Woodridge, IL (February 18, 2008) – Midwest Warehouse & Distribution System, Inc., a best-in-class provider of full-service logistics solutions, is marking its 25th year in business by enhancing its brand, logo and Web site.

Midwest Warehouse’s quality-driven warehousing, transportation and logistics services enable clients to operate at the highest levels, and in turn, create sustainable value for their customers. Leveraging industry knowledge, service expertise and technology capabilities, the company proactively identifies process improvements and cost-cutting strategies that help improve clients’ business performance. This focus has resulted in long-term partnerships with customers who consider Midwest Warehouse an extension of their team. Midwest Warehouse has provided valuable services to many leading companies, including Diageo, Cargill, RR Donnelley, Crate and Barrel, Kimberly Clark, Pepperidge Farm and Sonoco.

“The industry has grown at a rate of 20-25% a year over the last few years. I would anticipate similar growth as long as we continue to maintain our core values of business,” commented Midwest Warehouse CEO and Co-Founder Ed Borkowski. “With 25 years in the industry, we want to leverage our successful history and prepare for the next generation of the business.”

To effectively position the company for the future, Midwest Warehouse turned to ClearEdge Marketing, a firm known for developing creative and successful branding strategies, to refresh its go-to-market strategy, logo and Web site.
