A Century of Expertise
The CLI lineage began in 1903 when J.V. McNicholas began handling general transport and storage with a basic horse-and-cart operation. McNicholas expanded to form Compass Transportation and purchased Falcon Transport, a provider of just-in-time transportation services to automotive, steel and general-goods suppliers and manufacturers.

In response to market needs, Comprehensive Logistics Inc. was formed in 1995 to provide total supply chain management expertise to companies across North America. Today, CLI operates as an independent third-party logistics provider focused exclusively on the needs of manufacturers, distributors and shippers.
