Strader-Ferris International was founded 3 generations ago, and we attribute our success to a few basic ideas:

• hands-on management makes a big difference in the world of logistics
• empowering well trained staff sets us above our competition
• accepting change enables us to overcome obstacles and implement efficiencies
• providing customized end-to-end solutions for customers is essential

Raymond Strader founded our company in 1953. He was entrepreneurial and honest. His children Robert and Carole (Ferris) succeeded in transitioning the company to a point where transportation solutions became part of the package and increased value for customers.

Today, Mike Ferris (B.A. Economics, Queens; M.B.A., Schulich) has assumed his position as the third-generation owner and President. Helping the drive to expand services to meet the needs of customers involved in global business is Derek Van Schie (Vice President), with over 18 years of company service to his credit.

The tradition continues...

Expect a Difference...

It comes from our people. Many of our employees have 10 years of tenure, and the majority have been with us for more than 5 years. This allows for a personalized partnership with customers that starts from day 1. Each employee combines Customs and transportation expertise in order to solve your logistics challenges fast! NO chasing answers. NO wasting time. A measurable difference.

We pride ourselves on our ability to make the transition to our services swift and painless for new customers. In fact, the feedback usually conveys that they wished they hadn't waited so long to try us.

Simplicity. Efficiency. Accountability. Solutions.
