Family Owned and Operated for Seven Generations
Taylor Logistics Inc. Since 1850
One hundred seventy years ago, my great great great grandfather John Rex Taylor III traveled from Bath, England with his family to the bustling river town of Cincinnati, OH. With a horse and a carriage, John and his son Edward started the “Taylor Drayage Company,” taking paper supplies from the steamships to a book factory and then the finished product back to the steamship. Essentially the original Amazon. During this horseless age, my great-great grandfather led Taylor through disruptive technological advances, economic turmoil, and strict government regulations. Then came the change to motor trucks, bringing the decline of the Miami and Erie Canal canal—an essential route to the Taylor Drayage Company—and the rise of the rails, spurring two critical events: a move closer to the Cincinnati railroads and a change of the name to the “Taylor Trucking Company”. John Rex Taylor III’s legacy has taught our business that, effectiveness trumps efficiency. No amount of efficiency in horse-drawn wagons would have allowed us to stay in business. Efficiency is doing things right; effectiveness is doing the right thing. With this motto in mind, we’ve continued to push our business forward, modifying our service offerings throughout the years to better serve our customers. We’ve even gone through another name change from “Taylor Trucking Company” to “Taylor Logistics Inc,” a name that encompasses all aspects of a third-party logistics provider

Drew Taylor

As Vice-President, Drew is responsible for the warehouse operations. His main focus is inventory accuracy and he is able to achieve this through our people, our processes and our technology.

This is one of the best ways of identifying problem areas on a timely basis and providing an environment conducive to continuous improvement.

Grant Taylor
Grant started his career as a warehouse operator at Taylor while in High School and in College where he attended The Ohio State University (breaking family tradition). At OSU he achieved his  Bachelor of Science in Business Administration double specializing in Logistics Management & Operations Management. During his time in college Grant was an intern at General Electric working at their distribution center in Hebron, Kentucky where he was responsible for outbound kitting operations for the  CF-6 engine assembly.

After graduating Grant went to work for Cummins Inc (diesel engine & component manufacturer) where he spent three years at their distribution center in Walton, Kentucky. During his tenure there he was responsible for employee health & safety then onto quality control and then ended his time as the systems manager.  At Cummins Grant had a well-rounded experience and gained a lead auditor training from Bureau Veritas in ISO9001/TS16949 as well as a six sigma belt and worked on WMS/OMS system implementations and BI skills with SQL for report automation. Grant learned how important it is to use data and a full understanding of system capabilities while using lean tools like A3/kaizen/gemba to make business decisions and improve processes and then more importantly to document the processes and training to sustain those improvements.

Grant retuned  family business after his learnings in the industry to be an Operations Manager for one of Taylor’s larger customers. During this time he was able to implement with our customer a large number of processes to improve cost and throughput while also maintaining SQF level II certifications and quality standards that are demanded. Partnership has been a key focus with Grant and because of this has grown from one to three warehouses in a short period of time and was promoted to General Manager. With each DC there has been a new implementation with the WMS and with the people and processes and all have been unique and challenging and fast pace but all have been very rewarding. Although he strives himself on the system skills and key data reporting he knows that our most valuable resource are the people that actually bring in the product and pick and ship it out and has set forth a management playbook that promotes and fosters a positive work environment and in turn is valuable to our customers.
