Logistics Solution Builders Inc. was founded by Lloyd L. Ash, P.Eng., P.Log. Lloyd is an experienced and well respected logistics professional with over 20 years of professional consulting experience for clients in numerous business sectors, all levels of government, industry associations (shipper, carrier, professional groups) and international agencies. He managed the North American consulting business unit of Trimac Corporation, one of Canada's largest trucking fleets -- with extensive business activities in the United States and active fleet services to and from Mexico. He spearheaded Trimac's entry into providing intermodal transportation services with the development of an innovative rail - truck system for moving ore concentrates to one of the world's largest lead and zinc smelters.
He spearheaded the development of operational cost related transportation rates for transporting milk products in the province of British Columbia and was chosen by the province of British Columbia to benchmark heavy equipment costs for a recent edition of that province's Blue Book. He has supported rate negotiation efforts for minerals producers in Northern Saskatchewan, British Columbia and Alaska. He has also helped set up lumber reloading centres, warehouse facilities and the implementation of new systems and processes designed to enhance logistics efficiency.
In addition to leading an effective team of some 30 associates drawn from diverse logistics modes (trucking, rail, air, marine) and disciplines (regulatory, analytical, planning, operations management, procurement, information technology), Mr Ash recently retired from his full time tenured position as Associate Professor of Business at Mount Royal University where he developed and instructed directly relevant courses in the undergraduate Bachelor of Business Administration program in Supply Chain Management. In this capacity, he taught courses in Physical Distribution and Logistics Management, Business Management Information Systems, Business Integration Processes, Project Management, and Operations Management.
