“We've been in business for many years, and we would handle our own logistics from ground zero. When I say ground zero, meaning sourcing, trucking, packaging. We would do the whole nine yards to deliver what we have for our end-users, our customers. But for a period of time, we were not able to see the economies of scale that we could achieve by what we currently do as a practice versus what the market would be using.
