LS Logistics History

Lane Sales Development Group started in 1997

Founded in 1997, LS Logistics operated in 1,000 square feet of office and warehouse space in Mississauga, ON. 

We identified a need to have our client's products closer to our retail resellers and set out to grow the distribution of our client's Canadian business. We offered our clients the knowledge and relationships of what our retailer resellers needed to satisfy Canadian packaging laws and distribution compliance measures.

1997
6,000 Square Feet- Dawson Rd, Guelph, ON

As our business grew so did the product categories we distributed. We moved into 6,000 Square feet of office and warehouse space to accommodate our growing needs. 

1999
15,000 Square Feet - 89 Lorne Ave, Stratford, ON

With most goods we received coming by floor-loaded containers, we expanded further to a facility in Stratford, ON. This fulfillment center had multiple loading dock locations to support our continued growth and further product category expansion. 

2003
25,000 Square feet - 80 Southgate Drive, Guelph, ON

As we continued to grow we moved our office and fulfillment center back to Guelph, ON. This served us well as the business was primarily focused on Lane Sales, which is our sales agency. At the time, this facility was great and very well utilized being fully racked. At this time we were a paper-based operation but that was about to change. 

2007
55,000 Square Feet - 945B Southgate Drive, Guelph, ON

This location became our HQ, with 55,000 square feet of fulfillment and office space. We knew this was large and allowed us room to grow, so over the course of 2 years, we installed racking in phases to fully utilize the cube. During this time we invested in the business to become extremely efficient and expand our fulfillment capabilities.

2015
30,000 Square feet - 2nd Fulfillment Center

For the past 2 years, we would sublease space at 945A Southgate Drive during Q4 to help with the natural buying patterns of consumers. We knew we needed more space if we wanted to bring on new customers. This additional location provided us with quite a bit of room to grow… or so we thought.

Q1 2020
15,000 Square feet - 3rd Fulfillment Center

Having only moved into our second fulfillment center 7 months prior, it almost came as a surprise that we needed additional space so fast. In reflection, we have really prioritized our sales/marketing efforts but COVID-19’s acceleration to buy online was a big factor as well. 

Q4 2020
Our currently operation is 100,000 Sq Ft but we are not done yet..... 

Our mission is to work with our customers to design unique distribution methods catered to each customer's need. We pride ourselves in exceptional customer service levels and industry know-how that spans several markets. We seek long-lasting growth-based partnerships that are highly profitable for both parties.

For over 20 years, we have built relationships that have allowed us to grow and prosper in a vastly changing environment. It is this, coupled with our passion to ensure we are proactive with technology, that has greatly helped us surpass and stay ahead of our competition.
