Fort McKay Logistics’ vision is to be the first Fourth Party Logistics (4PL) Aboriginal supply chain management service provider in Canada. We want to be a “one stop shop” for our clients where Fort McKay Logistics would be their “vendor of choice” to source, buy and move materials from suppliers, stock materials at warehouses, and deliver materials on time to customers.
Our business model includes sourcing, buying, stocking, repackaging and moving materials. To enable this business model, we have formed a Procurement department that manages services beyond the transportation and warehousing services we provide with our own resources. Below are some areas of focus of our Procurement department.
- We source logistics and freight forwarding services that go beyond services that we provide with our own fleet. We have established relationships with logistics sub-contractors and freight forwarding companies. We have the capability to move materials from anywhere in the world via land, sea and air by leveraging our comprehensive contracts with logistics service providers.
Source, Buy and Stock Materials
- We source, buy and stock materials on behalf of our clients. We have capabilities to search, qualify and select both international and domestic suppliers, and negotiate contracts with them. We have a comprehensive contract with Sinopec, that gives access to low cost Chinese materials, and with other suppliers to satisfy the needs of our clients.
- We identify materials that are common to multiple clients and leverage economies of scale to source materials at competitive rates. We supply a variety of materials a client may require, including but not limited to pipes, valves, flanges, fittings, fasteners and ground engaging parts such as blades, rippers, etc.
- We are an authorized distributor of Mobil Lubricants to the Oil Sands. We supply both bulk and packaged Mobil Lubricants to our clients.
