The following four principles are the foundation of North Coast Logisitcs' business philosophy:

  • Deliver the specific service the customer wants
  • Strive to continually improve and add value to their products
  • Respect the customer's knowledge of their own business
  • Blend that experience with our own to create a unique, effective team
Customer Service 
  • Service is the only product we sell  
  • Customer satisfaction is imperative
  • Quality is not a program, it is a way of life. It is creating the desire in every individual to be the best they can, every day. It is the thrill of continually achieving a goal, even if only a small one.  It is making every action count.
  • Associate involvement and continual training are crucial.
  • Without associate participation and dedication, success will not be achieved.  
  • The "empowerment" principle cannot simply be taught.  It must become a way of life.
  • An entrepreneurial environment allows for innovative and creative thought processes
  • Ownership and dedication are critical components in the partnership process
  • Honesty and integrity are a matter of record and will never be compromised.
