An Inspiring Leader in Global Supply Chain
After working in over 30 countries and living in six, Glik recognizes the importance of global trade in bringing societies out of poverty, growing small businesses, and positively impacting families. She has made an incredible impact on the advancement of global supply chains throughout her career. With Ship4wd, she ensures that small and medium businesses don’t have to worry about cumbersome customs regulations or shipping hurdles hindering their success.
In her statement, Glik emphasized the importance of shipping and logistics in a company’s core business and how it can never be overlooked. She mentioned that Ship4wd aims to provide small and mid-sized businesses with the preferential positioning and high-touch services they deserve throughout the international shipping process.
Dedication to Small and Medium Sized Businesses
In a recent article from Authority Magazine, Female Founders: Carmit Glik of Ship4wd On The Five Things You Need To Thrive and Succeed as a Woman Founder, Glik shares what motivates her to do what she does. “I’m especially focused on finding solutions for small and medium-sized businesses so that they have equal access to industry resources.” Shipping and logistics are critical elements of the supply chain. However, small and medium-sized enterprises often overlook them and do not receive the attention they deserve.
Glik adds, “Large companies have a massive advantage in global trade. Being who I am, I’ve always thought this is unfair and wondered how we could fix it. This brought, me over the last eight years, to really focus on small to medium businesses and see how we can utilize the amazing strength of global trade for everyone.”
This is where Ship4wd comes in. The company advocates for its customers throughout every step of its shipping journey by centering every decision around its customers’ needs. Glik believes, “It is a special moment when you receive positive feedback from a customer. It is okay for us to believe in Ship4wd, but it is not enough. The customers need to feel that, and they need to echo that.”
