Reflecting on 2021

As we look ahead to 2022, we reflect on the year that was with heartfelt appreciation.

­­IT’S A PLEASURE to reach out on behalf of Sean DeVries, Frank DeVries, and myself, Aaron Gerber, to share a short recap of 2021 through the eyes of Pinnacle Logistics Solutions.

Reflecting on the year that’s passed, I’m overcome with gratitude for our customers, vendors, and stakeholders. The year has challenged us to diversify and expand our service offerings. We’ve ventured into new markets, established new partnerships, and launched a new office in Edmonton, Alberta.

But most of all, it’s our teammates here at Pinnacle that inspire appreciation. At the backbone of that effort: a collection of loyal staff that have been with us since the beginning—as well as new teammates that have quickly become part of the family.

In fact, in the past year, we have grown our team by 50 percent, adding capacity and expertise in rail, marine, and road transportation.

One very special addition to the team is Dan Thorne, who joined us in the capacity of Principal Consultant. Through Dan’s guidance and leadership, we’ve discovered just how meaningful constructability reviews can be for our mining and construction friends—especially when paired with logistical expertise. Expanding our service offerings to include constructability reviews represents a significant shift for Pinnacle, and has empowered deeper engagement with our clients and prospects.

Through that engagement, we’ve succeeded in building trust—which has earned us the opportunity to do what we love most: problem solve on behalf of our customers.

TO THAT END, between the pandemic and the many global supply chain disruptions, our clients have had a great deal to navigate. But where there is disruption, there is also opportunity, and that is precisely the position we’ve found ourselves in.

As we set our sights to 2022, we see more possibility than ever. What’s more, we feel we are well positioned to steward that opportunity effectively. Through our partnerships with ADK First Nations in Fort Laird NWT, and Nuqsana in Rankin Inlet, Nunavut—along with our new office in Edmonton—we’ve established ourselves as a truly national company.

Additionally, we’ve taken steps to better serve our clients who ship in the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, as well as the Great Lakes and Arctic. We’ve expanded and built trust with our suppliers, allowing us more capacity to offer clients. And of course, we remain open minded and ready to apply our understanding of the logistics space to problem solving—always to the benefit of our clients.

If you find yourself intrigued and would like to learn more about any of the initiatives mentioned here, please visit the news section of our website at Or better yet, reach out to me or another member of our leadership team directly. We want to hear from you, because together we can discover new ways to innovate within our marketplace.

From Sean, Frank, and myself, and from the entire team at Pinnacle, we thank you for your trust and support in 2021. And we wish you a Merry Christmas and a prosperous new year!


Best Regards,

Aaron Gerber
