  9. 9. In forming Eleets Transportation, a strategy built for growth was envisioned by creating the framework for a versatile, asset-light transportation services company built on Three Key Strategy Components: Provide Service through a multi-vertical business model, Operate under an asset light Philosophy, Be first in providing SMART solutions for customers. Strategy Multi- Smart Vertical Solutions Asset Light
  10. 10. MULTI-VERTICALBy providing services in multiple verticals, We can say yes to just about every customerand bring added stability to the business plan, as an especially strong showing in onevertical can offset a slow start in another.This strategy also enables Eleets Transportation to leverage its multiple strengths andservice capabilities. For example, a customer that needs truckload shipping might alsohave less-than-truckload shipments, and intermodal service may be substituted for truckservice when capacity is tight in a given traffic lane.Most importantly, working in multi-verticals provides a vehicle for accelerated growth, apoint made abundantly clear in Eleets Transportation‘s first year.
  11. 11. ASSET LIGHTMost customers are not comfortable turning their businesses over to brokerage-onlyservice providers, because it limits their options and potentially increases risk.We operates under an asset-light philosophy, where trucking assets comprise a strategic -but not predominant - part of the business model. The mantra is "we truck to broker."This mix of assets with brokerage enables the Eleets Transportation Logistics brand to bepresent at the customers shipping dock when necessary and allows access to assets,without encumbering the company with an excessive investment in them.We believe there is more profit potential in managing assets as opposed to owning them.

  13. 13. SMART SOLUTIONS While most logistics companies focus only on getting goods from one place to another, Eleets Transportation decreases "empty miles" by connecting two or more clients with empty cargo space that are heading in the same direction - a greener and more cost-effective way of moving freight.Enviromodal is Eleets’ brand-neutral, financial- and environmental-focused transportation initiative that offers another means of handling freightmore efficiently.Enviromodal will yield manage rail intermodal and truck drayage assets, thereby increasing asset utilization and reducing empty miles – meaningless consumption of fossil fuels and a decrease in air pollutants.As a logistics partner in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s SmartWay Transport Partnership, the reduction of greenhouse gas emissionsand improving the fuel efficiency of ground freight transportation are among Eleets’ primary goals.In addition, Enviromodal clients will be able to access real-time equipment availability and billing information, reserve equipment on a round-the-clock basis, manage shipments, submit questions about charges in real-time and utilize a one-stop rail billing feature.
