Testimonials. ALC is here to serve you!

"I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say THANK YOU for what you are doing to help connect companies and candidates in the Atlanta Logistics market. I wanted to let you know of a SUCCESS STORY of your match-making. Almost 2 years ago now, Kerry was working for a company in Wisconsin. He had moved from Atlanta to take that job, but right before he moved he found what we now know is “the love of his life”. He suffered through a year in Wisconsin – the job was OK but he really missed home and his girlfriend. You put out one of your match-making notes about Kerry to the Logistics Connection network and we quickly scooped him up. Within just a few weeks, he was back in Atlanta and has been a KILLER team member for me! This weekend, Kerry and his fiancé, Melanie, are getting married! Can’t thank you enough for what you do and the commitment you make to helping people! Just wanted to share!"
