to win Raptors tickets, Toronto FC tickets and crystal trucks. The fun atmosphere prompted some great reviews.
“Great night at the opening celebrations for TransCore Link Logistics. We have been working with this team for a decade. Great people and products,” said Bruce Outridge of Outridge Enterprises Inc. on Twitter.
