With over 70 branches, Solistica has become one of the largest logistics companies in Brazil
Conquering the Brazilian market is a huge challenge for all types of industries, but more so for logistics: Brazil is a country with continental proportions with more than 5,570 counties spread over 8.5 million square kilometers (3.28 million square miles).
Solistica rose to this challenge embracing the idea that “there are no limits.” The company put its slogan to test, becoming the only logistics specialist able to offer complete north to south and east to west coverage.
Once it had set up operations in Brazil, Solistica secured the consulting services of McKinsey to identify the most promising partnerships. That research found out that Expresso Jundiaí and Atlas met the profile sought: renowned companies, quality, experience of over 60 years in the Brazilian market, and vast infrastructure to achieve not just territorial coverage, but cultural reach.
Between 2013 and 2015, Solistica strengthened its presence in Brazil adding the transportation and warehousing capacities of both companies into a unified and differentiated offer. Thus, Solistica was able to bring its clients products all over Brazil through its 3PL offer.
This strengthening responded to a challenge inherent to the social and political characteristics of Brazil. Land freight is the main mode for cargo transportation; 75% of what is manufactured in Brazil is distributed over land.
By adding the experience, presence, and infrastructure of Expresso Jundiaí and Atlas, Solistica is now recognized as one of the best 3PL solutions thanks to its competitiveness in terms of coverage and delivery times. With over 70 branches, a fleet of ~3,500 vehicles, and the necessary coverage in terms of warehousing, we offer new reach and lower delivery times to the Brazilian market.
A testament to this is the trust high-profile clients have given us (Ache, Boticario, Hypermarcas, and Intelbras), and awards like Prêmio Excelência em Logística Aché, Prêmio Fornecedor Ouro Boticário, and Prêmio Fornecedor Ouro Intelbras, among others, which have acknowledged Solistica as the best supplier of transportation in the region.
With over 60 years of experience and more than 5 million annual deliveries, Solistica can proudly say it covers 100% of Brazil’s 3PL needs, mainly focusing on these industries: pharmaceutical, automotive, telecommunications, technology, health, personal hygiene, fashion, and consumer goods.
