Evergro Group of Companies hired GLS Consulting to increase our inventory accuracy from 65% to 99%. The project was successful and we subsequently went on to engage GLS Consulting for a number of different projects over the next eight years. They contributed in a substantial and meaningful way to Evergro’s success.
GLS not only provided traditional consulting in purchasing, warehousing, transportation, WMS and production, they had expertise in management facilitation, process documentation and innovation, as well as project management. GLS provided training using case studies during the business requirements documentation phase of our ERP selection project and during our project charter development.
GLS Consulting is highly recommended for any business issues faced by business organizations. The Consultants are highly professional and align with all levels of management and staff.

I engaged GLS Consulting for not just their expertise in logistics and process, but their ability to deliver with an educational approach. I had many employees involved in our solutions, and their personal knowledge was varied to say the least. Brian and his staff provided “training” to go along with our chosen solutions, and that investment continues to pay dividends for the people involved and the company as a whole.

GLS Logistics helped us during the redesign of our 7,000 sq ft building materials warehouse at UBC Building Operations in 2012. We needed to increase space/shelf utilization in our pallet racking area in order to vacate another warehouse in the campus. To make matters more difficult, the manufacturer of our racking system has gone out of business, something that was limiting our ability to access specs and load data. Brian Graystone and his team did a wonderful job to get to the core of our issues and swiftly recommending the most cost effective warehouse lay out and slotting plan. Furthermore, they helped us navigating the regulatory process to implement the changes recommended in our racking system, something that we didn’t have any experience with and that would have been a potential source of delays. Thanks to Brian and his team, we were able to complete the redesign project on time and within budget.
I would recommend GLS Logistics without hesitation and will certainly partner with them again on future projects.
