We had the good fortune of connecting with CGI Transports & Logistics and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi CGI, let’s talk legacy – what do you want yours to be?
Our legacy has began long before starting this business, two people from two different worlds, with two different paths. Our names automatically trigger a thought or memory to those who know us, whether it’s a vision or a sound, we have left a piece of ourselves to everyone we have come across. It is our goal to fulfill the legacy through our need to be great, to accomplish what we began and create a business that will live on past our own selves; something our children’s children’s children will still own a piece of and thereafter. Each legacy begins with determination and hard work and we have proven we have both..
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
We are just two people that found each other in a time of redirection and refocus. We build on eachothers strengths to form CGI Transports. Starting something new is always a challenge, to over come that we picked a business we were both knowledgeable about, had prior experience and training. The biggest challenge is earning the trust of each new client to allow us to move their most precious possessions. Understanding each client’s needs and making sure they understand what we can and cannot do is important to make sure everyone is satisfied at the end of the day. So, listening is most important and putting the customer’s needs above ours is what makes a successful business. Also, knowing when to say NO can make or break your business. Just like everything we do, honesty. integrity and value is at the forefront of our business. So great customer service, impeccable work ethic and a passion for what we do sets us apart.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
We all gain inspiration from what we call our tribe. Those that support your crazy ideas and also guide you to hone and succeed in those outlandish things. In a world full of “you can’t ” we have found those that always say “we can” so we could never give credit to just one so our tribe of business owners, family, friends, clients and the people with vision that stop us along the way and say “I see who you are” are who have allowed us to continue on the path of success.
